19 Numara Bos Cirrik 2
Every part of London is full of favourites. Favourite pubs, newsagents, chicken shops, and bus stops. The reasons vary—be it Taytos behind the bar, or a bossman with boss chat—but the point is you’ve got your go-tos for a reason, and Numara Bos Cirrik II is one of our favourite Turkish spots around Stoke Newington. It’s a straightforward, old-school ocakbasi restaurant that just makes downright good food. We’ve lost count the number of times we’ve come here for a beyti wrap and stayed for a bowl of lentil soup. The menu is standard, classic fare and so is the inside—as good for groups as it is for solo grilled meats—it’s a firm favourite and we don’t think that will ever change.
