Day 284 – Bosphorous Turkish Restaurant Winter Park

Bosphorous is a phenomenal Turkish restaurant on Winter Park’s Par Avenue. In fact, Bosphorous is currently the only Turkish restaurant in Orlando. Since Germany has lots of Turkish restaurants and eateries, I have always been exposed to Turkish food – and enjoyed it very much. I have also traveled to Turkey and have since been impressed with their outstanding cuisine. So it is not unusual for me to crave Döner kebab and similar dishes once in a while, and every time I go back to Germany, one of my first visits leads me to the famous “Döner Bude” (to be found at many corners in any German city). I am happy Orlando has Bosphorous because I can confirm: their Döner kebab is delicious! I have been to this great Turkish restaurant several times now and have never been disappointed. Their food is fresh and the serving size very generous. Turkish food consists of a lot of fresh vegetables which makes it a healthy meal. Of course, the cuisine also incorporates lots of meat – however I never feel overwhelmed by it.

During this visit I tried Bosphorous Vegetable Guvec (Casserole) with Chicken. The meal is a mix of fresh green beans, eggplant, zucchini, potatoes, carrots, bell peppers and tomatoes served with white rice. I can highly recommend this entree! Luckily I still had some room for dessert after the meal so we ordered 3 different desserts (for the 4 of us) and split in order to be able to try a bit of each. We had the Kazandibi (baked and caramelized light milk pudding), Sutlac (Oven baked rice pudding) and Creme Caramel – all of them absolutely delicious! So if you are looking for a new dinner experience for a change give this Turkish restaurant a try, I am pretty sure you won’t regret it and as usual, the atmosphere on Park Avenue in Winter Park is wonderful 😉

    Stumbled across this one. Ich mag auch Döner Kebap…Bin Deutscher, der seit mehr als 30 Jahren in den US (New Jersey und – seit kurzem – Florida (Winter park) lebt. Kenne mich in der “deutschen” community noch nicht so gut aus. Habe eine Frage/Bitte: Ich wuerde gerne eine Skatrunde zusammen stellen, die sich 1-2 mal im Monat in Winter Park oder Umgebung trifft. Dazu benoetige ich noch mindestens einen weiteren Deutschen (Gleichgesinnten). How to go about finding one in the area?

    have a great weekend!

      Hallo Dietmar! Sounds like a great idea! I will email you directly to put you in contact with other Germans in the area. I am sure we can find someone who would love to play Skat with you 🙂
