Breath is food
The body eats food
This Body rests on the breath

Food is resting on food
The one who knows this becomes rich in food and great in fame

The food is always delicious and freshly cooked, I travel a round trip of 13 miles to enjoy the exciting flavours…

Unbelievable authentic south east Indian food cooked with fresh spices and even fresher veg so you don’t have to watch how much you eat.

- Food is energy -

Life is too short to eat food that isn’t tasty and satisfying. Our food includes all six tastes of nature at every meal so that the major food groups and nutrients are represented and you feel satisfied. We mix home cooked food made from scratch with stories and community focused events.

We are a Frome based business on a mission to provide nourishing food at affordable prices, using ingredients that are as seasonal, locally sourced and environmentally friendly as we can. Yum! Our products and services include popup events, cooking workshops, bespoke events catering and our regular South Indian inspired Thali lunch plate, normally served from our al fresco cafe Loop de Loop.

We are open this week and will stay open throughout lockdown! Now more than ever, Lungi Babas is committed to providing freshly-cooked, nutritious food to Frome and the wider community! Let us help you eat healthy and fresh food to nourish your bodies and your immune system.
