Miss. Delicious #77 : Seraser in the Old Town of Kaleici (Antalya)

in food •  2 years ago

Dear Steemit friends :

Every now and then, I like to go somewhere against the grain of popular opinion. Somewhere that people have told me isn't worth going to, or somewhere that is too touristy, full of people, uncultured, ugly.. the reasons go on. For my time in Turkey, one such place was Antalya.

Having experienced and seen the beauty and depth of Turkey first hand, I became curious as to why Antalya was singled out as being a notorious tourist spot with no real history and culture to experience, surely all the millions of people who visit there each year have experiences worth taking home with them?

In this edition of Miss. Delicious, we'll be venturing into the heart of the Antalya, deep in the old town district known as Kaleici. Aside from the gorgeous food that is to follow, take your time in admiring some of the surpsingly intact ancient buildings that remain in this little town.

Though evident in age, the Hadrian Gate, is a beautifully intact rustic building that oozes Roman style architecture, reminding us of the rich heritage this, and many other places in Turkey hold.

Legend says that the Queen of Sheba passed through an earlier iteration of these gates. For us, passing through this gate with four pylons and triple arches, grants us passage to the old town of Kaleici and a visit to our restaurant of choice.

Located just a few gentle minutes inside the old city, we arrive at Seraser fine dining restaurant.
It's not a grand entrance, comparable to the likes of say, The Dorchester or The Ritz, but then, Seraser isn't trying to give that kind of fine dining impression, instead, it fits in effortlessly with the local old town motifs and welcomes it's guests through a small side entrance, labelled with only a small plaque and minimalist hanging banner.

You probably wouldn't think of entering this place unless it was your intention all along, and in that vain, I really appreciate it's low profile approach. You will find that the exclusivity comes without the garish illusion of grand luxury fine dining, and surprisingly, a price tag to scorn at.

What you might not notice or even know, is that Seraser is a member of Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs.

What exactly is that you might ask?

Here is the description from Wikipedia.

Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is an international gastronomic society founded in Paris in 1950. The Chaîne is based on the traditions and practices of the old French royal guild of goose roasters, whose authority gradually expanded to the roasting of all poultry, meat and game. It is dedicated to fine cuisine and promoting and developing the gastronomic values while at the same time widening its focus to table art.

Entering the restaurant, you suddenly feel like you've entered the garden of someone very important. As if you are the guest of a Royal. Indeed, the mansion house used to belong to a Royal some 300 years ago!



Being a member of a long time secret society of the gastronomic arts, Seraser has done exceptionally well in creating an environment that not only titillates the eyes, but also arouses the stomach.

Before sitting down, I recommend you take a walk around the courtyard, frame your mind and senses for the occassion. It isn't just about the food at Seraser, it's about the people, the place and the experience.

Ambient lighting with various kinds of lanterns, and lamps help with calming down and engaging relaxation mode. You will find quite a few places other than the dining tables to sit down and relax with a drink. After-all, gastronomy is as much about the food, as it is the infusion of art, culture of food through service.

It also helps that the restaurant is enriched with so much vegetation. There are plants, trees and vines absolutely everywhere.
Parts of the dining area are almost covered in lush green trees, shading the guests from the sun whilst the dim lamps create an ever so romantic atmosphere.

Further down the courtyard, you'll also find an interesting area devoid of tables and chairs. This place is decorated with some pottery, vases, and even a mini fountain. A wonderful area to waltz to when you feel a sense of claustrophobia.

Before sitting down, I was pleasantly greeted by a family of cats who seem to have made this restaurant their forever home. Unlike other ferral cats I have come cross, these are very friendly and constantly brushed themselves against my feet and legs as I walked around, and even when I sat down at my table.

The Menu

Cocktails

The first order of the day, and a perfect way to cool down from the heat and to prepare for the food to come.

On the left, my all time favourite drink (if you ever want to buy me a drink then this is the one to get!) Pina Colada. And on the right, we have the in-house Paradise Cocktail which consists of grenadine, coconut rum, pineapple juice, and Blue Curaçao. I had a sip of this one but Tania is no doubt a better drinker than I, because I felt a rush of dizziness almost immediately after a sip!

