This year's Good Food Month lineup offers loads of great excuses for taking a long, lazy lunch, but if you're in the mood for Turkish food, look no further than Yagiz. On Friday, June 18, and Friday, June 25, the warm and vibrant South Yarra restaurant is serving up a special lunch menu showcasing chef-owner Murat Ovaz's signature modern spin on authentic Turkish cuisine.
Take a couple of hours out of your day and duck in here for a three-course feed. The full lunch lineup is being kept under wraps for now, though you can expect to be impressed — Yagiz's regular menu features such creations as confit duck cigars, fried mussels with tarama, brussels sprouts done with pomegranate molasses and dukkah, and a 12-hour braised lamb shoulder complemented by cacik (Turkish yoghurt) and kipfler potatoes.
The menu clocks in at $45 for your entree, main and dessert, plus a glass of Turkish wine.
