Big Chefs January 17, 2010

Posted by Steven Bartus in Breakfast, Turkish Cuisine.

Breakfast might be my favorite meal of the day. There is always something really awesome about waking up and having a very serious meal to get you going. On the weekends, a long and leisurely brunch with friends ranks among the greatest joys in life. For those seeking such a superlative experience in Ankara, I suggest you check out Big Chefs.

Big Chefs offers a massive Sunday buffet featuring all the staples of a Turkish breakfast plus a great selection of salads and pastries. You will undoubtedly get your fill of delicious cheeses, jams, fruits and vegetables. For those with a sweet tooth, the variety of cakes is daunting. My advice: try the chocolate-banana one in the middle of the dessert spread. Yes, like with most buffets you’ll probably end up eating too much. Just accept it, call it a “blinner” (breakfast-lunch-dinner), and have a good time.

There are three Big Chefs in Ankara: on Filistin Sk. in Gaziosmanpaşa, in the Minisera AVM in Çayyolu, and on 29. Cad. in Çukrambar (Google Maps). However, brunch is only served at the latter two between the hours of 10:00 and 14:00 on Sunday. The price per person is 30TL ($20 at 1.46TL/$) including drinks. Reservations are recommended.
