Le Bab to host best London kebab competition

Kebab kings Stephen Tozer and Ed Brunet, founders of Soho’s gourmet kebab restaurant Le Bab, have announced they will host the first Great British Bab Off on Sunday 11 February.

The charity event, in partnership with Action Against Hunger, will see Le Bab compete with four of London’s hottest restaurants for the title of the capital’s best kebab,with all proceeds going to the charity.

The restaurants confirmed to take part in the inaugural Great British Bab Off (or GBBO for short) alongside Le Bab are Yosma, Ikoyi, El Pastor and Pitt Cue Co.

Le Bab's dish, created by head chef Manu Canales Garces, will be 'Barbecue Herdwick lamb's tongue, iskender dressing & meadow leaves, in a sheep buttermilk flatbread'. Manu will go head-to-head against fellow chefs Hus Vedat (Yosma), Jeremy Chan (Ikoyi), Jacob Rosen (Pitt Cue Co.) and James Hart (El Pastor), each cooking their dish at the Kingly Court restaurant.

Customers will then enjoy the five-course GBBO tasting menu before voting on whose kebab should be crowned the winner. Le Bab will announce the results on social media, once all votes have been counted and officially verified.
