Halikarnas Restaurant, Egirdir, Turkey Five Maudies – Highly Recommended First off, breakfasts in Turkey are unbelievably good. Better than American and English breakfasts and I love bacon, sausages, grits, and eggs. But, what we had in Turkey was simply devine and far more healthy. The best breakfasts we had were at the Urkmez Hotel in […]

Lynn and I recently spent a couple of weeks in Turkey. I had spent some nine months there in the late 70s-early 80s. Turkey has some of the best food in the world and there will be a number of posts about the trip. Let’s start with Turkish pides, what I call their pizzas. You […]

At Tanor Al Deera Five Maudies – highly recommended One of the traditional foods found in the Kuwait souks, in addition to the ever present schwarma, is manakish, or what I call Kuwaiti style pizza. It seems that many places in the Arab and Mediterranean world have something that resembles what Americans would call pizza. Turkey has […]

Three-Maudies – good There are four locations in Kuwait City and I didn’t go to any of them. One thing about Kuwait City is I have never seen any city where so many restaurants deliver. Delivery is huge here. I ate four or five meals from Naz, all delivered. I rated this restaurant at two-Maudies […]

Five-Maudies – Highly Recommended We have been going to Edisto Island for more years than I care to remember and never noticed this place. It is attached to a gas station convenience store, not the best place for a BBQ joint. We noticed their sign last time we drove by. It is located on the […]

Three-Maudies – good Marina Thai has a number of locations in Kuwait City. I would call it fast food. Any restaurant where you get served in plastic foam containers, get plastic “silverware,” and your drink in a paper cup is fast food to me. The locations reflect that to a certain degree, being in a […]

Five Maudies – Highly Recommended Location: Souk Al Kuwait, I wish I could be more specific, I will try and identify it on a satellite map next time I go there Short story is that I have had the best two meals in Kuwait in this tiny restaurant with only outdoor seating on the edge […]

If you have read my posts about the mess halls in Afghanistan, you will know that the food is horrible, penitentiary inmates get better food and would be suing and winning if they got the swill they serve here. Some FOBs (Forward Operating Bases) actually have restaurants. On FOB Ghazni, we have the Oasis Restaurant, […]

4-Maudies – Recommended This restaurant is in a small strip mall with two other outstanding restaurants, Bombay Central and Sakura (see my review of Sakura). Some of the best German food I’ve had outside of Germany. This is a small place and also a bakery. The bakery had a relatively small selection of items, but […]

5-Maudies – Highly Recommended Another great local find in Fayetteville. I am pretty new to Korean food, but what I’ve had I have loved. I went with a colleague who is married to a Korean and has lived there, so I had a good guide for this experience. The staff and owners are very friendly […]
