UK’s first restaurant to use pure seawater opens next door to London’s Borough Market
‘O ver has now officially opened, serving healthy, delicious, genuine Neapolitan street food.
Combining the very best regional ingredients with traditional recipes, ‘O ver has opened in the heart of London’s foodie district, right next to London’s Borough Market and is the UK’s first restaurant to use the unique ingredient of pure seawater in its dishes; from their wood fired pizzas, fresh pasta, homemade breads, Neapolitan street food, fresh seasonal salads, vegan options and handmade traditional desserts.
Pure seawater is a way to season food while using less sodium chloride and boosting our consumption of trace minerals. Table salt is a salt that has been through a chemical process of purification and has been stripped of all its minerals.
Whereas pure seawater is naturally purified and micro filtered to remove bacteria and impurities, maintaining a natural composition of over 96 minerals which are beneficial to the human body including magnesium, potassium and calcium.
Obtaining pure seawater is not a simple process and requires specialist skills. It has a different composition, depending on the distance from the coast, the climate and marine vegetation and cannot just be drawn at random.
‘O ver offers a fresh stance on Italian cuisine in the city. Ideal for those looking for a quick cicchetti at lunch or a more relaxed meal in the evenings. Menus boast in season produce which the native Neapolitan chefs use to carefully and lovingly create homemade delicacies from.
Alternatively, those in need of an after work drink or somewhere special for a celebration can take a seat at the vast marble topped bar and look out across the restaurant whilst sipping on prosecco, Italian Spritz’, organic wines and craft beers.
