Bubala – Spitalfields

Deck the halls with plates a plenty, buba-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la 🔔🎄⁣ {gifted}


Just before leaving for Christmas, @thebigjolleyvegan & I popped into @bubala_london to check out their menu 👀 Small plates, natural ingredients used cleverly, punchy, bold flavours, they definitely know the way to my heart ♥️⁣

Here’s what we ate:⁣

🌱Fried aubergine, zhoug, date syrup⁣

🏆Fave dish⁣

🌱Falafel, tahini⁣
💰£5.50⁣
💭 Really lovely flavours! The falafel is moist and delicious, tastes curried! The pickle cuts through and adds a tang. Tahini adds moisture. Parsley flavour stands out too⁣
❓Order again? Yes⁣

🌱Romanesco cauliflower, smoked tomato, Ras el hanout popped freekeh⁣
💰£11⁣
💭 Cooked well with a nice bite to it but I think the sauce needed a stronger flavour. A little oily for me. Loved the popped freekeh!⁣
❓Order again? No⁣

🌱Grilled cabbage, pomegranate, tahini, hazelnut⁣
💰£9⁣
💭 Absolutely loved the charred cabbage flavour but the hazelnuts are the real star of the show, and the taste you’re left with. Cabbage was slightly tough⁣
❓Order again? Yes⁣

💰£2.50 / skewer⁣
💭 Proper juicy, meaty shrooms smothered in salty, smoky BBQ flavours. Beautiful!⁣
