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!

- to tender and tasty experiences xx

I'v been to the one in Bahrain when it first opened in City Center, bas it wasn't as great as everyone said it was.
There's also another Kosebasi in Turkey, in Riena specifically, which is supposed to be awesome.

Hey there just happened upon your blog via Bing after I entered in, "Blogger: Fastidious Babe" or perhaps something similar
(can't quite remember exactly). Anyhow, I'm happy
I found it simply because your subject material is exactly what I'm looking for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don't
mind if I collect some information from here and I will of course credit you
as the reference. Thank you very much.

First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .

net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on numerous
websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard very good things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello there! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this
problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Appreciating the commitment you put into your
blog and in depth information you offer. It's good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same out of date
rehashed material. Wonderful read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm including
your RSS feeds to my Google account.
