KOOKOO is an exciting new deli located in the heart of Camden. We prepare all our dishes daily applying different influences and techniques from around the world. Our philosophy is all about using fresh and healthy ingredients to give us all our unique and delicious flavours.
Some of our exciting plates include curry roasted cauliflower, cannellini beans with pistachio pesto and smoked Applewood dressed baby gem with pickled onion and apple to name but a few. Alongside these dishes, choose your protein base, with options including beef rump with chimichurri and free range Cajun roasted chicken, as well as vegetarian and vegan choices, and pair with two or three salads of your choice to eat in or take away.
The idea came as chef and owner Simon Whiteside struggled with fresh healthy and quick lunch options in the area, and with an abundance of local businesses and offices in the locality, he felt there was a definite gap in the market for a concept like KooKoo. With a background working in fine dining kitchens across Dublin, London and Italy, and now focusing on the casual food scene with his other projects Hook and Mr Ji, he set about taking on salads.
The offering will be ever changing with a big focus on sustainability, using high quality and seasonal ingredients and with the team taking inspiration from their own multicultural backgrounds, to keep Kookoo an exciting and unique addition to the local food scene.
