Mo's Eggs x Ombra Pop-Up - Syria meets Italy - Sunday 16th June
1 Vyner St, London E2 9DG, UK
Syria meets Italy. Join us for a taste sensation!
As part of the Refugee Food Festival, Mo of Mo's Eggs is teaming up with Venetian restaurant and bar, OMBRA, on Sunday 16th June! Together they have created an Italian-Syrian menu for you to indulge in on Hackney’s canal side. It’s going to be pretty special.
Mo's cooking is inspired by his upbringing in the spectacularly beautiful, fertile mountain town of Ain al-Fijah in southern Syria. Every fresh vegetable, fruit and herb you could imagine grew on the doorstep, and people came together to cook, share and enjoy this food together.
OMBRA is East London’s take on a Venetian baraco - small plates, great wines - which specialises in homemade pasta recipes using seasonal produce from Italy and selected British farmers.
Come and feast on an irresistibly delicious mezze of ghanoush with a twist, hummus, stuffed vine leaves and spring onion salad drizzled in pomegranate, followed by homemade tagliatelle with slow roasted lamb and preserved lemon or whipped feta ravioli, with spinach & pistachio for your main, and last but not least; Italian gelato with baklava and Syrian coffee.
There will be sittings at 12noon and 12.30, 2pm and 2.30pm, 4pm
