French-Palestinian chef and hotelier Fadi Kattan, who runs Fawda in Bethlehem’s Old City where he celebrates the ingredients and flavours of Palestine in a modern way, is coming to London to open Akub. Named after the Arabic word for Fadi’s favourite vegetable (it’s cardoon in English), Akub will be taking over the spot where Malabar used to be in Notting Hill and we can expect a similar style of food, made using the best seasonal British produce as well as from Palestine.
Menu deets are thin on the ground at the moment but we can expect dishes like freekeh risotto with charred green wheat, saffron & cream; mousakhan mille feuille, chicken layered with onion & sumac on taboun bread; and Dead Sea chocolate cake with sea salt, tahini, caramel & pistachio ice cream. Watch this space for more….
