I love the middle eastern cuisine! Ever since I got introduced to chef Yotam Ottolenghi and his delicious deli by the same name in Notting Hill and his veggie restaurant Nopi, also in London, I’ve been a fan!

The craze hasn’t really won over Copenhagen yet, but if you’re in London, The Palomar is definitely worth a try.

Situated in the bustling and busy Soho, it’s the perfect place to dine if you’re going to the theatre. If not, go here anyway, because the food, vibe and drinks are all over great!

Go for the Kubaneh (pot baked bread served with tahini), something from the raw bar, the Shakshukit (deconstructed kebab with yoghurt) – but whatever you do, don’t dare miss the aubergine side dish. The condiments to it might change by the season, but the aubergine is a keeper. As you know, I never met an eggplant I didn’t like, and this is a new favourite. Aubergine or eggplant … Two names, one love!

Though you might need a translator to read the menu (I know I did), the dishes at The Palomar is a taste of something fun and refreshing – everything you need for a great night out.

Pssst … I’m not the only one in love with this place, designer of danish brand Heartmade, Julie Fagertholt, is a fan too!
