A few months ago, my foodie chum, my partner in crime, my chocolate sauce to my pudding decided it was a great idea to leave me and go overseas for a few months/indefinitely.
Even the most decadent, most filthiest, most delicious cake wasn’t enough to cheer this sad little bean up.
Ceru is a tiny new Mediterranean restaurant that has set up shop in Fitzrovia for 5 months only. It has previously been causing a stir up popping up and down the country. Tom Kime is the executive chef working his magic there, slicing and dicing (he has previously worked at River Cafe, Le Pont de la Tour and Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant).
So you know that you’ll be in safe hands.
2) Fadi – Fried baby courgette puree with tahini, roasted garlic, yoghurt & lemon

4) Houmous Topped with Chickpeas, Green Chilli & Lemon – Chickpea puree, tahini & lemon
Ice Cream Baklava – Pistachio Nut Ice Cream, Roast Nut Brittle & Burnt Honey Custard
Yoghurt Walnut & Pistachio Cake served with Vanilla Poached Apricots.
These two desserts. Combined. YES. Please can I have some more?
The food here was mind-blowingly delicious, affordable
Ceru is an ideal place for friends as the portion sizes are generous enough for sharing. It also helps that the staff there are incredibly friendly and make you feel right at home.
Yummei’s 9/10 Quick head to Ceru before April before it disappears and goes galavanting around the country again.