Starters

First up, we have the Moules Mariniere. These are Steamed French Provance style mussels in fruity Sauvignon Blanc. I personally really like anything of the seafood variety, and was most impressed with the slight alcoholic tinge combined with fresh-off-the-sea rawness.

These sesame seed doughballs are complimentary and served as a perfect activator for the appetite. I actually asked for a second serving of these, because they tasted so good with the Mussels.

Grilled Jumbo Shrimps & Aegen Herbs Cream - Grilled Jumbo shrimps; Aegen herbs cream and artichoke in olive oil.

The prawns are delectable, if only a bit small in serving size. In China, we eat prawns by the kilogram, so two jumbo shrimps really felt like nothing at all - I guess it served it's purpose as an appetizer though.

Cuttlefish Alla Sicula. Opting for more variety over sheer quantity, this was the third starter we opted for. Luckily, the serving sizes are quite small so the diversity is actually very welcomed. This particular dish consists of Sauteed cuttlefish with aged sweet passito; sun dried tomato, parisienne vegetables, capers, fried soya and vegetable ravioli.

It's almost hard to believe that all of that can be summed up into such a small cup size dish.

Sea Bass Wrapped in Wine Leaves

Sticking to the nominal serving sizes of the starters, this dish which consists of Sea bass wrapped in vine leaves; pepper salad and lemon & butter sauce is actually a main course.

I've never eaten wine leaves before, let alone wrapped around Sea Bass, it kind of tastes like a mediterranean version of sushi, except replace seaweed with wine leaves, and cooked seabass with raw fish. Definitely an fusion of tastes which require every bit of the platter to make it taste whole.

Octopus with Santorini Style

Grilled octopus; fried zucchini, potato and vanilla cream sauce, this dish brings back fond memories of my visit to Santorini last year. Although my recollection of the foods I tasted there are a distant memory, I remember how fresh the seafood was, as if I was tasting the sea.

Here, I'm sure the Octopus was alive just moments before it ended up on my plate. The tough chewy texture of the meat unleashed a hint of sea every bite you take but it's grilled preparation allows you to enjoy it like you would at a nightmarket on a skewer. A perfect blend of fine preparation and analogy of local folk style food.

I highly recommend the fried zucchini. Usually it can taste a bit bland because of it's large size, but here it is strips that have so much more surface area to absorb the cream and sea like taste of octopus. It's also a completely different texture to the octopus - a crunchy fried chip like taste, except much more delicate.

And that wraps up our visit to the secret Gastronomic restaurant that is Seraser, hidden in the heart of Kaleici, the old town within Turkey's Antalya. Who said there was nothing worth visiting in Antalya? You just have to go exploring a bit more, and be willing to walk in places through the side door sometimes..

As always, if you liked my post, give it an upvote, do follow me to stay up to date with my adventures, and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

P.S. I'm currently travelling in a new location which I will reveal in the next post. With so much of Turkey left to blog about, expect to find a mixture of posts about different places for the next few!


在土耳其,有一个地方,那里有鸟语花香,有曲曲弯弯的老街,你可以倚着城墙倾听古老的传说,也可以寻找一个美丽而有情调的空间,去与历史对话,与时空对话。这里就是安塔利亚的老城区,安塔利亚是我这次在土耳其旅行中最爱的城市之一,它位于土耳其西南部的地中海沿岸,自然和人文景观都让人为此陶醉的没话说。就连把土耳其行程安排满满的我,都任性的一连去了老城好多次。一直渴望在老城区享受一顿晚餐,在执着跑去的第二次,终于实现了自己的愿望。

你们可能听到我的描述,是不是已经满心欢喜,迫不及待想去看看了,现在就请和我一起走进老城区,探索一下这家据说是老城区最好吃的餐厅吧。眼前这个钟塔是老城区最显著的地标了,从远方都可以把它看得清楚,黄昏的时候,塔尖发出了紫色的光束,在古老朴素的老房子中显得神秘而耀眼。迈进Seraser餐厅的第一步,我就被眼前这静谧温馨的小院子打动了心,如果不去了解它背后的故事,你就不会知道,这家餐厅的主楼建筑和石头大院已经有300多年的历史了。这家餐厅的魅力不仅于此,它根据人类的感官器官眼睛,鼻子和耳朵,全方位的把你带入它自己的故事里,除了眼睛所看到的伊甸园美景,鼻子所闻见海岛花儿的清香,就连听觉上,餐厅也请了地道的乐队现场演奏土耳其音乐,给你更加立体的餐厅第一印象。

