LeonInside 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.
