I just had the most exquisite and wonderful dinner at Anatolia. I have lived so close by for many years, walked past the restaurant most days going home from work, and yet can't recall when I last ate here. What a pity, as I should have many times.
The staff so friendly, inviting, engaging. The atmosphere, the decorations, the live spanish guitar music providing an intimate dining experience.
But then there was the food. The flavours, textures, proportions simply superb.
I had the baby octopus hotpot with a side salad. Beautifully cooked, not overspiced but sufficient to impart a heady range of flavours. The salad dressing comprising Pommegranite reduction, apple vinegar with just a hint of salt. Sweet, tart, slightly savoury the perfect foil for the hotpot.
I then had the mixed grill, the potatoes with flavours of cinnamon and cloves, beautiful, the meats tender, tangy and really well cooked. The richness of the tomato sauce over the meatball, the prawn and yet more of the yummy salad. I could go on. The desert chocolate souffle, with both a lovely crust with intensely rich moist and liquid chocolate which just melted in your mouth. The icecream with a hint of lemon/apple tea sauce again a wonderful contrast to the chocolate. And you must try the apple/lemon tea, that is such an excellent balance to the desert and great way to finish of your night.
My brother and father had a range of other meals and just as per mine they too were so impressed with the quality and integrity of flavours.
It was everything we had hoped for and then some. Will I come again, most definitely.
