Food from my trip to Turkey

Swiss Chard Dolmas - from Parsifal, a great vegetarian cafe in Istanbul

Vegetable Kabob with Halloumi Cheese - also from Parsifal

Lentil Salad with Purslane (a green high in omega 3s) - from The House Cafe, Istanbul

Lamb Kabob with Cherries - Ciya Sofrasi, Istanbul

Candied Eggplant with Walnuts - Ciya Sofrasi, Istanbul

White Cheese with Quince Jam - from our breakfast buffet at Esbelli Evi, Urgup

Aubergine (the omnipresent eggplant appetizer) - Ziggy's Cafe in Urgup

Rocket Salad (you wouldn't believe how hard it was to find fresh greens)
Pelican Cafe, Kas

Lamb Kabob - the classic dish and oh so delicious!
Hamdi Restaurant, Istanbul

One of many mixed meze plates. This one from Istanbul.

Watch the honey drip - along the Iskital Caddesi, Istanbul

As you can see Swati and I ate very well in Turkey. Our Turkish hosts were very gracious and we had a great time. Although, I think it's gonna be a while before I can eat eggplant again... :)

Thanks to my friend Will who let me borrow his amazing SLR camera. I don't think I'd be able to capture my experience quite as well.
