Troia Bar & Restaurant
This smart glass-fronted café, restaurant bar on Belvedere Road is neighbours with the Royal Festival Hall in that cultural hot-spot, the Southbank. The 82-dishes (excluding set, special and
children meals) offer a comprehensive taste of Turkey's national (healthy) diet. There's kisir, a cold starter of nuts, bulgar wheat, herbs and spring onions. Hearty mains include kuzu guvec, a
lamb casserole, and a delicious mariage of runner beans and onions served with a rich tomato sauce and rice called yesil fasulye. There are fish, pasta, rice, and special veggie dishes too.
Desserts make an intriguing change from treacle pudding and cheesecake. How about kaymakh kestane - sweet chestnuts sprinkled with chestnuts and served with home-made cream?
