Birdie Num Nums, New Cross Road

Birdie Num Nums is a new cafe serving an eclectic mix of bowl foods, salads, cakes and coffees, with a strong Turkish influence. Located just down from Chinwag and a clutch of other restaurants and cafes, it looks like a great addition to the area and is already picking up good reviews on Twitter.

What are bowl foods? Is that just food that comes in a bowl?

Lelly said...

It's a reference to a Peter Sellars film .........

Yes, you know - stews, soups, etc. My phrase not theirs so if you don't like it, don't hold it against me.

Sorry I just thought I'd missed out on some exciting new culinary craze. Presumably they do plate foods as well.

Visited here last weekend, very slow service and then they forgot the food! However, when it arrived it was very good so hopefully the service will improve!

'Birdy Nam Nam' is a DJ crew (an excellent DJ crew) which I presume this name references?

I stand corrected...

To add to what lots of others are saying, I too thought the food and service were great when I visited yesterday. And it didn't feel like a place where a non-student couldn't hang out. Plus a bit more space than in the great but oh-so-tiny London Particular.

Well, that absolutely sucks. But unfortunately SOMETIMES it happens. We are still new to this being a cafe malarkey so hope you can forgive us for being crap....Pop in again and we'll make you a delicious freebie coffee to say sorry!
