Another guest post from my wife Katherine.
See those little greenish accents of color in the cheese? Look closer. That’d be truffle oil. Mmm. With a name like The Portobello Organic Kitchen, on a street like Notting Hll’s Portobello Road you’d expect a mushroom pizza to hold its own. And boy did it. My friends Brian, Richard and I lunched there one day on my recent trip to London. As the name suggests, everything’s fresh, made that day using local ingredients.
Brian and I both had the pappardelle with a chicken and pancetta ragu. The noodles were homemade, the chicken tender, the pancetta chunks huge. And there were lovely carrot slices throughout. As for the dessert? Well just look at that toffee pudding. And the really great part was the main course specials, any pizza, the pappardelle or a porcini risotto, were just 10 pounds with a glass of wine.
