Nama Foods in Notting Hill, London is one of the most exciting experiences I’ve had in my life. Born into a typical Croatian family, my tastebuds were never exposed to anything beyond Croatian and Italian cuisine. I tried sushi for the first time in my life at age 26 so it’s fair to say, growing up I was a very fussy eater and not very adventurous with my food. Over the years as I’ve been exposed and invited to some of the finest cuisines and restaurants, my curiosity around food has increased and I’m finding myself naturally eager to try new things. Nama Foods and the whole “raw food movement” is a very unorthodox experience for me but as I’ve gotten older and my body less forgiving, I’ve becoming increasing aware of the advantages of this lifestyle.
On Saturday I met with two girl friends from Australia and we headed over to Notting Hill for lunch, totally forgetting that Saturdays in Notting Hill are like Primark every single day of the week… nightmare. Plus, the the weather was a little chilly and I came unprepared, leaving my wool coat at home.
So what did we eat at Nama Foods?
Kale chips coated with vegan cheese
Blueberry Pancake Stack with coconut ‘mascarpone’
Spicy Mexican mince, layered with guacamole, pico de gallo, probiotic cashew sour cream, shredded lettuce & carrot all rolled into a courgette & flax seed wrap.
I had the Italian Pizza- Walnut & courgette crunchy pizza crust, covered in our rich tomato sauce and macadamia ‘ricotta’, topped with sliced black olives, marinated mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, caramelised onions and a sprinkle of almond ‘parmesan.’ A very ambitious choice by me my friend told me and an excellent one I can confirm.
Fresh mint tea.
Chocolate Ganache Torte | We ordered this again.
Along with the pumpkin pie, which made me question what my problem with pumpkin always was?!
