After launching his new breakfast market concept Bala Baya Shook last month, we sit down with Israeli-born chef Eran Tibi for a quick catch up.

All-time favourite London restaurant?
10 Greek street, they use good ingredients and know how to execute them well – simple but always stunning and changing. It has a fabulous atmosphere and super friendly service.

Where do you go when you want to celebrate?
Bistrotheque has always been my go-to for celebrations, go for cabaret followed by dinner. The menu in the last year has really impressed me.

Where would we find you on a night out?
Sink the Pink throw the craziest, most extravagant nights out you can imagine and the energy is amazing.

What’s your local?
My local used to be Trullo and I was so thankful – they do simple Italian like no other. Sadly, I’ve just moved to Bermondsey! So now I go to their younger sister Padella for my fix.

Where do you go for a retail fix?
I hate shopping unless it’s for food. Ridley Road Market is my favourite at the moment, it’s in your face but I have lots of fun there.
