My friends and I had an amazing time at Papa Theo's place last night.
The food was delicious. I am vegan and my friends are vegetarian. He was able to cater for all of us, and made an effort to source special vegan Turkish bread (with homemade bread including dairy for the vegetarians) and made an amazing vegan dessert (in addition to his Turkish/African dessert - Kunefe - for the others).
Everything tasted really fresh and great quality. My favourites were the babaganoush (lovely smoky charred taste), the okra (sometimes can be slimy but his were perfect), the mini peppers (not had these before) and the green bean main (lovely natural sweetness and rich flavour in sauce). Oh and of course the dessert.
He threw in a lovely bottle of Turkish white wine too.
He was very hospitable, his kids were around at the start - quite playful! We enjoyed talking to him and learning about the dishes and his background. And he is super fast to respond to messages. Will be back again.
