Arabica Bar & Kitchen - James Walters

James Walters is a self-taught chef and the driving force behind the successful Arabica Food and Spice Company, and the recently launched Arabica Bar and Kitchen in Borough Market.

James’ passion for Levantine produce began at Borough Market over 14 years ago, where he began selling a small range of simple mezze from an eight foot trestle table. The demand grew rapidly and Arabica Food and Spice has since established itself as an online shop, with an additional outpost in the famous Selfridges Food Hall, market stalls at several London locations and a prestigious list of customers including Harrods, Fortnum & Mason, Harvey Nichols, The Savoy Hotel and The Shangri La at The Shard.

In June 2014 James traded in his stall at Borough Market and opened Arabica Bar and Kitchen. The 80 cover bar and restaurant serves Levantine inspired food and cocktails; and on market days the Arabica street cart offers a range of mezze, pastries and falafel and shawarma wraps to take away.