还有呢,那错落有致的盆景,绿荫下乘凉的小猫咪一家,好似藏在山洞里精致的酒吧吧台,都给了我从未有过的浪漫体验。我忍不住和这些可爱精致的小景观合影好多张。这家餐厅的用餐区还细致的装修成了不同风格,主楼里是略微古典的欧式桌椅,装潢的像座城堡一样;几棵苍天大树倚着的洞穴里,是较为简约风格的布置;还有美丽花园里独具民俗风格的竹椅。这家餐厅平日里都非常火爆,附近酒店的住客都会坐着车为它而来,大部分人喜欢选择坐在洞穴餐区,而我则别出心裁选择了花园用餐区。看了菜单,你会发现,这家餐厅主要提供的是传统的地中海系菜肴,绝对是我期待已久的口味。

首先上桌的是酒吧先生为我特意调制的鸡尾酒,习惯上竟然还印着酒的名字。味道好喝到真的不法用言语形容。接下来上来开胃小菜,搭配面包的海鲜酱,和意大利盛产的油醋汁,搭配了橄榄油和黑醋。接着服务生捧着一篮子可爱的小面包出现在我面前,让我自由选择喜欢的面包。前菜是非常有独创精神的烤大虾和鱿鱼,搭配了土豆,菠菜酱,和地中海一系列的调味小蔬菜水果,不得不说,这样的配菜我是第一次见。主菜是用紫菜包住的新鲜鱼肉和做成蛋挞状的八爪鱼,这盘鱼肉被紫菜包裹着,还真是别具一格,我在猜想,厨师会不会是受到日本寿司的启发。而八爪鱼是做成了希腊圣托里尼的风格,味道鲜美,原汁原味。坐在这仿佛是宫廷版的小院子里,从黄昏到深夜,亮起灯火的院子更显迷人,而我欣赏着美景,久久不愿离开。今天的对于老城最典雅的餐厅的探索就到这里啦,之后还有更多有趣的旅行中美食要分享给大家,大家敬请期待吧。

That is the reason why I made this for her !!

·

Thank you kekhrie, it's wonderful to have such a dedicated follower as yourself. I do put a lot of effort into my writing, so i'm happy you take the time to read through it :)

·

Same here. I'm loving her post and obvoiusly she's beautiful

·

really it is amazing, I like your comment, it is wonderful, I can not believe it.

Will stop by Sereser when i'm in town..

there is something romantic about courtyard restaurants.

I remember one in particular from my university days and nothing can match the intimacy and romance of being safely walled within your own private garden that's open to the sky.

Of course the plants contribute to the ambiance as does the subdued lighting that conjures the atmosphere of candlelight.

Great restaurants always merge with and complement their surroundings and Seraser does that.

Nestled in the midst of ancient buildings its quiet and unobtrusive presence bespeaks style, grace and tradition.

The seafood entries were visually appealing as well as the colourful drinks.

As you so aptly put in in your review, 'gastronomy is as much about the food, as it is the infusion of art, culture of food through service.' Exactly.

The goal of a restaurant who's intention is to provide fine dining and an excellent cuisine is to relax you-not impress you, and Seraser does that.

I found it charming that several cats have 'adopted' the restaurant and made it their home. Nothing is more cozy and relaxing that a purring cat!

A beautiful dining experience, @sweetsssj, with gorgeous photos and an articulate review. You left the reader intrigued by the magic of fine dining in a historic setting.

Beautiful.

·

@fede1944 I believe tha nature only nature let us something like that.

Great to see @sweetsssj at Antalya, for you, we able to learn about these beautiful historical places and off course, these delicious foods.

Every moment u had capture it,make this post very enjoy to read. This also give me some inspiration to get my next destination.

