Mr Corbyn is a regular at Acoustic in Newington Green in his Islington North constituency.

And the Labour Party leader loves the Mediterranean joint so much that he took the time to open its second shop on Friday.

Owners Sefika Erdal and Adil Kolcak had been looking to open in Church Street for a year, and found the perfect spot on the junction with Defoe Road.

Adil said: “I like the area and the client profile is something we are targeting.

“We know in our Newington Green restaurant that customers come from this area, so we thought it was a good idea to come here.”

He said Acoustic’s food is “healthy and hearty” – and guaranteed good coverage from the Gazette by providing the best hummus its reporter has ever tasted.

Mr Corbyn, who cut the ribbon with Hackney North and Stoke Newington MP Diane Abbott, said: “I’m so full admiration for them opening this cafe. You’re going to be the centrepiece of Church Street.”

Ms Abbott said Acoustic will be her “go-to” – as it is for Mr Corbyn in Newington Green.
