Cuisine: Beirut Street Food
Swank Levels: 3/5
Yalla Yalla is a bustling, colourful and inviting restaurant. The counter is laid out with a fresh assortment of the treats available including baklava, kebabs, wraps and pastries as well as contraptions churning up fresh fruit juices in full view.
Although it is small and it is likely that you will have to queue for a seat if you don’t book, Yalla Yalla exudes a relaxed, unperturbed aura where the focus is simple good food. In fact the cosy size of the restaurant adds to this sense of welcoming communal eating. There is also a second, larger restaurant in Winsley Steet.
Would I Want Seconds?
Yes. The focus of the menu is street food and they offer a variety of fresh wraps and light mezze. However they also have Lebanese main course dishes which is some of the best Lebanese food I have tasted in London. It is evident from the taste that all the ingredients are fresh and dishes are made on order as each dish oozes big flavour.
