The Mae Deli

 The Mae Deli - 21 Seymour Place, London, W1H 5BH

Ever since Ella Mills (Deliciously Ella) revealed that she was opening a deli with her husband, I knew I wanted to visit. I really do love Ella, have both of her books, love her recipes and have followed her blog for years, so I knew that the next time I was in London, I'd definitely have to go to her deli!

The deli covers breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks (breakfast being served all day), and all of the food follows on from Ella's philosophy. The only difference being that some meat is served, which would definitely help attract a wider audience as a oppose to just plant based eaters. For lunch and dinner, you can have a 'Mae Bowl' which is either a cold salad or hot dish. The cold salads are compromised of 4 things - each of which you pick. For example, you could pick from maple roasted sweet potato, minty quinoa, roasted veg with paprika; basically whatever the dishes happen to be that day! The hot dish could be something like Thai green curry!

Even though we went for lunch, I actually chose to have breakfast. Breakfast is my favourite meal, and as I was only there once, I went for porridge with almond butter, fruit compote and banana slices - which was amazing. Again, the breakfasts work in a similar way in that you pick the toppings you want when you get there.

There is also a range of juices, smoothies, milks, coffee, and sweet and savoury treats, which all looked too good to eat really!

I think the only problem I have with this deli, is that it's only a small place and I can't go to London every time I want to go so hopefully this could be something that could branch out further north? Fingers crossed, eh?!
