There are probably only a few things that I love more than discovering different restaurants with delicious food.
Ottolenghi is one of those restaurants, it’s definitely one of my favorites in London for many reasons. It’s a perfect place for the ones looking for healthy but at the same time incredibly tasty and good value food, mainly from Mediterranean & Middle Eastern cuisines.
The restaurant has four branches – in Spitalfields, Notting Hill, Islington and Belgravia. I’ve been to the ones in Islington and Spitalfields, I think they’re both great in terms of service, ambience and decoration. I went there always for lunch, as in my opinion the atmosphere is more suitable for lunch, but you could surely go for dinner as well if you wish.
Their open delicatessen counter is mouth watering, with heavenly desserts on one side, and healthy but delicious salads and side dishes on the other.
For lunch, you can choose different salads from their great selection, either with or without a main course. They also have delicious pastries that could be considered light :)
I have to mention their desserts one more time as the ones that I tried were absolutely amazing. You should definitely try some of them if you haven’t yet – you won’t regret it!
P.S: There’s usually a long queue at the Islington branch of the restaurant, so going there early would be the best.
