A journey to Miletus

Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople
So if you’ve a date in Constantinople
She’ll be waiting in Istanbul

Last night’s dinner was a Greek & Turkish dinner. I started with the Aegean Cocktail Shrimp, and followed that with a Caesar salad. For the main course, I had some kind of chicken dish, served in a sauce very much like a Marsala sauce, and served with rice, spinach, and broccoli. Dessert was the really big news last night. Dad has been craving Key Lime pie all week, and even though it wasn’t on the menu tonight, our table captain prepared an entire pie for him. Of course, there was enough for the whole table, and though I’m not a big fan of key lime pie, I had to try it. Dad ate two slices and took a third with him. The waiting staff also brought out a big piece of chocolate cake for Mom and Dad for their anniversary, candle and all. Then was the main dessert. I chose the baklava, which I thought was quite good, and very sweet. And, of course, I had the chocolate mousse as well. This time I didn’t even have to ask for it. Our waitress, Viola, knew to bring it out to me.
