So we went to this place called the Meat sword for dinner tonight. It was kind of my first Turkish experience. Its kind of like a family style dining I guess you can say. They bring out all of the food, there are no menus, and you share with everyone. When we first got there they had different stuff on the table for appetizers I guess. Bread, different types of humus, different kinds of salads…Not too bad..then they bring out this really long piece of bread on a board and put it in the center of the table. While you are finishing up the salads they bring out this meat on a sword, lay it on top of the bread and then you just pick off it and eat it. It was alright….on the bottom it had lamb, and then on top of that it was chicken, peppers, onion and tomatoes..Wasn’t a big fan of the lamb…when you finish the meat, they take your plate, give you a new one and then bring out fruits for your dessert. They had watermelon, peaches, grapes…then they brought out this thing that was like a fried cheese covered in a honey sauce..sounds weird and is a strange combination but was pretty good I thought. Then they brought out sliced bananas with walnuts and a honey sauce which was pretty good as well. I think that I was full before they even brought out the meat ha-ha from all of the bread that was on the table. So it was a good experience I guess and now I can say I ate at the Meat Sword in Turkey ha-ha!!!
So that was my first experience!!! Hope you enjoyed!! We are headed to site see tomorrow..wish us luck!! I'm driving ha-ha!! So more to come on that when we get back!!
