Meze Mangal's oval Turkish bread boats are a joy; they're freshly baked, generously sized and almost all are under £8.
My pide was golden from the wood-fired oven and so wide, it had to be sliced and stacked to fit a conventional plate.
The fluffy egg baked onto the base was delicious, and the perfect backdrop to pockets of spicy beef sausage, mushrooms and cheese. The simple and herby salad accompanying it balanced out the meal nicely.
Meze Mangal has a take away menu, and plenty of the main courses on it fall under £8, such as grilled lamb ribs with salad (£7), and spicy minced lamb and chicken seasoned with garlic, parsley and yoghurt (£7.50).
Getting your pide to go starts from just £5.50; the one mentioned would have been £6.50.
