@TarshishLondonon won the @BritishKebabAwards Best Newcomer Restaurant/ Takeaway in London in 2017, we were expecting nothing, but top quality kebabs from #Tarshish. 

We’re happy to conclude that that’s precisely what we got.

As a Turkish and Mediterranean Grill, however, they also offer a whole lot more. With an extensive menu list, the dishes we had the pleasure of trying ranged from the average, such as the desserts, to the extremely good.

All in all, Tarshish is a large, spacious and modern restaurant that definitely demands a visit, particularly if you enjoy outstanding kebabs and cold mezes.

In Greek myth, Tartessos is the site of one of the 12 labours of Herakles.  The Greek hero’s tenth labour required him to make a journey to the end of the world to bring back the red cattle belonging to the three-headed monster Geryon.  At that time the ‘end of the world’ was considered to be to the west of Greece, beyond the Pillars of Hercules, now identified with the Straits of Gibraltar – in other words, the south-western coast of the Iberian Peninsula.

In the Old Testament, the city of Tarshish is mentioned as the place to which Jonah was fleeing when he was swallowed by the whale – a city that was noted for its large ships and its mineral wealth.  Although the city of Tarsus in Turkey has been suggested as the site of Tarshish, some biblical scholars point to Tartessos on the Spanish coast as the more likely identification.

New Cthulhutech character, Engel Pilot Jericho Saphine and her Tarshish, Sydon. I’m looking forward to the new edition of Cthulhutech, where I’ve heard they’re toning down some of the… infamous elements of the first edition.

I wanted to put the two together in an image with a background, but I couldn’t make the background how I wanted. I’m not there yet.

In no way is there anyone like you, O Jehovah. You are great, and your name is great in mightiness. Who should not fear you, O King of the nations, for to you it is fitting; because among all the wise ones of the nations and among all their kingships there is in no way anyone like you. And at one and the same time they prove to be unreasoning and stupid. A tree is a mere exhortation of vanities. Silver beaten into plates is what is brought in even from Tar′shish, and gold from U′phaz, the workmanship of a craftsman and of the hands of a metalworker; their clothing is blue thread and wool dyed reddish purple. They are all the workmanship of skilled people.
—  Jeremiah 10:6-9, NWT

Jehovah is great and much to be praised
In the city of our God, [in] his holy mountain.

Pretty for loftiness, the exultation of the whole earth,
Is Mount Zion on the remote sides of the north,
The town of the grand King.

With an east wind you WRECK the SHIPS of Tar′shish.

Just as we have heard, so we have seen
In the city of Jehovah of armies, in the city of our God.
God himself will firmly establish it to time indefinite. ​Se′lah.

We have pondered, O God, over your loving‐kindness
In the midst of your temple.

Like your name, O God, so your praise is
To the borders of the earth.
Your right hand is full of righteousness itself.

—  Psalms 48:1-2,7-10, NWT
The Sermon #9.8

“‘Who’s there?’ cries the Captain at his busy desk, hurriedly making out his papers for the Customs—'Who’s there?’ Oh! how that harmless question mangles Jonah! For the instant he almost turns to flee again. But he rallies. 'I seek a passage in this ship to Tarshish; how soon sail ye, sir?’ Thus far the busy Captain had not looked up to Jonah, though the man now stands before him; but no sooner does he hear that hollow voice, than he darts a scrutinizing glance. 'We sail with the next coming tide,’ at last he slowly answered, still intently eyeing him. 'No sooner, sir?'—'Soon enough for any honest man that goes a passenger.’ Ha! Jonah, that’s another stab. But he swiftly calls away the Captain from that scent. 'I’ll sail with ye,'—he says,—'the passage money how much is that?—I’ll pay now.’ For it is particularly written, shipmates, as if it were a thing not to be overlooked in this history, 'that he paid the fare thereof’ ere the craft did sail. And taken with the context, this is full of meaning.
