Emirgan Sutis Turns One
Having put away blog writing for travel, I am back again to update you with many of my interesting experiences from the time I have been absconding from writing here. One of many was first year anniversary of Emirgan Sutis! Having ventured to their branch on Al Emadi Financial Square and dining there only to realize I would be making a return there for sure, I was pleasantly surprised when I got an invitation to join them for this wonderful occasion. Joined by my favorite fellow food bloggers - Hungry Birds Doha, Life with Karlly, and Ms Hala Co We were welcomed to the venue with much warmth, and friedliness considering how chilly the night was, we chose to dine in. But, if the weather's great I'd suggest you dine out.
We were welcomed to our starters - Borek with meat, Hummus, Mutabbal, Muhammara, Su boregi, Dolma, Mucver, Haydari, and Pita with braised meat.
Among other things served were Saslik and the Sutis Gourmet!
A huge platter of mixed kebabs were placed in front of us! My favorite was definitely the lamb chop - it was so succulent, and let;s not forget delicious!
We were then given a choice of one main dish out of three - Iskendar Kebab, Chicken Kebab, and Sarma Beyti Kebab. Having eaten Iskendar the previous visit, I chose Sarma Beyti this time. And, if I were to go back I'd chose Iskendar all the way!
If you haven't tried them, you are seriously missing out on some authentic Turkish food coming your way. The restaurant has an extensive menu with Breakfast specials, A variety of Eggs selection, Borek , pastries, pitas, soups, appetizers, salads, sandwiches, breads, and a lot more to choose from! The prices are affordable, and the servings are huge, and might I also add they are a bit heavy especially if you are going for the kebabs and you need to go for them!
