AMBIENCE:

Approaching the restaurant alone was an experience as there was this narrow entrance that opened up into a beautiful atrium space with chairs x tables around.

We sighted the restaurant from a distance and made our way towards it. The interior was quite simple with wood finishings and the hint of green x pink furniture.

SALMAH’S SIDENOTE:

Fun menu with a range of options to choose from! Reminded me of this Turkish place I once had breakfast in in Edinburgh. Mediterranean breakfast meals are definitely one of my most recommended!

REVIEW OF FOOD:

Fluffy pita – £4

(warm + lightly charred w/ za’atar + olive oil)

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

Again, can’t go wrong with pita bread. Never. Soft and tasted really good.

Pumpkin Hummus – £5

(za’atar-roasted squash w/ cayenne + coriander, topped w/ toasted pumpkin seed + chilli relish)

I’ve been so open to trying various types of hummus lately and luckily I haven’t been disappointed yet. Who knew pumpkin hummus would be one of the best things I’ve ever tasted?

Merguez Sausage – £5

(smoky, aromatic lamb + beef sausages served w/ tangy preserved lemon yoghurt + sumac)

Definitely can’t go into a middle eastern restaurant and not try the sausage dish. We went straight for it and it banged so hard!

Goat Shawarma Hash – £12.50

(crispy potato, sweet roasted peppers, fried egg, pickles, filfel chuma mayo + our slow-cooked, fall-apart tender goat shawarma)

I was waay too excited to try this dish. I was mostly triggered by the ‘shawarma’ bit cause it meant well seasoned x marinated meat would be involved! It was a really nice dish as there was a nice play in texture between the egg, meat and potatoes, but most importantly the flavours were good!

Salt Beef Reuben – £12

(New York-style heritage brisket w/ melted smoked cheddar, fresh dill, crispy onions, kraut, Russian dressing + pickles, sandwiched in our house pretzel challah)

This had amazing flavours bursting out of it, however we wished the bun was bigger as it got messy real quick.
