London’s passion for reinventing foodstuffs is matched only by its passionate hatred for reinventing foodstuffs. Try serving fish and chips in any way other than the norm and you risk being lynched, but Le Bab, a modern kebab restaurant, is doing different kebabs that are well worth trying.

This is one of Soho’s best casual and cost-effective daytime options.
