Squaremeal Review of Black Axe Mangal ?

When you take a hipster who’s spent 10 years working at St John Bread & Wine, a pop-up restaurant, a Copenhagen nightclub and a swish version of Turkish kebabbery, the result is bound to be pretty cool. Lee Tiernan and his wife Kate have created their own selection of ‘kebabs, beers and other tasty junk’. Forget pitta: instead you’ll find imaginative plates such as salty smoked cod roe and crisps, followed by plump mussels with deliciously fatty bacon and zingy chilli. A plate of meaty kids’ offal is a delight, gloriously balanced by a side of hispi cabbage. We greedily followed this with Chinese-spiced Adana of lambs' tongues (a revelation), which arrived with lashings of sauce that we dutifully mopped up with homemade flatbread. Drinks are equally good (including a cocktail list from Ryan ‘Mr Lyan’ Chetiyawardana): a Lagerita does the trick, counterbalancing the spice, but giving an extra Tequila kick.

Unique is a word that is becoming less and less appropriate for the London dining scene but I think Black Axe Mangal might have just coined it!
    Ex St. John Bread & Wine chef Lee Tiernan and his wife Kate have created a miniature Mangal avant-garde meatery that has everyone buzzing around town. Actually, it does...

    Vi Vian :: Vi vian Black Axe Mangal Islington

    Black Axe Mangal, Islington – small, loud, bold, weird and outlandish. This sums up pretty much everything about Black Axe Mangal from their interior, decoration, fittings and not least, food. It is hardly the place you would take a date out to for a romantic night, gazing into each other’s eyes and drowning out everyone else around you. It’s casual, has the neighbourhood/local feel, somewhere for a takeaway after a couple of pints, a notch up from the usual kebab place and the music is much too heavy and loud to ignore.
