AMOUL: Little Venice, London 0

June 17, 2009

Formosa Street, Little Venice is so cute. It’s about a 30 second walk from the canals and there’s about 6 retailers scattered along it, including a couple of Interior Designers, a Hairdresser, a women’s fashion boutique and of course Amoul.

Amoul herself is a gorgeous middle – aged Lebanese lady…..stunning, very funky and a brillllllliant cook….. and Amoul the cafe/deli, is a home away from home where customers can sit at chunky wooden tables and sip on phenomenal coffee whilst reading the paper and nibbling on a homemade pastry.

Amoul cooks everything on the premises from scratch and all of her products and ingredients have been sourced locally. It’s a family business and so the place feels very cosy and private – in a good way – as though you’ve been invited around to Amoul’s for a cuppa and a chat.

The food is predominanly Lebanese with a bit of a Mediterranean flash here and there – so you can expect all the traditional Leb things when you pop in – Labneh, Olives, Hummus, Eggs, Beans, Lentils, Pistachio desserts etc. They also serve RIDICULOUSLY good coffee and all at a very decent price. The interior is tres cool with abstract photography on the walls, chilled music playing and lots of timber joinery housing to-die-for jams and the like. These make great gifts!
