Square Meal Review of Zilouf’s ?

Individuality is the key at this debonair restaurant-cum-cocktail bar at the calmer end of Upper Street. It’s a father & son business, & the Messrs Zilouf have surrounded themselves with people who like to think differently. The menu is an enticing east/west fusion, so you might find Thai shredded duck salad with caramelised salted peanuts & spicy nahm jim sauce, or fore rib of beef with Asian greens, double-cooked chips, wasabi hollandaise, herb butter & horseradish cream. Meat comes from Smithfield, fish from Billingsgate & bread, ice creams & sauces are made in-house. There’s a sophisticated wine list, but it’s the cocktails that bat their eyelids at you. Purées, syrups & spirit infusions (all made here) go into stunners such as the Japanese 75 – jasmine tea-infused gin, grapefruit gomme, lemon juice & Champagne. How terribly elegant.

    Rate My Bistro :: Ziloufs – Angel

    A late Friday afternoon is how we ended up at Ziloufs! We weren’t sure what we were expecting when we went into Ziloufs. We were after a relaxed afternoon with some tea!

    Surprisingly, Ziloufs was a spacious place with a separate dining area and another area near to the bar. There was plenty of light coming into the bar area due to the glass front of Ziloufs. It was nice that there were cosy leather sofas, just what we were looking for!

    Ziloufs did serve tea and they did it by the pot! The Earl Grey tea was good. The latte was made of strong coffee and it had a good depth to it...

    Scrummy Suppers & Quirky Cakes :: Zilouf

    My brief for a girlie night out (really out, not just the local pub - Mums On The Town) was cocktails, cocktails and some food to set us up for the evening. Zilouf's ticked all the boxes. Located towards the Highbury end of Upper Street, we entered a seemingly regular pub, the clientele young, gorgeous and trendy (we fitted it perfectly, obviously). At the back, a dining room, cosy and quirky - some of the wallpaper could be construed as slightly rude, were they leaves, were they...?

    Cook & Pour :: Ziloufs, brunch in Islington | Cook & Pour

    Ziloufs is an all day venue serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and a great selection of cocktails.

    The morning after the night before, we wanted a hearty brunch to combat the effects of what started of as one drink at our local (yep, you know that drill). Ziloufs is local and having passed it a few times, I was keen to see what the morning buzz was about.

    It keeps it simple mostly with a selection of fresh fruit drinks, full english (meat and veg options); eggs, bacon and the like served in various mixes, and a curve ball with veggiemite on the menu!...
