Deli, bakery, salad bar supreme - Ottolenghi deserves every bit of praise it gets for its fabulous food. They have four branches dotted around London. Islington, Kensington Church Street and Belgravia all have their own Ottolenghi, but my favourite is the original, in Ledbury Street, Notting Hill.
There's one big table downstairs and a couple of stools at a bar by the entrance, but essentially, this Ottolenghi is the place to come for take-away food that is as far removed from your usual fat-filled cardboard wrapped in paper as you can possible imagine.
Favorite Dish: I can't imagine a single thing coming out of Ottolenghi's kitchen that I wouldn't like. Fabulous salads, brilliant patisserie, peerless meringues, melt-in-the mouth cheese straws - browse around the website and let the pictures speak for themselves. It truly is all as good as it looks.
