Taking its cues from first the Byzantine and then the Ottoman empire, the Turkish culinary scene is one of the most vibrant and colourful in the world.
Serve yourself some Turkish delight with today’s Big Deal on a three course meal plus a Champagne cocktail at the popular Alla Turca on Pitt Street.
Not long after the Pitt Street restaurant opened, the Sunday Herald’s restaurant reviewer visited.
Joanna Blythman wrote that Alla Turca was ‘Glasgow’s top Turkish dining spot’; that its menu was ‘properly Turkish’ and that ‘the food tastes very fresh’.
‘One of the most professional, well-run, assured restaurants I’ve eaten in for quite some time,’ she concluded.
Alla Turca has been under the same management for eight years and is still going as strong as ever.
Today’s Big Deal on their autumn menu is a great way to taste the dishes that have made Alla Turca’s reputation.
The offer is one person to have a starter, main course and dessert from the autumn menu.
The choice of starters includes dishes such as a melon, feta cheese and mint salad; sesame falafel and humus plus chicken skewers with spicy yoghurt and salad.
Popular main courses include the stuffed aubergine with feta cheese, dill, pine nuts, rice and salad; the Adana-style kofte shish with bulgur rice and tzatziki plus the barbequed chicken shish with rice and salad.
The range of desserts includes a classic Turkish baklava with vanilla ice cream; a fresh berry panna cotta and Turkish delight with a berry crème brûlée.
As part of the offer, diners will be offered a Champagne cocktail to be served with their dessert.
Joanna Blythman is not the only critic to be impressed by Alla Turca. Hundreds of 5pm Dining customers have also liked the restaurant.
At the time of writing, over 800 people have given the restaurant a combined rating of 4.1/5. This is what a recent diner had to say:
‘Very good food with excellent service. We really enjoyed our lunch here and having only been once before I had always wanted to go back. The food was very good as was the service and the 5pm deal was ideal for us.’
