Gaby's Deli

Let’s say a prayer and help save Gaby's Deli.

If you’ve been banged up for a consideration stretch somewhere in the Altai Mountains then you best read about the above here, here and Norm’s biased review here.

The delectable falafel that begat Gaby's enviable reputation.

Although I’m no groupie of the houmous stuff- but I’ll happily scoff Gaby’s version with a malicious satisfaction every time

The salt beef.

It too substantiated Gaby's status as an institution.

It may not be the be all and end all of salt beef sandwiches but it’s still pretty good. I suppose the ideal time to sample the above at its best is between noon and 1pm when the beef comes straight out of the bain-marie; it’ll always be succulent, moist and gratifying.

The kebabs on offer here are unfortunately not in the same league as our Turkish friends’ efforts like here or here but Gaby's giant meatballs deserve a special mention for they were particularly memorable.

So readers and Londoners alike, like the mother of all nudges goes- please sign the petition and keep this place alive for years to come. Thank you.

I recommend the mixed vegetable stew platter (7 ir 8 hot dishes on one plate) if you are in the area - unlike anything else I've ever had anywhere - the ultimate mumsy comfort food. Nice photos btw.
