SquareMeal Review of Yalla Yalla - Winsley Street

Having taken Soho by storm, Yalla Yalla is now peddling its funky Beirut street food to the frenetic hordes of tourists & shoppers mingling around Oxford Circus. The new hangout is less claustrophobic than the pint-sized Green Court original, with big open spaces, rustic benches and heavy wood tables lit by dangling tubular lamps.

By contrast, the menu is much as before, with a  host of mezze topping the bill for value, nourishment & authenticity: fattoush, tabbouleh and falafel share the limelight with batata harra (spicy potatoes with red pepper, coriander & chilli) or sawda djej (sautéed chicken livers with garlic & pomegranate molasses). There are also a few larger platefuls for those who want to pig out – anything from veggie moussaka to char-grilled chicken shawarma with pickles, sumac onion salad & vermicelli rice. Meanwhile, flatbreads & wraps are the stars in the takeaway stakes.

The place was buzzing when we stopped for lunch, though service was quick. We punted for 4 mezze dishes for two of us; each costing £4-5. Good choice for veggies. Dishes were a nice size and 4 was plenty. I sampled the falafel, spinach fatayer and vine leaves. The chunky, spicy falafel and refreshingly lemony vine leaves made for a tasty meal, but the spinach fatayer was dry and weirdly sweet. Without houmous or baba ganoush, it was all a little too dry, which resulted in us guzzling some nice lemonades from their selection.

Great food and good value for money. The take-away wraps are perfect for lunch too!
