It’s been three years since I moved to London, holed up in a tiny Islington flat and trudging the five miles to work to try and scrape enough pennies to spend at the pub every weekend. Upper Street used to be my escape - a bit like browsing in Waitrose while shopping on an Aldi budget. Several years…
BabaBoom has found a second home in Islington. Following its first restaurant in Battersea, kebab experts BabaBoom have set up shop in Islington. Located in the foodie haven of Upper Street, this location will have the same features as its predecessor; with an open-plan kitchen, lively music and a Middle Eastern-inspired menu. However, north London locals can expect a much larger space.
Fans of the original menu will be happy to see the same signature dishes, with highlights including sticky sumac wings with date molasses and lime alongside meaty and vegetarian kebabs; from the smokey beef brisket with chilli and cheese kofta, to the lighter broadbean falafel with homemade sweet potato hummus. All to be washed down with wine, cocktails, or Bababoom's own house beer on tap.
