“Taza in Town is more than just my favourite Syrian restaurant in Edinburgh; it’s a success story that the whole community ought to be proud of. Abdullah Razzouk left Syria in 2009 and set up his Syrian Bakery Taza Bake in 2014. From out of it comes freshly baked Khobez, Baklawa and Ma’Moul Bel Ajweh, which are supplied to many restaurants in Edinburgh and are served alongside juicy kebabs and authentic Arabic meze in Abdullah’s own restaurant, Taza in Town.
Taza means freshness, so you can expect everything to be made from scratch, including those outrageously good falafel – the best in the city, I’d say. It all travels extremely well, making that Levantine cuisine ideal for a living room feast, and it’s as feel good as it is taste good with Taza In Town continuing to support lots of refugee charities and local food banks.”
