SesameNoam Bar, one of the founders of Ottolenghi, brings flavours from across the Mediterranean - from beach shacks in Istanbul to the alleys of Jerusalem - to Sesame, a restaurant serving street food to-go. Named "the poshest kebab shop in the world" by The Times, Sesame specialises in thick, fluffy pittas bursting with flavours, sumptuous salads and exotic desserts. Freshly grilled meats come wrapped in flat breads filled out with vegetable salad and spiced with tahini. Along with spicy paprika chicken and lamb and beef kebab are vegetarian choices like roasted aubergine and egg sandwich served with mango pickle in a pitta. With a name like Ottlenghi behind it - the chefs from that successful venture are behind the menu here - Sesame is "reinventing the great British kebab shop" (The Times).
