EGGBREAK

30 Uxbridge Street, W8 7TA,
Notting Hill Gate

egg-break-loti

Eggbreak, a collab btween Ennismore, the peeps behind The Hoxton and Soho House, is a laid back little joint located just around the corner from Notting Hill tube station on a quiet residential street. Inside it’s pretty simple and light, but it’s the menu that makes it worthy of a trip. Themed around eggs (yep the clue really is in the name) there’s a good selection that ranges from pure filthy to healthy and light – hey this is Notting Hill people, they don’t all want deep fried and dirty! The McMuffin is the one though especially if you’ve got a hangover you need to shake. Get down for some eggs-tremely tasty dishes…and you thought we’d gone pun free.

ORASAY

Orasay, Kensington Park Road, London, UK
Notting Hill

Jackson Boxer’s Notting Hill restaurant, Orasay, is inspired by the Hebrides (it’s named after a tiny island within the Inner Hebrides) with a strong focus on seafood – lobster, crab, scallops, oysters, razor clams and langoustines and the like. Must orders from the starters include ‘fried bread with anchovies’ – warm pockets of dough topped with anchovies and a sort of zingy caper mayonnaise (you could eat these by the bucket load and leave feeling very happy indeed) and the round potato flatbread topped with smoked whipped cod’s roe and pomelo kosho. A lot of the other produce – leaves, vegetables, honey, and eggs – comes Jackson’s organic farm in West Sussex. Orasay is a great experience overall, with the quality of ingredients and cooking being very apparent throughout.

CARACTÈRE

11 McGregor Rd, Notting Hill, London W11 1DE, UK
Westbourne Park

Husband and wife team, Emily Roux and Diego Ferrari, are behind Caractère which opened in Notting Hill in the autumn of 2018. Emily of course is the daughter of Michel Roux Jr, and Diego has been head chef at  Le Gavroche for the past three years, but this is their first independent venture together. In reference to the restaurant’s name, the menu is divvied up into six character traits – curious (small plates/starters), subtle (veg-focused small plates), delicate (fish mains), robust (meat mains), strong (cheese) and greedy (dessert). Style-wise it’s a mix of classical French with elements drawn from Diego’s Italian heritage. You can go a la carte and choose dishes at random but they also have a tasting option that will hit all six sections for £78. As part of of what’s probably the UK’s most revered restaurant family, the pressure was certainly on for Caractère – and we’re happy to say that Emily and Diego have smashed it.

KPH

139 Ladbroke Grove, London, W10 6HJ
Ladbroke Grove

The KPH has long been a Ladbroke Grove fave and has quite the history, having hosted Tom Jones’s first ever gig and being a regular haunt for The Clash’s Mick Jones. You will find a pub on the ground floor with range of draft beers, cask ales, wines and cocktails at the bar, and a first-floor dining room. Henry Harris and Head Chef Ruairidh Summers (formerly of St. John) arein charge of the food, creating menus that are inspired by their shared love of Parisian bistro food plus influences from Montreal. Expect dishes like octopus carpaccio with almond and green sauce; turbot with peas, elderflower and lardo; roast Aylesbury duck with fennel and peach; and creme caramel. It’s not unusual ;)

MAZI

12-14 Hillgate St, London W8 7SR, UK
Notting Hill Gate

Mazi, run by husband and wife team Adrien Carre and Christina Mouratoglou, takes inspiration from traditional Greek food – tarama, tiropita, prawn saganaki, grilled octopus, stifado and loukoumades are all on the menu – but gives the dishes a modern spin, both in terms of flavour combinations and presentation. The wine list is all-Greek too so you’ll find bottles here that you likely won’t have seen before. On a sunny day, you’ll want a table in the garden…that way it’s much easier to pretend you’re on holiday in Greece.

EGGSLUT

Eggslut, Portobello Road, London, UK
Ladbroke Grove

You might have seen some Eggslut dishes appear on our social feeds over the past few years (they are one of our top foodie picks in LA) but now we can all get one a lot closer to home, with the launch of its first UK site, in Notting Hill. Don’t miss the signature dish, the Slut, made with a coddled egg on top of a smooth potato purée, poached in a glass jar, topped with gray salt and chives, served with slices of baguette. Or the Fairfax, a sandwich made with soft scrambled eggs and chives, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and sriracha mayo in a warm brioche bun (add extra avo!). The small chain now has six locations, most of which are on the West Coast of the US, but we hear they have serious expansion plans in the UK.

PATTY & BUN

14 Pembridge Road, London W11 3BU
Notting Hill Gate

Patty & Bun have conquered East London and extended their empire to West London back in 2017. The Notting Hill site sits 60 people and includes bookable tables for large groups. When it comes to the food, you can expect all the classics alongside some new sharing plates including ‘The Chicken Feast’; a medley of all their fried chicken and sauces. And with a full drinks menu, you can wash your burgers down with beers, cocktails, happy hour specials and milkshakes. Sounds like a winner.

