Light crispy briouts are particularly good. Get the mixed plate and savour eggy minced lamb, prawn and pimento, goats cheese and spinach, and the favourite lemony chicken with ginger. Why not finish off with Fresh Moroccan Mint tea and delicate sweet pastries.
Ranoush, part of the Maroush empire, has been squeezing juice s and churnining Shawarma s for decades. Behind the busy counter where the juice squeezers and Shawarma-makers toil, a modest selection on meze is displayed. Many dishes here like falafel, can also be wrapped in Shami bread – along with pickles and garlici Tahini sauce – to take away. Or you can order your food on a plate, and eat at one of the cafe’s marble topped tables or eat at the counter facing the mirrored wall. The flavour used in Ranoush are big and bold.
