Time Out Says
You can sit indoors or outdoors, and wherever you choose you’ll get a good view. The interiors are eclectic and it’s as if the restaurant has had a bit of an identity crisis – but in the best of ways. There’s an aqua blue-wooden mesh backdrop, with clashing vibrant floral seats.
The ZouZou Arabic breakfast tray is an easy choice, with more than 14 small dishes including honey with cream (a sweet and delicious highlight), labneh, jam with butter and pastrami. We dig in – no cutlery needed – scooping it up with crispy Turkish bread.
And the sujuk is one of the best things that’s happened to us in years. The foul and falafel are proof that the chef is just as good with the Lebanese cooking as with the Turkish.
After clearing our tiny, yet very filling, plates we order a side of nakanek when we can’t find the sujuk as a standalone on the menu – we wish we had. Ending the meal with a good cup of Turkish coffee, we now see why Zouzou is so popular.
Sometimes sluggish service aside, the food is an absolute winner, the vibe is laid-back and beachy and there’s a kids’ menu for little ones too.
We’re coming back for lunch next time – that doner is calling our names.
