Kebab Delight, Wood Green, London

Kebab Delight, Wood Green, London

Staying in the Wood Green meant making the most of the many, amazing Turkish delicacies nearby. The areas is rich with this community group and that shows in the local cuisine on offer. I was lured in by the sweet wafts of the bain-maries of […]

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

I enjoy irony hunting as much as the next middle-class, poverty tourist hipster. But truth be told, I simply want fried chicken dammit. The houses of chicken are an intriguing institution and there are so many of these stores here in the UK. The ever […]

The Good Egg, Stoke Newington, London

The Good Egg, Stoke Newington, London

A good egg or a bad egg? We had both sides of the egg on our visit to Jerusalem-styled neighbourhood eatery The Good Egg. It’s a venue with a lot of fanfare, afternoon queues and mentions across much of the hip city press. In fact, […]

Kervan Sofrasi, Wood Green, London

Kervan Sofrasi, Wood Green, 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, […]

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 […]

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, […]
