Went to my local Turkish restaurant for the first time ever.. and it won't be my last visit.

Joypur (Jaipur) Honey Duck Nov. 23rd, 2007 @ 10:44 pm
The Arzoo curry house (best one in Bicester by quite a long chalk) does this wonderful dish, which is served (by them at least) with fresh chilled strawberries, which creates a wonderful contrast to the spice of the sauce and the duck. Also has copious amounts of coriander, and, obviously, honey.

Presentation at this place is always top-notch - they have the biggest variety of serving dishes I've seen... anyway - enough reading, more looking:

Finally got a new camera so I can start posting meal photos! Maybe this will encourage others, too.

Last night for dinner I made quinoa...

Cheesy Noodle Bake

Some friends came over and we made stuffed tomatoes. Also steamed some green beans with dill (yum!), made some barley, and had strawberries too. The meal:

nothing fancy, bread crumbs/cheese/eggs/spices filling in the tomatoes, topped with shredded mozarella and the fairly ridiculous looking garnishes, baked for a half hour or so - it was tasty!

I just joined this community because I've been posting my food in my own journal and wanted to share else where.

I really hope that this place isn't dead.
