Let me introduce to the place that I not only love the most right now but even makes London, which is my new temporary home, for me a much more enjoyable place. It truly has become a benediction to me and although it is very different to any place in Berlin its atmosphere reminds me very much of my old home base.
Hidden from the noisy tourist streams of Covent Garden, Wild Food Cafe lays embraced by colored houses and lots of greenery in 1st Floor of Neal’s Yard. Like an Island of colorful bliss it is giving way to delicious raw and vegan food art.
The food served is freshly prepared by the lovely staff, aaall of them look very happy and loving. You can watch them while they prepare your food because the kitchen is centered in the middle of the tables. It reminds me of my old commune that I used to live in (yes me the ol hippy kid 😉 ) just because of the large tables where everybody sits together and of course the many arty and alternative people.
This combination of atmosphere and my favorite food: raw, tasty, colorful and prepared with love, is what makes this place so outstanding according to me.
Now let’s get to the menu. What I tried first were the smoothies. They only have two kinds: green smoothie and chocolate smoothie, both raw with lots of superfoods. Therefor they cost 6 pounds which is an alright price for the amount of superfoods used. I do hope they get a larger variety though.
Next is a starter menu or a snack for in between: Raw Coconut cheese with wild olives and raw bread. This was really delicious and is about 5 quid altogether which makes it very affordable.
The next time I went we had the big orders: Wild Food Burger and Ayurvedic Rainbow salad. The small Salads on the menu turn out to be amazingly big and all the wild herbs and superfoods used are simply great. I would not make so much effort to make a salad like that at home so once in a while this is an amazing treat. The Burger was great too. Intense flavors and happy tummy
I really love how they decorate everything so nicely like with dried edible wild flowers! For Dessert I want to return as quickly as possible because I want to taste the humongous wild berry raw choc cake. I saw it and it looks mouthwatering! We only treated ourselves with some very yummy raw chia seed, cacao and goji berries balls
What I found to be very special is that they do homemade nut butters in large grinders which peacefully grind next to you while you’re eating 🙂
They also offer raw food cooking classes if you’re interested in that. And there’s also a blackboard where you can find out about workshops, events, healing of all kinds and sorts.
Hope you find an opportunity to visit this amazing place and love it as much as me.
Peace, Love & Happiness
