As I write this post, I’m munching on the yummiest white chocolate with dried strawberries I have ever tasted (5th photo), courtesy of Ottolenghi, the place to go to in London for healthy snacks and not so-healthy but mind-blowing desserts.
Ottolenghi has around 4 branches around London but I only managed to go to the one in Knightsbridge. The place was quite tiny with one big round table to share with others. And its stripped-down and all-white décor made the mouth-watering food counter with its legendary colorful salads on display the center of attention. The portions of the Mediterranean-inspired salads served were quite big as well, so make sure you share your salads. If you haven’t been there yet, you have to try their almost tabbouleh salad and their caramel and macadamia cheesecake (last photo). Sooo good that I bought the owner’s (Yotam Ottolenghi)best selling cookbooks in an attempt to create the same taste back home…. I’ll let you know about that later.
