Arch 338 Acton Mews (Between Dunston St & Dunston Rd), Haggerston, London E8 4EA
Latest critic review: June 04, 2015
This is a joint venture between Josh Katz (ex Galvin Bistrot de Luxe and Ottolenghi) and Mattia Bianchi (ex Ottolenghi and Ben Spalding). It takes inspiration from Turkey's Mangal restaurants, the grill & kebab houses of Istanbul, the food stalls of Jmaa al Fna in Marrakesh and the Shipudim in Tel Aviv. Essentially expect a lot of grilled meat and veg.
"There is whole spiced forequarter of lamb, long roasted and repeatedly basted with cumin and paprika butter and then shredded, to be eaten rolled up in crisp green leaves of mint, dill, and flat-leaf parsley. It feels both good for you and shameful at the same time." READ REVIEW

"As at many barbecues, the pickles, sides and vegetables are more interesting than the meat. Chunks of beetroot are served on whipped feta and garnished with candied orange; grilled asparagus is served with toum, the Levantine version of aioli, then garnished with mustard seeds." READ REVIEW
