DJ Asad Naqvi and former trader Rahil Malik are opening a healthy food and cold press juice concept called SHOT in London this spring with plans to roll it out to further sites if successful. 

SHOT, which stands for 'simple, healthy, organic and tasty', will open on Bride Lane in St Paul's this spring, serving breakfast and lunch. 

The 16-cover site's menu has been created by the company's executive chef Darrin Jacobs, owner of Luc's Brasserie in Leadenhall and nutritionist Alice Mackintosh with all ingredients chosen for their health benefits. 

Dishes, prepared and cooked on-site, will include Baked sweet potato and quinoa falafel and Spicy chicken pho made with a homemade bone broth, sous-vide chicken and sweet potato and buckweat noodles. A selection of cold pressed juices, shots and smoothies will also be served. 

Naqvi and Malik, both self-confessed healthy eaters, came up with idea after being dissatisfied with the 'healthy' options available to them when eating out and ordering takeaways. The pair hope to attract city workers looking for healthier breakfast and lunch options. 

Naqvi said: “I have always stood by the notion that the key to life is balance. We at SHOT have built our brand on this very principle. We have worked tirelessly over the last year to develop a menu that is nutritionally balanced, delightfully flavoursome, and uncompromisingly transparent." 

A spokesperson said that plans for further branches of SHOT are in the pipeline although no sites have been yet confirmed.
