Tonight we decided to go cheap and stopped at one of our favorites, Avesta ( www.restoavesta.com ). As before I got the Manti, small beef filled dumplings, made by hand, in a yoghurt sauce for $12.99. There has to be well over 100 of the little dumplings in a serving. It's beyond my comprehension that someone would still make them by hand, but it you time it right, you can see her sitting in the window making them! They're tender, and the flavor is great. My wife had Menemen, a spicy tomato sauce with veggies and eggs that she just loved. I can't speak to the quality of the wine as that has never really clicked with me, but we had half a carafe for $11.95. I think our whole meal, including tax, came to $44. If you want an inexpensive night out, Avesta is great.
