The Fried Chicken Roll had the most amazing batter, herby and complex, it was KFC but leagues ahead. The patty melt was how I remember McDonalds used to taste when I was young and dumb, heavily seasoned and served on thin cut toast … 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
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
Lucky Chip have a residency at the Sebright Arms until the end of March 2012, otherwise you need to follow them on Twitter (@Lucky_Chip) to find the location of their van. There seems to be a backlash against the burger … 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

This place is rough and ready and being in the middle of Brixton you can trick yourself into thinking you’re abroad. The pork and vegetarian tacos had great simple flavours with nice soft tortillas. The servings are quite small so … Continue reading
The broth of the Pho is nice, the beef seems of a better quality than what you usually see in Pho, this is probably why there is not much of it. It came with a decent amount of spring onions … Continue reading
The BBQ Pork Banh Mi comes with a generous amount of pork with a punchy lemon grass smack of flavour, but may have been a little over cooked. Really good fresh crustly baguette, I understand it’s not the traditional rice … Continue reading
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.
