So I saw @crunchytiger post about the Banquet Turkish Breakfast For Two ($42.50) at Ferah Cafe and Restaurant in Newtown and I freaked the hell out because look at it! It’s BEYOOOOTIFUL! So much fricken food but all relatively healthy! Huzzah for health so that we may continue eating burgers and fries and mash and gravy 😛
But first, tea! The top teapot holds Turkish tea and the bottom teapot is hot water, so you can adjust the strength of your tea to your liking. Oh and sugar cubes for those with a sweet tooth.
YASSSS GAWD! A giant board arrives first, piled with slices of watermelon, rockmelon, cucumber, tomatoes, Turkish white cheese, kasar (traditional Turkish cheddar cheese) and lil saucers of marinated olives, jams (sour cherry and strawberry), cream & honey, tahin-pekmez (tahini mixed with grape molasses) and butter.
Then steaming hot bowls of Menemen- Turkish style scrambled eggs with tomatoes, onions and chilli, a bowl of fried egg studded with Sucuk (Turkish sausage), and a basket of fluffeh Turkish bread.
And finally the pastry board with Sigara boregi- Turkish cigar shaped pastry, made with feta cheese and phyllo dough. Definitely a feast worthy of kings!
