Turkish Delight!

Since the Sunday meetup is so full, Wendy has offered to host another meetup on Thursday evening. Please ask for Wendy when you arrive at Anatolia.

Since they only serve lahmacun (aka "Turkish Pizza") on Thursdays & Sundays, then Thursday it is.  

Also, there's an AMAZING dessert on the menu called Kunefe! It's made to order and takes a while so you must order at the beginning of your meal.

Kunefe .... $ 6.50
Tissue thin layers of rolled pastry, shredded and baked with unsalted cheese. Served warm with a light syrup.
*Kunefe is a specialty dessert and requires 20 minutes to prepare. Please inform your server in advance that you will be partaking in this "Turkish Delight".

About Anatolia:
This is, undoubtedly, one of my ALL TIME favorite restaurants in Nashville. I have never had anything I didn't love. The picture attached is my favorite dish - the Anatolia Eggplant (Baby eggplant sautéed and stuffed with seasoned lamb cubes, onions, tomatoes, bell peppers and parsley).


Turkish Cuisine is largely the heritage of Ottoman cuisine, which can be described as a fusion and refinement of Central Asian, Middle Eastern and Balkan cuisines. Turkish cuisine has in turn influenced those and other neighbouring cuisines, including that of Western Europe. The Ottomans fused various culinary traditions of their realm with influences from Middle Eastern cuisines, along with traditional Turkic elements from Central Asia (such as yogurt), creating a vast array of specialities- many with strong regional associations.

    I manually added Debra. She text saying she was coming but running a little late. So I said I would update the RSVP.

    You guys have fun tonight. I won't be able to make it. I've had standing plans for 3 weeks. So many new faces I won't get to see. Don't forget to order the kunefe for dessert (must order at the beginning of the meal)! ENJOY! Thank you Wendy for hosting.
