Walking home this evening I saw some guys in Shamata. After chatting with them, I wondered if we could wish for one new restaurant on Green Lanes what would it be?
Now, for me If there was somewhere I could get arepa like the Venezuelan mom'n'pop place in Crystal Palace, that would be fine and dandy.
What about you?
Tapas: a nearby Harringay place, though not strictly on Green Lanes, is La Vina, on Wightman Road opposite Harringay railway station. Worth a walk up Burgoyne Road. No live website (it was live a year ago, hope that's not a portent) but search "La Vina" N4 for reviews beyond HoL.
I would love a Korean place. Bibimbap...
I also agree to the person who suggested a decent Italian place. Currently my partner and I travel to San Marco in Bruce Grove - it's absolutely wonderful. The food and wine is lovely and the atmosphere is warm and authentic.
A place with authentic russian food - there are hardly any about and most are ridiculously expensive!
Troika, in Chalk Farm, if you're going out.
I think that place has closed. There's Mari Vanna in Knightsbridge but... Knightsbridge prices for food that costs less than a fiver to make.
