La Cabina, the little brother of Mexican
street-food spot Tereza, offers roast tomato soup and torn piglet quesadilla.
And their chili con carne is unmissable, a real warm-you-up.
Mazel Tov has brought flavours of the Middle East and a few spoons of Morocco to the Winter Food Fest. You can choose from their vegan lentil soup, lamb-flavoured, spicy-ginger Moroccan harira ragout and their special Reuben sandwich.
