The first trying some Turkish food locally at Sahara Bar & Restaurant. Quite a pleasant first experience especially their appetizers!

We had their Cacik. It’s like served chilled, yoghurt mixed with cucumber, garlic and herb. It’s kind of light and refreshing, and makes you wanting to have more.

Their lamb is well seasoned with herbs and spices and done pretty well. It compliments very well with the spicy and tangy salsa salad. Their Kofte lamb on the other hand is a little on the tougher end. Neither of them has a strong gamy smell.

Their dessert homemade kunefe is interesting too. It’s shredded filo pastry filled with cheese and baked. On itself there’s not much flavor to it, it’s plain and chewy but once you add the cream and syrup, it’s a whole new level.

A good substitute for a trip to turkey 😅.

An interesting find of Cuban-Caribbean fusion cuisine at La Boca.

The flavors of the dishes mainly come from different herbs and spices, which I would say it’s kind of moderately intense.

Some of the highlights we had include their Pulpo Gallego ($17) ie Octopus with chorizo and Spanish paprika. It tasted like the Chinese version of baby squid head you find in zichar stall but doused in spices. Slight crisp to that chewiness. Their Jerk chicken poppers definitely goes well with a glass of beer! The last dish was this clams based dish in sambal and kind of peppery sauce? It has a nice little fiery kick to it!
