Baba Restaurant – Edinburgh

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to be invited by the lovely Kylie from Edinburgh Gossip Girls to try a new restaurant in George St.

Baba restaurant opened the 15th of November and the magnificent food they offer is inspired by the flavours of the Eastern Mediterranean cuisine.

Can I first start by saying that when it comes to food I’m extremely picky… I like fresh, simple flavours and I’ve never been really keen of spices, etc . This restaurant opened my eyes and I can honestly say I experience one of the best meals I’ve ever had.

At our arrival we were welcomed by one of the owners who offered us a lovely cocktail at the bar area. The decor is gorgeous, I loved the dark, warm colour and the quirky bar decor.

We then got sat at the table and were presented with a cocktail menu to die for. The choice of peculiar drinks was amazing; check out the ingredients!

I opted for a non alcoholic drink (I know right!) and it just blew me away.

We then went into the food and not knowing the dishes, I wasn’t sure what to order so they just brought us basically everything they had on the menu!

We had a full selection of incredibly tasty tapas. One tasted completely different than the other, unique flavours and presentations, I cannot even tell you which one I preferred as they all were delicious!

These haggis and harissa kibbeh were amazing!

We then tried cauliflower fritters with zhug (Yemenite Hot Sauce With Cilantro and Parsley) and creme fraiche

More dips to eat with freshly grilled pitta bread

I’m usually not keen on lamb but this one was so good.

Followed by squid, merguez sausage and salmorejo, so tender!

And chuck eye steak, so tasty!

More amazing cocktails…

Although I was incredibly full , I couldn’t say no to dessert and it was so worth it!

Light and delicious.

Honestly you must book a table at this new restaurant. Their cuisine is SO unique. Not only the food tasted incredible but the presentation was just spot on.  Trust me, you will be surprised at the amazing flavours you will experience.
