Lunch At Delamina Marylebone Lane London W1

With our pup at doggy daycare, we seized the opportunity for lunch at Delamina, in the heart of Marylebone Lane, London, W1. Initially, I aimed for their Shoreditch locale, but no room was available. However, we were lucky to bag what must have been the last table at their Marylebone establishment. Initially irked by our seating right by the entrance, the arrival of our food magically dissolved any annoyance. It’s a testament to Delamina’s charm that even the least desirable table can morph into the best seat in the house. Owned by a couple, Limor and Amir, Delamina is a love letter to their Eastern Mediterranean and Tel Aviv roots. If you’re looking for restaurants on Marylebone Lane, the best places for lunch near Bond Street Station, or you crave Eastern Med cuisine, you’ll love Delamina.

Delamina Main Menu

Their main menu flaunted a captivating collection of vegetable dishes, so there was no reason to contemplate the meat or fish section. Everything sounded tempting, from the tabbouleh-inspired salad bursting with quinoa, fresh herbs, cranberries, sweet potatoes and roasted almonds, all embraced by raw tahini and black grape molasses. Meanwhile, the pita balagan features market-fresh produce, charred cauliflower, lemony crème fraiche, and a pomegranate molasses drizzle.

Our selection was spot-on, especially the velvety house hummus adorned with slow-roasted tomatoes, spiced to perfection and the addition of crispy onions.

One of our favourite dishes was the charred cauliflower with lemon-infused creme fraiche, pomegranate molasses and seeds.

Equally mesmerising was the grilled courgette, served in two variations, and a labneh drizzle that paired perfectly.

Another standout dish was the heirloom roasted violino pumpkin on a bed of whipped manouri sprinkled with almond and pistachio dukkah.

The rosary goat’s cheese salad was visually appealing, marrying roasted pears, caramelised onions, and a medley of seeds and leaves in perfect harmony.

Even the smaller dishes, like the crispy rosemary potatoes on a bed of garlic-infused yoghurt, left a lasting impression.

Though we bypassed the meat and fish offerings, I expect the tantalising descriptions of lamb baharat and chicken ras-el hanout would have appealed to any carnivore. Pescatarians will love the charcoal-roasted spiced salmon, seared tuna or king prawns seared with za’atar.

We shared two sublime desserts – the halva parfait and decadent dark chocolate and praline ganache.

We drank tap water with our meal as we intended to work when we returned home, although we never did! I noticed they had fresh mint tea, some exciting cocktails with aromatic ingredients and a thoughtful collection of wines.
