The M restaurant chain – created by the now-Gaucho chief exec Martin Williams – is bidding to make its Victoria site the world’s healthiest restaurant this January, even introducing an air sterilisation system in a bid to clinch the title.
M Victoria has transformed its Raw Bar into an area of health and wellbeing, offering diners a gluten-free “good-gut” taste of Korea menu devised by executive chef Mike Reid with wild fizz kombucha cocktail pairing.
The menu features crispy kimchi pancakes, steak tartare, egg yolk, soy and Korean pear, as well as Korean dumplings with fermented chilli and spring onions and barbecued beef bulgogi.
While offering a detox menu for January is not unique, the restaurant believes it has got one over its rivals by installing a cutting-edge Radic8 air sterilisation technology.
The unique filtration system removes all three categories of air pollution including dirty air (dust, pollen, cigarette smoke), sick air (bacteria, viruses, mould) and toxic air (chemicals from traffic pollution).
“The new system will create a safer space for people will allergies and asthma, as well as killing all airborne viruses such as flu and the common cold,” the company stated. “It should also improve the taste of Mike’s already delicious menu as taste is greatly affected by smell which in turn is reduced by pollution in the air.”
M claims the installation of the system puts it in contention for the title of the world’s first ‘We Share Clean Air’ restaurant.
