You know you’re in for a good meal when you’re given two tables for a table for two.
I’ve only had Turkish food a handful of times and if there’s one thing I remember, it’s that it’s always a feast! And that’s the vibe we’re getting at Turka, which is filled diners with tables filled to the brim with delicious share plates. It’s a cosy Turkish cafe/meze bar located on the busy corner of Pacific Highway and Willoughby Road.
It’s a relatively new addition to the Crows Nest dining scene, one of the few Turkish restaurants in the area. And there’s plenty to choose from with an extensive breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. We’re eyeing the Turkish breakfast for our next visit, but we’re here first for dinner, a menu made of dips, cold meze and hot meze.
Engina – Artichoke Hearts
House made Lemon Tea
I have enough trouble choosing from one pager brunch menus, so if you’re ever caught dining me with at Vietnamese, I sincerely apologise in advance for the length of time you’ll be waiting for me to decide on what to order. Especially when there’s a menu as enticing as the one at I Love Pho.
It might be a bit of a cheesy name, but it voices my thoughts exactly. I mean, who doesn’t like Pho?
Warm Rice Paper Roll ($7.60)
Some month and a half since returning home from holidays, and still suffering from mild post-Japan depression, I thought I’d treat myself to some ramen. Even if the recent 30 something degree heat was more a salad kind of weather.
I’d been meaning to try Ryo’s, having driven past the bright orange building and the long queues numerous times. It’s not exactly located in the most convenient place, but after driving around the block in circles for a while we eventually found street parking and breathed a sigh of relief when we saw that the queue wasn’t as long as we had expected.
