In the category of skewered food cooked before
your eyes, Tas Firin hands down takes the title
in the area off Brick Lane; wowing diners with
all things kebab.
Vegetarians be prepared, the veggie kebab requires
an extra half-hour to cook, but we promise you
won't mind. The rest of the options make for a
meat feast peppered with beautifully prepared
Turkish sides, including perfectly salted haloumi
cheese and almost airy humus.
The fact that
Banglatown hides the best Turkish restaurant
in the Near East is one of the many miracles
of the neighborhood. Another miracle is
getting a table on a Thursday evening; but
if you don't see a queue you're in.
Tas Firin maintains its old look in the
otherwise fresh-faced surroundings.
