Lamb is big here; it’s the equivalent of shrimp in the movie Forrest Gump. One can have their lamb grilled, on a kebob, roasted, stewed, and the list goes on. When Shannon and I popped into the Anatolian House, located in Sultanamhet near the Blue Mosque, we knew we were in for a treat. I opted for the traditional stewed lamb chops. Before our meal arrived though, we enjoyed Raki, a traditional Turkish beverage. It is very similar to French Ricard and Pernod due to its aniseed base.
As I have learned through my travels, “When in Rome, do as the Romans!”. Keep the raki flowing and the lamb coming please!
