Hot weather calls for Mediterranean food, right? So as temperatures soared over the last week, I had Lebanese food at Yalla Yalla, which happened to come with a side of AC cold air. Nice.
Yalla Yalla serves Beirut street food from their two restaurants in Soho, but they have opened up a food truck near the O2 in Greenwich as well.We went to the one near Oxford Street, which wasn't all that packed. Maybe it is because it is set away from the main shopping drag. I walked into the soothing cool air of the restaurant where we had a table by the window.
The best bit was the grilled haloumi cheese dish. Oh, how I love the squeeky cheese. We added some battata harra which is a spicy dish of potato and chilli peppers. And last but not least, we had a dish of hummus, a must have dish when eating Lebanese food.
We probably could've done with 1 less dish, but all wrapped up in a doggy bag, it made for a good lunch option the next day. I loved loved loved Yalla Yalla and when you're looking for an authentic Lebanese eatery, I'd make sure to check them out.
