34-36 Exmouth Market, Clerkenwell, EC1R 4QE
Married chefs Sam and Sam Clark are behind this bustling gem of a restaurant, which sits at the heart of a lively Clerkenwell market street. Having just celebrated its fifteenth anniversary, award-winning Moro still holds its well-earned reputation as one of London's favourite dining spots, loved by critics and locals alike. The daily changing menu offers an inspirational array of dishes from across Spain, North Africa and the Muslim Mediterranean. Succulent meats and marvellously fresh fish emerge, deliciously smoky, from the wood oven which dominates the open kitchen. With crunchy, fresh salads and exotically spiced vegetables and pulses, each plate is vibrant with colour and flavour. Even the sourdough bread is spoken of with awe in culinary circles and Moro's rosewater and cardamom ice cream is a delicacy not to be missed.
