Paddington is getting all shouk up, Middle Eastern style
Food has to be seen (and tasted) to be believed. The goat's milk and date panna cotta with seasonal fruit, kataifi pastry and pistachios, for example, is a work of art. To complement its creative breakfast delights, the café offers a range of lunch menu options, all with delectable flavour combinations, such as honey roasted chicken, artichoke and fennel salad.
Specials such as seared scallops with almond crumbs and tomato salad, and eggplant topped with tahini sauce and pomegranate are equally impressive. As are the drinks such as limonana, a blend of lemonade, mint, sugar syrup and ice, which tastes are fresh as it looks.
