4 Of The Best Turkish Restaurants In Tooting Bec According To Our Team
Istanbul Kebab & Mangal
Istanbul Kebab & Mangal is a very casual kebab shop – and it is actually one of our favourites in Tooting Bec because they really know how to make great kebabs and traditional Turkish food.
We highly recommend their starters – especially the Turkish Sausage, the Soslu Patilican (fried aubergine, red and green peppers, tomato sauce), the Hummus, and the Ezme (chopped onion, mixed peppers, tomato, parsley, pomegranate sauce).
When it comes to their main dishes, you can never go wrong with their kebabs with yoghurt – the Lamb Shish (with bread, tomato sauce, yoghurt, butter), the Adana Kofte (with bread, tomato sauce, yoghurt, butter), and the Iskender Kebab (lamb doner meat, bread, tomato sauce, yoghurt, butter).
