London may not be the birthplace of gourmet food but it definitely is a mecca for great food. Those who are looking forward to eating salad not only as a side dish but a scrumptious main course will find restaurants in the capital that serve just that. Here are three of the best salad places in London to enjoy a healthy main course.
The Modern Pantry
The Modern Pantry is a go-to restaurant for many vegetarians and vegans, and for good reason. The restaurant’s menu is always full of new and exciting ideas, and that includes its great array of salad dishes that have evolved over time. One of its best sellers is a salad that includes Buffalo mozzarella, roast peach, lemon roast fennel, and the most scrumptious walnut lavosh. Nothing beats the freshness of salads in The Modern Pantry and it has built a regular clientele up because of its consistent brilliance.
Don’t be fooled by Pod’s “fast food” tagline. Food here may get served fast but they’re definitely healthy-minded. If you’re craving for some curry but want to eat it with green vegetables instead of rice, they have the Go Green Miso Salad with Chicken, which is made with broccoli, kale, peas, sugar snap peas, coriander, lettuce, and a yummy miso dressing. Fish lovers will find the Oak Roasted Super Salmon Salad amazing since it has a nice balance of mixed leaves and a healthy slice of salmon.
Mayfair may be home to some of the most exclusive casinos in London, luxury boutique shops and corporate headquarters but it’s also a place where people can grab great food prepared by some of the best chefs in the world. World-renowned chef Wolfgang Puck opened CUT, which is a sleek, contemporary steakhouse at 45 Park Lane. The Los Angeles Times awarded it Three Stars, as it is one of the few restaurants out there that elevate the combination of steak and salad on a plate. CUT has a nice variety of salads ingredients to choose from including Neal’s Yard goat cheese, fresh heirloom tomatoes, white anchovies, and a lip-smacking 50-year aged balsamic vinegar.
