Here’s a likely conversation: ‘where should we meet?’ ‘I dunno. Central?’. Oh yes. Fitzrovia is to friendships what Clapham Junction is to trains. All pals are going to pass through there at some point, and when you do, you should head to Yalla Yalla. This Beirut spot has a long, long menu full of classics like lamb kibbeh, moussaka, and tahini. But, where this place really comes into its own is sharing, with everything from their mezze feast set menu to their shawarma platters, to their cosy interiors, make it prime casual catch up material. Head for a big table, invite everyone you like (hell, invite that smart ass you’d rather not, it means you can get an extra portion of the lamb skewers) and see just how much Beirut sangria you can get through on a school night.
