Interesting historical cuisine

The dishes on the menu are based on the Ottoman cuisine and delicious, but quite unexpected. They are simple to prepare such that beginners can easily make them. Very chill atmosphere and a welcoming staff as well.

This was a fun experience. It would be nice to have it a bit more hands-on though (my learning style). For most of the dishes I watched the chef do the work. Having each of us make a smaller version of the dish instead of the chef making one dish is a nice way to learn. Delicious recipes made!
