It’s been a while since I had coffee somewhere new for this series. We went to the restaurant we had our first date many years ago. The food was devine and obviously I had coffee with my meal.
We went to Kafe Serefe, a Turkish themed restaurant. They welcome you by letting you wash your hands with rose water, which makes your hands smell so good for the whole evening and also giving you a piece of Turkish delight candy. Instantly you feel like royalty.
There is also complimentary freshly made bread with a dipping sauce when the menus arrive. I ordered regular coffee and Dylan a rose flavoured milkshake. Yes, rose flavoured. I don’t know how, but it’s like you’re drinking roses.
I tried to take photos of the decor, but as there is mainly mood lighting it all came out a bit dark. Periodically a belly dancer comes out and dances by the tables. It’s slightly akward, but still an experience. I got these two blurry snaps from over Dylan’s shoulder. I was way to shy to take pictures while she was at our table.
I always eat something new when we go to this restaurant as everything is decent sized portions and oh so good. Since I am trying to be vegetarian and haven’t tried their veggie menu yet, I ordered the platter. Dylan ordered a burger. I will just share the photos of the food as I think it speaks for itself.
I enjoyed every section of my meal. As always the portion size was good. We left some over in order to have some dessert, served with Turkish coffee. We ordered the Turkish tray for 2, which is a selection of the desserts on display.
Two hours later we walked out of the restaurant feeling full and happy with our dinner choices. I am happy dinner was a bit more of an experience than just a quick Nandos.
Mona – full and feeling happy
