Tavaci Recep Usta restaurant is a great traditional meat restaurant in Ankara city the heart of Turkey. The restaurant is a ethnic Turkish cuisine. It is the favourite lunch and dinner place for local community.
When you went the place you are welcomed with so friendly and smiling face by the waiters. They are dressed neatly.You can see the luxuries of modernity in the restaurant and also the restaurant is very large. For those who don’t book a table and are waiting. There is a cosy atmosphere in the restaurant and pictures of famous people displayed on the walls.
The menu offers a wide variety of tasty starters. We had the Icli Kofte ( stuffed ground meat in bulgur ball) and the Coban Salad served with pomegranate sauce. The main course consisted in the RIB EYE STEAK DOLMA (Rib eye steaks stuffed with rice- The dish is definitely Turkish most traditional recipe but cooking at home kitchen is very hard because the rib eye steak dolma cooks in the traditional big stone oven. The rice is mixed with aromatic spices and roasted nuts, herbs and then the mixed rice is filled in the lamb rib eye steaks then the rib eye steak is sewed up , it is cooked in stone oven) ,Sac Kavurma (Fried meat in iron plate) , which really pleasured us. It all was followed by a delicious Semolina halva with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert and The dessert served with traditional Turkish cafe.
All the dishes were fresh and the chefs takes great care in selection the best quality meat and vegetables. Thankfully the owner and hostess, is always around willing to conversation some kind words with all their clients. The service is extremely good can have profound influence.
That the service does not accompany any kind of booze, because of the restaurant serve for family and children. Tea and Turkish coffee is free in the restaurant.
Despite the a bit much high price of the food, I had a pleasant and all meze was free, thrilled dinner experience with food of the most delicious flavours. For this reoason I highly recommended going to the Recep Usta restaurant.
