    The arrival of local cafe Blend Harringay was a breath of fresh air to Green Lanes, bringing proper coffee, cakes and a great work and social space to the somewhat barren stretch between The Salisbury pub and Turnpike Lane.

    Blend will now be livening up the area even more when they launches a six month residency from Sambal Shiok, who’ll be dishing up steaming hot bowls of laksa noodle soup from 25 October. The arrival of Sambal Shiok follows their

Burger are putting on a residency at Off Broadway, but even more pleased to hear it's going to be a slider bar.
