Cocotte

Published by Lucrezia Worthington — 2 years ago

Having recently bought my new camera ( !!! ) all I wanted to do is take it for an adventure and explore my beautiful London. There’s something about getting a new camera that makes you want to see all the areas you have already seen just to retake photos of them. Well at least that was it in my case, so I went to my beloved Notting Hill with my boyfriend and spent a good 3-4 hours going around every corner of Notting Hill taking photos. It had got to well after lunch time and we were starving, in fact I was getting quite grumpy; I remembered having a look through various blogs looking for a good looking place to have a bite to eat around in Notting Hill. One of my favourite bloggers Freydefleur (and one of my closest friend’s friend [complicated I know]) wrote about Cocotte in her blog and it really drew me in. Not only because her writing is super awesome but also because the photos of this little restaurant made it look like a perfect little eating spot. So I dragged my boyfriend to Westbourne grove after our little adventure and walked in to Cocotte.

The first impression you get is Modern. There is something about the atmosphere which is very new and rustic – it is not your typical restaurant. It is not a very spacious restaurant however this gives it a warm and cosy sensation, meaning you can actually speak to each other without the loud background noise. The interior is very London chic with white wooden tables, marble countertops and a brick wall. The open kitchen adds to the experience as you can closely watch how your food is being processed.

Cocotte is a healthy chicken rotisserie opened up by a group of Parisian friends who thought to bring us tasty, healthy chicken dishes available to eat in and to take away. Their chicken is from a  free-range farm in La Chapelle d’Andaine in France. They marinate the chicken for 24hours in a combination of secret herbs and spices which really leave the chicken tasting succulent.

The menu includes 3 chicken sizes: whole chicken £22, half a chicken £12, a quarter of a chicken £7) and a range of homemade sauces for £1 which add some flavour to your dish. My boyfriend and I shared a whole chicken with the garlic mayo sauce which was a really good combination.

Cocotte does a variety of sides and salads. Two sides in particular struck my fancy: the Fernande which is barley, pomegranate, feta cheese, baby salad and spring onions or (the one we chose) Raymonde which is quinoa, bulgur, yellow pepper, cherry tomatoes, peas and dried grapes. They have a variety of other sides that include mac & cheese, ratatouille and green salads. If you are not in the chicken mood you can also order a salad as your main for £9-11 and chose your toppings.

Their deserts also sound delicious, however I was too filled up on my main to be able to consider a desert. However their choice of mochi sound like a perfect way to end your meal.

We were lucky enough to find a table as we entered just as one table had almost finished, but if you are thinking about going I would recommend you reserve a table online : http://mycocotte.uk/reservations/
