London, for all it’s park form during the summer months - the disposable tin, the burnt sausages, the suspect chicken, - is not a BBQ city. At least, not in the cuisine sense. So everyone should be happy that From The Ashes is in Hackney Wick. The little BBQ hatch may well be best known for it’s sweet and savoury doughnuts - handmade sugar-coated pillows packed with smoked pork and n’duja - but everything here is moist, smoky, and all-together delicious. The smoked pork and beef buns are easy go-tos and sides of crispy beef fat potatoes and burnt end beans add up to a fantastic, pre-nap meal. Heads-up that you can click and collect via their website if you don’t fancy hanging about outside.

Big Easy is a loud and proud diner with Big BBQ Energy, lots of lobster, and a seriously boozy happy hour.
Black Axe Mangal
Black Axe Mangal on Highbury Corner isn’t a typical restaurant. It’s loud, it’s fun, and it’s a little bit weird. And the delicious food is the same.
