Chef Somer Sivrioglu once again wows diners with his passionate approach to Turkish cuisine, with seafood playing an integral role on the menu at Anason. The harbourside views make a perfect backdrop for a Turkish feast, with the covered outdoor dining area proving the place to be!
Generosity and bold Turkish flavours are front and centre with this share-style menu. Order some freshly baked simits – traditional Turkish bread rings rolled in sesame seeds – to dip and soak up all best bits of the hot and cold starter mezes. Pretty as a picture, the pastourma of cured salmon glistens on the turquoise plate; dressed with fennel and pickled chillies, it’s a skilful balance of high-quality produce. For a real feast, the Tandir half lamb shoulder serves up tender, fall-off-the-bone meat mixed with spices and lemon.
PSST! Take a piece of Turkey home and purchase a signed copy of Somer's Anatolia cookbook, filled with rustic and traditional recipes to recreate in the kitchen!
