A semi-permanent pop up from the Lebanese street food mini-chain, this Shoreditch High Street location follows up on the success of the group's central London venues - in Soho and just off Oxford Street.
A selection of mezze - served with pitta and complimentary olives and pickles - features alongside nine mains including moussaka, chicken shawarma and a mixed grill. Desserts include backlawa, Arabic sweets and mohalabiya - a fragrant milk pudding from Damascus, served with pomegranate seeds and syrup.

So this branch of Yalla Yalla has closed down and relocated as a pop up in North Greenwich - right by the 02. My hairdresser, who is as chow-obsessed as I am recommended it to me, and after doing the Emirates AirLine - I checked out this new branch, because I can't ever say no to hummus! The place is easy to spot in bold bee colours, and there was a decent sized indoor seating bit, as well as a few tables outside. Service was rapid, which is good if you're feeling borderline hangry - there was no queue when I went - 8pmish, midweek. The menu for this branch isn't available on Yalla Yalla's website, but you have a reduced version of the other two sites, essentially. There's a couple of mains, some mezze options - I had the hummus and it's really, really good. I had a chicken wrap, and hallumi wrap - the hallumi was easily the better option - and I actually had the last one, so I think plenty of other people must agree. They were reasonably priced, fresh and tasty. I also picked up some baklava for the way home - they didnt make it back to basecamp. Again, really good - sticky and sweet, just what you want. Really decent place - good food and you don't have to cry when you hand over your pennies.
