Easton is something of a hidden gem. To strangers, it's a mysterious land, accessible only by the Stapleton Road train station, and often overlooked in favour of the trendier Stokes Croft, North Street, and Clifton scenes. To those in the know, however, wandering round Easton is the hot ticket to a fabulous weekend of tasty, authentic, and varied food and drink. Allow us to enlighten you!
Baba Ganoush is a vibrant new arrival on the Stapleton Road, and well on its way to becoming an integral part of the Easton food scene. Owner Shad places an emphasis on community - which is clear from both the warm welcome which the staff here offer up to every single visitor, and the typically Bristolian graffiti on the walls. The food is super-fresh Middle-Eastern fair - think monstrously large grilled chicken, falafel or halloumi wraps (perfect to grab-and-go), or large mezze platters, ideal for sharing with pals, with a choice between meat or veggie.
