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 friends Rob and Anne headed along. We ordered only the platter and all the sides that came along with that. Pita, salads, dips and the a massive pile of meat. We had koftas, ribs, rice and more meat. The plate is even bigger than the picture suggests, we had struggled to finish it off. And it’s great stuff. The meat is super juicy and cooked well with the dips and seasonings making every bite so flavourful. It makes for a great value meal out with plenty to choose from.
It’s a busy spot for the locals as well, with the restaurant packed on our evening. I finished off things a little bit lighter (cough) with the Oreo cheesecake. Not the most authentically Turkish thing out there, but hey, it was yum. It would form on of my recommendations for dining out in London, Kervan Sofrasi’s a great experience full of good times and lots of meat.
