There's a new Moroccan restaurant in town and it's worthy of note, particularly because of who they have in the kitchen. Zayane on Golborne Road has as its Head chef Chris Bower, who was previously running the show at Michelin-starred Thackerays in Tunbridge Wells.
It describes itself as a modern Moroccan restaurant, promising a menu that "combines the vibrant flavours of authentic Moroccan cuisine, with modern culinary techniques and European influences."
Taking a look at the menus, in practice that means dishes such as:
- Pan fried scallop chermoula with chickpea, tomato and cumin
- Quail pastilla with carrot and sultana slaw, mango and orange blossom dressing
- Spiced Sussex beef cheek with caramelised onion, prune and sesame
- Butter poached lobster with carrot and cumin cream
They're putting on a set 'working lunch' for just £15 for two courses with dishes like Seafood Tagine, Saffron potatoes, baby root vegetables, seafood bisque and Spiced Aubergine Gratin, wilted greens, caramelised goats cheese and there's also an afternoon tea available featuring sarnies and Moroccan biscuits.
Zayayne is now open (but on softs until 1 March 2016) at 91 Golborne Road, London, W10 5NL
