North London

Kervan Sofrasi, Edmonton, London

Kervan Sofrasi, Edmonton, London

One of my first food comas in London came in the form of Kervan Sofrasi – and we only ordered a platter for two! The theme here is family-style Turkish but the effect is a major meat-fest. Located more north than I’m used to, my […]

KFC, Wood Green, London

KFC, Wood Green, London

There didn’t appear to be a heap of options open for my pre-movie dinner, so the time was up for a K-Fed comparison feed. The KFC in the UK is reasonably akin to the ones back home (and other home). They do operate with a […]

Dotori, Finsbury Park, London

Dotori, Finsbury Park, London

The doors have reopened at Dotori, however, the experience doesn’t seem to agree. I was enormously keen to check it out (look at that average rating!), so much that I popped in over consecutive days to try and get a table. I should have stopped there, […]

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park

I enjoy irony hunting as much as the next middle-class, poverty tourist hipster but truth be told I just wanted chicken dammit. It’s an intriguing institution and there are so many of these chicken stores here in the UK, it was simply by chance that […]

Roosters Piri Piri, Turnpike Lane

Roosters Piri Piri, Turnpike Lane

Roosters Piri Piri is one of the main chicken-themed chains in the UK, they sure love their bird here. I popped along one mid-week evening to get some clean eating in. For £6.99 I had the (single) chicken wrap with lemon & herb piri piri […]

Spouter’s Corner Wetherspoon, Wood Green

Spouter’s Corner Wetherspoon, Wood Green

£2.80 for a full English Breakfast. And precisely (or should that be pricey) the reason I popped into the Spouter’s Corner for my morning fix. It’s part of the Wetherspoon chain of pubs (why is that a thing here) meaning the food is a bit […]

Kebab Delight, Wood Green

Kebab Delight, Wood Green

Staying in the Wood Green means making the most of amazing Turkish delicacies nearby. Originally the bain marie stylings of Kebab Delight lured me in, but I ended up ordering the doner lamb meal (£7.50) dine in. So much food. They start you off with […]

Granier Bakery & Cafe, Turnpike Lane

Granier Bakery & Cafe, Turnpike Lane

English breakfast, but on a pizza slice. The liberal lashings of glaze make the offerings from Granier Bakery & Cafe attractive and enticing. There’s 120 branches of this Spanish store but the store still carries a friendly, neighbourly vibe. Pizza was about the £2 mark, […]

Tennessee Express, Turnpike Lane

Tennessee Express, Turnpike Lane

It was on the way home to my Airbnb but it was a tad dire. I mean, it is £2.80 for two pieces of chicken and fries so it wasn’t like I wasn’t expecting any kind of culinary magic. The fries were alright but the […]
