Fresh from celebrating the news that his popular Dave show ‘Big Zuu’s Big Eats’ has been renewed for another season, West London grime artist Big Zuu has launched his very own kebab at Middle Eastern restaurant, Le Bab.
Zuu’s natural on-screen charisma alongside his boyhood bros Tubsey and Hyder has seen him land a second season of his debut food show, which sees the self-taught chef head across the UK to bring his big eats to some of the countries favourite comedians. Taking to Twitter to announce the news, Zuu said: “Thank you to the amazing people at Dave + all the supporters, we will back on your TV screens very soon.”

The MTP Crew member wasn’t finished cooking up new project there, though. Zuu has created his very own dish – the “Big Zuu” kebab – with London-based restaurant Le Bab – and the results look absolutely banging.
The idea was conjured up by Zuu and Le Bab’s executive chef Manu Canales after becoming a friend of the restaurant while filming a segment of Big Zuu’s Big Eats at Maison Bab in Covent Garden.
Canales drew influence from Big Zuu’s Lebanese and Sierra Leonian heritage, and love for Italian cuisine to create the new kebab. His starting point was Zuu’s favourite Le Bab kebab – the “fried chicken” shish kebab – which uses BBQ free-range grilled chicken shish and crispy-fried chicken, all under one sourdough naan blanket.
The kebab – that Zuu dubs “art that you can eat” – features “salt and vinegar” cassava chips and a scotch bonnet BBQ sauce to celebrate Zuu’s Sierra Leonian heritage, with garlic toum providing another Lebanese touch, with grated parmesan adding a nod to Italy.
The “Big Zuu Kebab” is available at Le Bab and Maison Bab from 24th September 31st October – get a closer look at it below and check out a video of Zuu making the self-titled “number one kebab”, here.