Simply amazing. Antalya is beautiful and we virtually visited this city while doing homework for our vacation last year.

Also would love to mention how each post from you is an extension of previous one and are effortlessly fine from the previous one. Keep it up

You do great posts. I like coming yoir way. Pls do me a visit.

Having experienced and seen the beauty and depth of Turkey first hand, I became curious as to why Antalya was singled out as being a notorious tourist spot with no real history and culture to experience, surely all the millions of people who visit there each year have experiences worth taking home with them?

In this edition of Miss. Delicious, we'll be venturing into the heart of the Antalya, deep in the old town district known as Kaleici. Aside from the gorgeous food that is to follow, take your time in admiring some of the surpsingly intact ancient buildings that remain in this little town.

·

Ancient buildings sounds cool... what kind?

This comment is the last comment from your last post

I get a lot of good feed back from you.

You have to know that, In indonesia especially in Aceh , you are so popular. Many steemit user here always talk about you. They said "she is beautiful, she is from China, how can she earn a lot of dollars, I like her post so much, I love her because she always post about travel and food, she is awesome" and so on .

I am sure that you know "Aceh" , Aceh is one of popular tag in steemit. I always reccomend your blog for the newbie here.

I said " you have to follow her, she is great "

I hope you consider to visit Indonesia , And I am very honoured If the sweetest girl in steemit visit my country.

I hope you want follow me ms. @sweetsssj

Enjoy your next trip without problem 😊

·

zulfikarkamui, thank you for your lovely comment, I actually didn't know that people talk about me in Aceh, but i'm so humbled by the wonderful things you have to say.. it's not always positive chatter that reaches far and wide after all.. Of course, I will be visiting Indonesia in the coming year, and I hope we can have a meetup so I can meet as many of he Indonesian community as possible!

·
·

My pleasure 😉
Indonesia is always open for you, sweet 😉

If you want to go here, just contact me :)

wau .. all your photos are very good,
Have you ever been to Bali ??
see my post about some tourist attractions in bali !!

·

I have heard wonderful things about Bali, but sadly not had the opportunity to visit yet, but let's hope I get to visit soon!

Stepped by to show some love. Pictures this time around are absolutely beautiful. I've has mussels before and didnt like them. The shrimp looks pretty friggin good though.The Queen of Sheba, raised my antennas. People often forget the relative close proximity from Turkey to Africa.

·

hi geechidan! thanks for the love :)
Mussels can taste quite strange.. they're a bit tougher than oysters, but tend to retain a lot more of the taste of whatever waters they were scooped out from. It's quite amazing the amount of historical significance Turkey has.. did you know, it has more ancient Roman cities than Italy?

·
·

Very interesting. So that means that Rome was well versed with Africa.

nice photos~~~

This is awesome travel with you and enjoy the places @sweetsssj. The inside and out view of the restaurant is stunning and reminds me home like calm and relaxing and refreshing environment. Again thanks for sharing your experience with us.

You take perfect photos, can i ask you what camera do you usually use?

·

thanks my dear, I usually use a Sony A9, the pictures here I used my Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens with a metabones converter

·
·

Thank you very much :)

@sweetsssj : this post is much different from some of your posts ago.
I can judge you in how to dress.
in my opinion, the possibility of a place that supports you in wearing clothing
and here you appreciate the place or area.
thank you interesting post and I will wait for your next post.

·

Interesting observation! 😃 😄 I hope you have a wonderful day!

stunning pictures! food can be categorized as foodporn! that is a good thing

H hey it's been a while but another great article / blog! If you have time https://steemit.com/family/@ryan313/a-real-meaningful-job-that-i-m-trying-to-do-well

thx for sharing

Wow what a fantastic post! You made a beautiful destination out of nothing, as you indicated you have to really dig for gold when it comes to less known places of attraction.

But once I read the post, now it seems straight out of a fairy tale!

The food that you laid out in the post made me drool, and the fried zuccini is my favorite now - although it was difficult to choose out of all the gastronomical delights that you have highlighted. The images make it so real - I felt like I was at the table in person.

