There's not a whole lot that will coax you off the couch on a frosty winter weeknight, though we have an inkling Efendy's new weekly dinner deal should do just that. Balmain's acclaimed Turkish restaurant is this week, July 4, kicking off a series of bottomless meze and wine nights, on offer from 5pm every Wednesday and Thursday.
Yep — two nights a week, head in and cosy up to an authentic Turkish feast prepared by chef Somer Sivrioglu, with likes of warm lavash bread with zahter butter, smoked eggplant with pistachio and tahini, crisp pastry-wrapped prawns with walnut and capsicum dip and findik lahmacun (a Turkish-style pizza) topped with spiced lamb. To complete the meal, there'll also be plenty of Turkish sweets.
As well as all that food, diners will also enjoy a bottomless two-hour drinks package, sipping their way through an endless range of Turkish whites, reds and rosés — with the whole thing (food included) coming in at just $60 per person.
If that's not worth coming out of hibernation for, we don't know what is.