ANDINA PICANTERIA

Andina Picanteria, Westbourne Grove, London, UK

Martin Morales, the man behind AndinaCasita Andina, and Ceviche has two new right next door to each other in Notting Hill. Inspired by family-run roadside restaurants common in Peru, Andina Picanteria serves a mix of small plates – an ancient take on ceviche called sivinche, and purple corn tamal with choclo corn succotash – and larger dishes like braised adobo pork leg, olluco potato locro stew, and Hereford sirloin with red pepper and Amarillo chilli escabeche. Like Martin’s other restaurants in town, the Picanteria is decked out in vibrant colours, rustic wood and contemporary art, so you’ll really feel like you’re in South America and not West London. Next door is Andina Panaderia, London’s first Peruvian bakery, with treats like Andean black mint bread, sweet potato sourdough, pastel de lúcuma and chicha morada muffins, plus Peruvian coffee, salads and brunch dishes

ULI

5 Ladbroke Rd, London W11 3PA
Notting Hill Gate

Asian fusion joint Uli is a real neighbourhood gem. It’s been around the block, first coming onto the scene in 1997 and their twists on Chinese, Thai, Malay and Singaporean favourites has kept Uli as a staple for locals and visitors for years. We love the Thai sea bass fillet steamed with chilli and lemongrass and the stir-fried beef fillet with spicy black pepper sauce, again with lots of red chilli, is also a beaut – sticky parcels of juicy meat drenched in a sweet and fiery sauce. For great, simple Asian food in Notting Hill, Uli is a great shout.

Guess who’s back, back again. Oh yes the original Rum Kitchen returned after a revamp with a new downstairs, private members bar where you can shake off all that food with dancing until two in the morning. Menu-wise it’s the same Caribbean grub with other dishes like a tropical sea bream ceviche and a roti pizza topped with jerk chicken and sweet potato. And if that doesn’t float your boat, they’ve got Jamaican brunch menu that will have you rum’ming out of bed at the weekends.

245 Westbourne Grove, W11 2SE

It specialises in both men and women’s designer clothes, as well as accessories and some homeware.

PORTOBELLO STAR

171 Portobello Rd, W11 2DY
Ladbroke Grove

The site on which the Portobello Star now sits has been serving up drinks and good times to Londoners since 1740. Nowadays it’s taken the form of a stripped back, contemporary bar that serves a damn good cocktail. If you’re feeling peckish, or need to line your stomach, they also serve snacks, sandwiches and bar food.

However, it’s not just antiques that you can buy – you can pick up fashion, both old and new, fruit and veg, collectibles, bric-a-brac and much more, and although Saturday is the main day there are stalls open during the rest of the week too.

THE MALL TAVERN

71-73 Palace Gardens Terrace, W8 4RU
Notting Hill Gate

For over 150 years, The Mall Tavern has been a mainstay of The Notting Hill community. It has changed hands numerous times and been through many incarnations, and the current Mall Tavern is a gastropub that takes great pride in its menu with old favourites sitting comfortably alongside more innovative dishes. The pub is divided in half with a very busy bar area in one part with the other being reserved for diners. The atmosphere is fun – the after-work crowd enjoying a drink gives the place a buzz that carries into the relaxed dining area. You can choose from pub classics, like fish & chips, beef & ale pie and ribs, and more restaurant dishes like pan fried sea bream with orzo, and they serve up a bangin’ Sunday Roast too.

COCOTTE

95 Westbourne Grove, W2 4UW
Bayswater Royal Oak

Not that London is short of cluckin’ chicken joint, Cocotte is one that’s doing it right. The healthy rotisserie serves up free-range birds from La Chapelle d’Andaine farm in France and it defo beats Nandos. With a simple menu, the marinated roast chicken takes centre stage and comes either whole, half or quartered. Succulent and flavoursome, it’s exactly what it says on the tin. But the real dilemma is choosing sides from the HUGE list of healthy salads including our fave, the Fernande salad with barley, pomegranate, feta, baby salad and spring onions to the less healthy truffle mac ‘n’ cheese and THOSE baby roast potatoes with chicken gravy. HUBBA HUBBA.

PEYOTITO

31 Kensington Park Road, W11 2EU
Ladbroke Grove

Tequila is to wake the living, Mezcal is to wake the dead…well that’s what Peyotito say anyway and we’re inclined to believe them. With exposed brick and a concrete bar the place has an industrial feel, but definitely doesn’t lack any Latino atmosphere and the modern Mexican menu defo delivers on flavour. It’s split into five main areas –
ensaladas, crudos, ceviche, moles and maza – but we rate the tostada de atun; yellowfin tuna, salsa macha and guacamole puree and the super soft mole de olla; short rib slow cooked in traditional dried chile broth. Then there’s the churros con chocolate because churros are ALWAYS a good idea and so is Peyotitio’s take on the margarita; spicy Tajin salt rim, Blanco tequila, Cointreau, agave syrup, lime juice and a sneaky shot of mezcal.

