Bala BayaThe first stand-alone project from chef Eran Tibi, Bala Baya is the epitome of modern Israeli cooking. Inspired by the sites and sounds of Tel Aviv, the restaurant and bakery launched in Old Union Street Arches, Southwark, in October 2017. Descended from a family of Middle Eastern origins and cuisines, Eran brings the soul, connections and knowledge of this heritage to every bite of his food. Trained at Le Cordon Bleu and in the kitchens of Ottolenghi, Made in Camden at the Roundhouse and as founding Executive Chef at Zest @ JW3, Eran's passion and creativity are apparent in every one of his dishes. Interiors, designed by the award-winning architect Afroditi Krassa, convert a railway arch in Southwark into a simple curved space with modernist architecture and an atmosphere capturing the sun-kissed free spirit of Tel Aviv.
