Bubala has been running a series of sold out pop ups for the last year and a half at Carousel, Berber & Q and Untitled Bar and have finally secured our first site. We are a vegetarian Middle Eastern concept with a focus on bright, punchy flavours designed to share, taking inspiration from our travels across the region. Behind Bubala is Marc Summers (founder and ex GM of Berber & Q) and Head Chef Helen Graham, who has worked at The Palomar, The Barbary, The Good Egg and Ottolenghi. We will be opening a 30 seater restaurant on Commercial Street, East London in the late summer of this year.
Though not vegetarian ourselves, we have been hungering after a restaurant that puts vegetables first, and excites meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans alike. We don't believe vegetarian food should be about strange meat alternatives and substitutes, but instead fresh, bold flavours. Tel Aviv has one of the strongest vegetarian dining cultures around, and we really feel it's time to bring this fun approach to London.
Since we are a brand new opening we are looking for someone who will hit the ground running. You will assist Helen in the daily and weekly operations of the kitchen and ensure every plate that leaves the kitchen is delicious, innovative, and consistent. You will also help to motivate the team in a positive and encouraging environment and help build a great working culture. We want someone with great ideas, tonnes of inspiration and an ability to create and implement efficient systems for the restaurant going forward.
