Unbelievable. Onza is world class.
Turkish food which is as tasty as it is exotic.
Our waitress, Hallel, from Georgia (not the US version) makes sure we have plenty to eat and drink, including sharing a shot with us after dinner.
Warm eggplant with yogurt, butter & pistachios (the creamiest baba ghanoush imaginable) with Simit bread for dipping. Follow that with an indescribable egg dish, an emulsion with vegetables, pieces of bread and spices. Hallel tells us how it is made but the noise in the restaurant, I have no idea what she said. She gave us spoons so we could make sure to eat every drop, that much I understood.
Then send in some "Lahmi Bajn” which was chopped beef, onions, tahini, tomato, in long Turkish yeast dough bread shell called pide.
Dessert? I have no idea but we loved it. We were then told we didn’t eat it right. We ate it from top down and experienced the layers of sweet cream and other oddities on at a time. Hallel said you have to start at the bottom and experience all of the flavors at once. I assume she is right.
Had to go back to try it again, so we make a reservation for the next night. We ordered a whole bunch of different things including a mushroom/polenta dish and the other egg dish.
Many reasons to return to Israel, and this is one of them
