Growing up, a lot of my friends were from Turkish origin, so many of these flavours are quite familiar and take me back to my teenage years.
I had decided to try out a new restaurant that offers different kinds of arabic and turkish cuisine, but has actually specialized in oriental desserts.
First, we started off with something quite hearty though, and went for a variety of pastries with different fillings.
One of them was Lahmacun, a kind of turkish pizza, then Pide, a soft dough with meat- and vegetable toppings, and lastly some dough stuffed with lamb meat and spices.
I love how hearty these oriental dishes are, they can satisfy any hunger without being too greasy or heavy.
And the subtle heat of the meat and vegetables fit perfect
Sometimes I can't control it, I just get drawn to a song and feel the need to dance to it.
When I first heard the song, the beginning was what really caught my attention - he is performing it with such passion in his voice!
Then of course the chorus gets much more loud and dramatic.
I love when singers display their true talent like this, focusing on the voice and the melody.
