Tas, Farringdon: Good pitstop while ring shopping

Emma and I were looking at wedding rings in Hatton Garden when our tummies started growling. There were many eating places in the area but they were all closed on Saturday. Fortunately, we had spotted Tas when walking up from Farringdon Tube station.

Tas is part of a small chain of serving authentic Anatolian Turkish cuisine. The menu certainly reflects the Mediterranean style of food reminiscent of the countries in that region but it also has a few intriguing specials.

A nice bowl of complimentary warm bread, spiced olive oil dip and olives turned up to whet the appetite. It’s so nice when the bread is served warm in restaurants.

We had a couple of starters. Mucver were patties of grated courgette mixed with goat’s cheese, onion, carrot, dill and parsley and then deep fried and served with a garlic sauce. It was a novel way to eat courgette that I enjoyed.

Our other starter of Tutsulu Somon was smoked salmon served atop a cracked wheat, onion, tomato and parsley salad with a pomegranate sauce. The start of the dish was the zingy salad but I couldn’t detect much pomegranate.

To save space for dinner that evening, we only had one main course to share and Emma chose lamb kofte. It had a wonderful char from the grill but it was a little underseasoned.

All in all, a good lunch for a very reasonable price with good service. Guests are offered Turkish delight on the way out. Very appropriate.


Food: ★★★★☆ Service: ★★★★★ Ambiance: ★★★★☆ VFM: ★★★★☆ Overall: ★★★★☆

Price: We paid just over £10 per head. A bargain, especially if you have to spend a lot on a ring!
