As good as these treats look, they taste even better. You just cannot beat Turkish cuisine. I really do think though that the farther you go from Istanbul, the better. I think you really get the true authentic Turkish experience. Not to say that you don't in Istanbul, but I find everything is so fast paced, or ready done presented buffet style- they serve you though.
These meals are from a restaurant chain in a city not far from Ankara. The restaurant is called Baloglu. Forgive me, I am using an English type pad, so I don't have access to the Turkish 'g' with the caron above it.
I will do a full review on this restaurant soon in another post, but until then feast your eyes on a few select items from their menu.
