Last Friday night, Edentiti had an office get together at the Ottoman’s.
We had the degustation menu.
A selection of house made dips and pide bread.
This was followed by:
Borek hand made filo pastry rolls with Bulgarian fetta cheese and parsley
Crispy zucchini puffs served with yoghurt & dill sauce
Chargrilled ( or deep fried?) mushrooms tossed in cumin oregano and mild Aleppo chilli
Dolma: salmon, cray & prawn rolls wrapped in vine-leaves, lightly battered, served with savoury piquant sauce. But I could not taste the cray nor the prawn but could see mashed potatoes.
Grilled skewered chicken which was cooked to perfection, served with rice and salad.
A grilled minced lamb piece
Kulbasti thinly sliced veal seasoned w/ mild chilli, chargrill and served lemon mustard sauce
Dessert: a selection of Turkish pastry Turkish delight and chocolate cake
The food was good without being anything special. A downer was the serving of portions straight onto dirty plates. Either put out dishes from which we serve ourselves or give us clean plates.
However, this was easily forgotten and forgiven as we had great company.
