Le Bab; ££ (Two mains with a starter, side and two drinks. £22 p/p inc. service)
Tucked away in Kingly Court, Le bab is redoing your previous perceptions of your Friday night kebab. To say that they are an upgrade from your local kebaby would be an understatement. Everything is made in-house, favouring locally sourced, seasonal and organic produce – you’ve got our attention boys.
We started with the broad bean hummus flavoured with star anise and topped with a Levantine nut dressing – YUM. That went down a treat, who doesn’t love a bowl of creamy, deliciousness mopped up with homemade flat breads.
Which we swiftly followed by the Le Bab falafel kebab (the falafel reminded us of those served at Honey and Co. on Warren Street). Crunchy falafel on a bed of hummus and topped with lashings of toum and baby salad leaves.
The real winners here are the homemade breads and sauces. From toum (Levantine yoghurt and garlic sauce) to flatbreads and hummus – these guys seriously know what they are doing!
House special: paneer kebab
The only let down in terms of food was the beetroot salad. If they had a fattoush salad on the menu they would have instantly won my heart!
Value for money: 4/5
