Absolutely Bab-ulous, dahhhhling! 💁🏼♀️ (Invite)
Sometimes you walk into a restaurant and you just know that the food is going to be great before you’ve even had a taste 🙌🏼 Introducing my new favourite spot in Covent Garden: @maisonbab 💕 From the team behind @eatlebab, these guys are just brilliant. They’re all about bold flavours and fresh, seasonal ingredients. The decor is swish and the food is bloody great 😍
The vegan range isn’t huge, but it doesn’t need to be, because the dishes they do offer have been perfected 👌🏼 I took myself down there for a little solo lunch date and I tucked into:
🌱 Babaganoush Alyabania – smoked aubergine purée with white miso & white balsamic – Absolutely dreamy dish. That baba was so moreish 🤤 .
🥦 Charred tenderstem broccoli smothered in an almond & hazelnut Iskender sauce. WOW. What a dish! The broc was cooked perfectly but THE SAUCE 😱 It absolutely made this dish. Bursting with tangy tomato flavours, a little crunch from the nuts and packing a little bit o’ heat, it almost resembles a bolognese sauce .
🍔 Vada Pav – A traditional Mumbai sandwich: Deep fried masala potato cake, topped with mango chutney, coconut yoghurt, chilli & coriander. Despite looking smallish for a burg, the fluffy potato patty makes it substantial! There’s a mild heat, a little bit of sweetness, a satisfying crunch and it’s not dry at all. Purely because I’m obsessed with that sauce, I added some into the burg too and it was obvs delightful 😍
🍟 Double cooked fries with the housemade Iskender sauce – Light, fluffy fries with that divine sauce 🔥
The star of the show here is that Iskander sauce. It is phenomenal. I want a permanent supply. The service, the food, the decor, everything about this place is top notch. I’d planned to leave with a doggy bag but ended up scoffing the lot and rolling home. I highly recommend that you get down here! 😍♥️ .
The lovely team were kind enough to invite me and gave me this food on a complimentary basis. No payment was received and all opinions, as always, are honest and my own.
