What to wear to a Turkish restaurant for my 16th birthday?
I'm turning 16 and I'm planning to have a meal out with around 10/12 friends at a turkish restaurant towards the end of January. I live in London too
I'm quite tall - 5'10" and average body shape/weight
Ideas of what to wear as the birthday girl? and how simple or dramatic my makeup should be
do you think someone this tall should wear heels?
Question answered by ClicketyClack
Some authentic Turkish restaurants will have seating on floor cushions or mats but most of them also have regular chairs at tables.
If you will be on a floor cushion, then wear skinny jeans with stretch and a sparkly top and dangle earrings. If you'll be seated on a chair, then you could wear a cute sparkly party dress. I wouldn't wear a strapless dress as it could be awkward while you're seated and eating. Either way, I'd have medium dramatic makeup. Not as dramatic as for a nightclub but more than normal. Have fun!! : }
What is the name for the tiny gelatinous cubes often served at restaurants with fancy truffles?
They are kind of like crystallized jelly cubes and are generally fruity in flavor. These are often served at fancy restaurants along with a complimentary dessert presentation of small foods (tea cookies, truffles, chocolates, etc). I'm looking for the NAME of this item.
Question answered by Jon R
Turkish delight is kind of a slightly chewy jelly candy with fruit flavor and sometimes nuts. The only other thing I can think of is agar jelly which is more like gelatin but stays firm at room temperature.
Does anyone know of any Turkish districts or areas in downtown Toronto?
Does anyone know of any Turkish areas/neighbourhoods/districts in the downtown area of Toronto or anywhere in Toronto? Which streets?
Also, does anyone know of any Middle Eastern/Arabic districts in downtown Toronto?
Question answered by Ray
As mentioned, there are various Turkish cafes and restaurants in different areas of Toronto.
There is a large concentration of Middle Eastern (particularly Lebanese/Syrian) shops and restaurants along Lawrence Avenue East between Victoria Park Avenue and Warden Avenue in Scarborough, but that's not close to downtown.

Where can I find a Turkish cooking class in London?
I've just returned from a holiday in Turkey and loved the food, and would like to learn how to make Turkish mezes. I live near Dalston, so hoping someone knows of something in that area.
Hi - thanks for recommendations of Turkish restaurants below. But what I am really looking for is Turkish cooking classes.
Question answered by εClεCtiC
You are right in it. Heaps of Turkish restaurants there to give you the best advise how to learn Turkish cooking. Go to Istanbul Iskembecisi, they used to make the best Turkish cuisine in London.
Edit: That is exactly what I meant. You say, you live near Daltson. That area is full of Turkish people and their businesses. There are lots more in Stoke Newington which is also not far from Dalston. If you make a few friends in Turkish community they can help you with Turkish cooking. Or else, look there is a meet up group in Turkish Cypriot cooking. You might want to join into this group to begin with. As well a Turkish cook book is always a good start. Once you try something out of the book offer it to your friends and if they like it that means you are doing great as a beginner.
How do you make Pilau Rice like they do in the restaurants?
Like you get in the restaurant - when its kind of pinkish - I dont mind if my attempt at making it isnt pink, but how do I get the taste right??
Sainsburys have come close to making it but its not exactly the same!!
Question answered by The Unknown Chef
They use food colours to make the various shades and saffron for the yellow, some will actually put the rice in containers and mix the colours and add it separately.
Pilou is like the Turkish Pilaf style, only with the Indian version, you use bay leaves, peppercorns, cardamon pods, cinnamon sticks, saffron, I actually use ghee for mine, and saute a few shallots or small onions finely chopped before adding the rice (rinsed and soaked for 20 minutes), now stock is fine so is plain old water, and I do mine in a slow oven 325 d For 150 d C, Gas mark 2 covered with a lid or a piece of grease roof paper and foil paper.
I am a former chef from Canada, and have made this for many years, and finally convinced my friend who runs a bistro in Liverpool to use it for his place.
How come Turkish people are not big fish eaters?
With all the water that surrounds them fish was not a popular item on many menus in the restaurants. Is there a cultural reason for that or just a personal choice?
Question answered by habisce
I am Turkish, and have yet to come across a Turk who does not like fish, however, some of the restaurants only serve traditional Turkish cuisine or regional ones. There are many of those kind of restaurants. Of the seven regions of Turkey, three have no coastline, so fish is not an essential ingredient in their cuisine. Furthermore, when I think of traditional Turkish cuisine, no particular fish dish comes to my mind...
What restaurant do you recommend for dining in Melbourne?
My husband and I travelling to Melbourne next month and would like to know of any recommended restaurants in the city. Thankyou in advance.
Question answered by Filmnoir
If you like Italian cuisine, go to Lygon Street, Carlton, Asian go to Little Bourke Street, City or Victoria Street, Richmond. For Greek, there is the area around the intersection of Exhibition and Lonsdale Streets, City. There are many Spanish restaurants in Johnston Street, Fitzroy. Brunswick Street, Fitzroy has a broad range of cuisines. Sydney Road,Brunswick has many Turkish and Middle Eastern places.
Because Melbourne has so many restaurants, competition is fierce and you should enjoy eating in any of the areas suggested above including those mentioned by " Garfield ".
What should i have to eat for dinner tomorrow at a restaurant?
(It's a Turkish / Greek Restaurant)
I'm going out for dinner for my Mums Boyfriends birthday; but I don't fancy the usual unhealthy burger with chips or a kebab.
What's something nice, not that high in calories or whatever. But is nice. Thanks :)
