abu zaad

29 Mar

Ollie’s mum arrived in town tonight but alas Ollie had a prior engagement with Paul McCartney at the Royal Albert Hall (I’m sure we will hear more about this).

The only way George and I could rival a night with that weirdly youthful Beatle was to take Ollie’s mum to Abu Zaad – one of our favourite neighborhood restaurants (which we recommended here). This is one of only a clutch of Syrian restaurants in London and we are very lucky to have it as one of our locals.

As has become something of a routine, we went crazy on the starters (three for six pounds), realised we’d completely over ordered when the colossal mains arrived, and nearly keeled over when our waiter offered us piles of baklava as a parting gift.

“You don’t get this in North Devon!”
