Broad­way hits from waf­fles to teriyaki tofu

The Jewish Chronicle - - WINTER FOOD SUPPLEMENT - BY VIC­TO­RIA PREVER

WHETHER YOU are Hol­ly­wood healthy or pre­fer a New York style of nosh, Mill Hill’s Broad­way of­fers a meal for ev­ery oc­ca­sion. Here are my five star spots and what to or­der there:

1 BREWED AND PRESSED Open since June, this café is all about health. Not that you will feel de­prived. Saad As­lam, the owner, spot­ted the con­cept — gluten-free, dairy-free and re­fined-sugar-free drinks and snacks in a slick en­vi­ron­ment — in Dal­las.

As­lam (who co-founded HCMedspa, a lux­ury beauty-clinic chain) sees this way of eat­ing as in­vest­ing in your­self.

Or­der: a turmeric latte — such a trendy su­per­food that I wanted to hate it but found it oddly com­fort­ing, from its bright yel­low hue through to the black pep­per and chilli top­ping.

The quinoa trio (white and red quinoa, sweet potato, broc­coli, edamame, cherry tomato, omega seeds, pick­led red onion with a tahini or­ange dress­ing) is warm­ing and tasty and re­ally good topped with melt-in-your-mouth, teriyaki tofu.

Pro­tein shakes are a sig­na­ture drink and the café also of­fers raw pressed or­ganic juices. It is not cheap but you will leave feel­ing saintly.

2 THE CREAM­ERY

Also ar­rived in the past six months, this is heaven for lovers of dessert —and the an­tithe­sis of Brewed and Pressed. On the menu are dough­nuts, ice-cream, milk­shakes and crêpes.

Natasha Matthews, the owner, was in­spired by her time work­ing in Amer­ica. Ice-cream is ar­ti­san-made to or­der by lo­cal sup­pli­ers and in­cludes two ve­gan flavours made with rice milk.

Bestsellers in­clude the Oreo; Kinder Bueno; Peanutella and plain old Mada- gas­can vanilla. The Cream­ery’s win­ter ice-cream flavours will in­clude mince pie and gin­ger­bread.

Or­der: a dough­nut gelato sand­wich — as in­dul­gent as it sounds; it is ice-cream sand­wiched be­tween two dough­nut halves (drool). The yeasted dough­nuts are baked in south west Lon­don and are made by the sup­plier to Sel­f­ridges and Patis­serie Va­lerie. Look out for bub­ble waf­fles — waf­fles with a bub­bly tex­ture that you fill with ice-cream.

3 YUMMIES

All the Jewish deli favourites can be found here in this sec­ond branch of the Radlett restau­rant. Lawrence Sa­muels serves up Yummies’ own chal­lah and bagels along­side gefilte fish (chopped and fried); her­ring (schmaltz and chopped, with or without sugar); smoked salmon and a range of Is­raeli su­per­mar­ket sta­ples.

Although not pre­pared in a kosher kitchen, the chicken soup is made from kosher chicken.
