Street food of the week: Laffa

Ashleigh Arnott

So, what are we eating?
Aubergine and halloumi flatbread wrap with chopped salad, yoghurt and herb dressing and chilli sauce. £6.

I'm not a vegetarian...
This bundle of joy is plenty tasty without the meat, but if you really can't handle the lack of animal there's also lemon and za'atar chicken on offer.

I can do vegetables as long as there's plenty of flavour in there.
Then Laffa will not let you down. The fillings are marinated, grilled while you wait, then packed into a warm flatbread alongside fresh salad and punchy sauces – the chilli is a winning mix of harissa and tomatoes (and not too fiery).

Who's doing the cooking?
Gabriel and Ben, who met when they were studying architecture. Ben went on to train as a chef and has worked at Terroirs and Quo Vadis and Gabriel started his own consultancy. Now they've chucked it all in to sell Middle Eastern food on the street.

Bold move.
If they keep turning out tasty wraps like these ones they'll be just fine.

Where can I get it?
At Street Food Union on Rupert Street on Thursday, Friday and Saturday lunchtimes.
