Anatolian Palace Turkish Mediterranean Grill Restaurant, Worcester – Review by HungryOwlOn August 9, 2020 by HungryOwl
My birthday is always celebrated with a meal out. To be honest this year with covid rules I wasn’t looking forward to going out, but the people at Anatolian Palace were brilliant. They had seated us at a corner table so it was a little quieter, which was really important to me as my hearing isn’t great and I replie on lip reading.
|I had an amazing cheeky vodka based cocktail to start the evening.
My starter was Calamari, which was cooked perfectly, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside
|To be honest I have never tried Turkish wine before; but when in a Turkish restaurant it would be rude to order anything elese.
It was robust and quite sharp, different from my usual choice of Italian wines. It went well with the main courses, but I wouldn’t order it again.
|FattyCat went for the Sucuk. A spicy slices of Turkish sausage which are cooked flat on the grill.
He was kind enough to let me taste and for once I wished I had been more adventurous as it was total devine. A flavour explosion in the mouth.
|FattyCat had Shish kebab for his main. Perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked,which was served with fluffy rice and side salad||I had the Incik. A lamb stew in an aubergine wrap – so tasty and very tender. My only critism is I would have like a little more mashed potatoe; also salad and stew was weird.
I would definitely order this again.
|Dessert – Yes I forgot to take a phot!
We had Sutlac which is cold creamy rice pudding which was very delicately spiced -I would love to tell you what spices so you could have a go at home, but I was lost. Maybe some cinnamon, maybe nutmeg, maybe vanillia and maybe a dash of rose water, but honestly I am totally guessing.
Fatty cat finished his meal with a Turkish coffee served in the prettiest silver cup.
Would we go again?
Most certainly. Food and service was superb.
Booking a table is essential as the restuarant was busy all evening.
