Miss. Delicious #79 : Pamukkale Village's Venus Suite-Hotel Restaurant!

in food •  2 months ago

Dear Steemit friends :

U5duLebZPAfcsxPsr2xVFKXaQEVt5JN_1680x8400.jpg

In this edition of Miss. Delicious, we'll be visiting one of the most well received hotels in the Denizli Province, located in a town known for it's Cotton Castles and a pool visited by Cleopatra herself! The town we're referring to is of course, Pamukkale, the home of the white travertine terraces and the ancient town of Hierapolis.

The white travertine terraces are nicknamed the "Cotton Castle" because of it's puffy white walls resembling cotton. In-fact, they are made from a carbonate material, left by the the flowing water which oozes from deep within the mountains. If you missed the post about these white travertine terraces, you can catch up with my post here


Sometimes over shadowed by the cotton castle, Pamukkale is also home to one of the largest cities from the ancient times - Hierapolis. Most of the city now lays in ruins, but a surprising portion of it remains identifiable. The large ancient city was built around the travertine terraces because they were regarded as a natural miracle of the Pergamon Kingdom.Please check my post about Hierapolis- here - if you missed it.


Last but not least, for Spa lovers, the Antique Pool where Cleopatra once bathed, now the permanent home to the ruins of a nearby temple where sacred baths can be taken in the luke warm calcium rich natural water. Please take a look at my post about that here.


With so many interesting places to visit, I recommend staying in the small village town just below the travertine terraces. Why? Because you will want to visit this place more than once, and travelling from Denizli means setting off earlier, and also leaving the site earlier too. Avoiding the crowds and midday heat means arriving at the terraces for around 8am. Much later than that and then you are battling for space and will definitely have very few opportunities to take pictures without hundreds of people in the background.

That is why, I chose to stay at the Venus Suite-Hotel. It's located right in the center of the village, and is less than 1km to the terraces. Not only this, they offer a free shuttle service every 30 minutes!

The lobby is a very clean and vegetative open space. One of the understated things I appreciate are the marble floor tiles. They keep the place cool which is something you come to underestimate time and time again. Especially when faced with the scorching temperatures of Turkey in summer.

They also have a lovely mini-pool. It's almost like a mansion house with a private pool. Very homely feeling and feels very private.

I quickly realised whilst I was in Turkey that I really need to book hotels with swimming pools during summer visits. There is simply no other way to cool down from the blistering heat bar taking a cold shower.

Here is the view of the main building together with the pool.

Next to the pool and garden, there is a pavilion which is full of splendid Turkish folk pattern pillows, cushions and carpets. The walls are also decorated with very detailed Turkish style tiles, highlighting the distinctive personality of the local interiors.

The rooms of the hotel are designed and decorated in a modern yet romantic style. Turkish folk elements are littered throughout, for instance the wooden balconies, the Turkish ceramic tiles etc. I was very lucky to have had my room upgraded to a suite because of the availability. That means a bigger room as well as a balcony.

As you can see, the suites are fairly large in size and have lovely natural lighting. The floors are marble, and are very clean. Just above the desk, you will find a TV, and a much needed air conditioner.

This is the bathroom which sadly doesn't have a bath tub. Never the less, i'm not much of a bath kind of person and the shower works very well. One thing I should stress is that the whole place is spotless. One of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed in!

This is the wooden balcony which overlooks the panoramic view of the plains at the front of the hotel. I really enjoyed sitting out here, feeling the fresh holiday winds, seeing the mountains in the distance, shaded from the stifling sun, and enjoying the Turkish countryside feel. Little did I know that the view of the town and the hotel would be even more beautiful from the terraces above.

This is the view of the garden and the pool from the corridor.

If you look closer, you can see the white travertine terraces in the distance!

This is another pavilion. A seating area for people waiting to dine. This room was characterised by the gorgeous velvet sofas, beautiful hanging lamps, intricately decorated ceramic plates and tiles on the walls.

There was even a fine example of a Turkish rug hanging on one of the walls. I loved the atmosphere of this room, even more so because it was empty and I could enjoy it with just me and Tania!

Food from Venus

Owing to the small size of the Pamukkale village, there are very few alternatives for food and even lodging. Because of that, our main meals of the day will be be at the hotel's restaurant. As you can see, the dining area a wooden lodge, with colourful tapestry, Turkish chandeliers, and wall paintings made from ceramics.

In the corner, there is even a bed which I assume is just a traditional resting area.

