Between Meals / Nopi
26th October 2012
Last night we went to Nopi for a treat with our lovely friends Flo and Luke. Last time we were in London we managed to get a table at Ottolenghi (we love their cookbooks!) and the food was just so good, so we were inspired to check out Nopi this time. It has a very similar style and vibe to Ottolenghi (they’re both run by Yotam Ottolenghi) and the food was as good and as unusual with crazy ingredients combined in weird and wonderful ways. The only downside? Bad, bad espressos.
Nopi – London
What we ate: (or more like what we didn’t eat!)
There were 4 of us and as we shared everything we really got to taste an amazing range of flavours. I ordered the Valdeón cheesecake, pickled beetroot and thyme honey to start and the Whole twice-cooked baby chicken with lemon myrtle salt and chilli sauce for a main.

What we drank:
Cocktails and wine. I had a Saffron Chase, which was made with Chase English gin, Chase elderflower liqueur, lemon juice, saffron syrup & Champagne. (ohmygod!) and we had a lovely bottle of Italian red.
Aside from the awesome food, the bathroom was by far the coolest one I’ve ever been in. Check out the shot above! Wow.
