In a city full of kebab-related choices, Bababoom is a pretty good option if you’re on Upper Street. Kebabs are served with flatbread or a freshly made fattoush salad, and range from 24-hour marinaded mutton, to coal fired cauliflower. It’s the kind of place where a bit of pomegranate is thrown on here and a drizzle of tahini there on a lot of the dishes. Generally, it’s fresh and good value, and somewhere you can easily imagine yourself relying on if you live or work nearby.
