Terrific kebabs in Kentish Town Road, very popular with locals.
During refurbishment before its opening in October 2011, the owners of this kebab shop uncovered an old shop sign over the door. They decided to keep both sign and name – a popular move with locals. When a national restaurant critic wrote a rapturous review, E. Mono’s success was sealed. And with good reason. The food is a cut above your average drunkard’s dream kebab shop. The salad fillings are varied and tasty. The portions are enormous: our chicken shawarma weighed over 500g. While the meat is nothing special (a little fatty and under-seasoned), the well dressed salad compensates. The lamb shish is excellent, but the chips are merely satisfactory. Warning: chilli sauce is applied with abandon. If you don’t love the burn, ask for less of it. Since the restaurant opened in 2012, it has taken over the space next door so there is ample seating space if you don't fancy taking your kebab for a walk down Kentish Town Road.
