ou can’t really go wrong when it comes to choosing a good Turkish spot in North London, but our favourite is Mangal 1 Ocakbasi, which brings the authentic eats and all of the fun without the trek to Green Lanes. Your best bet is to get a few plates of meat, which are cooked on a grill that has seemingly magical powers, and to add on a couple fresh salads and breads. Grab a few mates, load up your table and order a few of their brilliant homemade starters, and you’re guaranteed a great, no-fuss evening.
