20 Dec Ottolenghi Notting Hill
Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi’s Israeli food empire has won over London palates with its sunny Middle Eastern salads and gorgeous pastries.
In the tiny Notting Hill deli, go straight for the breakfast shakshuka. Then, design your own platter with colourful options from the counter—to enjoy at the small immaculate guest table, or to take away: roast pumpkin with spiced farro, pomegranate and feta; rice with curried chickpeas and currants; dukkah-crusted mackerel with burnt aubergine yoghurt. Please that sweet tooth with a bite of chocolate and amaretto cake or fig and pistachio tart.
Lunch menus: £16.50-21.60
Soft drinks: £2.30-3.80
