again, an office lunch party; we went to gallipoli in islington.
we ordered everything on the menu; the mezze were startlingly awful. awful not in comparison to whats available in turkey, but awful all by themselves. even the vegetables were old and without flavour.
the turkish girl who brought us here thought it was pretyy bad too, but thought we 'might enjoy the ambiance'. she also said that this was the better gallipoli (the more eastern one. apparently, there are two of these horrors).
folks, knightsbridge and its environs is still THE only place around to get good middle eastern.