The Menu

Despite having little to no alternatives in the area, meaning little competition, Venus has prided itself as a high quality family run hotel serving authentic delicious home cooked Turkish cuisine. Most of the time, when my family cooks me dinner, it's usually very delicious because they want the best for you, and that is why places pride themselves on home-cooked recipes, you get the same kind of attention to detail, as well as surprise secret family recipes.

What also surprised me about the menu was that the dishes were translated to Chinese! This is the first and only time I have come across a menu in Turkey that has Chinese translations.

First up, we have the Chicken Salad. May I say, this is the most meaty Chicken salad I have ever tasted in my life and I actually really like it prepared this way! Succulent strips of grilled chicken caught my sense of smell immediately, and almost simultaneously, my stomach started yearning to be fed.

Chicken Ottoman Kebab. Arriving with a sizzle, this dish pervades the entire restaurant with it's rich sauce and pepper garnishing, it was a juicy and yet well tempered dish that was perfectly supplemented by the rice. Often a quality we look for in China when tasting food, is their ability to be consumed alongside rice. In-fact, we like to literally say "rice downing" for a dish that goes well with rice. This dish is one such example.

Beef Steak, a hearty meaty dish with so much inherent flavour in the meat. Steaks are often cooked very rare in the west, and this can lead to quite a chewy yet bloodied texture. My preference is for a tougher texture, teetering on burnt, but ever so not. The verge of being overcooked is a fine line, and the beef in this dish did not cross it. Like a spoiled 00's girl (i'm a 90's kid), I never turn down french fries in a meal!

These are oven roasted mushrooms with Cheese. Apparently these mushrooms are handpicked from their garden. I wondered why they tasted extra "natural". Still, the aroma of the mushrooms refuses to leave my memory, it was so strong that the savoury cheese became a necessity to balance the taste.


Brief Interlude after mains

Yogurt with Honey. The yogurt was very viscous, it almost tasted like a kind of jelly. As for the actual taste, the honey served almost as a cover up for the very neutral tasting flavourless yogurt. I would have preferred this dessert without the abundance of honey.

Finally, we have the Rice Pudding. A warm version of an original muller rice pudding, except with natural clotted creme on top!

Check out my short video of the Hotel!

And that wraps up today's edition of Miss. Delicious! Going to Pamukkale will no doubt on the top of the list if you decide to visit Turkey, and thus, I hope this review of the hotel as well as it's food will give you an immediate answer when looking for lodging for your stay. One thing that stands out at Venus Suite-Hotel is the warm homely feeling the owners give you. They will offer you a whatsapp contact as soon as you arrive for any requirements, even if it's for a lift back from the terraces.

After I checked out, I was offered a towel and shower facilities whilst I waited for my transport back to the city. It's little things like that which make a stay that much more pleasant.

刚刚过去的中秋,阖家团圆的气氛让大家脸上挂着藏不住的幸福笑容,家是一个人最好的栖息港湾,在旅行途中,一个温馨安逸的旅店,是我身体和心灵最舒心的港湾。如果说之前带大家感受的以弗所家庭旅馆是亲切浪漫的,那么今天我想带大家走进的Pamukkale村维纳斯酒店,依山傍水,好像中国的农家乐一样,透过窗口望向对面雪白的棉花堡,内心感受到了返朴归真的开怀。

旅店距离棉花堡景点区只有5分钟车程,酒店负责接送,非常方便。走进旅店,会看到的四周环绕着带游泳池的花园,花园旁边有一个涼亭,里面布置满土耳其民俗图案的枕头,坐垫和地毯,墙上挂着色彩鲜艳的丝绒地毯,凸显了土耳其房屋装饰上的鲜明个性。紧靠着凉亭,还有一个装扮着土耳其地毯和水烟,奥斯曼风格的角落区供大家喝茶乘凉,休息放松,尤其像出去玩累了棉花堡的我,下午坐在花园里打个盹,再美好不过了。我非常喜欢旅店设计了大范围的休息区,为客人着想,周到而贴心。

