We are Bababoom
Have you heard the one about the 2 ultra-runners and their skiing sidekick who had a kebab shaped dream?
Over lots of long runs, a few even longer afternoons in the pub, a garden takeover at We Brought Beer & an epic Kebab eating mission to Istanbul – the dream became a reality & BabaBoom was born. We opened our doors in August 2016 on Battersea Rise.
Together we’ve spent over 30 years working in food - from Delhi to Johannesburg, the Alps to Tuscany, and of course London and during that time we’ve got a bit opinionated!
We love real food, big flavours, cooking over fire (we’re cub scouts at heart), outdoor adventures and doing things the right way.
Our pillow-y Persian flatbreads are topped with hearty portions of higher welfare charcoal grilled meats & their punchy vegetable sidekicks. We love combining Middle Eastern flavours with quality British produce & serving you generous plates of food all day long from downright delicious brunch to late night feasts.
We love to chat, so please say hello and tell us what you really think or drop us a line if you fancy a run. We’re always looking for training buddies.
Eve, Travis and Jono.
