Turkish Food in Hampstead

[Friday 12th March] Chie's cousin (Sato) and her friend (Miho) had arrived in England the day before, and were staying in a hotel in London for the first few nights of their holiday. So after work me and Chie headed into the city to meet them for dinner. Having attempted to book a few places in the centre and failed, we decided instead to resort to the old faithful - going up to Hampstead, where we knew lots of places, and it typically wasn't so busy. After a bit of a wander around, we decided on Zara, a Turkish restaurant just round the corner from where I used to live. I've always liked the food and the atmosphere in there, and the girls seemed to enjoy it to. I drank a few Rakis, which was quite enjoyable. Seemingly every Mediteranean country has it's own aniseedy drink - Pernod (or Pastis to be more general) for the French, Ouzo for the Greeks, Sambuca for the Italians (?) and Raki for the Turks.
