Etles Uyghur, Walthamstow and Finchley

One of Etles’ staple dishes is the tugur – steamed lamb dumplings with peppers and onions. They also do a larger version known as the manta but we prefer the tugur as they’re smaller and bitesize meaning you can eat plenty more. These go great with a side of cumin lamb skewers and the samsa (samosa). 

Halal Status: All meats served here are halal. No pork or alcohol present.
Address: Walthamstow: 235 Hoe St, London E17 9PP | Finchley: 424 Finchley Rd, London NW2 2HY

Ariana II, Kilburn

Mantu is a popular Afghan dumpling that can be found across many Afghan restaurant menus across the country. Think round dumplings stuffed with either seasoned beef or lamb mince and finished off with a herby yoghurt and a tomato-based sauce with kidney beans or split peas. The family-run Ariana II is your best bet to access some good Afghan mantu but beware, the portion size is extremely generous.
