Hi beauties! Goodness, since I got my new iPhone with more storage I take so many photos I forget about them. These photos of Babel Deli from when Jamie and were there visiting my family are an example of something i was super excited to share with you guys but forgotten. It’s quite weird because I fell in love with their interior. Look at the splashes colour and the floor tiles. I absolutely love turquoise so you can imagine that this was the dream for me!
Babel Deli is a place I’ve been wanting to visit for years but they’re usually closed for the summer or Christmas when I’m in Stockholm. So now when I was there during a different time of the year it was time for a visit.
We got there during the peak lunch hour rush and it was absolutely mobbed! I took most of these photos when it had quietened down because you could barely move by the till area. A great sign that this was the place to be for lunch.
There are so many tasty sounding things to choose from, you can make your own meze plate, get a wrap, salad and lots of other delicious things. I went for the vegan plate made up of bulgur, hummus, chickpeas, baba ganoush, falafel, dolmades, sweet potato with a dressing. It all felt super fresh and very delicious.
I would say my portion was quite small for a veggie dish, you need more food to fill you up when you don’t have meat in your dish but it was very tasty. I think the falafel was fried if I was going to be super picky about the healthiness of the dish and all but if you don’t eat it too frequently it’s fine (and I was in holiday mode). I do prefer oven baked falafel (like Martha’s here in Glasgow, the dream!).
Everyone really loved their food and in that beautiful setting it really was a hit. Great for a takeout during the summer months for a sunny lunch in the nearby park as well.
