Eat at:

Mystic Burek

227 Dartmouth Rd, London SE26 4QY

Mystic Burek was a lockdown baby, born from recipe books that were handed down to founder Spasia from her grandmother. The Balkan pop-up has now found a forever home in Sydenham, and in addition to its divinely flaky, cheesy filo pies and indulgent sour cherry baklava buns, you’ll find bold, retro interiors—complete with red check tablecloths, framed family photos and pastel pink touches—that will make a fun background for any envy-inducing snaps.

Drink in

161 Food+Drink

161 Kirkdale, London SE26 4QJ

Just around the corner from Mystic Burek, you’ll find 161 Food+Drink, which is a natural wine bar and shop that serves up tasty seasonal small plates too. This relaxed spot is a lovely place to unwind, sip and maybe even learn a thing or two about the intriguing world of natural wines. You could even buy a bottle to take to Mystic Burek to accompany your pie!

dealchecker Tip: Keep an eye on their socials for special supper clubs, takeovers and tastings.
