Look forward to a melting pot of international flavours in fresh, flavoursome dishes at tashas in Hyde Park.
The food here is almost always guaranteed to be fresh and tasty. Each high-quality ingredient stands out in well-conceived and executed dishes. Many dishes are inconspicuously healthy, without any compromises on flavour.
The Food for Thought and Healthy Appetite menus are specially geared towards nutrition. So you could indulge in bacon rösti with forestière (mushroom) sauce for breakfast, or try a healthy porridge of linseeds, sunflower seeds, coconut milk, bananas and dates.
Instead of going for one of the meaty pastas or gnocchi, there’s a delicious zucchini spaghetti with seared salmon, chilli and baby spinach. Or feel virtuous eating a whole-wheat chicken wrap crammed with sprouts, cucumber, carrot and radish – a dish bursting with texture and flavour.
Apart from staples of sandwiches, salads, pastas and burgers, there’s an alluring offering of comfort dishes like shepherd’s pie. More adventurous options include the aubergine, beef and yoghurt crumble with tomato and pomegranate molasses and pine nuts. Ingredients such as pulled pork, quinoa, panko and tahini bring together a melting pot of international influences, while the ice creams and cakes are an artform of pâtisserie.
There’s a well-chosen selection of local wines, as well as some lovely French bins and Champagnes (including Dom Pérignon if you want to splash out). Craft beers and an exotic cocktail list, as well as decadent smoothies and gorgeous granitas using ingredients like elderflower and rose syrup, complete the drinks offer.
The service is generally smooth and slick. They are also happy to make tweaks on dishes to cater for special needs such as those with celiac disease.
Hyde Park Corner mall is known as the land of the rich and famous and tashas is a great place for celeb spotting. Despite being located in the lobby of the mall, they’ve managed to create a ‘restaurant’ ambience with French cafe décor and sofas.
The macarons are to die for.
