LaffaLaffa, which takes its name from the Middle Eastern flatbread used as a wrap, gives a modern take on Eastern Mediterranean street food. Created by Ben MacAndrews and Gabriel Langford, Laffa - trading at Rupert Street, Soho, Wednesday to Friday lunchtimes and Broadgate Circle on various weekdays prior to opening here at Flat Iron Square - has been inspired by the food stalls and cooking of the Levant, the area spanning the shores of the Eastern Mediterranean. Their changing menu means vegetables and marinated meats are grilled then piled up into a warm fluffy pita or 'laffa' together with seasonal salads, fragrant herbs and their homemade sauces. Dishes to sample include lamb kofta, sabich, harissa and mint steak bavette, lemon and za'atar chicken, grilled aubergine and halloumi.
