Absolutely amazing salads!

My new favourite place is Rainforest Cuisine. I first tried some of their aboslutely delicious salads/flans (which are all gluten-free, sugar-free etc - just lots of seriously tasty vegetables/salads all bound together with themselves) at the farmers market in Lyric Square in Hammersmith one Thursday, and then I discovered that they do Spitalfields on Wednesdays and Sundays and seeing as how I work near there it's become my Wednesday treat!
The food is all so colourful - a lot of it is Caribbean - and it's also all raw and organic and living so it's incredibly healthy...
They also do great cakes - again all gluten/sugar-free etc - made from bananas, dates, cashews, coconut, sultanas etc.
They also do Chelsea market on Saturdays, Alexandra Palace on Sundays and Wednesdays at Swiss Cottage.
If you live anywhere near any of these places, or even if you don't, you should definitely try some of their stuff. The mung bean and lentil salad is especially good.
It's £5 for a salad box, or a (huge) piece of flan and 3 different salads - topped with wonderful homemade hummus and either tomato or spicy sauce.

Leon add gluten-free labels

Just a quick update - Leon have added the symbol 'GF' to their menu so that you can easily and quickly see what is gluten-free, as well as wheat-free, dairy-free etc... hooray! Makes it even easier to decide what to have off their extensive and coeliac-friendly menu - yay!
Also - they have just changed from the winter menu to the spring one and there are loads of new things to try - delicious.
