Turn up the heat at Turkish steak restaurant

I am absolutely in love with the food served here, be it their juicy adna kebabs or the flamed ribs; they have pioneered each dish in a beautiful way. Turkish steak restaurant is located near Mercato mall and its actually a villa with lots of space to accommodate big group of people.

Started off with their grilled chicken salad where the chicken was spiced perfectly and grilled, loved the neat presentation of this and the flavors in this salad were spot on.

Next, I had the Oven cheese mushrooms that you can find under hot starters in their menu. These were gorgeous baked mushrooms oozing with the right amount of cheese. My advice: have them hot and let them sway you 🙂

Had their butcher’s cheese kofta, these were the showstoppers of my entire dining experience at Turkish steak restaurant. They were not over cooked and the juices in the meat were preserved well, also the cheese in koftas was not overpowering and formed a lovely lacey texture when cut open.

Also had the sultan (2 plate) which comprises of adna kebab, kuzu, shish kebab, chicken shish, lamb chops and tomato kebab. I’m a hardcore carnivore so I conveniently ate everything on this platter except for the tomato. Loved this so much. So difficult to decide my favorite element from this platter but I would go for the shish kebabs. They were amazing!

The drink I ordered was called Honey roasted pear and I swear I have never tried a drink that is this refreshing before. The combination of honey, vanilla, cinnamon and apple was just mind blowing.

They have amazing variety of steaks and burgers and platters to share. I highly recommend you visit this restaurant with your friends who love meaty delicacies especially authentic Turkish flavors.

For the dessert, I had authentic turkish baklava with vanilla icecream, the baklava was melt in mouth good and added an extra zing to my wonderful dining experience.

Thank you Team Turkish Steak restaurant for hosting me. Your service is superb.

Maximum Meaty Madness at The Meating Room

A true foodie will understand the happiness of having a pure carnivore dinner full of different cuts of meat and sauces. I have always believed in good food that’s not heavy on the pocket and that’s exactly what the meating room offers. Their menu is full of creative meaty dishes on super affordable prices. No wonder, these guys have been bagging so many awards from Zomato UAE and the title of top 100 restaurants by Time Out Dxb.

There is an outdoor seating area that’s decorated simply with light bulbs on top and looks pretty nice. The indoors are not that tiny either, it can fit 20 foodies at a time. You can actually watch your food prepared  through the glass window into the kitchen where you can have a glimpse of chefs hard at work. The door to kitchen literally says “Chefs at work”.

Their head chef Mr.Ram made sure that we were satisfied with the food and kindly asked for any feedback as well. These are the little things that enhance an individual’s dining experience. The only suggestion I have for you is to work more towards cleanliness as the menu cards that you handed me over had stains on them.

We started off with colorful masala papad and couldn’t help but notice the not-so-mainstream wall art that shows a parallel world. I was really impressed by this.

I had chicken and cheese croquettes with a red schezwan sauce, loved the cheesy bites of minced chicken that was seasoned lightly and paired amazingly well with the spicy sauce.

Then came in the showstopper platter that was full of meaty delicacies and I couldn’t help but drool all over the meat. There were lamb chops that were well done and juicy, the classic chicken tikka, wings, shish beef boti, grilled vegetables, dips and fries. I went from one meat to another and gobbled up the entire platter. Every piece of meat was spiced appropriately except for the seekh kebabs that could use some more spices.

So glad that we ordered their mango minty fizz drink along side the meat because it was tangy, sweet and had a subtle hint of herbs that tasted so well altogether.

For the dessert, my heart was set on the gulab jamun cheesecake yet I overcame this idea and went ahead to order the chilly chocolate because I have never tried one. It came in a piping hot skillet with warm chocolate brownie and a generous scoop of vanilla icecream on top garnished with an actual whole red chilli. The chocolate had an evident kick of chilli in there and tasted beautiful with the icecream and some chilli flakes.
