Tasty Middle Eastern street food at Fafa’s in Covent Garden

Today it’s time for some delicious Middle Eastern Street food at Fafa’s. Perched on a corner in Covent Gardens Seven Dials area, it’s a stylish and buzzy little establishment with a constant stream of customers.

What’s on the menu

There’s a mix of freshly filled pitas, salads and mezze boxes with the fresh ingredients cooked and prepared on site. The mezze boxes are substantial and packed with a mix of delicacies to create a healthy and satisfying lunch.

Their base includes hummus, aubergine, broccoli, beets, cauliflower, matbucha, tabbouleh, pickles, tahini, almonds and chilli. How’s that for an exotic and delicious combo? We also opted to add extra shrimps to one and extra chicken to the other.
