BEN’S BLOG: ‘Buzzy, Buzzy, Buzzy’

ben_keith_team-150x150[dropcap]S[/dropcap]everal people have raved to me about the Turkish restaurant, Aksular, in Palmers Green. So tonight, I took the drive up norf, to check it out. And what a restaurant it is too. Rammed, there must be 250 seats, and the atmosphere is absolutely non-stop. On arrival; huge piles of a delicious and fruity, fresh salad, Hummus, Taramasalata, Tzatziki, aubergine and tomato, and thick hot pitta-bread were instantly produced. Then followed 2 x chicken shawarmas, with rice, and real, fresh chili sauce. Baklava to finish. A cracking meal. Aksular scores a well deserved and fantastic value for money: 9. The price? £22.40. Yes. £22.40. I left them a 30. BIGTIMER.

In other news:

greenlanesWhen I drive through Green Lanes, as I did tonight, I practically have to start self-harming, over the fact I don’t own a betting-shop there. Turkish and Greek restaurant, after restaurant, lined up. ‘We don’t take cards’ (in 2014).

Still Cash-people. Buzzy, buzzy, buzzy. Everyone out in the street. Millions of punters practically with post-it notes stuck to their foreheads, reading ‘PLEASE LEAD ME TO THE NEAREST ROULETTE MACHINE’.
