Delicatessen – bringing you a taste of the Middle East in Hampstead

Having come across many Middle Eastern restaurants and pop ups stalls around London lately I was intrigued to see what would make Delicatessen different …

After an evening enjoying the amazing dishes curated by Executive Chef, Or Golan who was previously Head Chef at Ottolenghi I was provided with many a reason to return. Delicatessen creates Middle Eastern kosher flavours with a twist. All dishes are packed with freshness and look as good as they taste. This cute little restaurant makes for a perfect date night or group dining with friends or family. The staff are attentive and friendly making you feel welcome as you commence your food journey into the Middle East.

The dishes are designed for sharing, so you can experience several flavours and there is sure to be something to everyone’s taste. I was impressed by the delicate flavours of each dish and the individual creations and mix of herbs and spice that added something different to each dish. We were served a selection of starters from the beef carpaccio and seabream carpaccio which was really good especially as they added truffle to these dishes.

A truly beautiful restaurant with a passionate chef who wants you to feel his love of the middle eastern culture and dishes through his food – I certainly felt I could have been in the Middle East.
