My friends always raved about Turkish cuisine, how authentic and yummy their Kabab's were and what a cultural experience it was to eat in Turkey. However, I never made it to Turkey. Not yet anyways.
Kosebasi, pronounced "Koshi Bashi" is a new Turkish restaurant which opened in JBR recently. It was voted as one of "World's 50 Best Restaurants" and was awarded as "the best representative of traditional Turkish cuisine". It was also cited as "the best kebab restaurant in Istanbul" by Time magazine (according to their website).
The place was well decorated, the atmosphere welcoming, and the food delicious. We tried the traditional kabab and Turkish shawerma, which is cut in sheets and served with yummy traditional bread. We finished off with a Turkish dessert and of course, Turkish coffee XD. It was as close as I would get to eating in Turkey, we loved it!
