Mangal Ocakbasi Launch

Last week I was lucky to attend the Launch of the new Turkish restaurant, Mangal Ocakbasi in Shoreditch. I was brought along by fellow blogger friend Christine (xtineloves.com) and met other blogger friend Shante (shantesaysstyle.co.uk) there aswell.

Me and Christine dived straight in and went for happy hour cocktails when we sat down!

We were then told by one of the lovely waitresses that we would be treated to sample their starters, main courses and desserts. 

For starters we had naan bread plus a selection of dips including Hummous, Ezme Salata, Cacik and Patucan Salata. It was lovely and was brought more bread on request. Each dip was unique but very delicious.


For mains, we had a selection of different kebab meat (chicken, ribs, beef) on platter. We could've been given a more generous portion however I can't really complain! Each piece of meat was cooked to perfection and not too burnt.


And lastly for dessert, we sampled some authentic Turkish delicacies which had a pistachio base. (I can't remember the exact name of it and it isn't on the menu on the website ahhh) They were tiny but really nice and not too sweet.


The whole range was very tasty and I would definitely go again.

  With the nice atmosphere of the restaurant and friendly staff and not to mention flavoursome food, I would give this a 4/5.

You can visit the restaurant at:  62-68 Rivington Street, London, EC2A 3AY.

Thanks to Mangal Ocakbasi for having me!!! :)
