We love our butcher, Meat N16, and their original flagship shop. The company is the brainchild of two Stoke Newington friends and residents who pondered a number of joint business ventures before deciding what their local area really needed was a good butchers shop. They opened in the summer of 2011 and were very quickly welcomed and embraced by the local community. It was always part of their plan, and company ethos, that the shops would be part of the community. They’ve strived to ensure that Meat N16 holds its position as a traditional British butcher’s, with a modern feel. The shop is small. There is no serve over counter. The customers get close to the Butchers and watch their meat being cut and prepared as they chat and pass the time of day. This is the way that we want to engage with our butcher as well, as meat and its provenance is so important to us. We work very closely with the team at Meat N16 on new products, cuts of meat & our supply chain, to ensure that we offer the very best meat to our customers. Tried our famous souvlaki? This is where the lamb comes from!
In 1991 Panos Manuelides embarked on bringing the delights of the Greek cuisine to the UK. He started out by selling premium Greek olives from a stall on Portobello Road, as it grew in popularity it soon became clear to Panos that there was a gap in the market for high quality authentic Greek products, and so Odysea was born.
They are our first choice and point of reference for Greek products, and we choose to work with them because of their vast knowledge of Greek cuisine, its traditions & producers. They provide products of the highest quality, and their team are constantly searching the length and breadth of Greece in search of the finest local producers. A large number of the products they supply us with have also been awarded PDO status, which acts as an assurance that we are buying genuine, quality products.
