What is it?
Mangal 2 comes from the same guys as the original Mangal (just around the corner). Based in Dalston, East London, and just a 2 minute walk from Dalston Kingsland station, it’s one of the best Turkish grills in North East London. It’s nice enough inside, wooden tables and chairs and inoffensive decor – however the real focus however is on the open kitchen – this is where the magic happens.

What should you get?
Once considered a hidden gem, Mangal 2 is now famous for its outstanding quality kebabs and mixed grills. They serve up a Turkish menu of mezzes and kebabs. You can’t go to a Turkish joint and not get a mezze to start. Mains are around the £10-£12 mark, we’d recommend the Yaprak Doner which is the house’s special kebab made from 100% lamb steak (sans all the weird stuff). All mains are served with salad & grilled vegetables. The food is awesome, the portions are huge and the vibe is always buzzing (especially at a weekend). We highly recommend checking Mangal 2 out with some mates.

Corkage is free however there is catch, you must order a starter and per each person that’s enjoying the BYOB (fair), so keep this in mind. Make sure you book if you’re going on a Friday or Saturday as it is always very busy.
