You know that the radars are on full volume when both Madame and Catherine get quiet, the pace quickens and you leave the Nottinghill tube station and head directly towards an unremarkable white building, simply called Otto Lenghi.

One of three retail outlets owned by the Israeli/Palestinian food guru and ‘now’ person, Otto Lenghi, the Nottinghill shop windows give a hint of the pleasures and ‘wow’ factor inside. Small, cramped and a ‘restaurant of 10 chairs, the staff are friendly, knowledgable and the food displays and tastes – virtually indescribable. Otto Lenghi has got it RIGHT. Completely.

If you’re wanting to have one of his salads for lunch, get there early. We did – 11h45 to be exact. It takes about 30 minutes to decide what you want because you basically want to eat the whole shop.

The shopfront – and that window!


We managed to get them to stand still for long enough to take a picture of two cheshire cats.


Which one would you like?

South Melbournians, this is GAS on steroids.
