Here at UJ, we’re going heavy on the cosy, feel-good food. Pasta is always our go to when it comes to carbs, but making a not-so-subtle comeback is the good ol’ classic: bread. We’re never far from a bakery in this city, but there’s some new ones on our radar. Roll on…
Opening this month, Bread Ahead now has a permanant home on Pavillion road, and our sweet tooth is already craving their famous doughnuts. Bakers and co-founders Matthew Jones (Quaglino’s, Mezzo and Bibendum) and Justin Gellatly (St. John and The Green House) opened up Bread Ahead after their success at Borough Market, making the upstairs space a baking school with workshops and classes.

For those craving something more continental, famed Parisian bakehouse Maison Kayser has made its way across the channel for the first time. You might have seen Eric Kayser’s other branches (Paris, New York and Belgium) but his new restaurant and bakery on Baker Street (apt) is his first branch near us. Their sourdough bread rivals that of Polâine, and they also have chickpea, fig and walnut bread to get excited about. #showmethedough.

A slightly different but still very carby experience, the Berber & Q Shawarma Bar is dedicating the whole of January to PITA! Dan Doherty (Duck & Waffle), Tom Browne (Decatur), Miles Kirby (Caravan) and Sam Clark (Moro) are heading to the Exmouth Market kitchen on February 5th, and you’ll get a mini pita from each chef. We hear there’s music too… For a crispy duck shawarma or a lamb shish with chilli butter, you know where to go.
