Luckily, what’s on offer at Bababoom is unlike any of the other menus in town. In keeping with their authentic middle-eastern flavours, brunch here steers clear of smashed avo and smoked salmon (although the green stuff has found it’s way into the Avacado Tahini) and looks elsewhere for inspiration.
Persian flatbreads, date glazed bacon and perfectly fluffy fried eggs make up the breakfast ‘kebab’, or you can go veggie with aubergine and grilled Mastello cheese instead. The Ultra Runner is the ‘light’ option – expect a plate bursting with fresh veggie produce and soft poached eggs, although to call it ‘light’ might be pushing it a bit. We ordered Dukkah fries on the side, which are available on the brunch menu and also from the main menu, which is available from midday on Saturday’s and Sunday’s (order Baba’s hummus for an Arabic-style dipping experience).
For those who like their brunches sweet, the eggy flatbread is inspired and a serious upgrade from your standard eggy loaf – served with a caramalised banana, honeycomb, clotted cream and Nutella, this is only for the diners with a serious sweet tooth (or the ones who can fit in brunch dessert).
Minimalistic interiors and an open grill make Bababoom a comfortable place to
while away a Sunday morning. If you’re planning on staying for the long haul (brunch is served until 3pm) then invest in a Gigantic Mimosa – 500ml of Cremant
de Loire and tongue-tingling fresh OJ – perfect for anyone fending off
