It is Friday again, and that means a little London update from me.
It has been a short week because of the Monday bank holiday, but I still managed to go out twice. On Wednesday I met Gaby at Busaba and enjoyed calamari and a crab pad thai. Delicious, and I really must say that this restaurant chain is great value for money. The food is fresh, tasty and cheap and although dining at communal tables with benches the interior is very pleasant with dark wood and burning incense.
Yesterday I met up with four girlfriends at da Polpo, where I have been before, and we had a great time as always. It is another great-value-for-money-place and it is nice to go out with friends for a nice meal without it being too expensive.
I have not made a weekly menu for next week, because we are going away, but during this weekend we will enjoy the following, probably:
- Nigella’s steak slice with thyme, jacket potatoes with sourcream and chives, provencale tomatoes and broccoli
- Crab risotto, probably trying this Angela Hartnett recipe
- Caramelized pork fillet a’la Gary Rhodes served with some kind of potatoes
Have a great weekend!
