Review on Iznik
Adem and Pirlanta Oner have spent years collecting and accumulating Turkish artefacts for their enchanting little restaurant Iznik on Highbury Park, and the dining room is crammed with antiquities, hanging lamps, decorative tiles and carved wooden arches. Candles flicker on the tables in the evening and Turkish music plays hypnotically in the background.
Their menus haven't changed a great deal over the years, but you can expect a feast of great-value meze (mashed aubergines with yoghurt and garlic, diced liver fried with paprika, filo pastries filled with Feta cheese, for example). Main courses include plenty of high-protein grills and kebabs as well as casseroles and slow-cooked dishes ranging from moussaka to kofta meatballs with potatoes in tomato sauce. There are the usual sweet Ottoman pastries to finish, although bramble mousse is the kitchen's most famous dessert. Quaffable Turkish house wine suits the food; otherwise drink Efes beer or mint tea.
