Breath is food
The body eats food

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

- 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.

Now more than ever, Lungi Babas is committed to providing freshly-cooked, nutritious food to Frome and the wider community.

Come to Loop de Loop for lunch on Saturdays or order your dinner here for delivery or collection Wednesday to Saturday

We do one South Indian inspired Thali every day. Our Thali plate consists of a generous combination of perfectly matched dishes.

It is very important for us to serve food cooked all from scratch using whole spices, vegetables and herbs. All our powders, masalas, chutneys and spices are made fresh every day in our kitchen. Our aim is to serve six tastes of nature and five colours on every plate of Thali..... Looking forward to serving you some happy, traditional and celebratory meals. Happy week ahead!
