, is, as you might imagine, a healthy little new venue which is popping up all over London.


At the core of the lunch bars is a healthy eating ethos, based on the name; the meals only contain vital ingredients, which make the meals healthy, what some may term 'clean', and real.

The food is a mix of raw vegetables, fresh juices, and wholemeal wraps, freshly tossed salads and portions of nuts. I like to think of it as healthy, happy food.

I visited Vital Ingredient earlier this week when I caught up with a friend in central. It's only round the corner from Oxford Circus station, right around the back of Topshop and a street, directly behind the store.


I opted for the raw wrap, which was a delicious mix of raw vegetables wrapped in a wholemeal wrap and dressed in a light balsamic and mustard concoction. It cost £5.00, which is a bit more than I'd be prepared to buy for a random cafe, but it was delicious, and kept me full for hours.

operates between the typical city trading time, so you won't be able to visit post 5pm, but for a healthy and wholesome lunch I've yet to find anywhere else that has such a fresh approach to midday meals.

Beware of queues between 1pm and 3pm, but, trust me, the food is worth waiting for.
