Chriskitch Deli


Every once in a while somewhere new will pop up locally that makes my ears prick up and fuels my curiousity. It's not a regular occurrence up this end of London but sometimes it happens! 

And happened it did when a little family-owned deli called Chriskitch arrived in town.  It's the brainchild of Christian Honor, an Australian-born chef with 25 years experience who's worked across the world. This globe-trotting plays a big part in the menu with which he experiments with all sorts of different flavours. The food on offer changes daily and is dependent on what Christian has picked up in the markets around London's that week.

My lovely Mum was visiting so we decided to head by for lunch.

You'll find Chriskitch on a residential road in Muswell Hill. As you walk through the front door it feels a little like you're walking into someone's home. What you actually find is a table. A table full of wholesome deliciousness, fresh from the kitchen. And 'fresh' is definitely the buzz word to sum up Chriskitch. Glorious salads, home-made breads, succulent chicken legs, frittata (of which I got the last piece) and then the sweets; lemon drizzle cake, banana and caramel tart, chocolate and raspberry brownies. The soup had already sold out. We made our choices, took our seats and our food was brought to our table. And what a gorgeous lunch we both had, absolutely full of flavour, awash with herbs and spices, quite clearly made with love and care. Not tough on the old waistline either!

Aside from serving up their lovely food, the other aim of Chriskitch is to make their visitors feel relaxed and at home. Everything from the presentation of the food to the d├ęcor reflects this. It's a real gem of a place that's definitely worth the visit if you're ever in the area.

    1. I know I love the apple idea, they looked so appealing and i'm not even that bothered about apples! I will try and support you with the 'no bread' thing...although not nibbling before a meal will be hard! :) xx
