Turkish | Harringay | Reservations
Go to any Turkish restaurant on Green Lanes and I can guarantee that you won’t spend up to £20 for a satisfying meal + a beer. Think you may even be able to BYOB. My regz is Gökyüzü which has recently had a makeover. They give you loads of free bread, dips and a delicious colourful salad, so you only ever need to order a main. Brimming with people every day of the week – great vibes, great value. Walk Ins & Reservations

Malaysian | Holloway Rd | NR
I came upon Sambal Shiok in 2017 when they had a residency at Blend Cafe on Green Lanes. I initially went on my own where I sampled the Assam laksa and my goodness was I blown away by the flavour; I returned that same week with some pals and we ordered a rice dish, laksa and their Malaysian fried chicken. Whilst I haven’t yet been to Sambal’s permanent site on Holloway Road, I have no hesitation in whole hardheartedly recommending this spot. The passion Mandy has for this place means she’ll never let the standards drop.

Pizza| Tottenham | Reservations
If you’re lucky enough to live in Tottenham, then you should do yourself a favour and never cook again because Loven Pizza will fix you up real good.
Their Neapolitan style pizza made from Caputo flour, is baked in their on site, wood-fired oven. I love a classic margherita – and theirs is salty, soft…delicious and currently 7 quid. Get some wine and your winning. I’m also a big fan of Yard Sale Pizza in Finsbury Park and I like Sodo Pizza in Clapton.
