Turkish Delight

Turkish Delight in Belconnen is Canberra’s oldest Turkish restaurant. We’ve been here a few times and the food is always excellent. We had an early dinner here the other night after some shopping nearby.

Though the banquets are listed as being for a minimum of 4 people, they were happy to do a vegetarian banquet for 2. They never seem to mind doing this. We also ordered an extra plate of humus for Sebastian. I think we had dinner banquet #2, which was an excellent amount of food. There was a lot of it but we didn’t feel as though we had overeaten when we were finished. Starters included a couple of dips (beetroot, eggplant), bread, borek and müçver. Mains included a small pide, some veggies with yoghurt, rice and a garden salad. There was also Imambayıldı eggplant – this was outstanding, with the eggplant cooked to perfection… nice and tender. There were 2 mixed desserts: Turkish delight, baklava and ice-cream with a nice berry sauce. The meal was finished with some apple tea.

An excellent meal. I can’t wait to go back.