旅店的房间以现代或浪漫的风格装饰,同意也加进了土耳其的民俗元素,木头护栏的阳台,充满了清新的度假风,楼下清澈的游泳池,远处的树林,山峰,还有那白花花如雪,都尽收眼底,看的我神清气爽,瞬间就没了高温天气所带来的燥热。房间外的走廊,也能看到旅店管理者的专注和用心,好喜欢那些精致的装饰品,墙上挂着用玻璃框裱起来的蝉丝毯,花纹细腻的盘子,伊斯兰特色瓷砖装饰,还有灯架上各式各样的花灯。仔细一看,又觉得旅店管理者不仅很认真的装饰酒店,让旅客们有机会近距离欣赏民俗艺术,体会家一般的温暖,也很有经商头脑,因为这些惹人爱的装饰品,都可以在走廊旁的精品屋买到。做旅店的同时,又做了纪念品和古董店的生意,真是一举两得呢。

其实还不止这些,因为在Pamukkale这个比较偏远的小村里,少有餐厅,所以我们的一日三餐都会放心的交给酒店,因为这家酒店的餐厅,也大概是棉花堡附近最有特色又好吃的餐厅了。走进这间淳朴,充满生活气息的家庭式餐厅,屋顶上画满土耳其民俗花纹的水晶吊灯,砖块墙上五彩缤纷的挂毯,木质顶棚,还有极具当地特色的小床,好像被当作沙发来用,我仿佛是被邀请走入了当地居民的家里,等待他们为我端来亲切可口的土耳其家常菜。餐厅里有不少素食菜肴,也有最有名气的烤肉串,全部是家庭作坊的自制美食,纯天然的食物材料,还真是吸引人呢。

菜单上除了英文和土耳其文,竟然标上了中文,十分让我惊讶,这是唯一一家土耳其的餐厅拥有中文菜单的,可见来这里的中国游客不在少数呢。先上来的鸡肉番茄的蔬菜沙拉,在炎热的夏天吃起来,可真是酸甜可口。铁板鸡肉带着吱吱的烧烤声来到了餐桌,烤肉的香弥漫整个餐厅。烤牛肉块,带上了一整条青椒,薯条,香菜和米饭,有菜有肉的科学搭配,吃起来很健康呢。芝士蘑菇煲非常好吃,芝士的醇香和蘑菇的清香完美搭配。吃到这里,我已经非常饱了,但是对于我来说,吃甜品是第二个胃,所以我还是忍不住点了土耳其传统的特色甜品。蜂蜜酸奶,吃起来清凉酸甜,非常适合夏季解暑吃。米布丁非常特别,好像是用米饭制成,带着布丁的甜,一口接一口简直停不下来呢。今天的土耳其旅店和美食分享就要告于段落了,希望大家享受这份旅行带来的快乐,之后还有更多神秘未知的美丽风景,等着我们一起去欣赏。

I made this image compilation from your older pics, Damn Girl you be looking FLY! Youre so bae!

I just found out Taiwan is #1 in Asia in Media Freedom!
I really really like this look of yours!

You must come from a long line of Beautiful Waman!

I bet your female ancestors were Wives of Chinese Emperors! Are you Chinese Royalty??

Anyway you are always going to be the Queen of Steem. I have heard many people on Steemit.chat talking about how they will find a way to marry you hah you are wanted me many! I tried to tell them that you will only be interested in guys who at least have 100,000 Steempower hahahah Just Kidding, but we all wonder about your love life! It will be a heart breaking day to see you post pictures of a boyfriend lol we want you to be single so you can be the girlfriend of Steemit! XD :D hahaha

Anyway you are perfect and I bet you will become the first Female Steem Millionaire and perhaps the first Female crypto billionaire!

SweetSSSJ Incorporated! You will have an office building in Taiwan! You will employ thousands of people around the world! But you are becoming Famous in Asia and I bet you are already a celebrity in Taiwan!

This is your song now!

Unfortunately that is the truth 😐
Good expression "girlfriend of steemit", from the beginning. Best example of how steemit works. You are right with steempower. Here you will not read anything from any "steempower people", but look at the scale, from 0 to almost $ 3000 with extremely few votes, but now, only $ 200-300 last time with 1500-1600 votes (5 months ago only 3,000 followers, now over 16,000 ... hmmmm ....)?
(Single or not, private thing ... you can see two glasses and two sets in Istanbul at dinner...someone has to take the pictures and the videos, but private life is just their thing)
I thought so but now I'm sure (how steemit push the blogs)...

yes ,are amazing ,giving a positive feeling

Such a beautiful Edenic hotel in the midst of an exotic setting, sssj!

The marble floors throughout were appropriate considering the ancient Roman preference for marble, not to mention the cooling effect of such floors on the feet.

