It can be hard to find a well priced restaurant in Covent Garden if you’re not looking for a chain restaurant, but On the Bab is a real gem in this area, and a restaurant I know I’ll be going back to again and again!
I loved the way they served the beer in a slightly different way, and meant that we could pour ourselves another drink without having to catch the eye of the waitress.
We started with the pan fried shrimp dumplings which were frankly, incredible. Crispy on the outside but soft on the inside and bursting with flavour, I almost wanted to order a second portion of these beauties.
This dish was absolutely delicious: I loved the kick of spice that it had, and the egg was perfectly cooked. The only thing I would change is that I’d have liked a bit more bacon ’cause, you just can’t go wrong with more bacon.
It was such an interesting take on a Spanish classic: I love inventive cooking and cuisine and this dish had it all.
Just look at it!
The other main that we had was the spicy pork steamed buns, which were, well bun-believable. Sorry, I made the pun so many times on the night that I had to make it again in my post!
These little soft pillowy clouds are divine, especially with a spicy filling that gives the dish a really firey kick. There’s no lady like way to eat these, you’ve just got to dive in and give it a go!
