Ottolenghi in London

On Sunday we went for lunch at our friend's house, we had lovely oven sea bass with boiled new potatoes, absolutely delicious. Desert? Before going N and I went over to the incredible Ottolenghi in Islington. Ottolenghi is a magnifique place to have breakfast on weekends (hello big queue though!) or a light lunch from an incredible buffet selection. Yotam Ottolneghi is the brain behind this restaurants (4 in London) I would definitely read this interview and check some of his amazing recipes
If you are in London, visiting or living, check it out. Plus it's really pretty inside with anton chairs and big communal tables. Unfortunately we were in a rush, the Formula 1 was about to start and ahem we couldn't miss it... (well N couldn't) so I didn't have time to take any photos but check some that I borrowed below. Nice?

  7. Oh my yummy goodness. How could anyone be a vegan or a raw "foodie"?! When food looks this beautiful I throw all caution to the wind.

  21. Hi sweet pea, wow, this all looks divine! Are those little mini cheesecakes with the apricots on them? Whatever they are they look heavenly! I love all of the different salads too, the broccoli salad looks delicious, and I think I see something that looks like beets and feta perhaps? I am drooling over each and every one of these and am totally going to check out the recipes too. Promise we can go there together one day when I make it back to London, Helena? :) xoxo Hugs to you my beautiful friend!!

  27. Very much so! I actually had to run upstairs (my studio is downstairs) and grab a pastry and tea -- you made me crave something sweet :) this place is gorgeous.

  28. Ya sabes que en España se come fenomenal, pero yo hecho en falta sitios como este en los que el bufet está lleno de apetecibles ensaldas y platos ligeros... Aquí todavía se va de bufet libre para pegarse el atracón, y las ensaladas no triunfan, con lo cual las buenas ensaladas brillan por su ausencia jajaja...

    besitos
