What the title says?
he may as well just go home?
i wish i'd never made that post
and you must be almost about to vomit via hangover before going there - pre requisite.
after suffering the most horrendous hangover, dragging my own lifeless body to café bliss, eating a hash brown and smoking a cigarette. suddenyly the world seemed better. especially after putting objects on a sleeping pigfoot's face.
Can't remember if it's cheap though.
I had fat prawns and olives and meat balls. Nice combo.
being inauthentic isn't a crime but tasting absolutely rank is.
you can order as much or as little as you like at the bar, the portions are quite decent and it's nice.
We spent £16 between two of us and had about 6 different things, and a coke each.
my new Sunday morning hang out.
But for dinner? Ummm..... not really. I can only think of really cheap stuff.. that isn't nice...
Is it an occasion?
I do like Macondo for cake etc... but for dinner?
Hmm - nope.. RIP The Bricklayers which used to have a cool Thai room upstairs under old management.
The Bricklayers USED to be good... upstairs.. I used to have lots of girls dinners up there a la Sex and The City style before tearing up Shoreditch. Sadly, it's a shit hole these days under new management.
just meeting a friend for dinner
Tay Do on shoreditch hi street...only been to the restaurant, but that and the cafe are probably run by the same people
They do a great lunch menu for £4.30, and the evening stuff is unbelievably good, and cheap as well. Near jaguarshoes
place in the entire area and my favourite.
I know Tay Do.. yes...
But Viet Grill is better - they just renovated inside too so it's quite a pleasant and calm atmosphere in which to eat.
I don't know that one. I have a terrible habit of enjoying a meal in one place, and only ever eating in that, and my slowly growing list of places I like to eat, which at the moment is
New Cultural Revolution (camden one...the islington one isn't as great)
That's it. I only ever eat in those places in London
and they both serve excellent food, I think Tay Do is cheaper and if you go to the Cafe on the West side of the road it's always teaming with people, it's got a nice atmosphere and you can take your own booze.
is my takeaway place of choice. for the friendliest staff go to hanoi cafe.
but it's owned by the loveliest people. :-/
wouldn't say the food there is the best but i like the atmosphere in that cafe.
I may try there or the one on Hoxton Square, cheers!
each restaurant has its own strengths/weaknesses so you have to go to a few to find a favourite, i like the Song Que best, which i think is the furthest away from the junction but it's worth the extra walk for the pho.
but the portions are quite stingy compared to the other vietnemese places and it's always so goddam busy!
their pho is the best i've had though, and that's pretty much all i order if i get vietnamese. it's fairly impossible to get a table for more than 2 people though i guess. and they visibly stiff anyone that isn't asian on the herbs.
love that place
and yes, it's awesome.. i have had champagne in their front bar... but i didn't pay.
plenty of good recommendations already
does really nice and very cheap thai food.
god, i love eating.
I shall now print this off and read it on the bus home, good work!
