The Story of Baba G's
From street food stalls to restaurant dining
The Baba G’s titular name, if you hadn’t heard from various interviews with the founders, Alec Owen and Liz Selway, comes from a trip to India over 10 years ago when they, by chance, encountered a holy Indian man on a mountain.
Serendipitous beginnings, we know. Fast forward 11 years and Baba G’s has gone from strength to strength with their first official restaurant opening TODAY in Camden Market’s North Yard. Street food locations include West Yard Street Food in Camden Lock, Pop Brixton and more recently Vinegar Yard but the North Yard’s site will be Baba G’s permanent home.
From several food pop ups to winning the heart of Michelin star chef, Atul Kochhar following their success on the reality show My Million Pound Menu earlier this year, the fast-food Indian concept continues to grow.
The menu will star fan favourites such as the signature Lamb Jalfrezi Burger topped with an onion bhaji, dressed with mango pulp and mint cumin raita alongside their Pachos (a genius invention: a combination of nachos and poppadoms) and Chicken Tikka Nuggets. New additions comprise of small plates of Lamb Raan and Achaar (Indian pickle) Croquettes, if you fancy something less burger-like.
If the new signage is anything to go by, Baba G’s is bold, bright and here to stay.
Over the May bank holiday weekend, Baba G’s is offering 50% discount during their soft launch. If that doesn’t entice you, we don’t know what will.
