Best Restaurants in London - Mangal Ocakbasi The Modern Pantry

Mangal Ocakbasi
The Mangal Ocak Basi calls itself simply the best Turkish Restaurant in East London. In Turkey ocakbasi restaurants are where people eat when they're out, as opposed to places to go out to eat at. The in-out service and occasionally raucous atmosphere does not make it a place for relaxed dining, but as an informal dinner stop-off it is perfect and still brilliantly cheap. The restaurant is located at 10 Arcola Street, E8 2DJ in London.

The Modern Pantry
Modern comes from the Latin term modernus, Pantry comes from the Latin word panis, meaning bread. A pantry is a cupboard or room which houses the necessities of life. The Chef is Anna Hansen. In 2005 Anna left her old restaurant The Providores to focus on developing The Modern Pantry which opened its doors to critical acclaim in August 2008. Famous dishes are prawn omelette with spring onion, Vietnamese-style braised pigs cheeks with pickles, Thai basil and deep-fried chilli or tonka bean shortbread with lemon custard. The restaurant is located at 47-48 St John's Square, EC1V 4JJ, London.
