Big Chefs, the restaurant for those with big appetites.
Before we get to the meat of the matter, let’s give kudos to the ambiance of Big Chefs. From the hanging lights that look like twinkling fairies in the high ceiling to the beautiful bookcases filled with, well, books, this place is just a lovely spot to dine in.
We started off with an oldie but a goodie: the Mezze plate – a mixture of hummus, mutabbal, pickles and grilled halloumi. Then we tried the Goji Berry and Avocado salad which really hit the spot with its delightful mix of flavors.
For the main dish, everyone talked up the Yogurt Kebab so we simply had to try it. At face value just layers of bread, kebab, tomato sauce and yogurt, this dish transformed into something greater than the sum of its parts and left us absolutely delighted and satisfied.
Ah, but then there was dessert. The best baklava we’ve had in the longest time. Sweet but not too sweet, you’re invited by the warmth of the pistachio within the juicy flakes and the perfect topping of vanilla ice-cream.
Pro tip: you can’t have something this tasty sweet without the tasty bitterness of their excellent Turkish tea, bringing both worlds together in a subtle explosion of joy and yumminess.
