Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

It’s not easy finding Turkish breakfasts in London, but Red Art opens early and offers several versions of menemen, a hearty dish of scrambled eggs, tomatoes and green peppers, similar to the North African shakshouka. The sucuk (sausages) version comes in a large silver pan with a basket of bread – it’s a fantastic breakfast and good value at around £4.50. Balık ekmek, a grilled mackerel sandwich, is even harder to find in London, and we think this may be the only version. It might not be as fresh as the just-caught version sold along the banks of the Bosphorus, and it could do with some chilli and lemon, but it’s good enough to sate our cravings. Everything else we’ve tried on the menu has been unspectacular yet generously portioned and ludicrously cheap; the £6 meze sampler works as a light meal for two people. Staff can be a bit grumpy, but the mood lighting creates a pleasant atmosphere and the pavement seating is excellent for people-watching.
