Born in Istanbul, Turkey, Somer grew up around kitchens - his mum was a chef / restaurateur so Somer knew right from the start it takes a lot of hard work and passion when it comes to the Food Industry.
He spent his first 25 years in Istanbul, Turkey before coming to Australia to further his education and career, then falling in love with Australia and starting his own Turkish restaurant Efendy in Balmain, Sydney.
Somer’s desire to provide an authentic Turkish experience is truly realised at Efendy. The menu, lush with dishes drawn from Somer’s Turkish upbringing, represents the best of Istanbul’s urban cuisine – fusing and refining long-held culinary traditions. Somer travels back to Turkey on a yearly basis to ensure he keeps up-to-date with contemporary Turkish food and the vibrant Istanbul dining scene.
