Do You Know Brains?

Around 11:30 or 12:00, while we were in Ankara this past Monday, we stopped for lunch at a pretty typical Turkish restaurant.
After we ordered our main courses the proprietor, the waiter and a minion (see our post on minions from earlier this year) came over with the customary large tray of salads. If you're eating in a sit down restaurant In Turkey expect to have at least one course before your entree arrives. As usual in broken English the waiter and proprietor told us what each of the salads was; beans, peppers and yogurt, just the usual. But one salad caught us all unawares, the proprietor picked up one dish and said "You know brains?" and sure enough on that plate was two or three pieces of what was probably sheep brain and some greens. Yes, we know brains alright. We elected not to have them for lunch though.
