Found just off the High St in the heart of Walsall, BaBa Reeba is a great for trying authentic Spanish cuisine and desi (South Asian) fusion. Since opening in late 2015, it has lived up to its name which means “quick to deliver excitement”, gathering positive reviews in the local press and receiving praise on social media by customers delighted by the interesting menu and excellent customer service.
The restaurant is cosy, but with plenty of breathing room for groups of friends and families who want to enjoy the casual atmosphere. The décor is stylish but peppy, with the walls adorned with Spanish decorations to get you in the mood for your meal. You can see the food being prepared fresh due to the open kitchen, whence it is served by very friendly, attentive staff keen to make BaBa Reeba a local favourite.
An entirely halal menu has been crafted by a Chef with 14 years of experience in Barcelona, so expect to find a broad selection of Spanish cuisine, desi fusion and international dishes, incorporating Greek, Italian, Arabic and North African cuisine’s best methods and ingredients, passed down through Spain’s history of food. Tapas is a popular choice here, with the likes of patatas bravas, a dish full of spicy deep fried potato cubes, and alitas de pollo, a succulent set of fiery chicken wings, bringing authentic flavours to this Spanish social dining practice, with authentic paella made with meat, seafood or vegetables also on offer.
The other speciality of this restaurant is the desi fusion, so prepare for delicious surprises such as the Peshwari karahi, hunzai handi, and sindi biriyani. If you prefer the flavours of Italy, try the rich risottos, or pasta dishes including lasagne al horno and spaghetti bolognaise. Handmade beef and chicken burgers, a selection of hot, delicious pizzas and refreshing salads complete this varied menu.
Walsall now has a very inviting Spanish restaurant tucked away in its town centre thanks to BaBa Reeba, and you are welcome to enjoy this dining experience with 2 for 1 on food when you book in advance as a tastecard member.
