A French twist

Bonjour mon amis, yesterday was all frenchy at Brisbane alongside the beautiful river city capital of sunny queensland, so we decided to venture down and take a look. It was a fabulous day again, half of brisbane must have had the same idea as it was crowded although we didnt arrive until after1pm so it was a lunch time rush.  The "festival" was small so perhaps it will be expanded in the future, as it was so popular. We intended to eat some nibbles and wander around casually but it was impossible as there were queues at every stall, so we ended up eating  turkish at a wonderful restaraunt very close by. The food was fab, and they have these turkish delight martinis which are quite sweet but very yummy,       which i had previously tested and of course needed to confirm how good they were!

this is ahmets in southbank brisbane, very colourful

We started with a mixed mezze platter to share, with falafel, dolmades, eggplant and a stuffed capsicum all beautifully prepared

My meal, tender barbeque lamb strips in yogurt and eggpalnt puree, very tasty and generous serving

lamb skewers was another dish that was fab

So we started out as french and ended up turkish !
