Fashion entrepreneur Camilla Al-Fayed is to open a ‘one-of-a-kind’ plant-based restaurant in London.

Farmacy will serve ‘healthy comfort food’ with a twist, including vegan burgers and ice cream sundaes.

Camilla – who is the daughter of former Harrods owner Mohamed Al-Fayed – is hoping to expand Farmacy in to a series of grab-and-go outlets around London.

Michelin-trained chef Joao Ricardo Alves will be heading up the kitchen, with an all-day menu free from dairy, refined sugars, additives and chemicals.

“Seeking a healthy and alternative lifestyle I was inspired to create Farmacy; a destination to share my philosophy that putting nutrition first does not compromise good food and good times,” said Al-Fayed.

An on-site Alchemy bar will serve a range of drinks with medicinal benefits, using cannabis oil, cayenne pepper and flaxseed.

The Westbourne Grove site will also feature a large bar, booths and a private area to host parties, yoga classes and book signings.  

Already a successful businesswoman, Al-Fayed has been chairwoman of fashion brand Issa since 2011 and sits on the British Fashion Council Advisory Board.

Farmacy will open at the end of April 2016 at 74-76 Westbourne Grove, London, W2.
