Julian Metcalfe, founder of U.K.-based fast-casual superstar Pret a Manger, has a new cookbook out featuring recipes from his new fast-Asian concept, Itsu. Think high-protein, low-carb salads, brown rice, sushi, soups and noodles — fresh food that tastes as good as it looks. Here’s hoping they open Stateside, and in the meantime, try out one of their most popular dishes.

This glorious tangle of herb-coated noodles is teamed with creamy avocado and crunchy toasted seeds. You can try out different sorts of noodles here — 100 percent buckwheat (soba) or sweet potato and buckwheat for a gluten-free dish, or skinny somen noodles for some extra bite.
