Duke of Cambridge
An all-organic gastropub, Duke of Cambridge is a well-recognised restaurant in Islington. It is the only restaurant to be certified by the Soil Association. With high ceilings and exposed brick walls, the restaurant has a charming look and feel to it.
With expensive eateries in this part of London, Afghan Kitchen is quite a let-up. The place is pretty simple and the menu very straightforward. It consists of eight dishes (four vegetarian and four non-vegetarian items). The focus is stews with abundant yoghurt and mint. All the dishes look wonderful and colourful. The best way to experience Afghan Kitchen is to go early with a few friends and enjoy everything in small quantities.
Kipferl offers delicious and authentic Austrian cuisine. The restaurant serves an impressive selection of sausages and a delectable range of Viennese desserts like apfelstrudel and sachertorte. Other items include smoked trout on toasted rye bread with cranberry horseradish, spinach dumplings and beef goulash and also the traditional wiener schnitzel (veal). The place also sells imported delicacies like Zotter chocolates and Austrian wines.
