SquareMeal Review of Bababoom Battersea

Bronze Award

Landing with a bang on Battersea Rise, little Bababoom punches well above its weight. A modern Middle Eastern menu features meat cooked to blackened perfection on the mangal grill – with broad bean falafels and Greek Mastelo cheese for the veggies – supported by colourful salads and flame-licked flatbreads. We kicked off with creamy hummus and tangy rose harissa labneh, ahead of saffron and orange chicken shish kebab (moist and moreish) and rotisserie lamb shoulder – richly marinated and the perfect match for a side of smoky smashed aubergine dotted with pomegranate seeds. 'Is it just posh kebabs?' mused a fellow diner. Well yes, but we really aren't complaining when they taste this good. To finish, grilled peach Melba with melted marshmallows is tough to resist; with craft brews from We Brought Beer, decent wines and cheeky frozen Margaritas. Cheerful staff keep service zipping along in the buzzy room, which also hosts midnight feasts after 11pm or breezy weekend brunch, with the likes of harissa scrambled eggs.
