Good Afternoon everybody! Today I am going to tell you about a great little cafe in Maida Vale. It is located on the very pretty Clifton Road opposite my favourite florist in the world, Absolute Flowers. It is the perfect place to go if you are in the area and are looking for a meal in between meals or simply to go for lunch. It is very relaxed and there are a few tables outside which are nice on the odd sunny day. I am going to share with you some of the best dishes on the menu. Don’t expect anything too fancy or complicated, just simple good food like you would have at home…
My favourite item on the menu is the salad Nicoise, again not too complicated, however all of the ingredients are so fresh and they bring the dressing on the side in a cute little pot so you can add all of the calories yourself. The portion is also generous and is consistently good.
The dish shown above is ‘Shish Raouls’ I think it is pretty self explanatory but if you are hungry and looking for something quick and easy it is perfect. The garlic sauce on the side is also amazing. I personally order it with a rocket and parmesan side salad as I like some colour in my food but it is definitely a big enough portion to have it alone..
The top image is the chicken schnitzel with french fries, it makes me feel like a kid again and is the perfect meal when you are hungover or just hungry.. Below is a healthier option which you can compose yourself and they are more than happy to do for you if you ask. It does have to be said that the service at Raouls can be a little hit and miss, so if you are in a huge rush I would recommend going elsewhere. If you do have time to relax and can look past the service then you will enjoy yourself.
I hope you all are having a great Sunday!
What Lauren Loves..
