Honey & Co chefs Sarit Packer (left) and Itamar Srulovich (right) suggest their quartet of Middle Eastern food destinations.
‘A tiny little Middle Eastern restaurant in Tooting serving fresh, vibrant food; the owner is one of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.’ 34 Trinity Rd, SW17 7RE.
‘The most amazing Turkish bakery. We love their sweet stuff. And the savouries (including lahmacun, börek and pide) are as good as any you’ll find in Istanbul.’ 495-497 Green Lanes, N4 1AL.
Mediterranean Food Centre
‘Every area should be so lucky to have such an amazing corner store - beautiful fruit and veg, cheeses and pickles, every spice imaginable, and a great bakery next door.’ 45 Streatham High Rd, SW2 4TS.
‘A Knightsbridge landmark serving delicious, carefully prepared food - especially good are the mujadara (‘pockmarked’ rice with lentils), quail and their dazzling breads.’ 8-9 William St, SW1X 9HL.
'Honey & Co: The Baking Book' by Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich is published by Saltyard Books (£25).
