I'm fascinated by the naan bread shop that's opened on Blackstock Road. Has anyone been? They appear to sell nothing but naan bread.
Yes.. Have been there.. Very tasty naan. Garlic and plain- its great.
I bet they said that about Starbucks when it first opened. "It only sells coffee - it'll never last"
It's excellent warm bread, goes very well with stews and tagines!
@andy imagine that, a naan bread shop on every corner in London. The mind boggles.... :-)
I went in and asked if they did a Peshwari Naan - the one with almonds - guy looked at me as if I was insane.Couldn't be bothered to ask if they had a keema naan and left somewhat baffled by why my request was so unreasonable.
Been there for ages hasn't it?
Has it? I must cycle around in a daze.
Only opened a few months ago I thought
I think it has been open at least a year....
It has been open since at least last July. I live around the corner.
Yeah the naans there are tasty. I wonder if they specalise in wholesale?
They are lovely, I think I posted on here about it last summer so there must be another thread somewhere. A quick easy meal is some of the breads from that shop, a freshly roasted chicken and some avocados, olives, salad and couscous from the Algerian butchers/deli on Blackstock rd. I work some Saturdays in Stokey and often pick this up on the way home and they are still nice and warm by the time I've cycled back. I went in once and got 4 but only had a £20 note and the man let me off with the £1. I tried to give it to him next time I went but he wouldn't let me pay, and now when I go in he always seems to give me 5 instead of 4!
I've only been there once - they had loads of nans sitting there on the counter but made two fresh ones for me. Very friendly chaps. I do wonder whether they make any money though. Perhaps it's a front for something.
What, like the Tiller Girls, you mean?
And I always thought it was spelled Tilla ... but, apparently not, being named after John Tiller.
