On a balmy lunchtime London’s most popular food market will have you hyperventilating like you’re trying to find your shortest friend at the Pyramid Stage. But some of the baying crowd at Borough Market have got the right idea—particularly the ones inhaling kubba haleb and potato chap outside of Juma Kitchen. These deep-fried bites—formed from rice or potato patties and filled with aromatic baharat-spiced lamb mince—are the snack that’s made this Iraqi stall rightly popular. Other things, like the tender charcoal-grilled kebabs are enjoyable, but it’s handheld stuff that really stands out. Uroog (cauliflower and courgette fritters) are similarly excellent and, if you’re after a show, swing by London Bridge at 1pm on a Sunday. It’s when a gargantuan pot of dolma, an Iraqi family-style dish, is unveiled for all to enjoy.
