Troia — Lunch on 29 March 2015

Lunch at Troia, a lively Mediterranean/Middle Eastern restaurant a couple of blocks from the London Eye.

Troia Soup

The menu was diverse (and tourist-savvy) enough to include dishes like fish and chips, but the emphasis was on food from the owners’ Turkish homeland.   I started with a rich bowl of weather-appropriate tavuk çorbasi, which is chicken soup with coriander.  For some people, coriander tastes like soap.  Fortunately I’m not one of them.

Troia Ragout

The main was a smallish portion of spicy lamb casserole, slow cooked with mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, onions, and herbs, served with rice.  Smallish, but not as smallish as It looks in this picture.  That serving bowl was oversized.

I lingered for a while after i’d finished, admiring the Turkish lamps that hung from the ceiling.  It had been a pleasant meal in a pleasant room.
