SquareMeal Review of Yalla Yalla

Beirut street food specialists Yalla Yalla have brought their colourful offer to Shoreditch for a six-month pop-up residency. The new outlet comprises an informal canopied space crammed with the now-familiar mix of cushioned low-level berths, tables and stools, all backed by a soundtrack of Lebanese lounge music and live thrills from belly dancers and DJs at the weekend. Expect a host of great-value mezze to share, from kibbé lahme (deep-fried lamb and cracked wheat parcels) to falafel with tahini and garlicky yoghurt sauce, as well as shawarma grills, flatbreads, wraps and an array of pastries to eat in or takeaway. Drinks-wise, Lebanese beers and wines share the billing with enticing cocktails, juices and a full contingent of fruity flavoured shisha. A lunchtime bicycle delivery service should satisfy desk-bound Shoreditch workers and local residents.
