We’vebeen waiting and waiting for the next restaurant to take up a space in those Arches in Haggerston and finally here it is! Berber & Q, a Middle Eastern and North African grill house, will open 21st April, 2015.
The menu, spilt into ‘Meat’, ‘Vegetables’, ‘Sandwiches’ and ‘Sweets’ will be focused around the mangal, charcoal grill and smoker – Berber and Q, ya g’eddit? Meats include the Lamb Mechoui, pulled forequarter of lamb eaten by hand (WASH YOUR HANDS PEOPLE!); Quail with rose and plum yoghurt; and Beef Kefta with walnut and apricot. The changing menu will include ‘Vegetables’ of Blackened aubergine with walnut and tahini; Cauliflower with turmeric and lime butter and Glazed beetroot with date syrup and whipped feta.
The sauces are homemade – think Zhug, red chilli sauce and green tahini, and all orders will come with griddled Israeli Ciapita and Berber house salad.
There will be wines from small producer and a Middle Eastern cocktail list featuing the SazARAK, Scammed in Marakesh Punch and Haggerstoned. We’re in.
