Yahala Mataam is Arabic for Welcome Restaurant.
The idea for Yahala Restaurant came after sampling the food cooked by Syrians living in York. An Arabic feast full of flavour, recipes handed down many generations; cooked for the first time in the City.
Yahala Restaurant is a Pop-up restaurant, opening up for one night a month. It is a partnership project between the Refugee Council, York City Church and a group of gifted chefs from Syria. Make sure to ctahc them either at their demo on Wednesday at 12pm, at their weekend stand or at their pop-up restaurant.
