Anatolia is a Turkish semi-fine dine restaurant located in a mall serving Turkish delicacies. With stunning red decor and very warm service, this place serves a few vegetarian dishes which can satisfy some of your Turkish cravings.
We were brought the Karisik Mezze which was a sampler tray of all their cold appetizers to start off with.Served in a traditional tray, it came with your choice of one of their salads. It was appetizing and all the dips were really good. Have it with hot khubs and you won’t even need main course.
Pretty, isn’t it? For my main I chose to have a Peynirli Pide. A Pide is the turkish version of a flatbread and generally open from top stuffed with cheese and other toppings. The veg version had tomatoes and capsicums and was quite good. I miss the Pide’s from back in the day when I was studying in Australia as a restaurant there used to make the best ones ever! I have never found anything close but it was good to know that this was available here.
I finished off with a Turkish Tea which relaxed my senses.
The desserts were okay! I don’t think my tastebuds were accustomed to it. We had Katmer which was a dish of fresh baklava. It has layers of thin pastry stuffed with fresh turkish cream and Antep pistachio powder It came to our table sizzling hot and soaked in hot sugar syrup.
Rice pudding made with milk and rice and flavored with vanilla and oven baked. The flavour was too strong for me and I didn’t really get accustomed to it.
I really liked the interiors and it’s a nice place to visit if you are in the area and want to savor some Turkish food.
