Review on Manna

Founded by Kate Alexander more than 40 years ago, Manna in Primrose Hill is one of the veterans of the vegetarian scene, a legendary venue that claims to be 'the oldest vegetarian dinner restaurant in England and possibly Europe'.

Quietly tucked away just steps away from the park with 'the greatest view of London', expect fine dining, international fusion dishes with emphasis also on English traditional favourites long ignored by the vegetarian status quo. Organic produce is used wherever possible and presented in fashionably modern style, dishes that could encompass starters like sesame and silken tofu with shoyu, chilli sauce and pickled ginger or beetroot, radish and sorrel gazpacho.

Moving on, there might be broad bean and Pecorino risotto with shiitake mushrooms and braised fennel, a pasta special, or stuffed artichoke hearts on roast polenta with cavalo nero and yellow pepper pesto. Desserts feature fruit crumbles alongside flashier ideas such as peach mille-feuille on cherry and Kirsch coulis. Wines, beers and other drinks are sourced with intelligence and an eye for eclectic interest.
