Perfectly Instagrammable interiors and delicious wide-ranging food options

Time Out Says

NOMAD isn’t a vegan restaurant, but you’d be forgiven for thinking it is, as this painfully-cool eatery has a huge plant-based menu and caters to a number of diets, including gluten free.

In fact, this restaurant isn’t satisfied by just offering everything from beef to tofu, it also features a mix-and-match menu from across Arabic, European and east Asian cuisines.

If you head here for breakfast, you can choose western classics such as scrambled eggs or croissants, or opt for zaatar manakish.

Lunch and dinner options are even more diverse, ranging from nachos and pizza to bao and poke bowls.

The portions are generous – we fail to finish the grilled superfood salad with pomegranate, walnuts and dried cranberries – and the mix of ingredients definitely aren’t every day combinations.

In most places, we wouldn’t dare order a veggie burger, as the standard offering is almost always something you would find at McDonald’s – which is to say a bland mash up of sweetcorn, onion, carrot and potatoes.

Instead, the quinoa falafel burger here has a great texture with a perfectly crunchy outside, and is complemented by the sundried tomatoes and kale below.

Dousing the burger in the hot sauce provided isn’t necessary to enjoy this burger, but we would definitely recommend it.

The smoked beef short rib bao – recommended by the waiter – is delicious too, and is wolfed down alongside the panko-crumbed chicken breast version.

To top off a fantastic meal, the interior of the restaurant is perfectly Instagrammable, with plenty of plants dotted around the tables and floor and flowers hanging down from the ceiling.

Head here for great food, a romantic date night, or if you're with a group of friends with awkward and wide-ranging tastes and dietary requirements.
