There’s a shiny new spot in Shoreditch; Essence Cuisine. This culinary concept is brought to us from LA celebrity chef Matthew Kenney. Everything on the menu is 100% meat, dairy, gluten and refined sugar free – and it’s all raw. They aim to demonstrate that plant-based, healthy food can be just as tasty and decadent as animal based. The slick and minimalist setting contrasts the vibrant colourful food, which is highly nutritious and highly photogenic. After an amazing Chocolate Chip Smoothie, we try an array of dishes. Highlights include the Heirloom Tomato Lasagna with Pistachio Pesto and Macadamia Ricotta (you won’t believe it’s not cheese) and the spicy Raw Pad Thai. With no room for dessert we grab a takeaway box of Raw Macaroons, which after some time to rest and digest, turn out to be our favourite thing. The staff are passionate and knowledgable and being as everything is made from scratch with the finest ingredients, it’s impressive that nothing on the menu is over a tenner. Rawesome.
