SquareMeal Review of Essence Cuisine

This all-day, plant-based concept boasts an entirely meat, dairy and gluten-free menu and fits right in with the young and trendy Shoreditch crowd. Early risers can enjoy pick-me-up coffees with the likes of quinoa porridge, or raw pancakes with candied walnuts and vanilla coconut cream. Come lunchtime, a range of eat-in or grab-and-go salads are available, while evenings see more substantial dishes including heirloom tomato lasagne and raw pad Thai. Save some room for dessert, as there’s lime cheesecake with a ginger crumble base, and a chocolate brownie made from raw cacao ganache and Himalayan salt. The drinks menu includes an in-house range of organic, cold-pressed juices and nut milks. Choose from the likes of Intense Green (cucumber, celery, kale, lemon, parsley, spinach) or Intense Roots – carrot, apple, beetroot, lemon and ginger. If you’re not totally devoted to healthy eating, you can enjoy a cheeky organic wine or a cold-pressed cocktail.
