Honey Road was great! We really enjoyed our meal.
My husband, myself and out 20 year old stopped in last night for dinner.
It is a a very welcoming warm space, the bar would be our first choice but we did have a table reserved. Its not a huge place but a good size. And the was a covered area outside to as well.
Church Street in Burlington is very lively. It would be a good spot for a cocktail and nosh to watch the world go by.
DH had a cocktail, I had wine and son had soda. Nice cocktail and wine service.
We ordered Baba Ganoush with cauliflower, home made pita bread and lamb crackers. The dip was really good, the pita so good I am not researching home made pita recipes but the lamb crackers were the best.
They were described as really really thin rolled out dough spread with “essence of lamb”, doubled over and baked. Very crunchy baked lamb bite. But there is nothing in the middle. Just a great lamb flavored cracker.
We also ordered the harissa wings, grilled octopus, moussaka, grape leaves, pide, and the eggplant fatteh.
Too much for the 3 of us, but we wanted to try it all. And it was good. The wings were really messy but a good sweet/hot balance. Octopus was grilled perfectly. The mousakka was kind of falling apart but it tasted good.
The pide was the best. A boat shaped piece of dough with spiced ground lamb, egg and a soft cheese that is baked, then covered in herbs and tomatoes. You mix this all up and eat it. Its a traditional Turkish breakfast item. It was delicious!
I think the best part of some of the items we ordered were the sauces, salads and accompaniments. The salad the octopus came with, the labne with the wings and the dolmas . Thoughtful additions that elevated the meal.
We passed on dessert. Our Ben and Jerry’s stop early was plenty of sweets for the day.
Service was a little lax but we weren’t in any rush and they were pretty busy.
I would highly recommend Honey Road to anyone in the area.
