About us

Bubala has been popping up for the last year and a half at Carousel, Brunswick East, Berber & Q and Untitled Bar. We are a vegetarian Middle Eastern concept with a focus on bright, punchy flavours designed to share. Behind Bubala is Marc Summers (Bubala 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’ve been hotly tipped by Eater, Time Out and The Nudge, and will be making a big splash in the new wave of exciting vegetarian restaurants to hit London. We will be opening a 30 seater restaurant on Commercial Street, East London in the late summer of this year.
