Leon is a new rapidly growing fast food chain. It specialises in dishes that try to balance healthiness with taste … expect lots of quinoa, brown rice, peas and “superfoods” hidden within.
I’m a growing fan. I first sampled their food in a City branch, but didn’t realise quite what they were offering and left disappointed. I’ve since grown to appreciate their vision, and sample three good dishes – the Kale Cesar salad, the Chargrilled Chicken & Chorizo Superfood combo, and the Chicken Tagine. These are all reasonably priced at £4-£7.
I would recommend their new South Kensington branch to anyone looking for a quick bite, that isn’t too heavy on calories or junk. I expect it will do well, but five competing gelato shops and a cookie shop surrounding this branch might suggest “health” isn’t a priority to the locals.