The Romans knew we're as hot or cold as our feet and they either heated or cooled the floors accordingly.

Hotels in warm climates can take advantage of open -air courtyard dining and your short video illustrates this.

I love hotels that exude elegance without a gaudy show of opulence- the Venus-Suite does that by paying attention to details such as the treed garden near the pool offering privacy and an oasis of shade and the home-cooked meals offering comfort away from home.

In that regard, the hotel offering you towels and a showering facility while you awaited your departure bus was a stroke of marketing genius while being thoughtful as well. I was truly impressed by that gesture.

I also like the use of Chinese in the menu offerings and can honestly say that I found all the meal and dessert offerings visually appealing and appetizing.

I would definitely stay in this hotel.

This was an especially beautiful photographic essay as well, sssj, and I liked the links to previous posts about the historical and cultural attractions which made this trip so memorable.

So many adventures, and so little time to embrace the sweet bird of youth :)

Nice work, @sweetsssj

·

thanks john, I always wondered actually, you must have visited many places in your time. Have you been to Pamukkale before?

·
·

ha ha, in my dreams. I studied classics, Latin, especially at university, and Greek and Roman History so I have a background that belies my experience. You are the adventurous one, and I the armchair scholar who delights in living vicariously through your posts :)

·
·
·

One day you will get to visit the Ruins of Greece and Rome and you will get to have so much more appreciation for the Old artifacts etc so it will mean so much more for you, and steem will help you get there

·
·
·
·

Oh yes, @ackza, Steemit has changed so many lives for the better, mine included. Thanks for your encouragement :)

·

I love the icon before the Chinese character translation, its great, kitch...

·
·

not sure if you meant this for me or sssj, but it's adorable :)

·

Incredible journeys you take. I enjoy them very much.

Hello sweetsssj you good moment today amazing you posting i like thank you ,i am @bilqis07 pease you vote and

Didn't know this hotel! And i really like the styole of the bath damn!

·

It's certainly very unique. I wouldn't expect anyone who's not visited Pamukkale to know this hotel. It's quite a little gem!

your English is so beautiful ! how did you learn it ?If you're free, I'd love to hear it.

I come back to steemit after a few days off and this post is at the top of the trending category. For a reason. These posts are fantastic. Just flat out great blogging here.

Such a cute hotel. I love the decorations

Ah Jess totally living it up! :D I like your reviews of places and the things you do, if it looks interesting it gives me of ideas of places to visit and what best to do while I am there.

P.S That bathroom totally tripped me out!

You are a great travel blogger. I just discovered you recently and you share your journey in a very simple way =)
I hope you have been to France already and specially the South of France, in Nice. Beautiful region full of history (home town)
I'm a wanderer too, currently traveling in my van around New Zealand
I will see you on the Road =)

·

I'm looking forward to visiting the south of france, i've been but not nearly enough! Hope you have a good time in New Zealand, do blog about it and share with us! :)

·
·

Thanks for your reply =)
I made a post recently about a place here in New Zealand that I love. I'm sure you will be in love with it too. The best place to meditate and relax

https://steemit.com/travel/@jlcrypto/a-great-place-to-meditate-relax-and-get-back-your-energy

·

Have you passed by Wellington already?

·
·

Yes I did I stayed 4 days over there
I'm now in Wanaka but soon I will go back on the road. And of course will pass by Wellington again. Why my friend ? =)

·

That is the beautiful thing about culture that is so deep and so old and historical and magical and that is why we stand up to protect our culture and our people and the books for our people first, for each country, each family, each community, because that is what life and love is all about. I'm from the USA and would love to visit France and Europe and I'm in Vietnam right now.

·
·

I'm sure it will be one of your next step =)
I suggest to not spend too much time in Paris but specially go all around the Mediterranean coast =)
So much beautiful thing to see

Picture is so good. I like it.

Great post with amazing pictures. We should all go and visit Pamukkale, Turkey too!! Thanks for sharing!!!

One of the best travel blogs not only in steemit and whole Cyberspace. Great to know little bit history about Cleopatra and Pamukkale. Cleopatra is one of the earliest movies, I have ever seen and since than I am fan of ancient Greeks and Romans. However, it would be great if we can have a little bit estimation of cost of tour: hotel stays, travels, foods. It will be helpful for the future tourists.

Everything looks so beautiful and delicious! I am sure you had a fabulous trip. Is always inspiring to see your post :) ...and your pictures really capture the moment.

