When a coworker told me about the amazing Halal Snack Pack she had at a Turkish restaurant that she had tried for the first time the previous evening, her excitement over both the dish and the atmosphere there made me want to try both for the first time myself. I normally don’t eat out much because my husband and I both love to cook, but neither of us had ever tried making any Turkish dishes. Rather than try this on our own the first time, we decided to go to the restaurant and enjoy our first Turkish meal.
What we both thought was going to happen was that we would go there, enjoy a nice meal, then mimic what we had eaten there at home, if we even enjoyed it. Nothing worked out quite that way though. When we first stepped into the New Star Kebab family restaurant, the scents were amazing. It was a very homey atmosphere, and we were seated immediately. When we looked at the menu, we were surprised to see so many different dishes, and we had quite the dilemma because we had no idea which one to choose, they all looked that good!
Remembering what my coworker had said about the Halal Snack Pack, I decided to get more information on it. It is lamb, beef and chicken, and it is served with chips and a variety of sauces. I wanted the chili sauce because I love a hot and spicy dish, which is why I also ordered jalapenos with it. To say that it was the best meal I have had in a restaurant would be an understatement. It was so good that we knew we were not going to try and duplicate it at home. For this meal, it is one that we definitely go to the restaurant to enjoy!
