Anfora Turkisches Restaurant

Tonight was Dave and Dana’s last night in Germany 😦 Luckily, we had one of our best meals yet! We went to a lovely Turkish restaurant called Anfora. We were warmly greeted by the friendly staff and delicious spicy aromas!

We started with a bottle of Turkish white wine that tasted similar to a Pinot grigio. It paired beautifully with the fresh, crispy sesame bread, hummus, and grilled vegetables with garlic yogurt- all delicious. We were really excited for our entrees!

For the main course, I had the fish assortment with sautéed vegetables and crispy pan fried potatoes. Wow! The presentation was really beautiful and the techniques were executed perfectly. Perfectly crisp potatoes. Perfectly sautéed vegetables. Best of all, perfectly pan-seared fish with awesome crispy skin and tender flesh. Well done! Adam had the spiced lamb with sautéed vegetables and a fresh arugula salad. The lamb was beautifully plated, spiced, seasoned, and wrapped in a crisp-tender pastry.

After we finished our meals, our wonderfully friendly waiter, Taskin, delivered shots of Yeni Raki- a delicious Turkish liquor that tasted similar to ouzo- sweet, black licorice with a bit of spice. Great digestive!

We couldn’t miss the pistachio-walnut baklava and Turkish black tea. The baklava plating was a work of art. It was delicious and super sweet. Excellent eaten with sips of the slightly bitter Turkish black tea. Ahhh…. So satisfying. Thank you Taskin for a great meal and awesome service!