Best wishes, - @splendorhub

You really should come to visit Berlin, Germany in the summer. It would be nice to see how you would react to a stay in the Hotel Adlon.

·

That sounds interesting, would you tell me what is the special thing about Hotel Adlon?

·
·

Shes not coming to an hotel, its not a good place... Hehehehe

Nice place. Village's Venus Suite-Hotel is amazing, keep it up in memory @sweetsssj best wishes!

This is VERY Beautiful @sweetsssj, Incredible Pictures once again and I am sure the wonderful food that is shown is just Fabulous. I really Love what this Lady does with her Blog and as anyone can see she is incredibly successful on STEEMIT.

·

thank you stokjockey, i'm glad you're a fan of the pictures, I'm a very picture oriented blogger!

·
·

Always a pleasure @sweetssj

·
·

Photos look great,

the place seems nice,

enjoy it twice! :)

I always look forward to your Posts as you feature two of the most important things I love Travel and Food Especially Food.

I just love good Food.

Looking forward to your next​ post.

Im so jelly on you're lifestyle where I am sitting! :D haha!
Nice pictures and good food, wish I could take some time of from school to do some traveling!

You're so pretty! The food looks amazing and so does the view.

I want to like you can ask you out post me

Ur post is spectacular!!! I love what I saw

·

thanks, glad you liked :)

The life right there. Thank you for sharing your experiences. I dream to travel. I've been saving enough to start small and travel around the U.S. but I hope to soon be able to travel the world.

·

that's a splendid idea actually erickpinos, travelling around more local places is a great way to properly get acquainted with your own territory, most of the time we take it for granted because we can visit anytime we want, but there actually lots of gems to be found!

·
·

Great mindset! Don't know if you've traveled to the US but if not you should add that to your list.

Or Costa Rica, that's where I'm originally from and it's still my favorite place on Earth.

@sweetsssj Great post again! Love the video of the hotel, great addition to the posts and compliments the images.

Have you ever visited any of the ice hotels in Norway?
They are really unusual as they are literally built out of ice!!!

I wrote a post about them a while ago at https://steemit.com/travel/@gringo211985/wait-until-you-see-this-amazing-hotel-made-of-ice if you're interested to have a look at them.

·

I haven't even been to norway yet, but thanks for giving me a first hand look! :)

very very beautiful place...really like it..
following you..follow me back

Lovely photos and awesome descriptions!

Turkey seems really beautiful. I was in Istanbul once, but only doing a layover to Republica Moldova. I hardly had time to see anything. It seems that I'll have to return... ;-)

Hugs from Portugal!

·

thanks mitrado ! Maybe a visit back to Turkey is due, as for me, Moldova sounds interesting!

·
·

I loved it there. Went to see a concert of Infected Rain in Chisinau, their own hometown, among their most adored fans. It was amazing.

The people are awesome and everything is ultra cheap, from accommodations to food and transport, but there aren't many landmarks to visit. Just a few scattered here and there.

On the other hand, Chisinau is the European Capital with the most green spaces. There are well maintained public parks all over town. I went to a Mindfulness Festival in the Valea Morilor Park, where people were doing everything from yoga to juggling. So sweet! :-D

The only downside, people over 40 don't usually speak English. They speak Romanian & Russian. As third language, they tend to go to German, French... and I've even found a guy who spoke Spanish... but none of them knew any English. So bizarre! Younger people usually speak English very well, but you won't find these people serving in shops and restaurants. They're usually there... as customers. :-P

Hugs! :-D

loved the pics...everything looked awesome..thanks for the post😊

·

thanks, and you're welcome :)

Im always stoping by, i hope one day you will visit my blog and show me love.

·

thanks, i've dropped by, thanks for sharing!

·
·

Keep looking sweet as usual.

Turkey has a lot of historical places to visit that are really beautiful. There are many buildings that are hundreds of years old such as Hagia Sophia, Suleymaniye Mosque etc.

·

Yes you are right, I have written about some of those, but most of them coming soon :)

Wow, sounds like real good quality service that comes from an attitude of heart. There are those hotels that wouldn`t assist you any further as soon as you checked out... did they treat other people in the same professional way...or was that special service for a young chinese cute blogging-girl only?

·

Good points bobbyboe, as far as I could tell, the people were very friendly to all guests. The hotel is not that big and so they don't have many people to look after!

·
·

Nice...very pleasant to stay with good hosts.
As many germans avoid to travel there in these days, many hotels in turkey have to struggle.

