Whole Foods - Kensington, W8

This is probably old news to a lot of you but I’ve still not been in London that long so I’ll keep it brief.  I must admit though that I've fallen somewhat in love with a shop.  Whole Foods on Kensington High Street stole my heart and then my wallet as well... 

This small chain (by American standards) only has a few outposts here in the UK and I wish I’d found out about it sooner.  The Kensington branch is just down the road from us and despite the crowds its proper foodie heaven.  It really does show you what a supermarket can be if you put a bit of thought into it.

Shopping aside I’m loving the food hall at the moment as well.  I’m not going to pretend it’s the best food in the world but it knocks the shit out of a Morrison’s fry up.  Perfect to help you refuel on a hung-over Sunday morning this definitely needs to be the first port of call before you take on the mammoth task of the weekly big shop!

The Mexican stand upstairs serves tasty food in typically American sized portions.  The Quesadilla was good but filled with some fairly tame Chilli beef but if you are looking for value for money go for the Taco!

This deep dish of a shell filled to overflowing with whatever your hung-over mind fancies falls well into the realms of Tex-Mex.  Purists probably need not apply but for a tenner between the two of us I don’t know where else you can buy so much tasty food? 


  1. I like that place, but rarely (if ever) get past the cheese room. Like you, it hit my belly, then my wallet, super hard...

  2. The cheese room is pretty sweet but I'm loving the meat counter as well at the minute. Best selection I've ever seen in a supermarket and much better prices the Selfridges Food Hall!

  3. And the only place for a half decent burrito in the area! It definitely ain't bad.
