Courgette and mint fritters were an instant favorite at ours, melt-in-the-mouth morsels with a hit of feta, and an exuberant dill-flavored dipping yogurt. Another favorite of mine was the Beetroot Kisir. Which was shocking to me because I normally hate beetroot and always think I am eating dirt when I have it, but I was pleasantly surprised by this dish and how refreshing it was. The hummus was great and so was the Hellim, which was chargrilled halloumi covered in a sweet honey sauce. The balance of salty cheese covered in honey was delicious!
After all this food I had no room for dessert, but of course, there is always room for dessert. The star of the dessert menu had to be the Tirilice. It is a milky and soft cake that has a spongy middle. It was covered in milk and caramel glaze and had a sharp raspberry sauce around it. It was a gorgeous and well-balanced dessert.
Overall I was very impressed with the entire menu. Some dishes were a bit underwhelming, but like I said before the mezzes would be the reason I go back to visit again. There is no denying that Laz Camden is attempting to elevate Turkish cuisine above the ordinary street food and trying to stand out from the crowd.
