King Arabic Sandwich

created 01 Jun 2015
Started by Palestinian refugees Hanan Ahmed and her husband, Mohammad Sultan, this humble bakery and cafe in gritty Mayfair, with its exceptionally warm Middle Eastern hospitality and accomplished traditional food, is most deserving of its regal title. Alongside delicious pies, shawarmas, stuffed pita breads (or 'Arabic sandwiches') and petit fours iced with the colours of the Palestinian flag, on Fridays and Saturdays the couple also prepare traditional specialities such as maklooba and qedrah, a kind of Arabic biryani. The homemade hummus and falafel are beyond compare and there is a great selection of typical Middle Eastern ingredients for sale such as preserved stuffed aubergines, za’atar flatbreads, Palestinian couscous and hibiscus juice.


Open 08:00–20:00, Sat, Sun 08:00–22:00. Closed Mon.
