Recommended by the hotel reception, when we were asking them where is a good place to have lunch. They gave us this namecard, and we went to hunt for it.
We found the place after we saw the banner.
We climbed a flight of stairs to reach the restaurant.
The place is an outdoor setting, they only have a shelter over the tables. I love the colours of the turquoise chairs.
The first thing I looked at the menu was the desserts. As this is our first meal in Turkey, nothing of those looked familiar at all. We look quite a long time to study the whole menu.
So wikipedia mentioned that Turkish people drink Ayran, so I had to order it.
After studying for quite awhile, we end up asking the shop owner to recommend. He said the Meat Roasting is good.
And we order stuffed mushroom for starters.
They have another outdoor area downstairs and there's a baby in a hammock.
First off, they served us bread...
With some strange sauce/spice, which taste quite nice. Maybe tomato? I really can't tell and I forgot the name for it. But it's really nice!
Then my drink! Ayran - 80% Yogurt with 20% water and a little salt. It taste really strange at the start, feels too thick for me.
This lady came up to the corner and started to take out pieces of meat to cook them. Initially I thought that corner was some fire place to warm up, I didn't know it was a cooking area.
These stuffed mushroom are amazing as they looked.
This is the best meat roasting dish I ever tasted the whole of my Turkey trip! Am glad we came here, and this dish just makes me dream of it even after 15 days... It's really good.
They come in a little pot to heat it up and we just have to mix it with the rice.
In like 10mins, it's gone!
I couldn't handle their Ayran, so I ordered another drink, which is also very popular in Turkey. Its pomegranate.
We aren't very satisfied with the first dish because it was sooooo gooood, so we thought maybe we order another dish it would also be as amazing! Well the lamb chops are ok, but the meat roasting is YUMS!
Le husband finished the lamb chops.
We had this baklava after our food, it taste super sweet like sugar overload, after 2 mouths I couldn't handle it.
We really enjoyed our meal there. If you ever go there, just order the meat roasting and forget the rest!
