In Orlando today with my sister and we stopped at Cappadocia Turkish Cuisine for lunch.  Started with some baba ghanoush and fresh bread.

This made me so happy.  The bread was hot and fresh out of the oven and the baba ghanoush was tasty.  We pretty much licked the plate clean.  We shared a couple of entrees, the lamb shish kebab and the moussaka.

The lamb was flavorful and tender.  It came with rice and veggies.  The moussaka had a wonderful blend of spices in it.  It was also served with rice and just tickled all sorts of senses in your taste buds.  My sister had never tried kunefe before, so we got one.

It’s an unusual dessert.  It’s shredded phyllo dough around a stretchy cheese with a honey sauce.  I’m not sure what was on top of this one, usually it has pistachios.  It’s not too sweet and has a very different texture to it.  It’s hard to describe.  Overall, the food was very authentic and flavorful.  Total bill with a drink was $35.

  • We’re on our way to Orlando and stopped in Lakeland for lunch at Bosphorous Turkish Kitchen.  From the moment we walked in the door, the aroma from the kitchen made our mouths water.  Everything on the menu sounded delicious, so we opted for a Mixed Grill platter for two so we could try several different things.  But first, Loren decided to try the lentil soup.

    It was a rather thin soup, but packed a bunch of flavor.  It had a deep, rich spicy flavor that consumes all your taste buds.  The Mixed Grill platter didn’t disappoint either.

    Besides the salad and rice, the dish had Chicken Adana Kebab, Lamb Shish Kebab, Doner Kabab, Chicken and Lamb Kofte.  It was all very, very tasty.  Seasoned perfectly and all the meats were tender.  I really enjoyed the texture and flavor of the Kofte.  Loren preferred the kebabs.  We were quite stuffed by the end of the meal.  Service was very friendly as well.  Definitely a place we’ll return to the next time we’re in Lakeland.  Total bill with a drink was $28.
