It’s been far too long since I have blogged, I’m a little behind… but, I am happy to say it’s for a very good reason! I started a new position at work last Monday and I think my mind has just been so focused on that, that I haven’t really been in the right mindset to just sit down and blog. It’s a big change and there is so much to learn, but I’m really enjoying it. It’s been great so far and I’m very happy! 🙂
Now, on to some delicious food!
My friend Sayyad and I wanted to take Irene out for her birthday and she decided that she wanted to try Sofra. Sofra is probably my favourite Mediterranean restaurant in Edmonton, so I thought she made an excellent selection and I was very excited for everyone else to try the restaurant. So, we headed out with her and her husband, for a delicious dinner at Sofra.
We decided to start by sharing the 3 dip platter. We chose humus, biber ezme (red pepper dip), and patlican ezme (eggplant dip). All of the dips were wonderful. The humus was smooth and very flavourful; lots of lemon and garlic. Both the red pepper and eggplant dips were also great. These dips weren’t typical smooth dips however, instead they were a chunkier dip.
For my entrée I ordered Tavuk Sis Kebab (chicken skewer) which was served with Bulgar pilaf, organic mixed greens and grilled vegetables. I almost always order this when I go to Sofra, but I just don’t want to try anything else because the chicken is SO delicious. It is just so moist and flavourful, not even a little bit dry. The Bulgar pilaf, grilled vegetables and organic greens were the perfect accompaniments. Everything served at Sofra has so much flavour and seems to be made with such care. The open kitchen is tiny and there aren’t too many seats in the restaurant, so I think the chef is able to put lots of time and effort into making sure each plate is perfect.
