Turkish cafe closes on Brunswick St


The former Turkish cafe / kebab shop in the ground floor of the Brunswick St Gallery building lost half its space earlier this year. That part became Phat Brats. Now the other half has closed, which seemed inevitable. What will come next?


  1. Alas, I met my wife in that kebab shop. We had enjoyed garlic and hummus nostalgia ever since.

  2. so sad, that was the best quality and nice staff. shall miss the spicy lamb bureks.

  3. If the Development Application is anything to go by, its going to be replaced by something called Rudy’s Diner…

  4. According to The Age today the owners of Phat Brats have taken it over and it will be a pizza place called ‘Shawcross’.

  5. They used to profess they had the “Worlds best Burgers” and they did. The $6 burger with the lot was the best. I only ate them at around 1am though…
