Lunch on a workday can be tough. You want something healthy yet filling, enough to carry you through the rest of the day. You want something new, yet nothing experimental because time and focus are limited. You want something close by, yet not too close because you need the walk…Or am I only talking about my own needs at noon? Because on paper, that sounds a bit complicated. And yet, there are places catering to such demands, and here’s a new one: Stella.
This one placed on my list of ten new places you need to try, but has actually been on my to-eat-list much longer. Precisely since the first pictures of their complex salads made by the two chefs, Johnnie Collins and Tommy Tannock hit my instagram feed. Both equipped with rockstar-names, both from UK, both very dedicated foodies, and you already know at least one of them: Tommy is one of the founders of street foodie party Bite Club.
What they serve up in The Store Kitchen is what I want to eat for lunch literally any day, and it’s actually very close to how I like to cook myself. However, I rarely manage to do one of those plates, not even thinking of making more than one variety, and at The Store Kitchen you can choose out of a selection of seven! Creative salads, that is.
