The Lamb One
It starts with a baguette — rather than the cafe’s popular sourdough — for ease of eating. Next come a swipe of house-made labneh on one side of the bread and Moroccan ketchup, spiced with ginger, cinnamon and cumin, on the other. Kibbeh-style meatballs — made from lamb, sumac, all-spice and bulgur wheat for texture — are warmed and plopped into the sub in a neat little row. Chewy sultanas and waxy pine nuts add texture, while an olive oildressed parsley and mint salad offers herby freshness. St Kevins Arcade, Karangahape Rd, K’ Rd precinct.
