We took a taxi from Hisaronu to Cin Bal for about 25 lira. When we arrived we were greeted by a lovely gentleman, who explained that there was no menu.
He showed us the display of raw meats, ranging from shish kebabs, chicken kebabs, meatballs to lamb chops and asked us to choose our meats. He then showed us the mezzes and asked us to select from cheese straws, houmous, aubergine salads and lots more.
We were then asked to choose a table, so we chose the Turkish Style raised wooden table with the cushions which had a circular table on top for the food. We ordered a bottle of local Angora white wine and they brought a basket of freshly baked bread.
What we did not realise was, that we had to cook our own food, they brought a lit BBQ for us to use. My daughter and I enjoyed cooking and found it quite fun. The food was all lovely and fresh. We then discovered, that there was a special dish of lamb which is slow cooked all day, which a family next to us explained was the most succulent lamb they had ever tasted.
We would have ordered this had we known. This restaurant became very busy and is extremely popular with the locals. The views of the mountains behind us was stunning and the open air restaurant was surrounded by Citrus trees. The turkish music in the background added to the realxed ambience.
It was an amazing experience, they shook our hands when we left and let us take photos of the display of meats. Not to be missed but ask for some of the famous lamb!