Looks amazing as always, I'm loving that Rice Pudding ! Here in my town it's called different, maybe the taste it's the same! Every Time you make a post like this makes me hungry, I'm totally your fan (and that food fan) Great photographies great view. Where are you heading next?
PS: The mushrooms with cheese don't look tasty hahaha

·

thank you! For the next few weeks, i'll be blogging about my trips to Turkey and Taiwan, after that, i'll probably be headed to another country in South East Asia, possibly Sri Lanka :)

·
·

I am looking forward to your post!

·
·

Gonna totally supporting you. I love it, and also learning so much about those post. Sri Lanka it's an awesome place, I know you gonna take good photographs there. Have fun ! :D

·
·

·

#your newest follower

·

thank you jeaniepearl! appreciated !!

Hey Sweetsssj! I have been missing for a while. Hope you visit soon. That looks like paradise! Love it. The beef steak and rice pudding, please :) Take care. Tess.

·

hey tess, where have you been lately, I wondered where you went?

The photos are breathtaking the hotel looks amazing 😉 will definitely stay there if I ever visit Turkey looks like a dream come true to stay there ❤️

·

Your assessment sounds very similar to mine! I hope you get the opportunity soon sandy!

very beautiful, I want to visit there.

·

make it happen !

beautiful destination as always. what an incredible place. i had never heard of the cotton castles, and now thanks to you, it has been added to my list! was it magical to swim in the antique pool where cleopatra once had? i can only imagine how surreal that must have been!

·

it's quite the surreal experience i must say, with the fallen ruins of the ancient temples in the water, it felt even more like a trip back in time. Lying in the water and looking up, I can imagine cleopatra doing the same with such soothing warmth from the water.

Wow, the bedroom, the bathroom, the view, the food... everything looks so beautiful and delicious! I am sure you had a great trip!!!
Love to see your travel posts and catch up what happened during the last weeks

·

thanks soldier, it's been a terrific trip and sadly i've only had time to really start getting back into writing about it till now. Still, i'm glad you liked it!

·
·

It´s okay. I am sure you try your best to update your community as soon as possible.

Another fabulous post. You are spoiling my future travel schedule! I have to pencil a few places in now. 😀 Food looks fabulous! Lovely pictures, happiness shines through all your photos!

哇,根本是天堂啊~~ 嗚嗚,好想出去玩。

·

哈哈,下次组个cn的旅行团吧^^

I will tell my wife about these dishes

Upvoted you Miss @sweetsssj
You post just lovely posts!
As always....

@hallie25

very nice nothing more than I can say good job.

As always @sweetsssj you are a fantastic story teller that transports us to another world that is truly enchanting and beautiful as reinforced by your magnificent photos that make us want to visit, if not move there, one day. The details are so amazing and fulfilling for the thirst I have in knowing more. I am so glad to know you as a friend.

awesome place and you looking very cute :)

Wow, It's amazing your trip.

·

thanks azirgraff, this part of the trip really was pretty spectacular!

·
·

Yes, thank you for sharing.

Your reviews are very accurate and I love your style and taste in food and clothing!

Good job👍

那个叫芝士蘑菇煲啊?云南也有类似的小吃,但是蘑菇上是蛋黄

·

是呀,看来云南也是美食天地呀 : )

Pamukkale is the one of the most beautiful place to visit in Turkey... I also recommend u to go Ballons or Paragliding in there... Most of people know Cappadocia in Nevşehir alsa in Turkey for Ballons but Pamukkale is also good for that. You can travel with Ballons on Hierapolis and the view is really great.

My goodness! its a amazing post, and worth it to read thanks for sharing :)

Delicious !

Fantastic, as usual. The tapestries were amazing. This was a great read!

Have you tried the kebabs there?

Recently, a couple of Polish friends came to Singapore. I took them around. They saw a kebab stand here and they were like, "Yeah no, we had kebabs in Turkey before. Nothing will beat that."

I defintely gotta try one over there one day.

Btw @sweetsssj, you've inspired me to use more photos of myself in my posts from here on out.

It's nice that the restaurant even included Chinese translation for every dishes. I assume there's a lot of visitors from China? But anyway, very well written article. I love how you incorporate video in your post to give readers a more in-depth view of your stays. By the way, I am a food and travel blogger on @explorernations and www.explorernations.com I provide reviews and recommendations to guide and help you plan your next holiday.
