Mangal 1 in Dalston, was established in 1990 and it is a typical ocakbasi: serving kebabs from a sizzling grill and a hot table laden with stews and braises.

Hot pide and sac breads accompany starters of lentil soup or garlicky cacik, plus there are dishes like ezme that combine roasted aubergine mashed with olive oil, fresh tomato, green herbs and hot pepper.

It's very popular with the local Turkish community and visitors to the nearby Arcola Theatre and Cafe Oto. 

A second outpost, Mangal 2, later opened round the corner on Kingsland Road, famously becoming art world stars Gilbert & George's daily supper destination.
