Ottolenghi Restaurant – Islington

Ottolenghi Restaurant - Islington

I’m a big fan of Israeli chef Yotam Ottolenghi. He has several restaurants in London and works with his arab friend Sami Tamini. They bring flavours together flavours from the middle east with new flavours and ideas.

This photo is a trip to his cafe style venue in Islington, simply called “Ottolenghi”. This is the shakshuka which is a North African dish of poached eggs in a tomato and vegetable sauce. Ottolenghi’s recipe is much more spicy and tasty than any shakshuka I’ve tried before. He uses spices including cumin and coriander for a really interesting dish. Here is his recipe if you want to recreate it yourself:
