Amongst the smouldering competition of Green Lanes’ ocakbasi grills, its Diyarbakir that might just edge the top spot. The dough is charred and blistered, thin and cracker-like at the edges, and carries an oozing smoky mince mixture in the middle. Unlike many lahmacuns, Diyarbakir’s lahmacun actually tastes of lamb - especially when eaten straight, without salads or sauces - and is generous with its topping. If you’re overwhelmed, confused or, worst of all, hungry on Green Lanes, then this restaurant is an always guaranteed winner.
