TURKISH FOOD FESTIVAL - A CULINARY JOURNEY TO TURKEY!

Turkish Food Fest!


I am a huge fan of Turkish cuisine and fortunately, Avari Towers did me some good as they launched Turkish Food Festival with great fanfare on January 21st! Avari is known for hosting quite many food festivals and luckily I was able to be a part of quite many of them. But this one I just couldn't miss!


Everyone was welcomed by a welcome drink which was a punch and tasted absolutely amazing. Very refreshing!




Salad bar had a wide variety of salad.



I tried almost everything from the main course. I started with Lahmacun which is a thin piece of dough topped with minced meat. It's more like flat bread with meat and tomatoes, I really enjoyed it! Then there were filled pita breads (I forgot the name) which were very yummy!



Turkish Mixed Grilled Kebab and Lamb with Couscous are a must must try! Anyone with strong Pakistani bbq taste buds would instantly fall in love with Grilled Kebabs. Couscous was loaded with slow-cooked, juicy and tender lamb in a rich tomato sauce.


Eggplant Wrapped Chicken Drumsticks was a unique dish to try for me. I love eggplants but I was a bit skeptical about the taste since it was wrapped around chicken but to my surprise, it tasted really nice.



Pistachio Kebabs were very different and really nice on the taste buds. So was Fatteh Bil Lahme which is basically boiled chickpeas, grilled meat cubes and toasted bread covered with yogurt, tahina and fried pine nuts.



I then tried Chicken Molokhia (which is a vegetable) savory and redolent of garlic and coriander and since I like garlic, I really enjoyed the flavour but it might be an acquired taste for some. I also enjoyed Tomato Raisin Wheat Pilaf.




The dessert bar was like a whole new world of delicious flavors and tastes!
