One other nice shock was the group throughout lunch. I imply, this place was PACKED! And it was diners from all walks of life – employees out on their lunch break, college students after faculty, teenagers out on dates… And naturally, vacationers like us 😛
Looks as if Kervan Turkish Restaurant 케르반 is the Turkish restaurant of alternative for a lot of! And it’s licensed Halal!
One thing from the grill and Yoghurt Rooster Steak appeared like a preferred alternative. Noticed fairly just a few tables with a serving (or 2) of this dish.
I assume it might appear easy however it’s acquired all you want. A grilled rooster steak that’s been seasoned and marinated with spices. Take pleasure in with some rice and fries on the facet. Be sure you get pleasure from with the spicy tomato sauce and yoghurt on the facet!
Two objects that appear acquainted up subsequent.
The Butter Rooster is kinda what you’d count on.. however not fairly LOL! Okay lah it’s acquired that buttery flavour however it’s extra heavy on the tomato on this case. In any case, it’s a curry proper.
Proper up my alley was the Rooster Kebab Iskander – one thing I fairly get pleasure from even right here in Singapore 😀 Tasty Rooster Kebab meat piled atop white rice and topped off with some sauce. An excellent one-plate meal. SHIOK!
Okay I’m gonna be actually sincere with you – I’m not 100% positive what this one is known as 😛 I imply, on the menu the closest factor that matches (based mostly on photograph) is the Mushroom Peymajun. However I don’t recall any Mushrooms leh…
In any case, this was really a straight Cheese Pizza. It jogged my memory loads of the Gorgonzola Cheese Pizza we had throughout our final journey to Jeju 😀 Simply cheese and almonds on the pizza which you get pleasure from with some honey. Belief me – this one actually energy!
And talking of cheese…
Fairly just a few Starters to select from on the menu. Some Soup and Turkish Bread is an effective begin. Maybe some Hummus, Lavash or Salad?
The Pide is just not actually a Starter lah however it’s undoubtedly good for sharing so y’all can order extra 😀 I extremely advocate the Combine Pide which has Beef, Veggies and Cheese in it. Take a look at that stretch! And that crisp exterior is shiok! They’ve acquired different kinds of Pide to select from too.
And naturally, you’ll want to wash all of it down with some tasty drinks. The Contemporary Mango Lassi was not dangerous however I personally advocate the refreshing Mojito – non-alcoholic model in fact 😀
There’s really much more on the menu at Kervan 케르반 so take your choose. Judging by how widespread it’s with the locals, it’s protected to say that that is the Turkish restaurant of alternative. All this due to a fantastic unfold and affordable costs. They’ve acquired 10 shops throughout Seoul!
