Matbah Restaurant @ Istanbul

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Ottoman Empire ruled a large part of the earth and therefore acquired quite a taste for the exotic. In the Topeka Museum, there is an Ottoman recipe book that listed over 300 ways of cooking the aubergines (brinjals in Singapore speak). Matbah is a quaint little restaurant next to the Haga Sophia that has restored the cooking style of the Ottoman Imperial courts.
