SquareMeal Review of Le Ziz

In the heart of newly developed, über-trendy Dalston Square, this restaurant, lounge and bar makes the case for regional Turkish cuisine against a sophisticated backdrop of traditional Ottoman-motif tiling and swathes of very British chesterfield seating. Culinary influences come from Anatolia, old Mesopotamia and the Mediterranean, while an open oven makes its presence felt in the kitchen – particularly when it comes to boat-shaped pide and pizzas with meaty toppings. Also expect a full range of cold and hot mezze, from hummus, tabbouleh and patlican (smoked aubergine purée with garlic and yoghurt) to börek, falafel and ciger tava (stir-fried lamb’s liver with red onion and parsley). Grills and slow-cooked casseroles also loom large, while lavish desserts add the final gloss – try the muhallebeli kadayif (shredded pastry in syrup with pistachios and walnuts).
