This weekend my boyfriend and I decided to put ourselves in a pre holiday mood by lapping
up some Turkish food.
Aziz Mangal is a little Turkish place on Shaftesbury Avenue.
It is nothing swanky aesthetically, somewhat side street take away-esc but the food is sure to please.
The meat is cooked on a charcoal grill which smells amazing.
Personally, I was all set to pop on my maxi dress, embellished sandals and pretend I was sat by the ocean.
Upon arrival you are greeted with this delight, complentary of course.
After a long day walking from one end of London to the other, scouring Westfields and becoming emotionally engrossed in Le Mis, my food was devoured in a matter of seconds.
We then opted for a main of Yogurtlu Chicken Beyti
which is spicy minced chicken with garlic, yogurt, flatbread, a tomato sauce and rice.
It was scrumptious to say the least..
A mixture of traditonal turkish flavours, chargrilled chicken and some spice.
It all felt very rustic.
And ofcourse, after something savoury you simply have to devour something sweet...
It is the law.
My weekend was also spent on Portobello Road..scouring the market on a chinaware
The sun was shining, the sky was blue and there was something exciting about following the crowds in the weekend haze.
I came away with three 1910 blue and white saucers.
The perfect additions to my shelf of antiques something I cannot wait to see when I visit home next week.
