Nana Fanny - Our Menu for Spitalfields Market
has been in our family since 1944. My Nana (my Fathers mother), cooked Salt Beef at the turn of the century in the East End of London, and passed her secret to my father many years ago. He in turn has passed that to me. For the last 10 years, I've been selling our Salt Beef in London's finest food markets
Our salt beef is still hand brined and cooked the traditional way producing that soft buttery texture. We serve it on either Bagels baked fresh every day from Moishe's bakery right here in the market, or marbled Polish rye which contains a traditional Caraway seed, and of course there is our famous take on 'The Reuben' which is served on a golden challa roll.
is often cited as 'The Best Falafel In London'. Made with a half and half mixture of organic Turkish chickpeas and skinned fava beans (fuul), Its served on a Khobiz (a Lebanese flatbread) which is coated with hummus made from large white Mexican chickpeas, then sauced with Lebanese tahini (sesame pulp) containing concentrated lemon juice, along with homemade chili. We don't use citric acid or garlic, which is fine for home made hummus, but which we find can taste a little stale if its stored for any length of time. All Served with bright pink pickled turnips (pickled with organic Norfolk cider vinegar and beetroot for natural colour) that traditionally go with falafel. Add our homemade cabbage salad, tomatoes and lettuce and you have the perfect walk along street food. A wrap of pure loveliness
Finely grated potatoes & onion are combined with eggs, seasoning and matzo meal then fried in canola oil to create the ultimate comfort food. These make a fab snack or accompaniment to our salt beef. Traditional served with sour cream and apple sauce dips. Absolutely stunning
