London has no shortage of delicious dining hotspots, but the capital’s most exciting new restaurant opening is undoubtedly Hungarian eatery, bar and deli: Turul Project. Brace yourselves, this place is putting Hungarian food on the map.
Having started out as a pop-up and series of supper clubs back in 2018, Turul Project will launch its first ever permanent spot in a stunning 1930s Art Deco building originally attached to Turnpike Station in North London. The front of the space boasts not only a deli and cafe, packed full of top quality, ethically sourced Hungarian products, but also a dedicated wine bar, perfect for vino lovers. The wine bar, which opened in May, showcases an unrivalled selection of Hungarian white, red and dessert wines, as well as rosés and sparkling wines, many of which can’t be found elsewhere in the UK. Also, on offer is a unique collection of Hungarian delicacies, such as truffles, goose liver pâte, artisan honey, local charcuterie, oils and confectionery.
The restaurant promises a fine dining menu focusing on premium ingredients and inspired by traditional dishes, delivered with a contemporary twist. Launching on 9th June, the restaurant is led by award-winning Head Chef, 29-year-old Levente Koppány from Budapest, whose mouth-watering menu features dishes including monkfish “paprikas”, pasta, curd cheese and sour cream; goose liver, “Tokaji Aszù”, brioche, granny smith and cabbage; and hare.
A visit to Turul Project certainly won’t disappoint.
