London is one of the best places in the world to live for foodies, with restaurants of every stripe on offer across the English capital. One of the growing trends within the city’s culinary cognoscenti is plant-based eating: the latest in this long line is none other than Spinach London, a new opening down on Lordship Lane in East Dulwich. With a creative menu designed around vegetables at its core, you’d hardly notice that meats only feature on several dishes; shining the spotlight onto the spectrum of flavours which greens and legumes can offer. Head on over to this South London establishment to savour some of the masterpieces and don’t forget to book in advance.
South London is surrounded by superb dining destinations, from Caribbean cafes to neighbourhood curry houses, with no small number of Italian eateries and Chinese classics as well as international favourites of every kind in between. What sets Spinach London apart, however, is not the provenance of their cuisine, but that of their ingredients. Vegetables take centre stage in its mostly European-influenced dishes, without compromising on one iota of taste or flair. Purple cauliflower and romanesco is topped with golden raisins and ricotta; and don’t be surprised to find your order of jerk salmon presented with fried plantain, grated carrot and coconut slaw at this East Dulwich restaurant.
Spinach London’s menu is seasonal and ever-changing, but you can be sure of the eponymous leaf making a more-than-regular amount of appearances. Take the London Overground to East Dulwich station and wander along Lordship Lane to treat yourself to its exciting plant-heavy offerings. We’d like to talk you through the menu, but instead we’ll simply say that you have to experience it for yourself: book a table at Spinach London, where it’s never been easier to eat your fill of greens.
