Lunch at Cocotte Rotisserie – Notting Hill

Notting Hill London | Karoliina Kazi

The Notting Hill spirit will leave you feeling relaxed and energised. There is so much colour and character; charming cafes, pastel coloured houses, trendy little shops and of course, the bustling restaurants and serious brunching culture.

Notting Hill:n olemus saa sinut energiseksi ja rentoutumaan. Naapurustossa on niin paljon väriä ja luonnetta; viehättäviä kahviloita, pastellivärisiä rakennuksia, trendikkäitä putiikkeja ja tietenkin vilkkaita ravintoloita ja alueen totinen brunssi kulttuuri.

We walked along the pretty streets, soaking up the first signs of Spring and passing few of our regular haunts.

Kävelimme pitkin kauniita katuja, nauttien kevään ensimmäisistä merkeistä ja ohittaen muutamia meidän suosikki brunssipaikoista.

With us, one stubborn little girl, Annie, refusing to go this way, or that way.

Mukanamme yksi erityisen itsepäinen pieni tyttö, Annie, joka kieltäytyy menemästä sinne, tai tänne.

Annie can’t be bothered to queue up, not today.

Annie ei jaksa jonottaa, ei tänään.

Following Annie’s nose, we finally arrived at Cocotte Rotisserie, on Westbourne Grove, that we had heard so many good things about.

Seuraten Annien vainua, saavuimme lopulta Cocotte Rotisserieen, Westbourne Grovella, josta olimme kuulleet monia hyviä asioita.

Annie approves. According to her and her wagging tail “You would be barking mad not to come and eat at Cocotte”.

*She may have been motivated by a bowl of succulent chicken offered by a lovely member of staff.

Annie hyväksyy. Hänen haukahduksen ja heiluvan häntänsä mukaan “Olisi hölmöä jos et tulisi syömään Cocotteen”.

* Annien lausuntoa mahdollisesti motivoi henkilökunnan tarjoama kulhollinen mehevää kanaa.

The menu at Cocotte Rotisserie is simple. You can choose from either a full, half or quarter of a chicken, plus sauce, salad and side dishes. We chose to go with a half chicken and 2 sauces (truffle mayo and spicy). Rotisserie Cocotte’s chickens are marinated for 24 hours with their secret recipe and served piping hot. The meat is tender within and crispy on top. 

Cocotte Rotisserien menu on yksinkertainen. Voit valita joko koko-, puoli- tai neljännesosa kanan, plus kastikeen, salaatin tai muita lisukkeita. Päätimme tilata puolikkaan kanan jaettavaksi ja kaksi kastiketta (tryffeli majoneesin ja spicy). Rotisserie Cocotte marinoi kanaa 24 tunnin ajan heidän salaisella reseptillä ja kana tarjoillaan sellaisenaan. Liha on mehukasta ja pinta rapea.

A delicious side salad of sweet potatoes, pine nuts and tahini dressing.

Herkullinen lisukesalaatti, jossa bataattia, pinjansiemeniä ja tahinikastiketta.

Lisukkeeksi täyteläinen tryffeli mac n cheese.

After lunch, we walked between the pastel coloured houses towards Kensington Gardens.

Lounaan jälkeen kävelimme pastellivärisien katujen läpi kohti Kensington Gardens puistoa.

After a couple of hours of walking and admiring the blossoming gardens, we headed home as the sun set over the white-washed terraced houses of Notting Hill. 

Muutaman tunnin kävelyn ja kukkivan puiston ihailun jälkeen lähdimme kotiin auringonlaskiessa valkoisten Notting Hill:n kattojen ylle.

    Karoliina your snaps are amazing. I absolutely love Notting Hill.

      Thank you x Notting Hill is so pretty in the Spring, can’t wait for full bloom when it gets even more gorgeous 🙂

  2. 13th March 2017 / 12:02 pm

    Wow! This place looks so lovely. I’ve never been to Notting Hill and have always wanted to visit, but I ended up doing completely touristy things when I’m visiting London. Maybe next time.

    • 15th March 2017 / 9:25 am

      It’s always good to get the main sights out of the way on the first visit and then you can see different things next time. Notting Hill isn’t going anywhere so it will be here for your next London visit 🙂 x

    I’ve always loved Nothing Hill. Such a gorgeous and romantic place, since the movie I’ve dreamed of living there! Awesome food you had too xx

    • 15th March 2017 / 9:24 am

      I think there are some kind of Notting Hill movie tours still going around 🙂 Food was great and Spring coming in makes me so happy!

  4. 13th March 2017 / 4:56 pm

    Notting Hill on niin ihanan näkönen mesta! Siellä on pakko päästä kyllä joku kerta piipahtamaan 🙂

    • 15th March 2017 / 9:22 am

      Aivan ihana ja varmasti tykkäätte kun tuutte! Kannattaa vaan pysyä poissa Portobello Roadilta viikonloppuisin (tai ainahan siinä kannattaa piipahtaa) koska siellä on ihan hurja tungos.

    London’s culinary scene has really blossomed (forgive the pun) since I lived there 23 years ago! The only place I remember with a queue was a Japanese restaurant and now I can’t remember the name!

    • 15th March 2017 / 9:20 am

      Your pun is on point 🙂 New restaurants are popping up every week, its hard to keep up!

    • 15th March 2017 / 9:18 am

      The interiors are wonderful and the whole place just has this friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Thank you Andrew & Fillia x

    Oh that’s just so gorgeous. I can’t believe how far along spring is for you – we still have snow 🙁 Ah – to be in London!

    • 14th March 2017 / 7:57 pm

      That’s one thing I will definitely miss from here once we move to Finland. We had 15 c and sunny skies today.

    • 15th March 2017 / 9:14 am

      Thank you Ivana – its so pretty, I love the turquoise tiles against the flowers.

    Your pictures are so beautiful. And that flower shop is straight out of a movie set! I love visiting your blog for the pictures you put up!

    • 22nd March 2017 / 12:59 pm

      Thank you so much!! I love taking pictures – but I have so much to learn 🙂 Taking my first ever short course this weekend 🙂 That little flower shop, Wild at Heart” is gorgeous.

  9. 15th March 2017 / 5:41 am

    I adore the inside of that cafe, the furniture has such character and makes it look like it would have a great atmosphere.

    • 22nd March 2017 / 12:57 pm

      It was really stylish but so relaxed – and they loved our little Annie which immediately makes us loyal customers 🙂

    One of my favourite areas of London but to be honest haven´t been there for a while. Looking forward to return soon to see the pastel houses and the magnolias in bloom.

    • 22nd March 2017 / 12:55 pm

      We’re there all the time only because we live in West London, but I know what you mean… There are so many areas and neighbourhoods that we also love but hardly visit – London’s so huge!

  12. 17th March 2017 / 10:31 pm

    What a beautiful place.. I’m also craving for chicken now.

    • 22nd March 2017 / 12:47 pm

      Their chicken is delicious, definitely check it out and try.

  13. 20th March 2017 / 9:40 am