THE PRINCE BONAPARTE

Prince Bonaparte, Chepstow Road, London, UK
Westbourne Park

Well away from the crowds of Portobello, The Prince Bonaparte is a favourite hangout of well-heeled locals. You will likely see lots of people wearing sunglasses inside at any time of year and perhaps even the odd famous face. It’s not hard to see why it attracts such a crowd however, this place is bloody gorgeous with 1920s art deco interiors and a kitchen that has a Japanese robata grill – seriously where else in London would you find a pub with ar robata grill?!

ELECTRIC CINEMA

191 Portobello Rd, W11 2ED
Ladbroke Grove

One of the oldest working cinemas in the country, the Electric Cinema’s interior reflects its long history. Plus it’s one of the most comfortable places to watch a film, with double beds, sofas and armchairs for your viewing pleasure!

GRANGER & CO

175 Westbourne Grove, W11 2SB
Bayswater Notting Hill Gate

Granger & Co Notting Hill is the original restaurant in the family opened by Aussie Bill Granger in 2011. There are now two other branches in Clerkenwell and King’s Cross, and they all serve similarly eclectic menus that draw influence from across the globe. The menu is split into several sections – small plates, bowls and grains, big plates, and BBQ – and it’s one of those where you want to order absolutely everything. We find the most winners on the small plates but it’s worth a trip down for brekkie too…those eggs are good.

THE NOTTING HILL BOOKSHOP

13 Blenheim Cres, W11 2EE
Ladbroke Grove

Any film buffs amongst you may have already guessed the significance of this innocuous-looking bookshop. Yep, you guessed it. It’s THAT travel bookshop from the film Notting Hill. Having expanded its range since the iconic British film came out, it now sells books on a variety of different topics. It also has a blue plaque on the outside to commemorate the film that made it famous. It’s worth the trip for that alone!

Royal Oak Bayswater

This colourful California inspired gem brings a dose of the Golden State to Notting Hill. Entering through a jungle of potted plants to their vibrant interior decked out with multicolored furniture, you’re bound to feel those sunshine vibes. The weekend brunch is very West Coast, with lots of pressed and blended juices, coconut yoghurt, chia seeds, granola, acai bowls, buckwheat pancakes and spinach, but you can go for something not so healthy with buttermilk waffles, bacon and whiskey maple syrup.

THE ELGIN

96 Ladbroke Grove, London W11 1PY, UK
Ladbroke Grove

When the market gets a bit too much and you want to sit in the sun in Notting Hill on a weekend, this is the place. It’s round the corner from Ladbroke Grove underground and the outdoor space is right on the street across two sides of the pub which makes for great people watching. Usual suspects at the bar and a few craft ales. Grab a beer and take a seat. It’s that easy.

THE COW

The Cow Pub & Dining Rooms, Westbourne Park Road, London, UK
Royal Oak

Given the plush Notting Hill neighbourhood it’s located in, The Cow is pleasingly ramshackle once you’re inside. Supposedly the name comes from a previous landlady who was a bit of a cow, though now most of the cows are just pictures on the wall. They do a cracking pint of Guinness as well as oysters and some pretty posh seafood – this is still Notting Hill after all.

YOUNG LDN

228 Westbourne Grove, London W11 2RH, UK
Ladbroke Grove Notting Hill Gate

Young LDN is a salon designed with millennials and generation Z in mind with its cool decor, technology-led treatments and all round fun vibes.

Not only can they get treated professionally by the experts at Young LDN, they can also find some of the hottest beauty brands on the market all under one roof. That said, the salon also knows that being young is a state of mind and not just a number so it’s open to all.

TRAILER HAPPINESS

Ladbroke Grove Notting Hill

It’s retro, it’s kitsch, it’s tiki and it’s totally great at this Portobello Road basement bar and yes, they have been known to light drinks on fire. Go all out with a Supersonic Tiki Tonic (try saying that after you’ve had a few)…Bacardi Carta Blanca, St Germain elderflower liqueur, watermelon and cucumber shrub and tonic water.

BLUE TIT

255 Portobello Road, London W11 1LR, UK
Ladbroke Grove

Located on one of London’s most famous roads, the Portobello Road outpost of Blue Tit is the group’s tenth salon to open in the capital. The decor mirrors the salon’s neighbourhood as well as following in the footsteps of its sister sites, with bright colours, striking artwork and a rather cool patterned floor. And we love the fact that it’s open until 9pm on weekdays, making it that much easier to fit that cut into your diary.

SUGARING LONDON

32 Uxbridge Road, London, W8 7TA
Notting Hill Gate

This salon in Notting Hill is London’s first independent sugaring company, created with Instagrammers in mind – think millennial pink walls, cactus-lined shelves and wet wipes adorned with “I love my muff”. For those who don’t know what sugaring is, it’s an ancient method of hair removal using sugar, lemon and water to create a mixture that’s similar to wax. It’s said to be less painful because the therapist pulls in the direction of the growth and unlike wax, the mixture only sticks to the hair rather than the skin. It exfoliates the skin as it removes dead skin cells and leaves less ingrowing hairs as there’s no damage to the follicles. That along with the fact it’s completely natural and the most eco-friendly form of hair removal means we’re converts.

FARROW & BALL
