London pub the King & Co has announced it will host street food traders specialising in Iraqi cuisine.

Juma Kitchen will take up residency at the south London pub from 3 October to 30 October, serving a range of meze and small plates.

Dishes on Juma kitchen’s roster include lamb bourek – lamb, onion and parsley in filo cigars; dijaj bilmynarinj – boneless, crispy chicken thigh served on layered potato with saffron sauce and caramelised onions; and dolma – tender lamb mince marinated in Iraqi spices with rice, wrapped in vine leaves and onion shells, and served with a lamb chop.

Dessert options

As well as meze and small plates, they will provide a range of dessert options including knafa – baked cream and soft cheese topped with shredded filo pastry; and baklava; as well as a weekend brunch.

The King & Co has previously hosted a range of specialist street food traders.

The most recent of these was Tapas outfit Tiberi,​ which served a range of takes on Spanish classics throughout July such as black rice squid balls with aioli; hand-cut patatas bravas and escalivada and goats’ cheese dumplings.

Previous residencies

Back in February, the pub hosted Fowl Mouths, a Japanese fusion pop-up​ that served dishes such as eight-hour braised miso short rib; pork belly ‘Benedict’ with poached eggs and yuzu hollandaise; and twice-fried chicken karaage with wasabi coleslaw.

And prior to that, seafood-focused traders Squid Kitchen took up residence, specialising in Madrid-style squid dishes such as bocadillos de calamares – sourdough rolls stuffed with fried squid rings and patatas bravas with spicy tomato; chorizo stew; and ‘Godfather’ peppers.
