Turkish Lamb

I apologize for my lack of professional bloggery, I am a newbie, you know. Had dinner at a terrific new Turkish restaurant nearby and failed to remember that I needed to take pics of the food and stuff and use them in my blog. Again, my apologies to you and to the owners of what I hope will soon become a very popular restaurant.

Dinner at Ephesus Mediterranean Grill began with a beautifully seasoned soup made with red lentils and tomatoes. Also shared a huge salad of cucumber, tomatoes, feta, and a wonderful lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and herb dressing. The entree was a superb marinated lamb sis kabob on a pile of seasoned rice with onion, red cabbage, roasted pepper, and roasted tomato. The lamb was perfectly cooked to medium rare tenderness. The staff even enjoyed a long chat with my husband about some interesting happenings he experienced at a restaurant in Turkey. Service was attentive but not hovering. The decor minimal, but what they had was right. Good deep golden sand colored walls paired nicely with obviously Middle Eastern in design sheers on the windows. The music was well chosen, and made one wish they knew how to belly dance.

My new goal in life is to make sure this place gains a loyal and large clientele as I plan to eat there regularly.
