Honest Burgers is hot property right now, as a regular visitor to Brixton there is always a line to get in, a general buzz about the place at least in South London. The first thing I noticed was they play great music, Prince, … Continue reading
Antipodeans do breakfast well, they aren’t stuck in the awful fry up mediocrity that Britain can’t seem to escape. They embrace variety, and going out to brunch is a normal and common occurrence. I guess it comes with good weather and nice cities. … Continue reading
That’s the nicest tempura prawn I’ve had, it was fat, the batter crunchy and the prawn itself tasted great. The Salmon Sashimi at Centrepoint was cut much fatter than I’m used to, I nearly asked for a knife to make … Continue reading
We went on a Saturday night at around 9:30pm and the place was empty. Maybe burgers are over or maybe it’s the mediocre press MEATmarket has been getting. Having said that it was a cold night and MEATmarket is in … Continue reading
Banana Tree according to urbanspoon is the most popular restaurant in London. The cuisine is a mix of Thai, Malay and a little Vietnamese thrown in. The Vietnamese spring rolls were good, with glass noodles and vegetables. I prefer the … Continue reading
Even though I’m a Guardian reader I don’t spend much time in North London. So when a friend whose opinion I trust recommended the Bull and Last myself and three freinds decided to give it a try one Saturday afternoon. We started … Continue reading
I hate when Asian places give you a fork because you’re white. I’ll have you know i’m a god damn fucking expert with chopsticks. The Roti was delicious, crispy on the outside, moist and oh so soft in the middle. … Continue reading
London in general needs more places that aren’t fast food where you can pop in for a quick-lunch or dinner that’s tasty, fast and you don’t feel uncomfortable dining alone. I had the mixed mushroom Bi Bim Bap, served in … Continue reading
The waitor looked at me like I was talking Chinese when I asked for a Campari spritz. They eventually bought me Campari soda. They have procesco on the menu.
Scamorza affumicata con Funghi misti e Prosciutto di Parma
Char-grilled smoked Mozzarella served with Wild Mushrooms on a Bed of Parma Ham.
The entree was everything I love about Italian food, simple great ingredients. A great salty cured ham, mushrooms in a rich olive oil, chewy mozzarella.
Mezze Maniche con Melanzane, Pomodoro e Mozzarella
Pasta Tubes with Aubergines, Mozzarella Cheese, Basil, and Tomato Sauce.
The pasta was incredibly bland, the sauce was watery and lacked seasoning, it was too simple and without depth. The tomatoes lacked sweetness, they weree fresh when I think canned would have been a way better option.
Service was below par, surly and with no consistent waiter, for a tiny place it felt like 9 people served us.
Now at 1 Newburgh Street, Soho, W1F 7RB
The pulled pork is juicy and packed with flavour, the sauce is sweet and smoky without being sickly or there being too much of it.
Great coleslaw, which seemed to include a bit fennel or maybe that was in the pickles. I enjoyed both.
Location ain’t the best, maybe it was because it was a cold wet (typical) British summers day, but being under a damp windy bridge made me feel like a homeless person, without the rosy alcohol blanket.
