I have heard/read good opinions of Yalla Yalla, Peckham Bazaar (menu changes), Andy's Taverna, Vrisaki, Konaki for restaurants, or you could try Phoenica Mediterranean Food Hall or Green Valley for takeaway.

For restaurants, I would recommend Konaki too but if you want to enjoy it at home, you'd better order at Delices & Gourmandises, or Donald Russell, they both have good reputation for quality mail order.

I've been hearing good remarks about Yalla Yalla but it is always busy people said. is it really the case?  My daughter and her husband will be back from New York next saturday, we use to go to the restaurant once they come in the Uk,maybe we will give a first try at Konaki. I didn't expect there are companies who are still working on mail order, my wife was addicted to this kind of process at her time unfortunately she is not there.I'd be grateful if you can remember me the process Jennifer.

It depends on the company you are going to order the items you want Leo, each of them has their own process. As far as  Delices & Gourmandises is concerned, you send the order by mail and 2 days after you will receive the products whereas at Donald Russell , you can order the items online, by post or by phone, it's up to you. I think, you'd better visit their website.

Thanks a lot Jennifer! Do you know where I can find more information about it ? I would appreciate if it is in English, I am not good at translation.

Especially as you are in London, go with Donald Russell, which is local, and has a solid reputation. In addition to being based in Belgium (think shipping costs), Delices & Gourmandises has a history of some rather troubling accusations.

I can also prepare it instead of ordering food from unknown brand, thanks a lot Jennifer. Anyway, I found interesting recipes on Delices Gourmandises blog,  this one for example http://delicesandgou...carne-18983262/ I love that spicy dish.

I was looking for Lamb Moussaka recipe but didn't find any. I should have prepare it myself, don't you think Mjx?

Making the moussaka yourself would guarantee that it is fresh and of the quality you want, but your question in the OP, 'any recommendations of the best supplier in London?', suggested that you were looking for it ready-made. . . don't you think, Léo? ;)

 

If you make that recipe, do report on the results. I find the amount of ground hot chili recommended quite interesting.
