The Art of Mindfulness Colouring at Scandi-inspired KuPP this March
5 Merchant Square
I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about colouring books recently, mainly that they relieve anxiety and help clear the mind. KuPP have come up with the genius idea of combining their Scandi-inspired menu with colouring in between courses this March.
When being seated I was handed a book containing different colouring sheets. The trick is to pick the right sheet or else I might have given up half way through. The traditional owl picture inspired me most so I set about racking up the crayons for my purple and turquoise colour scheme – it was an avant-garde colour scheme, granted. After a few minutes I realised just how into colouring I was, not least because I got to enter a competition at the end of it.
My friend arrived and it was time to order our starters. We shared Goats Curd & Beets and House Smoked Pork Meatballs. The meatballs were without a doubt the star dish of the evening. They come in a small pot covered with sour hop mustard gravy which we mopped up with fresh chicory salad leaves.
After our starters we continued with our colouring sheets – there are prizes to be won after all! For main I had a half Robata Grilled Native Lobster & Garlic Butter which came with skinny fries. I had some Buttered Kale on the side too. The lobster was plentiful, sweet and basically faultless. The kale was a little on the buttery side, but nothing a cycle home wouldn’t fix.
It was great to feel like a big kid again. I gave in my purple owl with pride. ‘Lucy – aged 28’. The food at this casual dining restaurant is well worth heading to Paddington for, especially during Easter weekend for a bottomless brunch and Easter Egg painting. Grab your crayons – and get creative!
