A picture tells a thousand words, so here are a selection from a lunch we had back in May. We’d done a few hours at the allotment that morning and went back to continue our efforts once fortified by a delicious lunch at Pera Ocakbasi.
We ordered starters of garlic mushrooms and a selection of mixed hot meze and shared a main of halep – pieces of minced lamb kebab and cubed bread in a tomato sauce. Olives, pickles and bread were served on arrival and the main came with a large side salad and an onion side dish. Nearly everything was superb, especially the mushrooms, fresh bread and kebab, with the only let down being the use of very stale oil to fry the bread pieces used in the halep.
