Mildreds

Mildreds took my tummy’s preference number one as the tastiest vegetarian restaurant in the Soho district.  A bustling cozy space, in demand and not taking reservations – you can expect to wait a few minutes even if your visit is not during a prime meal time – but it’s oh-so-worth the wait.  My favourite dish from the ordered items was, the Sri lankan sweet potato curry with roasted lime cashews, pea basmati rice and coconut tomato sambal.  This dish is even better than it sounds – just the right amount of curry taste topped with crunchy roasted cashews, yum! Me and my friend pretty much devoured it and sang its praises.

The Imperial

The Imperial offers a modern chic bar and restaurant as well as a beautiful garden patio space.  Most recommended for leisurely lunch with friends, a quick solo lunch during the week is also common over here.  To nourish my brain and skin, I opted for a salmon sashimi and avocado plate – delish!  Bonus: The herbs and produce from their in-house garden will most likely show up on your plate when in season.

Daylesford

An award winning restaurant, Daylesford is my favourite organic restaurant in Marylebone.  Why? They offer real food with most of the menu’s ingredients taken from their own organic and sustainable farm, friendliest staff, white cozy ambience and mouth-watering dishes to boot.  Their team really seem to gotten the entire healthy concept with motto such as, “Eat to be healthy: Choosing super-healthy nutrient dense organic meals like these, give your body the goodness it wants for health and happiness.”  What’s there not to love?

Nama

I so thoroughly enjoyed everything on my scrumptious lunch plate so much so that if my time in London had allowed me, I would have come back to try everything on Nama’s menu.  Every bite was “wow”, “mmmm”, “oh my~”‘; this place is that great.  Dare I say, Nama’s Chocolate Heaven Smoothie was arguably the best chocolate smoothie I have ever had in my life!
