Turkish Twofold

I have had Turkish food twice since I’ve been home. Kind of random I know, but I love it. Yesterday for dinner, my parents and I shared some really delicious mezes with warm bread, similar to pita but even better. (Mezes below: spinach with yogurt on top, cacik which is just yogurt with cucumber, baba ganoush, and beans in tomato sauce). Happy but filled with the appetizers, we split an entree: chicken breast with rice pilaf. Everything I ate yesterday evening was delightful.

For lunch a couple of days ago, my mom and I ate at another Turkish restaurant which was also very good. They served us really good bread (a common theme I noticed in both Turkish restaurants). To start, I had red lentil soup (it did not look red, but it sure tasted good). And for my main course, I had some sort of chicken sausage. I usually wouldn’t order sausage in a restaurant because it’s not one of my favorite foods to begin with. But this sausage was very good, and it came with rice pilaf and arugula salad. Now, all I need is some baklava.
