When many of us are looking to spend less and have the best of food, we head to the Chinese restaurants; they are good at giving you some tasty fried rice or noodles on budget, especially when we are with friends. It’s just not the Chinese restaurants alone which can offer this—and if you love to try different kinds of food from different countries, the Turkish restaurants are relatively inexpensive and you would be amazed at what the little money you allocate for a Lunch or Dinner can fetch you.
A platter for 3-4 people in a North London Turkish restaurant like the CharcoalGrill in Woodgreen where I recently visited will just cost you something around £27—and it comes with a tasty Mediterranean salad, a Turkish meze starter and the famous sweet Turkish bread.
Just like CharcoalGrill, Gokyuzu Restaurant which has a branch not far from Woodgreen’s CharcoalGrill also offers authentic Mediterranean dishes-it’s a Turkish spot serving classic dishes cooked in a traditional oven. I was there two days ago for dinner as you can see from the photos and it was ‘beautifully’ delicious.
If you live in London or would be visiting London this summer, any of the two restaurants can be a good introduction to Turkish dishes.
