I went a few week backs with the Venezuelan gang to a Turkish restaurant for a birthday celebration. I always enjoy Turkish cuisine, the mix of flavours, the amazing sauces based on yogurt, and even the fast food style you find here in London with Kebab parlours everywhere. I’d have to say about these places that one of the best I have tried so far is Bosphorus in South Kensington, however I have to go and check a place in Chiswick that my friend Luna recommended.
Troia is a typical Turkish restaurant, nice decoration, an amazing and exotic selection of lamps, good service, nice atmosphere, and reasonable prices. We were around 16 people in the restaurant so for logistic reasons we went for the set menu which includes humus, cacik, falafel, borek, karisik izgara, kuzu sis, tavuk sis, and turlu.
So if you want to try Turkish cuisine here in the city and you are tired of the kebab places I would recommend to go Troia, you can enjoy an excellent meal and even have an Efes beer or smoke shisha.
The name of the restaurant reminded me the Seinfeld episode “The Label Maker” where Kramer and Newman are playing risk in a subway train.
Newman: Are you sure you know where the impound yard is?
Kramer: Oh, stop stalling. Come on.
Newman: I can't think, there's all this noise.
Kramer: Or is it because I've built a stronghold around Greenland? I've driven you out of Western Europe and I've left you teetering on the brink of complete annihilation.
Newman: I'm not beaten yet. I still have armies in the Ukraine.
Kramer: Ha ha, the Ukraine. Do you know what the Ukraine is? It's a sitting duck. A road apple, Newman. The Ukraine is weak. It's feeble. I think it's time to put the hurt on the Ukraine.
Ukrainian: I come from Ukraine. You not say Ukraine weak.
Kramer: Yeah, well we're playing a game here, pal.
Ukrainian: Ukraine is game to you?! How about I take your little board and smash it!!
