When deprived of fresh food, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your Social Security number on crowded buses or ending every sentence with "in my pants." Tame an unruly tongue by giving into its demands with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Turkish cuisine and drink at Pasha Mezze in Norfolk.
Pasha Mezze's three generations of Turkish kitchen alchemists transmute piles of local ingredients into a menu of healthy, flavorful cuisine, then serve it with a flair of Mediterranean and Anatolian flavors. Embark on your international taste-bud tour with a bowl of award-winning organic red-lentil soup ($6.50) or a mezze of smoked-salmon bruschetta ($6.99). The char-grilled mediterranean ground-beef kebab ($19.99) with a side of yogurt sauce appeases the stomach's tape-dragon, and vegans can throw their mouth a surprise party by ordering the weekend cuisine special. Pasha Mezze’s brunch menu rebels against the conformity of society's structured mealtimes with diurnal delicacies such as the turkish-style french toast topped with homemade strawberry-agave jam, cinnamon, and whipped cream ($7.99).
Pasha Mezze's airy outdoor patio lets you foreground the sight of passing runners and the stampeding bulls at their heels with a glass of wine or a specialty cocktail such as the Marrakesh martini ($8). The madagascar vanilla in a dessert of pasha crème-brulee cheesecake ($6.49) creates a silky-sweet counterpart to the restaurant's comfortable Turkish ambience and large windows.
- Pasha is such a cozy and comfortable restaurant. I loved the atmosphere and the service was excellent. Parking is very convenient in the shopping center. – Delicious!
- The hummus is wonderful! The lamb sandwich is melt in your mouth, and the homemade bread is so yummy I just want to eat a whole loaf! – Marnay M., Yelp, 2/11/11
