Flatplanet @ Great Marlborough Street, off Carnaby Street

Carnaby Streetの北側、Great Marlborough StreetにあるFlatplanet。「ヘルシーなファストフード」を標榜、イギリス産有機栽培のスペルト小麦を使ったFlatbread(ピタナンのような平パン)に、チョリソ、モッツアレラチーズ、パンチェッタ、モロッコ風チキンなど地中海風トッピングをのせた、ピザのような食べ物が売り物。オーナーは、同じくヘルシー系ファストフードチェーン・Leonを立ち上げた人物。なるほど、店の健康志向コンセプトから、レトロで洒落たインテリアまでLeonとそっくり。私は、野菜と穀物をたっぷり使ったLeonのフードは、肉系の具の味を隠してしまって野菜の味しかしないので、肉好きの私には「健康的」過ぎて好きじゃない。それに比べ、Flatplanetのフラットブレッドは、パン自体はちょっともそもそしているけれど、具はフレッシュで美味しい。フラットブレッドの写真は撮りたてほやほやだけれど、店内の写真はかなり前に撮ったものなので、若干変わっているかもしれないのでご容赦を。

Flatplanet on Great Marlborough Street (just off Carnaby Street), is a fast food restaurant that offers a range of organic English spelt flatbreads with a variety of toppings inspired by mediterranean cuisine such as chorizo, mozzarella, pancetta and Moroccan chicken. The founder of Flatplanet is the same with Leon, another ‘healthy’ fast food chain. In fact, the two places look alike with their casual retro style interior as well as their ‘healthy fast food’ concept. I don’t fancy Leon’s food because they put too much vegetables and grains and I can’t taste my ‘meat’ – it is too ‘healthy’ for me. But Flatplanet’s flatbread was not bad – toppings were fresh & juicy, though spelt bread was rather dry. *A photo of flatbread is freshly taken, but I took the rest of photos quite a while ago, so it may have changed a bit.
