CURATING LUXURY FOR THE DISCERNING TRAVELLER

Zela London: New in Town

Zela London: New in Town

Elizabeth Finney discovers ‘Meppon’, the Mediterranean cuisine at Zela with a Japanese twist

I settle down at a black marble table in one corner of the cavernous Zela restaurant, which is softly lit and peppered with deep green palms. Tropical foliage lines the arched windows like salt around the rim of a Margarita glass and the open kitchen hums with activity. The menu is expansive, and I excitedly nibble on edamame as I peruse its pages.

Zela is the home of what’s been dubbed the ‘Meppon’ cuisine, a carefully curated blend of contemporary Mediterranean flavours and traditional Japanese techniques. The realisation of this is a stunning menu of large and small plates, perfect for sharing. “We have worked with Michelin starred chef Ricardo Sanz, Spain’s leading expert in Japanese food, to develop the cuisine,” explains co-founder Abel Matutes. “In the making of Japanese food, the technique is so precise. We admire this level of detail and we are all Spanish so we have a passion for Mediterranean flavours. We think this is something new for London.”
