LeonThis branch of Leon is a great find, tucked away behind Tate Modern in IPC media's headquarters, The Blue Fin Building. Once you've fed the soul with art and culture you can feed the body with good-for-you food. Inside might look like a fast food joint - and the food is served in shoots, like McDonald's - but there the comparison ends. Rather than greasy burgers you get grilled chicken wraps, slathered in aioli; spicey, succulent kebabs spiked with chilli; Moroccan meatballs, scented faintly with cumin and served in a thick tomato ragu. Believe me readers, it tastes good. Of course, there's so much more than meat, including plenty of veggie options too, like the extra-healthy (and rather tasty) salads made with Super Foods (broccoli, rocket, sprouts etc). All the food at Leon's is seasonal, well-sourced and, where possible, local. It's not totally organic, but it's all free-range, which means you get well-flavoured food that tastes like it should. This is the kind of restaurant that London needs. Healthy, tasty food served quickly. Whether its a full meal you're after, or just a juice (ginger and carrot comes highly recommended) this place will put a smile on your face. Very highly recommended.
