This week, we paid a visit to Lokanta, a modern Turkish restaurant in Qurum rooted in tradition.
A very welcoming staff received us at the entrance and showed us to our table. We took more than five minutes to place our order as the menu was rich with options.
We ordered for appetisers a cold mezza which consisted of hummus, olives, Muhammara and Baba Ganug. I also asked for a bowl of yoghurt and cucumbers.
The taste was okay, nothing special about the quality apart from the freshly baked bread. The bread alone is a reasonable excuse to come back to this place.
It was not my first time at Lokanta, I have been fond of the place for some time.
For main course, I made a beginner’s mistake by ordering fish and chips. Not a Turkish speciality, and they proved that. My friend ordered a chicken-vegetable dish with rice on side and a plate of hot appetisers.
The plate has four pieces of different fatayirs, one stuffed with beef, another with chicken, the third had cheese on top and I can’t remember the forth as my friend swallowed it before I had a chance to click a picture.
The highlight of our late lunch was the fresh juices. I had Red Sea, a highly recommended mixture of pomegranate and pineapple.
The waitress offered us complimentary Turkish tea and we left the place with happy bellies!
