Cazbar is an authentic Turkish restaurant in the heart of Mt Vernon. It’s has a nice ambience and some window seating.
We have gone to Cazbar once before and it was delicious. We ordered the same this time around. It was called the Sultan’s platter and it was a 3 course experience — the appetizers, selection of meats + salad, and then dessert.
Wish I could tell you what all of that food was but I have no clue! It was an awesome first course served with warm bread.
Now, comes the assorted meat platter-Shrimp, salmon, meatballs, kebabs, and some other things. Served over rice and with a raw and refreshing salad to cut the flavor of all the meat.
This was my favorite part of the meal. SO many choices and it was all excellent. The salmon was my fave–super juicy and really flavorful. I think I’m also drawn to salmon since I’m from PDX.
We obviously came no where close to finishing this platter. Perfect for lunch the next day!
Onto dessert-BAKLAVA !
A great to end savory meal. Eat the grapes first–you’ll never be able to taste them if you have a bite of the baklava. Happy Baltimore Restaurant Week!
