Spinach and Cheese Gozleme | Gozleme House | £2.50

I absolutely love hole in the walls, especially ones that churn out buttery flatbreads stuffed with goodies i.e. gozlemes. You’ll spot Golzeme House by the women sitting by the window, working their magic on the gozlemes;  kneading away at the dough, stuffing them to the brim, and then slapping it onto the pan to fry.
