London defo isn’t short of places to get a good pastry or loaf of bread and that number is about to increase as new bakery Baaria is coming to town. Opening just off Leicester Square, Baaria will bring a bit of Italian flair to the West End as it specialises in artisan Sicilian bakes, particularly the mignon. This OG Sicilian street food translates to ‘small bites’ and the inspo came from dishes of pasta stuffed with bechamel and meats served at aristocratic banquets in Palermo. After seeing these grand creations, local bars and cafes started doing their own miniature versions of mingons and they’ve been popular ever since.
Whilst we don’t have any menu deets for Baaria yet, they will be serving up the real deal because they’re working exclusively with Italian sourced ingredients. We’re also being promised coffee, vino and cocktails, so it sounds like the bakery will be somewhere to hang around well into the evening. Bella.
