New Foodie Hub

Notting Hill Gate

Tucked away just behind Notting HiIl Gate, there’s a foodie hub brewing. Joining the likes of the excellent Greek siblings, Mazi and Suzi Tros, as well as Eggbreak, who have frequent menu collabs and a new look, are three great new-ish spots to note.


Kuro is starting a bit of an empire. There’s Kuro Coffee, with their much-loved specialty coffee, matchas and teas, Kuro Bakery for designer baked goods like sea salt focaccia, honey, spelt and sesame sourdough, and vanilla sakuro croissants, and Kuro Eatery, which becomes Kuro Wine on Thursday-Saturday nights (5-11PM), with wines and small plates.


First came Los Mochis, the Pan-Pacific, Mexican-Japanese two-floor emporium, with a restaurant and Agaveria lounge, on Farmer Street. Then came their subterranean sister bar around the corner, Viajante87, with a bar menu, low lighting, and great cocktails. And now, there’s a hidden six-seater omakase, Juno, inside Los Mochis, that has immediately garnered rave reviews. Find it if you can!


An instantly recognisable building, Akub is located in an olive green townhouse on Uxbridge Street. Modern Palestinian cooking with British ingredients is what they do here, in an elegant, cosy dining room. Their menu is divided by land, sea, and meat; their wine list has many wines from Palestine, and their interesting cocktail list has things like a za’atar martini and sage negroni. A great addition to the neighbourhood.
