BabaBoom Islington | Angel Kebab Spot
All too often, they get skewered.
Well, thanks to places like BabaBoom, they’re turning things around, and restoring their reputation as a top-tier meal.
So the folks at this kebab shop have done the natural thing, and opened a second location. It’s sitting pretty on Upper Street in Angel Islington, and it’s got all the same first rate charcoal-grilled kebabs that made the Battersea original so damned crowd-pleasing. In fact, they’ve served over 75,000 of them since opening.
This new space is a sizeable 1500 sq ft, with a laid-back vibe, and a house-made playlist of chilled French/Turkish hip hop underpinning the mood. Menu-wise, they’ve kept the same focus as the debut, installing a charcoal grill over which they’re scorching 24hr marinaded slow roast mutton shoulder, saffron & orange chicken, beef brisket, cauliflower, crispy squid with dukah, sticky sumac wings and even some experimental numbers like Cabrito goat belly – and to drink? They’re bringing back the classic frozen margs, and adding an all-new special brew draught Baba’s Beer.
NOTE: BabaBoom Islington is open daily from 11.45am on weekdays and 10.30am on weekends, till late – you can find out more at their website HERE.
