You can board Orient Express in Paris go through France, Switzerland and Austria, rest in Budapest, Hungary; then on to Romania, Bulgaria and arrive in Istanbul. You will see great places, you will taste exotic foods. If however, you can do without the hassle of travel and its hefty price tag, but do enjoy the taste of great culinary delights, (some of which probably surpass what is served aboard the famed train) come to AYSE Meze Lounge In Frederick Maryland. My friends and I have dined there many times, I have never been disappointed and I always look forward to dining there with great anticipation. The staff is delightful and like the guides who direct one aboard the famed Express, they will explain the diverse menu to you in detail. You will savor dishes with "the strange sounding names," like; Kuzu, Peynir and Tavuk (also known as the Turkish cigars), Keftedes, Pirzola, Sheesh Aradis, Sebze Kebab, Ahtapot, Xtemia, Garides, Saganaki, Midye, etc. The AYSE staff will also ask whether you want Turkish coffee; please say yes, it is the grandfather of all coffees, it will please your taste buds and its kick will make your favorite coffeehouse brew seem humdrum; and yes, there are brandies, whiskeys and wines - Angora does have a "mind and TASTE of its own." You will feel like a real Pasha, fez and all. So take a family member, perhaps a friend or that special someone, and tell them you are taking them to AYSE Meze Lounge where the Orient Express stops. Oh yes, you may not see Basil Rathbone, Peter Lorre or Sidney Greenstreet there, but you will see some very elegant, friendly and intriguing people.
