food - ole pera finsbury park london

One of my favourite restaurants in London, Ole Pera not only serves you delicious Mediterranean cuisine, they are also a great choice for those on a budget.

I was first introduced to Ole Pera by my first ‘London’ friend and roomie, Ellie, and I have literally been coming back ever since. One of their best menu offers is their two courses for £9.95. With a set menu of delicious Mediterranean dishes to choose from, you are literally spoilt for choice!

food - ole pera, finsbury park - starter bread, olives and spicy sauce

Aside from their friendly service, they also provide a free bread basket with green and black olives and a spicy sauce for you to snack on whilst you ponder the menu. One starter that I always order is the hummus. That alongside the olives, makes for an amazing combination.

food - ole pera, finsbury park - lamb shish

For the main, one dish I couldn’t recommend more is the chicken shish. Slightly blackened for a smoky effect, the chicken cubes are still moist and comes with a tangy salsa, tortilla wrap and a portion of dome sized sticky rice. Other options you can choose from on the set menu are the lamb shish or if you’re a vegetarian, the musakka.

Within easy reach of Finsbury Park station, Ole Pera is the perfect post-work spot. Not only will you get brilliant and attentive service, but their wholesome food is great for those watching their pennies and you don’t have to worry about leaving on an empty stomach!

Ole Pera is located at 145 Stroud Green Road, London, N4 3PZ.

FOOD – monty’s nepalese, northfields london

Established since 1980, Monty’s Nepalese Cuisine is an Indian and Nepalese restaurant with branches in Northfields, Kingston and Ealing. 

Lovers of curry and wanting to try sometime a bit different, me and Ali visited the Northfields restaurant.

When we arrived it was a very busy night, and despite not making a reservation, the waiters were very nice and quickly got us a table. After browsing the menu and ordering a couple of soft drinks, we decided that for starters we would have poppadums with a pickle and chutney tray – always a classic.

food - montys nepalese, northfields - Chicken Dilkhoosh

 After filling us up quite nicely, our main courses came. Ali ordered a lamb madras with boiled rice for £7.60, whereas I went for the chicken dilkhoosh, (chicken breasts covered in a thick creamy sauce with rice and mushrooms), which was £11.90. My dish was absolutely delicious! I love creamy dishes, and this one didn’t disappoint! It was mild and sweet and the rice was just the right portion without being too over-filling.

We would definitely visit Monty’s again. I would say it is fairly cheap considering it’s in London and next time I’ll be sure to try more of the Nepalese dishes!

Monty’s Nepalese is located at 54 Northfield Avenue, London, W13 9RR, with branches in Kingston and Ealing as well.