What do you use for food photography - DSLR with a lens or just a good smartphone? Just curious - excellent photography throughout by the way.

Can't wait for you to reveal your next destination!

·

thank you maxabit, to answer your question about photography, I usually use a 50mm f/1.4 prime lens with a Canon 5D MKii or with a metabones adaptor on a Sony A9. It's not always convenient to have a large DSLR with me though, so when it's less convenient, I just use my iPhone!

Welcome back sweetsssj! :)
It's been like, a more than a week since your last post. Been busy enjoying your travels and wonderful adventures, we missed you a lot!

All can i say is WOW, what a wonderful town, it's roman architecture really stands out. The earthy bricks is a great foundation and takes you back in time. Bringing in lush vegetationsets a serene atmosphere and just makes you to just relax, order some savory food and take a sip of your favorite Pina Colada. And as always, lovely colorful dress! Looking gorgeous & vibrant, so very you. <3

BTW: Just a week ago, i came back from vacation in our province named Aklan, the home of the famous island Boracay (if you ever have heard about it. :D) and i'm currently starting to blog my trip. If you ever have the time, do check out the first post in my series:

You are always so Beautiful and willing to share the World with everyone on Steemit. We have one thing in common we joined Steemit in August of 2016. The Restaurant looked like it was very nice. Your Pictures are always so Vivid and Stunning in your postings. Thank you for sharing this with us @sweetsssj. Cheers

I am going to stick around because I Love the Kindness of people such as yourself. Steemit is the place to be............

Finally back After 11 days , missing you so much . Where were you ? This is very cool place and you look too lovely in this outfit , amazing color combination. You surprise me every time with your unique looks , very pretty . I love the way you explained so many things very easily and giving the readers feel as if they are actually travelling and experience the same as you. It happens with me at least , great variety of food even don't know how it tastes but looks nice. I don't know what is special about this post , something different , a different style and looks like new edition of Miss Delicious . Amazing work , well I am out of words . Missed you , your beautiful smile. Keep smiling and have fun. 😊

·

vikbuddy! I missed you too.. I did have time to come by your blog and vote on one or two though. I've been travelling to a completely different part of the world so just got caught up with that. Fear not though, all of my adventures will be blogged about eventually haha, hopefully not too infrequently as well. Anyway, I won't make you wait 11 days again, promise!

Very cool! You are absolutely right that sometimes you have to disregard what you hear and just see and experience a place for yourself. You never know what you might find! Looks like it paid of at least with a delicious meal here :)

·

Absolutely agree! It's actually amazing to walk into this old town, the restaurant was just one little gem in the backdrop of many. Hopefully I can show everyone what this town is like a bit more as well.

·
·

Please do! You really do a nice job making us feel like we are there with you, so we look forward to more :)

You can check my tutorial on how to choose best travel cameras https://steemit.com/travel/@travelguide/best-point-and-shoot-cameras-for-travelers

·

thank you travelguide, you have some great camera's in there. I'm actually quite familiar with the Panasonic Tz range, and of course the Sony Alpha, given that I own a Sony A9 and various Tz shooters. I would also point out that the Canon G7X series are also superb cameras that I would recommend if the DSLR's or Sony Alphas are out of the budge range!

·
·

Hey @sweetsssj, great post as always, love the pictures! I understand that next to making good content you also care a lot about Curation. Perhaps you would be interested in The Curation Gem, its a project designed to give a boost in rewards to human Curators.
Hope to see you in the thread, Steem on!

·

I'm so happy to hear that! Turkey definitely deserves more attention, it's historical significance is often under appreciated!

a very beautiful place, I also want to go around the world and free like @sweetsssj, I am very impressed with you, you are my motivation to keep working on steemit

The sea Bass Wrapped in Wine Leaves looks really interesting love you pictures as usual. True what you said about that prawns that looks like one piece.

p.s.:iy you would like to ask about Turkey here I am .

Sweetss, have you stopped by the #rapchallenge. I've been kicking butt and taking names. Would love to see you slide through. Competition and submission is the end of this week.

Wow Antalya is a wonderful and eye catching place to go. It's upon my wishlist . And the way you described it is wonder. Lovely!!

