There is something magical about fast food. As children, we considered fast food the biggest treat imaginable. But then we grew up, and realised that most fast food doesn't make you feel good or help you live well. So, we asked ourselves: why can't fast food be good food? Henry and I opened LEON, with our friend Allegra, because we wanted to prove that it was possible to serve food that both tastes good and does you good. Naturally Fast Food.
Our menu is inspired by the flavours, variety and natural healthiness of Mediterranean cooking. Both our families have Mediterranean roots, so this is the food we grew up with. There are some dishes that evoke our childhoods in Britain, too - and even those termly trips to fast food restaurants.
