Salam Ramadan dan terima kasih kerana sudi membaca blog post dari saya Puan Editor untuk Restoran Alaturka Turkish Cuisine. Alhamdulillah, restoran kami ni baru setahun jagung beroperasi di Vista Alam, Seksyen 14, Shah Alam. Dekat sahaja dengan Hospital Darul Ehsan Medical Center (DEMC). Nyaman betul di sini.

Blog post kali ini nak ceritakan sedikit apa sebenarnya makanan Turki ni? Tak pernah lagi ada makanan Turki di Shah Alam dan memang ramai yang tertanya-tanya asal-usul makanan ni dan yang paling penting...sedap tak? Ok jom kita baca..

1. Shish Daging Kambing bersama Nasi Pilav

Perkataan "Shish" ni membawa maksud "pedang" atau "cucuk sate" dan kalau dimakan untuk berbuka puasa, memang terbaik. Daging kambing yang lembut dan enak dipotong dadu dan diperap dalam campuran rempah ratus Turki dan tomato. Kemudian, daging kambing shish ini dibakar di atas arang untuk memantapkan lagi rasa daging kambing bersama perapnya. Makanan yang popular ini dihidangkan bersama Nasi Pilav dan salad, memang rasa puas dan kenyang dengan keenakannya.

2. Pide

Pide ini bentuk rupanya adalah lapisan bayam, keju dan pilihan antara daging ayam atau daging kambing yang dibalut dengan penuh cermat di dalam roti Turki yang lain dari yang lain. Memang "win" orang kata. Bila dah di atur lapisan-lapisannya, roti Turki Pide ini dikepil tutup oleh master chef Pide kami di Restoran Alaturka. Susah nak dapat Pide jenis ni sekarang. Selalunya banyak kedai Turki tak akan kepil-kepil Pide ni. Tapi kami di Restoran Alaturka masih mengekalkan keasliannya. Di sini kami membuat Pide ini secara tradisional seperti di negara Turki sendiri. Dan disebabkan itu, Pide ini rasanya lebih mantap dan meleleh kejunya bila dipotong.. macam dalam gambar ni.

3. Kavurma

Kavurma is diced lamb sauteed with capsicum, herbs and homemade sauce with yoghurt on the side. Usually eaten with Ekmek - a type of turkish bread traditionally baked in a firewood oven. A favourite dish in the month of Ramadhan.

4. Izmir Kofte

Hailing from the town of Izmir, Turkey, the Izmir Kofte is a dish of minced lamb meatball with ingredients and spices specifically used in that region. An iftar favourite for meat lovers.

5. Baklava

Layers of filo pastry with the best pistachios and nuts to compliment is the ultimate way to end your Turkish Ramadan Iftar. Not unbearably sweet as some baklava seems to taste like, the best baklava uses honey to bind the filo and nuts together. Best served with a piping hot cup of Turkish coffee.

Restaurant Alaturka Turkish Cuisine situated in Shah Alam, Malaysia says a woodfire oven brings out the best of Turkish Cuisine. The restaurant's menu made with their in-house woodfire oven is sure to delight you this Ramadan.

The idea of opening a restaurant serving Turkish food was mooted in 2016. Why Turkish food? Because there are not many restaurants serving this healthy, tasty mediterranean cuisine. A Turkish chef from Australia was employed to assist in setting up the restaurant. He spent 3 months in doing so including teaching the staff to cook the various Turkish food.

Since opening of ALATURKA, we had many patrons, both local and foreigners who have given us good reviews, especially the locals who tasted the food for the first time. For those not in the know, we use firewood oven for all our bread-based food, and the dough is made fresh everyday.

We like to thank our patrons for supporting us thus far.

The ALATURKA team.

Have a bite!

Only the best at Alaturka Turkish Cuisine, Shah Alam.
