My parents were visiting us last week and we had a day out in London. Covent Garden is one of my favorite spots and decided to take my parents there. While walking around Covent Garden, we spotted the wonderful Turkish restaurant, Sofra (I had been to the Sofra Restaurant in Mayfair before but not in Covent Garden). What a pleasant surprise it was and for my parents, it was like seeing an oasis; my dad’s face lit up big time with a great smile, and he dived into the restaurant, so did we! The smells and looks of his favorite and familiar Turkish food made him happy beyond words 🙂
Huseyin Ozer’s Sofra Restaurant deserves all these praise and many more; healthy, delicious Turkish food, served with genuine Turkish hospitality. Friendly staff greets with wonderful wheat pide bread (not only healthy, but this version of pide (pita) bread was so delicious, we must have had a few extra servings of them) and home made hummus with wonderful Turkish olives over it. We enjoyed a delightful Turkish breakfast with eggs of your choice, wonderful olives, white (feta) cheese, cheddar cheese, succulent slices of tomatoes, rose petal jam, honey, wonderful fresh orange juice and of course Turkish cay (tea) served at tulip shaped glasses. I had my fix of eggs with Turkish sausages (sucuk), it was wonderful. If I had closed my eyes for a moment, I would have certainly transferred myself to Istanbul by the Bosphorus, enjoying this feast. Sofra is indeed a wonderful oasis for us all who enjoy Turkish food.
