Popular Vietnamese joint Salvation in Noodles’ second site features a similar menu to the Dalston joint only with some additional dishes to boot. But you gotta go for the crispy Phu Quoc chicken wings coated in a sticky fish sauce, the tasty Vietnamese dumplings, a HUGE bowl of spicy and sour Bun Bo Hue and our fave dish, the Bun Nem Nuong with soft pork patties. For a fast, fresh and tasty dinner Salvation in Noodles is always a winner.

Finsbury Park | London On The Inside

Some parts of Finsbury Park can be pretty bleak looking, so why not get a breath of fresh air and take a stroll around the park that gives the area its name. It’s really quite big, (110 acres in fact) which is what makes it such a popular venue for several of the city’s festivals, including Wireless and Hospitality in the Park. Not a fan? Well there are loads of other things to do, including a boating lake, bowling green and unusually, baseball and American football fields. Go figure…

Is it an Irish pub filled with knick knacks and rugby memorabilia? Is it a floral paradise? Is it both? We will let you check it out yourself and decide. Making the most of the small outside space, the team behind the Faltering Fullback have transformed the beer garden into a multi-level jungle, completely taken over (especially in the summer) by plants. Obviously you are going to go for the selfies, but what about the food and drink? Well luckily their eating and drinking game is just as good as their mad gardening skillz: they serve up a good selection of your usual suspects from behind the bar and good quality Thai food from the kitchen.

It’s not hard to put two and two together and work out that back in the day, this pub was originally used as a creamery. However, from the white stuff to the hard stuff, this great little pub serves up at least 5 cask ales and an exhaustive list of wines. Obviously you’ll need something to mop up all that alcohol, so it’s a good job they also serve a refined menu of pub-grub classics. What are you waiting for? Get a moo-ve on and get down to The Old Dairy.

Clissold Park is home a huge variety of animals – in fact they’ve kept animals in the park for over 100 years! On your walk round you can see deer, exotic birds, goats and chickens, all for free. If that’s not enough to keep you occupied, there are also ponds, tennis courts and paddling pools to name but a few of the attractions. It may not be one of the best known parks in the area, but it’s certainly the most interesting.

This 4.5 mile stretch between Finsbury Park and Alexandra Palace is a local nature reserve and passes through some of the greenest areas in London. It follows the route of an old railway line, which is mostly demolished save for a few parts that can be seen through the trees. Now overgrown with plant life, the walk is great way to spend an afternoon!

Tesco Express this is not. Harringay Local Store is a proper good shop that sells a selection of locally sourced, organic and fair trade products. Bread, beer, meat, veg, vegan food… you name it, they’ve got it. Oh, and they also have a old and vintage vinyl records corner. Because why not.

Just cos you’re out late at night doesn’t mean you have to be sat in some dingy bar or sleazy club. No, you could be out polishing your balls and hitting the lanes at Rowan’s Bowling. The old school 10 pin bowling alley is open till 2.30am with balls galore, karaoke and DJ’s.

This sandwich shop, run by two off duty chefs, is serving just two hot sandwiches daily – and for about £6. They pay particular attention to the quality and sustainability of their food, as well as flavour. The smoky beef shin bun with house-made kimchi, chilli and Ogleshield cheese is drool worthy.
