She bases Baraca’s menus around fresh local ingredients, drawing her inspiration from the farmer's market, local farms and her own massive garden supplies most of the vegetables, fruits, salads and herbs. She prepares a range of ingredients from naturally fermented vinegars, home-made pickles and preserves, vinaigrettes, her own secret spice mixes to jolly good dips, condiments, sauces and oils. All of her ingredients are made with passion, care and attention to tastes.

With its characteristic interior, Baraca serves a vast array of delicious menus bursting with healthy foods; plenty of vegan, gluten free and vegetarian dishes, hot and cold mezes, meat and fish specialities that love you and your taste so everyday there is something for everyone you can choose from the menu, all of which are made fresh several times a day and cooked to order.

There are no set times for belly dancers to perform at present as COVID-19 is still with us, and we should stay cautious to help protect ourselves and our guests. We are really sorry that we are still unable to schedule any at present and hoping our regular belly dancing nights will return as soon as it is feasible. In the meantime, we have a vast collection of Arabic and Turkish music from a variety of singers, belts and hats and partying is always welcome.

For those extra special occasions, there's nowhere quite like Baraca as we will still be serving delicious food, your favourite drinks, gourmet coffees and a relaxing atmosphere
