IMG_0460I’ve just got back from an amazing trip to Turkey and I had no intention of reviewing the trip here. That was until we bumped into a guy called Deniz. As it turns out, he used to live in Norfolk and his daughter lives in Wymondham. He revealed that he owned a restaurant in Hisoranu where we were staying. It made sense to visit.

We sat outside near the road and quickly ordered a drinks. The choice of wine was quite basic, we chose the red. There was a lot of choice on the menu, however. It took us a long time to choose what to eat.

IMG_0453To start I had the potato skins with bacon and cheese. They were as amazing as they look. The potatoes were soft, the cheese nice and salty and the bacon gave it a bit of crispiness.

IMG_0456Next I had one of the best dishes of the entire trip, the lamb shank with masala sauce. The lamb was falling off the bone, the gravy was rich and the mash potatoes were so creamy.

IMG_0457On of my companions had the fillet steak, which was amazingly cheap at about £11. It look delicious and was cooked perfectly. It was seasoned wit salt and oregano, which gave it a more interesting flavour that most steaks I’ve had. It’s a flavour I was tasting throughout the trip.

IMG_0458We also tried the lamb shish kebab which came with rice, chips and vegetables.

IMG_0459Finally another lamb dish, cooked to perfection. The potatoes accompanying it were amazingly seasoned too.

We ate a lot of good food while on holiday but this is one of the places that really stood out. Unfortunately we ran out of time and I didn’t get to try their baklava but I’m pretty sure we’ll be going back.

It’s on the road from Ovacik to Hisaronu. If you’re staying in the Greenland Hotel (as we did, highly recommended), it’s a short taxi/bus ride or a 30 minute walk.

Ovacik Mah. Ataturk Cad. 107. Sok. No:1 Oludeniz, Fethiye, Ovacik 48300, Turkey
