Looking for Jachnun in London?
The overnight cook Yamenite jewish pastry Jachnun is one of my favourites foodies ever and for almost two years living in London I was looking for a it; I’ve heard that some supermarkets in Golders Green sale it frozen, but I really wanted to find a place that actually serve it cooked just like in Israel and guess what? I did. You can’t even imagine my excitement when I first tasted it in London, well, you can see the picture.
Roni’s is a the place where you can find very simple Israelis meals in London. From great Jacnun with tomato sauce (but no skhug/ zhug, Middle Eastern hot sauce) to malwauch,Shakshuka, Borekas, Greek salad (as we eat it in Israel) and even Rugelach.
Roni’s has 3 coffee shops in London (all in the same area in Hampstead) and I’ve checked the one at 37 BELSIZE LANE, NW3 5AS.They have outdoor sitting, which means you can bring your dog (if you have any) and for an hour or two you can be in London but feel like you are in Tel Aviv.
The prices were decent and the quality of the food was great. I wasn’t really expecting it to be good but I was surprised with the performance of it.
So if you are looking to have a great Saturday morning, just like they do in many houses and coffee shops in Israel but in London, I would totally recommend you to check Roni’s, which is now my new favourite place for my weekends when I want to feel home.
