London favourite Rüyam Turkish are undoubtedly up there with the best restaurants in town. Their Commercial Road space in Whitechapel is a local favourite and the team have got the foodie scene buzzing with their extensive menu, and impeccable service. With their menu being so enticing, we’ve discovered the best thing to do is to pay Rüyam Turkish a visit with a group, and opt to share several dishes so you can indulge in multiple dishes and delight those taste buds well and truly.
Start your Rüyam Turkish rendezvous with the mixed mezze of hummus, tabbouleh, caci, rus salatasi and patlican ezme, which is a combination of several starters, and an excellent way to get amongst dishes you perhaps haven’t tried before. Following that, we have a soft spot for pide, which is a Turkish pizza topped with a range of fillings like minced lamb, or garlic sausage and cheese. The team at this London delight also have a range of vegetarian dishes so no matter your dietary preference, you’ll be well-catered for. Located on Commercial Road, this Whitechapel institution simply needs to be sampled, so go forth, feast and enjoy!
