A welcome find down a jazzy old passageway between Berwick Street and Brewer Street, natty-looking Yalla Yalla serves ‘Beirut street food’ from a counter laden with baked goods. As well as falafel, shawarma and spicy potato or sausage wraps, there are savoury manaee’sh pastries with spinach or wild thyme and sumac, plus cherry or fig tarts. Bag a rustic wooden table and share some ‘highly affordable’ mezze, and ‘amazing, fresh and 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 £5 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 and very popular.
