Kabak has been serving up Middle Eastern food in and around Lewes for the last six years, using recipes and cooking techniques originating from
Turkey, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt. Our speciality is the meze, which we believe is the most exciting way to enjoy this kind of food: lots of small dishes with widely varying flavours, colours and textures, all making up one feast of a meal. This is precisely what you’ll be getting at Beak: choose your main option from the menu, and it’ll be served alongside an enticing range of accompaniments.
