Alla Turca, 192 Pitt Street, Glasgow – March 2009

We had been meaning to go here for ages, so threw caution to the wind and booked.  We choose the £12 menu which is seemingly the Brasserie menu.

whilst waiting for our starter we received a bowl of hummus and some olives with turkish bread to keep those hunger pangs at bay – went down very nice with the glass of turkish white that we decided to try.

Turkish Delight and Blueberry Creme Brulee

Baklava with Vanilla Ice Cream

and a kir royale each with pudding.

Service was very friendly, toilets sparkling!, only downside was the chairs were a bit cheap looking (and feeling) and the tables a wee bit too close for comfort.  Otherwise, the food was delicious and we didn’t leave hungry or too full – just a nice balance.  Looking forward to going back to try it again.

    I agree, a perfectly balanced good food with a nice background music. Definately worth a try!
