Etliekmek). I can honestly say this is one of the best things I have ever eaten. the buttery mince meat, the subtle spices, and the crunchy bread just brining it all together....I dreamed about this dish. I eventually recruited some friends to join me for round two just a couple of days later.
Adana Kebab (named after their respective cities of origin) but less spicy. The infamous "Meter of Meat" is one of Turkish Villages signature styles of preparation. It arrived perfectly symmetrical with an aroma that hightened our senses for the next level of this authentic Turkish experience. The waiters came around and served each one of us a portion, but even after everyone was served, it appeared as if we didn't even make a dent from the meter long platter.
Upon first bite, my initial reaction was simply...WOW! I couldn't believe how full of flavor this lamb actually was. The heartiness of the kebab was overwhelming, I felt as if I was having some out of body culinary experience. I ate and ate and ate, I think I consumed more meat on this particular evening than I had the past 2 months.
During the course of the indulgent meat feast, we were also informed all the meat was imported from Turkey, which made a HUGE difference here. Not only was this exemplary technique, the ingredients used in every dish were all pure, fresh, and honest. The owner and chef took pride in their work, and and it really showed through with the food.
This was one of the most pleasant surprises I had experienced after a very long time. Turkish Village Restaurant is a must whether you live in Jumeirah, Marina, Abu Dhabu, or are visiting from abroad. I want to thank the team for such a wonderful meal, and I am counting the days until I reunite with the Konya and Kunafa.
