Please note, Nama has now closed. Time Out Food editors, April 2018
Nama (full name: ‘Nama - Artisan Raw Foods’) may not be the cuddliest of vegan eateries – the staff and diners are far too cool for the hugging of trees – but what it lacks in warmth it makes up for in frighteningly good un-cooking. Rice is fashioned from tiny grated kohlrabi (a sweet cabbage); in the must-order ‘sushi’ this is combined with tiny pieces of cashew (for richness) as well as cucumber, avocado and sesame (for authentic flavours); in the Thai coconut curry it’s sprinkled with black sesame seeds and served with a creamy yellow-curry-ish sauce and folds of mandolin-thin pickled fennel. All against an austere yet stylish backdrop (stark white walls; high ceilings, throbbing low beats) that’s more art gallery than restaurant.
