Ziloufs restaurant is a unique combination of cocktail bar and gastro den in north London’s Islington. The chefs serve up a delightful mix of Asian-fusion and pan-Asian cuisine with menus that change regularly with the seasons; locals and visitors alike have ensured Ziloufs has acquired a cult following since its 2008 opening. Head bartender Benjamin Purslow, who trained under Nopi's Niall Downey, keeps the cocktail list fresh with an ever-changing list of homemade ingredients and exotic spirits. A vibrant crowd also come for the retro furnishings and homemade curios: check out the fish tank in a TV. Now open to the elements, the bar is a great place to chill in summer whilst working up an appetite for dinner. Super Sunday roasts and flat whites, along with a range of books and newspapers to browse through, make an excellent way to spend a lazy Sunday. We love the seared tuna with miso-marinated aubergine, black bean and pickled ginger.
