Baba G’s to open first restaurant site

Street food trader Baba G’s will open its first sit-down restaurant on 24 May in Camden Market.

The My Million Pound Menu winner has acquired a 50-cover site in the North Yard next to the statue of Amy Winehouse and will open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.

The space will feature exposed brickwork, steel framed tables and low-level lighting. Bollywood-style graffiti will adorn the walls, alongside an open butchery area where burgers will be made from scratch.

A large open kitchen will be bordered by a marble counter with a full food menu for guests, and a window hatch will offer a shorter takeaway menu for passers-by.

Think poppadum nachos, chicken tikka nuggets and Bhangra burgers, as well as new small plates such as lamb croquettes and celeriac bhajis drawing from founders Alec Owen and Liz Selway’s time on My Million Pound Menu.

The drinks menu includes Indian-inspired milkshakes and cocktails focussing on Old Fashioneds and spiced rum.

“We started our journey with Camden Market as part of its international street food line-up (located in the West Yard, overlooking Regent’s Canal) and so when the opportunity arose to see our brand grow further, the Market seemed like the natural choice,” says Selway.

“We can’t wait to showcase the full Baba G experience, mixing up our signature Bhangra burgers with inspired side shares and dishes for the whole family. We’ll be in great company too, rubbing shoulders with the likes of The Cheese Bar, The Camden Grocer and rotisserie restaurant Kuku Riku.”
