Selale

One of the best Turkish Restaurants in North London. Always busy, especially on weekends when you have to reserve seats to avoid standing outside. Amazing customer service, great food and a reasonable price for the standard. You should try the lamb and chicken grill.

The best place for cheap fruit and veg on Green Lanes.

I often visit this butchers if I'm having guests over for dinner. The quality of their meat is excellent and they're clearly very knowledgeable about what they do.

Banner's

If you ever find yourself very hungry, head on down to Banner's because the portions are huge! It's definitely very good value for money and the menu is so extensive, there's something for everyone.

Balkan and Middle Eastern street foods combined, I love popping in for a quick and cheap lunch. They make traditional pastry bourekas that are so delicious and morish, I can't get enough!

"Seven Sisters Road was named after the seven daughters of Robert the Bruce, who planted seven elm trees along this route."

There's a peaceful spot along the New River, which winds unassumingly through the residential streets to Finsbury Park.

Daniel Burrell

The Mackenzie Garden in Finsbury Park is a peaceful spot that I like to visit when I have the time.

Vikki Broad

In the centre of Crouch End is its Clock Tower, erected in memorial to local councillor Henry Reader Williams.
