What do we need to know about Juma?
Phil Juma, the man behind Juma and also Kubba - which opened at Borough Market in January - has been on Hot Dinners' radar for quite some time. We first tried his food when he held an Iraqi popup at Season in Stroud Green. Then we popped down to check out his permanent stall at Borough, which is when we first encountered his amazing knafa. But when that closed he, like many others, diversified into a collection/delivery business (along with cooking for NHS workers).
What are they delivering?
In addition to being able to buy packs of frozen kubba haleb or chaps (Iraqi patties) you choose from a meat, vegetarian or vegan box. Each box feeds between two or three people (easily, in our opinion) and consists of a range of ready to eat mezze along with dishes to heat up and a DIY knafa kit.
Here's what we had:
What's the choice like for vegetarians?
The two other boxes are either vegetarian or vegan and recent ones have included an okra stew and a coconut milk dessert with Basra date syrup.
Honestly, we've never had a duff meal from this Iraqi chef and JUMA's delivery service was no different. Comes highly recommended.
