Mehmet's Kebab House ♥ ♥ ♥

The place looks a bit off from the outside, and I don't know whether the restaurant is called Combos Bread Company or Turkish Restaurant or Mehmet's Kebab House. There are different signs that say different things.

But the menu says Mehmet's Kebab House and menus don't lie so that's what I'm gonna
call it - Mehmet's Kebab House

The kebab house is actually quite nice (and very, very red) inside.
We were the only customers on a Sunday night. This kinda worried Mom.

The undefined object hanging from the ceiling worried her, too. She was scared of it.
"Parang spider web." (Huh??????)

We had Hummus and Spinach Meze to start. Mom tried to keep her voice down to a whisper,
but the server heard her comment, "Bakit amoy kilikili?"
She ended up eating the most, mind you.

The mezes came with freshly baked chewy pita bread topped with 5 stainless teaspoons

Lentil Soup - highly recommended by our server. Turned out it was the only soup available that night.
Turned out it was really good soup! Hearty, aromatic with a hint of heat. I will come back just for this. 



Except when I come back I will order not just the soup. Everything we had was very good!

I was surprised and rather impressed.

(Also Mother, the #1 Complainer.)

Shawarma Plate with Rice - very tasty lamb pieces on a bed of rice, served with tomatoes, onions,
yogurt and special sauce. Mix everything together and let the flavors explode in your mouth.

Shrimp Pasta - perfectly cooked ribbon pasta with baby shrimps tossed in yogurt and special sauce.
Tangy, creamy and buttery.

Dad and Benjie were talking about the Pacquiao fight, and I said I wanted to order baklava.

Mom: Ha? Bakla ba si Manny?

Mommy, anobaaaaahhhhh?????

Anyway, the baklava, like many other things on the menu, was out of stock.

So we ended up with this chocolate pudding thing made with carabao milk and
topped with Turkish ice cream