·

this is just the old part of Antalya, called Kaleici.

Good read.. thank you for sharing this with us.

And if you really like good food and history, both in the same city at the same time, then Lahore (Pakistan) should be your next destination :) I am sure you will fall in love with this place the moment you enter here.

·

Thank you my friend, I will keep that in mind for my next few visits! :)

·
·

That'll be great! :)

i know the restaurant i stayed nearby in a youth hostel , it a beautiful part of the city , i would love to eat there next time i visit as last time i was there i sort of lived on corn on the cob from the street sellers , which were really good and the biggest corn on the cobs i have ever seen , ;-) try one they are nice

I envy you so much.It's a great tourist.

i do not know if antalya is a very beautiful city in turki, i hana know the city of istanbul in turki, you are very great in juggling the usual place become extraordinary and you also very clever in stringing words
it's a very nice trip, and it's a very good meal

I really like you and you are very sweet and you are very sweet and you are too sweet in making posts can you help sweeten my post a little with your sugar
Thanks for sharing sweetie @sweetsssj :)

·

aww thank you zikra, infact most places have something special, you just have to try and see it through a different lens and spend some time on appreciating the place for what it is!

·
·

It is true sweetie :)
you are very good at stringing good words, you are my role model in writing a good post
means you are not wrong to try travel to Indonesia, because here also have many places that are simple but a lot of store history, maybe you can make the place look better with your arrival here

·

It's so really really wonderful...

终于盼来了新的文章

·

哈哈,谢谢你,有你们期待,我就有写作的动力啦^^

@sweetsssj - Oh my - I have missed your blogs for last 10 days. No wonder - you are traveling to a new secret location ! LOL

You were right to go against public opinion and visit Antalaya. Many times, places are a bit notorious due to throngs of tourists but that does not mean there is nothing worth seeing or experiencing

I loved the old Hardrian gate. Your passing through, wearing your blue and pink long dress - you must have looked as grand as Queen of Sheeba.

It is amazing that the Seraser is a member of international gastronomic society which is 300 years old! WOW!!

The nice outdoor dining area looks really enticing. I loved your photo with the earthen pots and with cranes sculpture in the background. That is a great sculpture.

I will definitely buy you a Pina colada if we ever meet. For myself, in that restaurant, I will only order Pina colada and the steamed mussels. I would feel very happy with that meal!

Thanks for sharing this wonderful blog. Fully upvoted.

Good to see you back. I hope you find some time to visit my blogs. Have been missing your comments. If you honor my latest blogs with a visit, it will enrich my Steemit experience. Thanks

Regards,
vm2904

vm2904, so lovely to see you here active and well. I'm always so flattered by your comments that I don't know how to respond! So... I guess I'll say thank you very much, I always appreciate it, and I'll always have time to drop by your blog. I look forward to that Pina Colada! :)

You dont have to thank me. Just keep posting your lovely blogs friend. Looking forward to your visits often to my blogs too. You are an experience blogger and Senior Steemian - I always appreciate your support and guidance. Thanks

@sweetsssj You are so beautiful and so are your blogs. I do travelogs too because I love writing about my travels and the places I've been too. You might want to check some. 😊 Turkey's Antalya doesnt look bad at all. It's like a hidden paradise. ❤

Excellent post i would like you visit once a waterfall Angel in venezuela.

I'm seriously happy to see the old building intact, I mean, people don't understand the beauty of old and ancient architecture and go to destroy them. I'm not into this kinda food but will surely go someday there and try cocktails, they look yumm!

This post was very informative thank you for sharing
you have my upvote
Keep smiling, reading, writing and voting!!!

I really like your post. Super interesting. Great!!!

These look really delicious!These are some incredible pictures! I loved your work!

Loving the places you visited and the food was great.

Seraser looks like a fantastic restaurant. I don't think I would be able to find it there unless I knew about it before hand.

I am interested about trying wine leaves now. I haven't heard of it being used in cuisine before.

·

Yes! It's actually a bit of a gem, i'm surprised they don't make more effort to advertise themselves.. but then again, they're a part of some exclusive secret society of gastronomers.. maybe that's why! :)

yeah makes sense!
