Tas Pide

So…

Today was quite an experience, and after spending 5+ hours trying to get to class (read here) we finally made it to the Globe Theatre. Unfortunately we arrived too late to participate in the workshop, so we joined the class for a late lunch at Tas Pide, an Anatolian restaurant across the street from the Globe.

For starters we were given bread bowls with black and green olives and dip. The dip was creamy and tasty, and the bread was perfectly toasty – just what we needed after spending almost an hour in the wind and rain!

For our main courses we decided to just order and share some dishes while having specific entrees to ourselves. The limited number of photos on the menu definitely did not do the dishes justice! I wasn’t that hungry so I ordered a bowl of hummus (pureed chickpeas with tahini, garlic, and lemon) and a side order of french fries. The other girls ordered the following:

  • Patlican-Bíber Kizartma, fried aubergines and peppers served with fresh tomato sauce and yogurt
  • Dolma, homemade stuffed vine leaves with rice and pine kernels
  • Borek, filo pastry triangles filled with feta cheese and spinach
  • Pirasali Baklali, rice with leeks and fresh broad beans
  • …and a bowl of lamb meatballs with vegetables

We decided not to have dessert since 1) we were already full, and 2) the restaurant was a bit expensive.
