Fun, food and folklore

Breath is food
The body eats food
This Body rests on the breath
Breath rests on the body
Food is resting on food
The one who knows this becomes rich in food and great in fame
(Taittiriya Upanishad 11.7)

- 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.
