Honey & Co is a new café from two Israeli chefs. We have visited the cafe just before it was closing around 19:00 during the weekday. However the Cafe starts it`s dinners served sooner.
Honey&Co is a husband-and-wife managed cafe. The Chefs have an incredible background like Itamar Srulovich was the head of Ottolenghi. Sarit Packer was the head of pastry at Ottolenghi and executive chef at Nopi.
It is like a corner of a house. There is only four chairs and two small tables outside. Inside the cafe can accomodate 20 people. Jars of pickles, honeys and marmalades are on one corner of the cafe. Window side is full of pastries, beatiful smelling cakes and desserts. They are all coming out from the basement bakery and kitchen.
The menu is purely from middle east. As Turkish couple, we can fell that with the taste and smell… However there are exceptionally different tastes that are coming from the israeli immigrants that brought to the cuisine from Ukraine, Algeria, Morocco and Iraq.
We start with the house made lemonade. i suggest you taste the daily meze menu with different selections like hummus, feta cheese, melon and falafel. We both share a small portion of Falafel with incredible hummus nearby.
Sedef also gets a small plate of fig sald which is very very fresh and good looking. We also chat with the Chef Itamar. He loves Istanbul and fan of the food. He is cool and chatty.
Sedef chooses a chicken with cous cous. as a main course. The portions are not huge but sufficient compared to the price that you are paying for.
My preference is lamb shwarma. One of the best that i ate so far. The pita is baked downstairs by the Chefs. They know this really well. The souce and pomegranades on it is a pure middle eastern touch.
We rally struggle during the selection of desserts. But with the help of the people we agree on Cold Cheese Cake with Kadaif pastry.
That was one of the best desserts we had in London. So light, so tasty. Sharing this was very hard as both of us wished we had ou own 🙂
I really suggest to visit Honey&Co, chat with their owner, have the best middle east cuisine in London. We will visit them soon for dinner.
