SquareMeal Review of
Del’Aziz offers an attractive ‘one stop shop’ approach to eating, drinking, browsing and discovering the flavours of the Middle East, the Maghreb and the Mediterranean. Navigate your way around the comestibles, grab a seat at one of the heavy wooden tables and pick from a menu that spans all possibilities from breakfast to dinner. New executive chef Mahrez Loukal is an Alain Ducasse alum, which is good news for the menu at this Clapham Common spot, while manager Ginger Zerbetto comes fresh from stints at Nobu, Buddha Bar and Novikov. The deli shelves, patisserie displays, giant meringues and café interiors look attractive, but there’s almost too much going on. Service falters at busy times and it’s hard to fathom where to begin, though you can’t go wrong with eggs Benedict early doors, a deli sandwich or a selection of hot and cold mezze. To drink, order a pot of Moroccan tea or something from the global wine list. Belly dancing and shisha pipes are exotic extras.
