London: Indian Accent

fullsizeoutput_8040

As I mentioned in the Dishoom and Ghymkhana posts, this trip to London is all about Indian food! A few months ago I was at a lunch with an Indian family living in London and I asked for her list of best Indian restaurants. She gave me a list of 10 and I couldn’t wait for my next trip to London! Second to check off the list – Indian Accent!

Indian Accent may already sound familiar and it’s not suprise – the location in New Delhi is the #30 Best Restaurant in the World and the #1 Best Restaurant in India. To quote the Indian Accent site:

Indian Accent’s menu explores progressive ideas in Indian cuisine while maintaining traditional integrity. Chef Manish Mehrotra reinterprets nostalgic Indian dishes with an openness towards global techniques and influences.

Delicious!

Koen and I decided to order both set menus – meat and vegetarian – so we could share and sample everything. We both agree that the vegetarian menu was the best!
