Everyone on the planet remembers Homer Simpson's quote "you don't make friends with salad", this may be the case if you are struggling to piece together a tasty low calorie meal before you hit the hay after a long day in the office. Many Londoners, who are accustomed to a very busy lifestyle, are interested in quick, easy, get-up-and-go meals to fill them up whilst not spreading them out. Places like Pret-a-Manger and EAT provide these solutions, however if you have the extra quid or two I recommend you hit up La Bottega, which gives a whole new meaning to the concept of a salad.
La Bottega, situated on Lower Sloane Square in Chelsea, is home to possibly the tastiest, freshest salads on the west side. Each morning the chefs whip up flavoursome mixes to adorn the glass display. You decide your palate pleaser.
Edamame beans with salad onions and sundried tomatoes, fresh rocket, avocado and a boiled egg tickle your fancy? How about throwing in some tuna and sweet corn? A handful of snow peas and diced capsicum, topped with salt, pepper and balsamic dressing will make your mouth water.
