Nemrut, Southsea, Hampshire (kpw* for Week 28)   1 comment

[*kpw = kebab per week for 2013, as noted in an earlier post and the 31st entry for the 2013 Challenge]

Nemrut came with glowing recommendations from the landlord of our B&B and these were highly earned praise, in my opinion.  I’d give the meal a 9.5/10 with only partial marks off for the pita being sliced up (although it was, as the menu suggested, a form of ‘perfection’ even in this form).

My order was an Iskender Kebab wherein the meat was cooked over charcoal then heated further after the rest of the dish was assembled thus: flame proof dish, pita, sauce, thick yoghurt, the meats, and more sauce.  Heated in an oven to boiling the flavours of each layer and, indeed, the components of each layer were distinguishable and worth seeking.  Jackie had a similarly complex and wonderful dish of stuffed, grilled chicken breasts.  As the menu suggests: “perfection.”

We also opted for the lowest-rent bottle of Turkish red wine on the list and while it was a bit soft for drinking on its own, it complemented the meal marvelously.  Seek the place out and book ahead (we got lucky, but it was absolutely packed most of the evening).
