Is the ‘best kebab house in the world’ coming to Covent Garden?

Tom Howells

Er, possibly. We’re big fans of mash-up Middle Eastern/Asian kebab joint Le Bab here at Time Out – so of course we were thrilled to hear that the folks behind it, Stephen Tozer and Ed Brunet, are opening a new spot in Covent Garden this spring, dubbed Maison Bab. Not only that, they’re aiming to make it ‘one of the best kebab houses in the world’ – an extremely ambitious remit given the competition in London alone.

Gotta give ’em points for enthusiasm, though. The new pad is being headed up by Le Bab head chef Manu Canales Garces (who used to work at Michel Roux Jr’s two-Michelin-starred Le Gavroche) and will, says Tozer, be dishing up ‘something punchier, bolder, and more surprising’ than the fare at Le Bab. By which he means sourdough flatbreads topped with things like onglet steak and peppercorn mayo, or slow-grilled celeriac shish with carrot purée. Fancy!

Maison Bab will be located at Mercers Walk, Covent Garden, and is due to open this spring.

Maison Bab’s babs will all cost £10 or under. Here are some more sweet cheap eats around Covent Garden.
