RESTAURANT REVIEW/ DEVELI RESTAURANT-ANKARA

 

Inside Develi Restaurant-Ankara/ Turkey.

Inside Develi Restaurant-Ankara/ Turkey.

Hi everyone!

I went there with a few of my friends and we were delighted to sit down for lunch at Develi Kebab Restaurant. We had a nice table by the window. The restaurant located in famous Palestine Street (Filistin Caddesi) in Ankara –Turkey. This restaurant opend at 2016 and the restaurant has some branches in Istanbul and the restaurant is one of the popular restaurant in Turkey. The restaurant’s decoration is very nice, clean, elegant. Inside, the space is extremely welcoming and the guest can see right into the bar. Develi restaurant serving up generous portions of kofte and lahmacun (Turkish pizza) cooked in their restaurant oven and the restaurant takes inspiration from Gaziantep(Antep) traditional rich, flavours, cuisine. They belive fresh is the only way to enjoy food and every meal prepared at the restaurant kitchen is fresh.

When we arrived they brought us some pickled vegetables, warm bread. Then we were handed menus. We ordered some cold starters , one of them was cigkofte (typical Turkish raw meat, and you had to take a small bit of the raw meat, add some fresh lemon juice to it and wrap it into a lettuce leaf, not my favorite bit of the meal but I did enjoy it. Then we ordered Gavurdagi Salad( consist of tomatoes and red onions, green fresh pepper, walnuts and other ingredients) , hummus. I loved the salad and hummus, they were very tasty. We did not order a spate main course each and asked the waiter to bring us a big round lahmacun, ( the round shape Turkish pizza,) and we shared them. The lahmacun was thin and crispy , tasty. We ordered Pistashio Kofte ( which really did taste like pistachio, and Develi restaurant is the creator of Pistashio Kofte.) . And then we ordered Katmer dessert which was rolled baklava pastry with pistachio and natural cream. The portions were generous and came with the ice-cream. The Katmer was also very delicious and they served traditional Turkish tea-free of charge.

I had an excellent meal at Develi Kebab Restaurant and the servis was very nice and we never waited more than 5 minutes for an appetizer, or 15 minutes for our main dish. If you want to order wine, they had adequate of wine and you can try to taste Local Wine. Also they had Turkish Raki. The service was very friendly and attentive with great stuff , a caring restaurant manager.

Finally,The service was very friendly and attentive. Prices are ok, too, considering the quality of the food. We would recommend this restaurant if you want to try the Lokal restaurant and new places for delicious food and a lovely atmosphere.

COLOURFUL AND THRILLING BUTTERFLIES-

image

In August I came to London for a visit and since I have spent some quality time, the base of my exploration was of course a Cooking class in London but I went to a Butterfly exhibition too, that took me back my childhood. Also I have learned more about the butterfly’s life and as you walk through the butterfly house, you can witness the life cycle of the butterfly from egg to crawling Caterpillar and then into the amazing butterfly.

You can sea there that Butterflies have a very characteristic flying style and Butterflies go through a complete metamorphosis. This means that there are four parts in a Butterfly’s life.

The first part is the egg; a Butterfly starts its life as an egg.

The second part is the Caterpillar, It looks like bird droppings on a leaf but it is a Caterpillar in disguise.

The third part is the chrysalis ( sometimes called pupa)

The fourth is the adult; this adult will continue the Cycle and Butterflies are able to change from one stage to another rapidly.

Butterfly wings are  covered with thousands of tiny, overlapping Scales, which are tiny sensory hairs and they are pigmented with a melanins which give them yellows, browns, but many of the blues, reds,blacks, greens, and iridescent colours are created by the micro-structures of the hairs not only but also The butterfly’s body is covered by tiny sensory hairs.

In addition, butterflies can fly when their body temperature is above 27C.degrees-(81°F) and adult butterflies feed only a liquids nectar from flowers , they obtain sugar for energy and the other minerals for reproduction.

 

I took some photos for you and I hope, you enjoy as well as I enjoyed!
