CLAPTON | E5
Dom's Place serves very good Turkish wraps in a proper sit-down restaurant from £6, or just £5 if you get there for lunch between 12pm - 3pm Monday - Friday.
Wraps are customisable with a choice of three fresh salad fillings: sumakli with red onion, parsley, sumac and pomegranate vinegar; biri biri with red cabbage and rocket; and coban with tomato, cucumber, parsley and green peppers. You can choose how you want your fillings wrapped too - in thick or thin stone-baked flatbread.
The lamb kofte wrap was generously sized, barely fitting onto its plate. Served with yogurt and a spicy tomato sauce on the side, the meat was beautifully smokey from the charcoal treatment, and the flatbread was light and golden.
As the grilled meat at Dom's Place isn't at all greasy, the wrap will remain structurally intact during your whole meal - a big plus if you intend to eat it gracefully on the go.
Other options below our magic £8 mark include chicken, whitebait, a chip wrap (yep!), falafel with humus, halloumi with humus, halloumi with peppers, and the veggie special with charcoal grilled aubergines, mixed peppers, garlic, onions, tomato and halloumi.
If you have some extra change, you can get any of the above options on a plate with rice or fries from £9.
Expect friendly service, plenty of proper seating (you can even make a reservation), and the option to take away. This is also a halal restaurant.
