Our colleagues who operate the boutique hotel ''Su'' in Bodrum were a bit miffed when a restaurant of the same name appeared near the Bodrum cruise port terminal last year, so we engaged in a bit of an emotional boycott of the venue until our curiosity won over.
We visited the restaurant with a writer and photographer from the exclusive magazine Monocle, which is preparing an article on gulet building for an upcoming issue.
One of the outstanding dishes was the fish kokoreç roasted on a spiced spit. This dish is normally prepared with internal sheep organs, but done with a light white fish, was fantastic with overtones of cumin, red peppers and garlic. Another highlight was the stuffed börek - chimichanga burrito style - with octopus, shrimp and calamari. I also loved the cured sea bass with lemon and vinegar.
Su is not cheap - most mezes were between 15-30 TL each. Here is the website.
