Kaşıbeyaz Restaurant in Ankara-TURKEY

-Hi everybody!
If you are in Ankara-Turkey or visiting to Ankara and you are looking for a good traditional restaurant, it is worthy to visit. Kaşibeyaz Restaurant is well- known restaurant in Istanbul-Turkey and The restaurant was opened a new branch of Ankara about 2 years ago.

There was two reason I went to this restaurant. First reason is that, I wanted to try traditional food and to experience a local culture, they were pretty good.Second reason, It has an excellent location, because the restaurant located in the middle of the Ataturk Forest Botany and we have visited it recently, The restaurant has been decorated with a nice classic style also it has South Eastern Anatolia kitchen. We had a pleasant surprise in there they offered a full selection grilled meat and kofte, flat bread, salad, grilled peppers, tomato, even excellent sliced fruits! Yes, you read that right, and I tried all of the food on my table, in addition, grilled kofte was spicy also the meat was juicy, buttery, well-done and so good. Also, If you want to experience something than typical meze or kofta-meat, you can try ‘Mumbar Dolma’ the Dolma is made from cleaned sheep intestine,(cleaned sheep intestine is stuffed with ground meat, rice, herb, spices, butter and than stuffed intestine cooks in a saucepan).

In addition, the appetiser was simple but very enjoyable. Salad was made fresh herb with grape vinegar sauce, it was mouth-watering . Service was very friendly, if you don’t know speaking Turkish it doesn’t matter, because the menu has been prepared in English and Turkish. Also if you would like to choose a clean restaurant, I have to say that, the restaurant was clean. However, their dinner music choosing was not good, they should choose a relaxing music. They have a huge, good garden and a smoking lounge. Families prefer to go there in general and Some time, Business meetings do in there. But they don’t serve booze at  Kasibeyaz Restaurant in Ankara. They serve some treat,  such as; fruit, tea and coffee.

Finally, the restaurant was no crowded too much and the food was a bit costly at this restaurant. Nevertheless, We were happy to make the reservation and I have took some photo for you. I hope, you will enjoy!

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!
