I’d been looking forward to lunch at Nama Foods all week. For most of us, when Friday hits we’re in desperate need of some rest, relaxation and regeneration so what better way to kick start it all with lunch at the new raw food haven that is the holy gluten-free-raw-grail of Notting Hill?
I met my lovely friend and journalist extraordinaire Harriet Compston (Condé Nast Traveller) at 1.30PM for what we thought would be a one-hour lunch. We ended up leaving at 4PM. Of course we had lots to catch up on and discuss but, unfortunately, that wasn’t the reason for our two and a half hour luncheon. Nama Foods has become so popular and getting a table – even when you’ve booked in advance as we’d done – is a challenge. No wonder Rosie Londoner pitched up with her “chap” and very hot girlfriend at 3PM – she knows when to come to avoid the chaos.
Verdict? I love love love the food here. Sure it’s a bit like waiting for Christmas getting a table and your food, but all good things come to those who wait and customers here knows it! With the delivery service on offer too, I have a feeling this is going to be a regular thing on my Notting Hill agenda. Nama-ste.
