Discover all that Turkish food has to offer in this modern restaurant with Middle Eastern influences throughout. Specialising largely on Ottoman cuisine, Fora describe their food as a fusion of ‘Asian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Balkan dishes.’ After eating here you’re sure to come out an expert in Turkish cuisine and beyond.
Its extensive menu can look a little overwhelming at first, but whatever you order is guaranteed to impress. First try its selection of cold starters. The stuffed vine leaves and cacik are certainly different, but tasty all the same. When it comes to mains it makes sense to order something from the chargrill to keep things authentic. All marinated with a mix of exotic spices, go for the lamb kofte or chicken beyti with lavash bread. We suggest ordering a few different dishes to get a full feel for the cuisine, but it also offers the Ottoman feast. Great if a big group decide to pay Fora a visit.
If you fancy eating from the sea, its fresh fish menu served with salad and potatoes is a simple but satisfying option and the vegetarian dishes still give you the full taste of Turkish cuisine without all the heavy meat influences. Think halloumi kebabs, moussaka and a Mediterranean quinoa salad, a light but filling addition to the menu.
To finish off your traditional Turkish experience you have to try the classic sweet treat, Baklava. Thin layers of filo pastry filled with pistachio syrup sounds sickly sweet but we promise it has the perfect balance to end a meal; you might even want to order a second portion to take home.
With so much to choose from, you can be fully educated on Turkish cuisine at this restaurant. All while enjoying your food in a lively and exciting atmosphere. Fora is ideal for big groups with its wide range of group menus but if you want an intimate dinner, you’re catered for too.
