After a couple of days in Istanbul, where we didn't find anything that particularly impressed us food-wise, we were pleasanty surprised by the meal we enjoyed at A'laturca in Goreme. The service was great, very friendly, and they were happy to explain the dishes to us. The set menu looked delicious, but a bit too much for what we wanted, so ordered a la carte, and weren't disappointed. We started with a simple selection of bread with olive oil, za'tar and tomato spread, all very fresh and tasty. We then had the chicken with almond cream sauce (came with rice, fried potato (nice and crunchy, not soggy!), and julienned mixed veggies; a dish we can't recall the name of, but was grilled strips of veal on a bed of fried julienne potato with a yoghurt sauce (a local speciality); desserts consisted of the "chicken breast pudding" and a sweet pumpkin in syrup dish - everything was delicious! We also enjoyed our glasses of wine - these were decidely better than we'd had elsewhere locally (and they don't skimp on glass size!). Overall, the prices can look expensive initially compared to other local restaurants, but the quality and quantity of food and drink actually make this a good value option for those looking or something more than just a local cafe.
