London, Notting HillJusu Brothers, for pan-Asian chill

By Lorna Patrick

Owned by the London Village Kids, a consortium of friends and business partners, Jusu Brothers is a blend of pan-asian food and freshly pressed juices.

It’s tucked away in a serene setting on the busy Westbourne Grove running through the heart of Notting Hill.

The setting

Jusu Brothers is at the quieter end of Westbourne Grove, far enough away from the hustle of Queensway and quieter than the busy shopping end of the road.


White tables with pale wood benches help create a calm and cool atmosphere along with fresh plants everywhere (even suspended from the ceiling) with industrial lights dotting the ceiling and bicycles and scooters leaning against the wall – all adding to the chilled out vibes.

The little things

Brimming with nature, Jusu has little cactuses perched on every table and huge wire baskets filled with bright red apples.

The walls are bare and whitewashed and there’s gentle music beating away in the background.

The menu is a healthy, creative twist on Japanese – think vegan sushi and an impressive menu of protein shakes.

The green and white teas on offer are extensive, including Sencha of Fuji (rich in antioxidants), Douceur Neroli (orange blossom), and Mistal Gagnant (raspberry flowers and grapefruit). There are also little ginger, beetroot, and wheatgrass and lemon shots on offer.

The green juice test

We asked for a veg-filled green juice and the friendly waiter suggested the Kyuri Cleanse – perfect for a hot London day. Bursting with cucumber, kale and celery, it was blended and pressed in front of us – simple but delicious!

What we ate

We came for an early lunch and there were plenty of free tables which quickly filled up as we sat. We tried the vegan sushi which was packed with veggies – rocket leaves, carrot, apple, sun-dried tomatoes, portobellos and avocados surrounded by tahini-dressed quinoa, all wrapped in a nori sheet and cashew dressing. It was pretty delicious!

 

We also chose an acai bowl which arrived in a beautiful turquoise blue ceramic bowl (they’ve thought of everything).

It included acai, guarana, blueberries, avocado, almond butter and topped with homemade buckwheat and hazelnut granola, pumpkin and chia seeds, bee pollen, goji berries and a squeeze of agave. Although we thought it could have been a little colder, it looked and tasted incredible.

What else?

The customers were an even mix of local residents and business people.

The big windows were wide open, fusing the chilled inside vibes with the warmth of London outside.

What made us glow?

The Kyuri Cleanse was so fresh and perfect for a hot summer’s day and free from fruit which was very welcoming! The staff were friendly and knew the menu which meant they could make helpful suggestions.

The menu is extensive and intriguing – the sort of place you would want to revisit to try everything!
