Tonight, we went to Pasha Mezza, a Turkish restaurant in Norfolk, VA on 22nd street.
Nick: The food was delicious. I ordered the Lamb Chunks on Jasmine rice with vegetables. Every thing was delicious and had a very unique flavor, which I was unable to define. It was difficult to pick out distinct flavors.
Revonna tried the chicken spinach, and it would have been a good choice as well. Sarah got a lental stew entree and it would have also been a good decision as well.
We got baklava for dessert and it was delicious. It was light with a sweet little punch.
The girls got some Turkish coffee, but they didn’t seem to really enjoy it. They said it was bitter. I think it’s probably an aquired taste.
I really loved the ambiance, decor, and relaxation factor at Pasha Mezza.
The appetizer platter was flavorful, though all the dishes seemed to taste similarly and the spices were difficult to distinguish. I found the wine selection to be more than satisfactory with many choices. The beer selection was adequate and allowed for someone to order more than just a Bud Light. The main entree I had was chicken and spinach served with jasmine rice. It was very tasty and I would eat that dish anytime, I think butter was involved and that is always yummy.
The turkish coffee very well may be an acquired taste and Sarah and I agreed that it may could have been mistaken for turkish mud rather than coffee. Ugh.
My overall experience was satisfactory, however the food did not leave a distinct impression upon me and it wouldn’t be a place that I would seek out per se.
