Monday the 20th of March was the first day of spring and with Mother’s Day just a few days away we are really excited to receive your booking at Zayane. Since it’s the first Sunday of Spring, why not spend the day in Notting Hill with the family rather than just coming in for a delicious and fragrant Moroccan meal? With the sun shining there are plenty of activities and things to do around Zayane… so what are you waiting for?
Start your day in the park
A morning walk by the lake in Hyde Park is a great way to kick off the day. Children can feed the ducks, geese and swans while playing around the grass. Kensington Palace is just a few minutes walk from Notting Hill and there are several exhibitions and family activities worth trying out. Make sure to check the website and book in advance for the “Explorers mission” where children participate for free! If you are looking for an outdoor experience, the Diana Memorial Playground is also a great option featuring a huge pirate ship where kids can climb.
While walking down Portobello road you will find some really nice shopping opportunities. From antiques and jewellery to children’s clothing, the market’s stalls are definitely worth visiting. While you are browsing the stalls, your little ones can enjoy some of the market’s food specialties and all time children favourites like waffles or crepes with chocolate.
Visit the Electric Cinema
If you are a fan of the theatre, make sure to catch the afternoon kids movie show at Electric Cinema. It is located on Portobello Road and it will definitely give you an unforgettable cinema experience, since this is no ordinary movie theatre. Its interior decoration is really special and when it comes to the seating plan you can choose between an armchair, a bed or a sofa! This time of the year tickets for “Beauty and the Beast” are available.
Moroccan Feast at Zayane
As your walk down Portobello Road comes to an end, it’s just about time you’re your Mother’s Day feast at Zayane. Our new Spring menu is made from seasonal and locally sourced ingredients and offers fresh, spring flavours like the fish tagine with carrots, peppers and potatoes or the chicken tagine with olives and carrots. If you ask our Chef, his recommendation would be the lamb tagine, one of his specialties. There are plenty of vegetarian options available that would also make great dishes for children, especially our sweet potato tagine. For dessert, the apple crumble with vanilla ice cream is a spring classic and for the little ones we have 4 different flavours of biscuits.
So parents, what are you waiting for? Book your activities in advance for a Mother’s Day of fun and let us take care of your meal!
