Maison Bab has created a hidden restaurant in its basement behind a fake kebab shop in its basement. Where everything's served on the counter. It's quite special, so we went down for a look.

As you'd expect from any trad tea set, there'll be teeny sandwiches including 'tuna' salad, 'egg' salad and smoked 'salmon' with cream cheese. That 'salmon', for example, will be made by
