Pure Taste #Paleo Restaurant Launch

Having just completed my second round of Whole30, I couldn’t have been happier to have stumbled across the news of this restaurant opening!

Pure Taste Restaurant pitch themselves as “paleo friendly fine dining” but they don’t just cater for those who eat paleo. They cater for many different dietary restrictions including vegetarian, Whole30, autoimmune paleo and egg free! Their head chef, Holly Redman herself suffers from coeliac disease so understands where we are coming from!

I myself am lactose intolerant which when shared at dining experiences ends with me having to opt for the vegetarian option. I remember once being at a conference where they brought me out a plate of stir fried peppers for my lunch.

The evening was a combination of drinks, canapés and meeting new people (many, many nutritionists in the same room!). I was blown away by the food; I tried new things – scallops and quails eggs, had new variations on things I often avoid – donuts and key lime pie, and sampled some of the best wine and Prosecco I have had in a long time (from Nothing But The Grape). Second to tasting the food for yourself is taking a gander at the snaps I managed to get before everything was eaten up!

Rumour has it that they are booked solid until January! I plan on starting my third round of Whole30 in January to finish early Feb so I think I will have to book myself in for a celebratory dinner!

Pure Taste is located in London’s Notting Hill. Just the place if you are looking for a guilt free meal! Meet the new “cheat meal”!

Do you have food intolerances? How do you handle them when you eat out? Or do you have a favourite place which caters to dietary requirements?!

    I want to visit a place like this! I hope they can cater to my low carb/ketogenic needs too. But we don't have anything like this in Toronto. 🙁

      We'll never say never! Maybe you can make it happen?! That's always my solution! See who else in Toronto wants this! Pure Taste was started up by a kickstarter campaign too!

    OMG I WANNA GO! I cannot eat wheat, dairy, gluten, sugar, soy, nuts, fruit & eggs!!!! So eating out can be a tiny bit of a struggle… But I always find something with some modification 😉 I love that allergies, etc are becoming more popular in restaurants these days so there are more options for me to eat!

      Well I think realistically there are more and more of us with intolerances and allergies so of the restaurant / food market don't catch up they won't have any customers! It's always helpful when people are understanding at regular restaurants so you can still have a great experience!
