Sitting pretty on Kingly Street is The Detox Kitchen, a quaint and charming little eatery filled with an abundance of delicious food.
As the world’s passion for healthy food is growing by the day, this London deli has built itself a foodie fan base – and it’s easy to see why. There’s nothing quite like walking into a cafe and seeing a colourful and vibrant spread of food staring back at you, and at The Detox Kitchen, whether its a super-juice or a salad you’re after, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Set up by the fantastic and innovative Lily Simpson, who strives to make ‘healthy meet delicious’- the eatery first opened after a huge demand for her home delivery packages, which have been praised by the likes of Elle Mcpherson and Millie Mackintosh.
The deli’s clean and fresh interior reflects not only its menu, but also its whole ethos. It champions food that is nutritious whilst also packing a punch – expelling the myth that healthy eating has to be boring.
Whilst it may not be the cheapest place to grab a bite, it’s definitely a luxury worth indulging in. The food is seasonal and exciting- offering dishes such as asian slaw, courgetti and roasted cumin cauliflower.
Plus, its pile-your-plate-high portions are a refreshing change from the frugal food that can often be found at similar venues.
It’s not just salads though. Their main meals are light, but they’re also seriously satisfying. From a burger, to an aubergine, to a filled egg wrap, their chalk board is etched full of healthy delights to choose between.
Simpson now has another branch of The Detox Kitchen on Fitzroy Place, and is also currently serving at Selfridges food hall. Plus, she’s released a (dreamy) ‘kitchen bible’ – so if you like the food, you can learn to make it all yourself when you get home!
The Detox Kitchen excels with its simplicity. It manages to make the humble vegetable the star of the show, and most importantly everything is GOD DAMN DELICIOUS.
If you’re up for a serious health kick, you can try their much acclaimed meal delivery service here.
