Yeliz Blossom, Worcester – Review by HungryOwlOn June 3, 2023 by HungryOwl
This restaurant opened a few months ago in the building that has been known as the Old Rectifying House for as long as I have been in Worcester and probably longer. The building has been lovingly renovated by the new owners.
Yeliz Blossom is a Turkish Grill. This means that food orders do not take long to come from the kitchen.
There is a reasonable wine list with a selection of South American and European wines, pus a selection of beers, spirits and soft drinks. We ordered the Montepulcino at £19.50 – it was a DOC, so we knew it was going to be ok and typical of a wine from this region.
We ordered the vegetarian Falafel – 4 little tasty balls served with salad and Pink Humus. Never had humus before, but I can say I would have this again, especially as dip with tortilla chips.
Along with the starter arrived a complimentary puffy bread and dips.
Cost was £5.65
Fatty Cat ordered the mixed Shish Kebabs. These were served with rice and chips. The lamb was to die for, sweet, tender and juicy. £16.95
I ordered the Grilled Prawns with new potatoes – the little potatoes had been fried with tiny diced peppers and crushed garlic, crisp to the teeth and then so fluffy in the middle. The prawns were perfectly cooked and yummy – but so fiddly to peel. £17.95
We had advised the waiter that FattyCat was allergeric to prawns, which was duly noted. The 2 plates of food came out of the kitchen together but were carried by separate waiters, to ensure that there was no possibility of transferrence of Prawn to the kebab plates.
Well we were both quite full so decided to share a dessert – not very Turkish, but we ordered a Tiramsu Cake – £5.95
It was ok – I’be had better and I’ve had far worse,
To sum up – the food was all well cooked and looked fabulous on the plates, the taste didn’t disappoint either. Price to portion size was good.
