We chanced upon Bosphorus while exploring the alleyways of Souq Waqif during our visit looking for a nice place to eat. The chubby hubby was in the mood for some grilled food so he really wanted to eat Turkish food. Although there were plenty of attractive outdoor seating, it was really too hot and humid to eat outside so we decided to eat inside. They also had a terrace seating on the second floor and it would have been a perfect place to eat if only the weather was more tolerable.
I am not sure if the sign outside really meant that the area was an old prison site. If it were true, that would have been awesome.
I really did not know a thing about Turkish food so I had no idea what to order. I wanted something with tomato sauce though, not necessarily pasta but something with tomatoes. They had some pies that are made hot from the oven so I went for their Kusbasili Kasarli Pide which is a traditional Turkish pie topped with lamb cubes, melted cheese and Turkish sausage. The Chubby Hubby wanted to eat lamb but they didn’t have it available that time so he went for some Tavuk sis which is Grilled chicken breasts (i think). hehehe
They customized drinks according to what you felt like having so I told the waiter that I wanted something with strawberry and lime (I was actually craving for a mojito) and they gave me a really refreshing drink better than what I had in mind!
It was a very good meal overall and we definitely left the place with satisfied grins on our faces.
