City Pantry's Healthy Hotspots
We've arrived, it’s the month of the feel-good food. No more starchy carbs and turkey sandwiches, the hard work begins. Don’t make it a time to hide inside with your jumper on - venture out for a guilt free meal at one of London’s fantastic healthy and vegetarian restaurants.
Here is a list of our top healthy hot spots:
Nopi (Restaurant, Soho)
Restaurant of Mediterranean chef Yotam Ottilenghi, the food comes with a less than modest price tag for the small-plated dishes. Each course is clinical and palate cleansing and while there are meaty options on the menu for the few which can still stomach it this New Year, emphasis is paid on the variety of Israeli inspired vegetarian and fish dishes.
£££ - Top end option (perfect for a healthy date night)
Good Life Eatery (Cafe, South Kensington)
This ‘sloaney’ hangout in South Ken is likely to be filled with fresh-faced athletic ‘nike legging’ wearing prepsters as it mimics a classic LA eatery. Whether you’re interested in the clientele or not, every menu, breakfast through to dinner offers an unrivalled experience for healthy and tasty food especially around brunch time. Even if you don’t sit in - why not pick up one of their in-house juices.
£££ - Expensive for a cafe but unrivalled taste and health factor (perfect for celeb spotting)
Grain Store (Restaurant, Kings Cross)
Well known by Londoners, this exciting new venture by chef Bruno Loubet in one of the City’s most up and coming areas was a highly anticipated arrival. Meat and fish feature on the menu again however are given equal billing with vegetables taking focus on the plate both visually and in taste.
££ - Mid priced,expect around £15 for mains (perfect for quality food in relaxed environment)
Savage Salads (Street Food, Soho)
One of our very own vendors, Savage Salads finds queues out the door when January comes around. Their aim is to serve gourmet fresh and healthy food with a twist. They prove time and time again that salads don’t need to be boring which could be your saving grace if you’re not traditionally one for leafy veg.
££ - Good value (perfect to order for lunch from City Pantry)
Bonnington Cafe (Cafe, Oval)
Our cheap eat option, you can eat at the Bonnington Cafe for £15 and get all three courses! Once a squat, the cafe still remains a home to a collective of chefs who change the menu regularly so you’ll never get the same meal twice which is a shame because they are all so delicious!
£ - Cheap (perfect for a total guilt free low spending and healthy)
