|Mixed meze and garlic prawns|
Gone are the days, 10 years ago, when I originally moved to Brockley and you could drop in to Meze Mangal any time and they'd find you a table. Even on a Wednesday night they were packed and it was a good job that we'd booked as we had the last table in the expanded restaurant.
After some incredibly indecisive perusal of the menu we decided to go with the classics and it was the mixed meze (£16 for two) to start with. The prices may have gone up over the years, but it is still an enormously generous starter.
The mixed meze comes with a taster of (nearly) all the cold starters on the menu and you choice of a hot starter too. The humus, aubergines and acili ezme are always a favourites.
Over estimating our appetites we also ordered the vegetarian guvec (£10), a mix of aubergine, onions, mushrooms and garlic, topped with cheese and baked in the oven.
All of the pics were taken on my phone, explaining the somewhat dodgy quality.
