Fodor's Review

Captivating meringue-filled foodie window displays and a funky modern all-white interior characterize this flagship North African, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean deli/bakery/café set in Islington's main Upper Street drag. Sit at white melamine tables and dig into exceptionally inventive, tasty, and healthy dishes like roasted sweet potatoes with burnt eggplant and pomegranate, lamb cutlets with okra, Tunisian harissa-spiced chicken, or golden beetroot, red cabbage, and sour cream, along with cult Ottolenghi fresh salads, savories, soups, flaky pastries, and artisanal cakes. Go home with a knockout take-out chocolate meringue or plum-and-quince tart, and pick up Ottolenghi's outstanding Israeli- and Palestinian-inspired cookbook, Jerusalem, on the way out, too.
