Restaurant Levante, down Lewisham’s Lewis Grove, brings south London a a whole universe of Turkish food. Expert chefs combine seasonal ingredients from local suppliers to serve beautifully presented dishes in a likeable atmosphere. Besides classic Turkish food we’re all familiar with – kebabs, skewers or pide with different toppings – the menu also offers vegetarian alternatives. If you face the craving for something sweet after your hearty grilled meats and vegetables, different puddings or ice cream will sate the most insatiable of appetites.
Proving the peerless diversity at work in Turkish cuisine, Lewisham’s Levante goes further than most Turkish restaurants. Aside from the well-known kebab, this south London restaurant down Lewis Grove confronts you with a rich menu consisting of food from all over Turkey and old Anatolia as well as dishes exhibiting a strong Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influence. Start your meal with puréed chickpea hummus or different kinds of marinated dishes such as mushrooms, wine leaves or fresh beans. If the menu overwhelms you, you can pick a mixed platter and sample a variety of Levante’s strongest options.
If you’re a friend of meat, Levante’s charcoal grill is your new bestie, with the cooks at this south London gaff ready with the skewers and the flame-tempered skill it takes to delight Turkish food fans with the menu’s many meat-based dishes. Make your choice between marinated pieces of lamb from a skewer, tasty chicken wings or minced meat from the grill. If you are not a grill-type, there are also baked lamb or chicken dishes served with delicious sides. No meat at all? No problem at all! Just order a vegetarian dish such as fried vegetables or aubergines with feta cheese.
