North, south, east, west or right in the thick of it. No matter where your compass takes you in the UK’s capital, you’re going to run across London Middle Eastern restaurants. Two reasons. Primary is that the term Middle Easter cuisine is a grab-bag of a huge number of geographically-associated cuisines. Assyrian, Iraqi, Palestinian, Bahraini, Israeli, Qatari, Cypriot, Jordanian, Saudi Arabian, Egyptian, Kuwaiti, Syrian, Emirati, Lebanese, Turkish, Iranian, Omani, and Yemeni cuisines all count as Middle Eastern cuisine, and all can be found if you look through a comprehensive list of Middle Eastern restaurants in London. Second, in order to take a conservative measure of the scale of London’s Middle Eastern population, there are over 110,000 ‘Arabic’ people living in London alone.
