raw

Nama-ste!

There’s a secret little place in Notting Hill that gives you glow power. A few bites of their delicious raw and vegan delights will leave you beaming from ear to ear all day long. It’s a peaceful spot on Talbot Road called Nama

They serve foamy almond flat whites that make you go mmmmmmmmm.

Name Notting Hill coffee

And matcha lattes that make you go ahhhhhhhhh.

They make oodles of noodles which are made of courgette. Spiralised into thick ribbons, covered in a light sauce of tomato and the freshest black olives – it felt like eating real pasta again! But better.

I am now a total courgetti spaghetti convert.

Their chilli is made from mushrooms, walnut, carrots and peppers, served with guacamole and corn chips! We tucked right in.

And how about a palate cleansing juice to finish?

Made with apple, kale, celery, cucumber and lemon my Sweet Green was just what it said on the…  jar. Sweet and so very green.

I didn’t want to leave Nama, its calming ambiance and healthy treats. I just only wish it was open 24/7.

Tanya’s Cafe Chelsea

Vegan? Gluten free? Organic? Tanya’s Cafe ticks very health box. In fact, everything that comes out of Tanya’s kitchen is completely raw and full of nutrients.

A place for yoga bunnies to meet up post work out and nibble on seriously delicious and raw food, there’s a bit of hype around Tanya’s at the moment. And rightly so. The food is amazing! It’s not cheap – but it really is worth the price tag.

Raw Tacos at Tanyas Cafe Chelsea

We ordered the tacos, which were the tastiest tacos I’ve ever eaten. Guacamole, portobello mushroom ‘meat’ and salsa in a dehydrated taco.

This was followed by crunchy munchy cheesy kale chips and avocado with super-seed mix.

We skipped out of Tanya’s, satisfyingly full and glowing with raw-ness.

The Detox Kitchen

I’ve been following The Detox Kitchen on Instagram for a few months now, and each day I’m wowed by the beauty and simplicity of their tasty-looking dishes. Last Friday morning they posted a photo of their stuffed aubergines on a bed of rocket. Dotted with pomegranate jewels and flaked almonds, the aubergines looked so good that they sent me marching to The Detox Kitchen’s Kingly Street deli, where I met my great friend Jess for lunch.

I had the roasted aubergine with a selection of three salads which included celery, avocado, quinoa, cucumber, spinach, pumpkin seeds and tomatoes. It was all so DELICIOUS and accompanied by a green juice I finally see why everyone raves about this place. I’ll be back next week to try the raw beetroot and cacao brownies! 9/10
