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.

Abokado

For some of the freshest, healthiest and yummiest food in London, look no further than Abokado. This delightful chain is now my favourite lunch place – and they have such a great selection of things to eat that you’ll never get bored – or pick the same lunch option again and again. My favourites include the wild brown rice and herb salad with avocado and a minty yoghurt dressing (pictured below) and their Super Omega 3 salmon sushi. In fact all the sushi options are so good that is is very hard to choose.

Abokado source all their fish ethically and sustainably, and they support British producers for their fruit and veg whenever possible. You can tell the high quality of all their ingredients as everything tastes so damn good! They support lots of charities too.

Abokado Sushi - The Hungry Crumpet

Last but not least, the story of Abokado is something a little special. It was set up in 2004 by a couple called Mark and Lindsay with a ‘crazy dream’ and a sincere love of food. They had been travelling in Australia and were overwhelmed by the fresh and tasty food options in Sydney, so they vowed to bring back this healthy food philosophy to the UK. Thank goodness they did! Abokado beats all high street competitors on taste and quality. And the staff are lovely and smiley too.

In fact, I’m off to buy some of their sushi right now. See ya! 8/10
