14 May Fez Mangal
There’s definitely no-fuss in this low-key, always-packed Turkish ocackbasi, where dried peppers and copper pans share the spotlight with celebrity pictures. Their specialty? The fire, as you can see from the bustling, sizzling kitchen.
The easy-going crowd gathers in this cult neighbourhood joint and its new extension with large tables, to feast on ace skewers and other delicacies on a budget: soft and moist minced beity chicken, grilled shish, warm pitas to dip in the hummus and baba ganoush…. All coming with a generous portion of rice and colourful veggies. Cherry on the BBQ, it’s BYOB. Come loaded or stock up at the counter.
