Samad Al Iraqi Restaurant brings history to LondonHALAL STATUS Fully Halal
After Baghdad, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur and Muscat, Samad Al Iraqi Restaurant will be debuting in the upmarket London district of Kensington today.
Located on the High Street, this 96-cover Middle Eastern venue says it “will bring to the table a food experience that you’ve never previously seen in London”.
With a spacious and airy environment, its interior is reminiscent of the Iraqi capital in the 1950s with a striking combination of wood and bronze, with pieces of the latter, having been brought directly from the country’s Souk Al Sufafeer market, actually dating back to the 1940s.
One eye-catching feature to look out for is the Masgouf corner where an ancient Mesopotamian method of butterflying marinated fish, before grilling it over the flames of fruit-tree wood to impart a delicate flavour, will be utilised.
This cooking style’s roots extend back to the Sumerian and Babylonian times where historical engravings detailing such preparation have been discovered.
Keep your eyes peeled and your taste buds primed for an exciting new Arab restaurant with plenty of history to it.
