GO Different in North London

Alternative Eateries in North London

Why not let your tastebuds revel in an orgy of flavours by trying something a little unusual at a north London eatery.

Because London is such a melting pot of cultures you will find a wide range of cuisine from all over the world. However despite the number of restaurants in the capital there are few which serve Mexican cuisine, but north London can boast one of the best.

Santa Fe [map] in Islington offers you an individual Mexican eating experience that should leave you with a smile on your face. As soon as you walk through the door you’re greeted by the welcoming Mexican flavour of the décor. The food on offer has its roots in south western America but does borrow from other influences. Amongst the choice of tortillas and enchiladas you’ll also find dishes like char-grilled chicken galistea (chicken marinated in citrus and chilles served with spicy salsa fresca) to enjoy. You could then finish the night off by sampling all 25 of the tequilas on offer!

In your culinary travels around north London you may not have realised that you could venture to Eastern Europe just by taking a trip to Holloway Road. Here’s where you’ll find Tbilisi [map], a restaurant that serves Georgian/Russian style food. Expect to find on the menu stomach-filling stews, soups (including Borscht), monastic trout and other food with origins in the former Soviet Union.

Although similar to Indian cooking you’ll find that The Parsee [map], has something a little different to offer. Recipes originate from one of the oldest traditions and civilisations in the world and specialised dishes make the most of fresh herbs and spices without resorting to a Vindaloo style assault on your senses…a north London alternative to a traditional curry.

Another alternative to a curry at your local would be to taste the highlights of Afghan home cooking at the Afghan Kitchen [map]. This simple Islington restaurant is more functional than fancy but manages to maintain a relaxed atmosphere, but it’s the food that keeps diners coming back.

While many people can say they have experienced the delights of Indian or Chinese food, most will not have had the opportunity to take a culinary journey to Ethiopia. If it’s something you would like to try then head to Merkato Restaurant [map] in Kings Cross, where you’ll find authentic dishes and beverages which will satisfy your curiosity and your stomach.
