During the London Restaurant Festival, happening throughout October, a number of restaurants are offering discounted menus to coincide. Hence the Panda rushed to the opportunity to book up a storm and try out this Jamie Oliver institution right under St. Paul’s. Upon arrival you are swiftly sent up the stairs to a dining room with […]Read more "Barbecoa, St. Paul’s [Barbecue]"

This once hipster pizzeria originated in the, formally, dingy depths of Brixton Village but now finds itself in every neighborhood imaginable, even Westfield! They are famed for their sourdough Neapolitan pizza, that is “highly digestible” and homely in appearance. We ordered three […]Read more "Franco Manca, East Dulwich [Pizza]"

Buoyed by my coming trip, now current trip, to the US I thought it’d be a good time to compare the best […]Read more "Pitt Cue Co, Soho [North American]"
