Giraffe Restaurant is just a stone’s throw (30 seconds) away from Belsize Park tube station on Haverstock Hill. I had dinner there with a friend last month and went again for dessert the next day - something I had missed out on the evening before as we had been in a bit of a hurry. I had a Farmers Market Vegetable Burrito for dinner. The filling consisted of roasted vegetables, black beans, feta & herby rice and the burrito was topped with adobe sauce, cheese, tomato salsa & crumbled feta. It was served with a salad. Everything tasted really good, I loved the feta and vegetables in my burrito and my friend really enjoyed her Falafel Deluxe burger too. The only thing I didn’t like was the onion in my salad as I don’t like onion, but that’s of course not the restaurants fault. Giraffe, you made two Vegetarians very happy!
It’s situated on Kings Road, perfect when you’re hungry and tired from shopping, which wasn’t why I first noticed it though. I first went there with a friend who insisted on going there with me. And thank god I gave in to her, or else I’d probably never have discovered my favourite restaurant! Whenever I’m in the Sloane Square area now, I always pop in for an Italian pancake, which is my favourite, and a fresh orange juice. They also have amazing “My Old Dutch shakes”, you should try the belgian chocolate and the nutella shake!
