Lambusa’s Special Mezes
This addictive restaurant is serving the most special mezes of the Mediterranean and Aegean cuisine prepared by Cem Çelikkaya, who had worked in the best restaurants of Turkey. Çelikkaya is known for creating unique flavors from familiar tastes, such as the “Girdama with olive oil” – which is made of Girdama, a popular pickled dish ingredient of Cyprus, and only available at Lambusa. The leaf mustard and cibes plant that are exclusively brought from the Aegean are among other delicacies that get a full note from the restaurant’s frequent customers. Following the cold starts, the menu offers a distinctive selection of fresh calamari, fish in milk, fish “kokoreç”, octopus grill, angler roast, shrimp casserole and fresh fried Mediterranean shrimp. Mediterranean’s pearl, the Grouper Fish, prepared by the chef’s special marinade, is presented to the guests as the main dish. In addition to these special tastes, the menu also includes salt-cured fish, fish soup and steamed depending on the guests’ request.
Bread From the Masonry Oven
The tomato bread and corn bread are also specially baked in Lambusa’s masonry oven. The olive oil obtained from the specially planted olive trees by the restaurant for its distinguished guests, is another factor that makes Lambusa exclusive and different... The efforts of the restaurant chef Kemal Colayır play an important role in the success of the restaurant – that starts with the original flavor, preparation, naturalness and continues with the immaculate care in presentation... Colayır, who makes “high quality service” his principle, and his team welcome the guests with pleasure and devotion. Combined with the restaurant’s magnificent ambience, Funda Aksoy’s singing makes this experience even more unique for the guests of Lambusa.
