Square Meal Review of Yalla Yalla ?

A welcome find down a jazzy old passageway between Berwick Street & Brewer Street, natty-looking Yalla Yalla serves ‘Beirut street food’ from a counter laden with baked goods. As well as falafel, shawarma & spicy potato or sausage wraps, there are savoury manaee’sh pastries with spinach or wild thyme & sumac, plus cherry or fig tarts. Bag a rustic wooden table & share some ‘highly affordable’ mezze (£3.50-5.50 each), & ‘amazing, fresh & tasty’ mains such as charcoal-grilled minced lamb skewers (aka kafta meshoué) or marinated king prawns. Wines from the Bekaa Valley, including Château Kefraya, come in at around £4 a glass; otherwise, fruit juices (pomegranate, carrot, apple/mint/ginger) are available for refreshment. Be sure to book ahead or be prepared to wait, since it’s tiny & very popular.

    Munch My Way :: Yalla Yalla, Soho

    This little eatery between Brewer Tt and Peter Yt dishes up some pretty delicious Beirut street food right in the mix of the eclectic Soho. I love this place - that's why I have to return and tell you guys about them. There are 3 current branches: Oxford Circus, this one in Soho and pop-up on Shoreditch High street...

    edge and spoon :: Yalla Yalla

    After a bout of opulence that would make even Marie Antoinette blush, it was time to reign in the excess. So with heavy heart and empty stomach, I set off to Yalla Yalla with some sense of trepidation. Middle Eastern street food doesn’t fill me with the same pangs that, say, a steak sandwich might. It’s done the rounds already and, as usual, I’m behind: this Lebanese group are now onto their third branch and there seems to be no stopping them. But I’m here to be good. No flesh; no hooch. To prove that non-drinking vegetarians can have fun. Poor sods. This is grazing, fork-fight food. A place to go on a budget. Dishes come thick and fast...

    The Celeriac :: Yalla Yalla, Shoreditch Pop-Up

    Yalla Yalla serves Beirut Street Food. And it’s in Shoreditch. And it is indeed housed within what looked to me like a warehouse of some sort. There is also shisha, and a wine stall. I know, so far it sounds positively hideous but do bear with – it’ll turn out alright in the end. The menu is a condensed version of Yalla Yalla’s full grown restaurants, with a few mezze bits and bobs and main meaty dishes of what are essentially poshed up kebabs. There are also wraps and lemonade, which a positively delighted chap told us he had made himself. He really was pleased about this...

    The Swindian :: Restaurant review: Yalla Yalla

    I had some friends visiting and so we decided to take the free walking tour (a highly recommended activity for anybody, local or foreign). Once it was over, we felt peckish, and so we decided to go somewhere for a quick snack. But where? ‘I feel like Lebanese food!’, my friend exclaimed suddenly. And so I pulled out Google Maps, typed in ‘Lebanese’, and 15 minutes later we walked, or rather squeezed, into what looked like somebody’s living room, and smelled absolutely divine. Yalla Yalla has a small menu, but we wanted to order every single item...

    sexdrugsandbaconrolls :: Yalla Yalla

    his Lebanese restaurant is growing in fame not only because it is successfully opening pop-up subsidiaries in a number of areas in London but because Yalla Yalla is known for being cheap, good quality and one of those trendy restaurants that doesn’t take bookings. We were hungry but decided to make the most of Soho happy hour so did not get to the restaurant until well after 8pm, at this point we were in need of food. Unfortunately however this was peak time for Yalla Yalla and so there was a long queue and to make matters worse there was nowhere to wait inside so we had to stand outside on a very cold January evening in London Brrrr. If it hadn’t been so cold it wouldn’t have been too bad, I still like the trend of the non booking restaurants as it makes the evening relaxed and curbs my control freakery to an extent. My friends however kept bringing up the subject of moving somewhere else but I was stubbornly determined, which was also helped by the fact that we were being served drinks while we stood outside. It did get a little too cold however and I did ask numerous times on the wait, to which we were told 20 minutes when in fact we waited at least an hour possibly more. Had we been told this we probably won’t have waited and I am glad we did but I don’t like to be told a time and it is much longer; that is just annoying. To be fair on the waitresses they couldn’t really judge as there were only about ten tables so it is much harder to judge timings than if a bigger space. The waitresses were polite and understanding in our frustrations so this worked in its favour...
