The secret places

I’ve lived East for just over a couple of years now, but its only a year since I was ‘introduced’ to Bistrotheque, the other secret spot I now know of is on Arnold Circus (*wink*), so do any of my hackney friends know of any others?


  1. Mangal (the original & the BEST) Ocakbasi restaurant on Arcola Street. You’ll never look back. Order the kofte- or if there’s a few of you order the mixed grill (for one less than there are of you – it’s huge). That’s your mains sorted – have a mixed mezze to share. BYO booze – triffic.

  2. Best deal in Hackney is LMNT before 7pm or at lunch time. So entertaining a space too.
