For a gleeful Turkish experince
My last weekend's brunch pick was The Turkish Tea House in Balwyn. I have always had a special inclination towards Turkish cuisine and so I decided to soothe my taste-buds by visiting this place.
This cute little cosy cafe is a colorful Turkish world in itself. The blue painted wall with ceramic plates catch your attention as soon as you make an entry through the door. Not only that, the lamps, the silverware, the cutlery and beautiful wall hangings all around you make you think beyond food for a minute. Nevertheless, a lot of thought and creativity has been put into the decor of the place.
The menu this cafe offers is pretty compact and crisp. My personal choice was freshly baked pita bread with three varieties of dips, a glass of hot chocolate and a bowl of quinoa salad. The lunch menu for two will cost you around $50. The food and its presentation, the platter and servings, make you feel good about what you are eating. The cherry on the top is a very warm, humble and engaging owner of the cafe.
The Turkish Tea House also has a small gift shop which offers many Turkish items on sale from cushion covers and silverware to jewellery and ceramic plates. I am surely visiting it again to buy those chromatic ceramic plates for my home. You can visit this place anytime between 8 am to 4:30 pm from Monday to Saturday.
