After nearly a decade of trading at some of London’s most sought after street food markets, Baba G’s have begun their journey to life long status with their first permanent restaurant in Camden Market.
Recent winners of TVs Million Pound Menu, Alec Owen and Liz Selway, set up the Indian inspired food stall back in 2008. The name came about when Alec met a holy man – or Baba – up a mountain in Northern India who suggested the name Baba G’s (‘G’ representing ‘sir’ in India).
The 50 seat restaurant is a cavern of exposed brickwork and splashes of neon pink throughout, mirroring their bold logo design. The kitchen is spacious and an open butchery counter takes precedence for all to marvel at their burger creations. The hatch at the front also offers a shorter takeaway menu for those on the go.
The menu, refined to perfection throughout their so far ten year stint, offers their signature Banghra Burgers alongside some quality starters and sharers.
We tried the Naga Delhi Burger which consisted of a DOUBLE lamb patty, onion bahji and naga chilli pickle sauce squashed between a crispy, pillowy, toasted bun.
On the veggie front, they’re right on the money with the Paneer Saag Burger – an absolute wedge of spiced paneer is teamed with spinach saag, mango tamarind and an onion bahji. Again, all served in one heck of a tasty bun.
Sides to note include the Tikka Chicken Nuggets, Raan Lamb Chilli Achaar Croquettes and Okra Fries.
We highly recommend you check out Baba G’s next time you’re in Camden. They’ve just launched on Deliveroo so if you’re in the area, you lucky thing, you can order to your door too.
