Laksa specialists Sambal Shiok to take over
Blend Cafe Harringay for six-month winter residency
Mandy Yin and her team are bringing their signature laksa noodle soup to Harringay Green Lanes this winter. Blend will welcome them from Tuesday 25th October 2016 for six months. This residency follows on from Sambal Shiok’s sell-out runs at the Newman Arms, Salvation in Noodles Finsbury Park and The Sun & 13 Cantons Soho.
“I am excited to be coming back to North London, especially Green Lanes, as the first market to give me a chance was Harringay market when I started the business three years ago!”, says Mandy.
Linda Zubairi of blend says “We’ve been fans of Sambal Shiok ever since their Harringay market days and actually followed them around to their various locations. So we couldn’t be happier to be able to bring this gem back to Harringay. With their focus on excellent food and super nice team Sambal Shiok are the perfect fit for us at blend and will make a real difference to Green Lanes at night.”
Sambal Shiok will be serving dinners daily between 5.30-9.30pm Tuesdays to Saturdays. Closed on Sunday and Monday. Sambal Shiok will be closed from Saturday 24 December to Tuesday 3 January inclusive, reopening on Wednesday 4 January 2017
