BURGERS ‘N’ THAT

Dirty filthy food that'll do you no good

THE OTHERS

Chic N Sours

BAO

Steamed Buns | x2 Locations | ££

Style and substance at play at this much hyped Taiwanese small plates joint. Only been to the one on Lexington St but they have a Sat pop up at Netil Market and opened up another permanent spot in Fitzrovia. The fried chicken bao is criminally delicious, order several. Reservations available at Fitzrovia branch (downstairs only).

CHICK ‘N’ SOURS

Fried Chicken| x2 Locations | £

TBH, I wasn’t mad about the fried chicken I ate here but the sour cocktail I had was way delicious. Willing to give it another go as it’s quite a handsome little spot. Located on Kingsland Road. Recently opened up a new spot in Covent Garden. Reservations available at CG and large groups only at Haggerston except Fri + Sat night.

ON THE BAB

Korean | 3+ Locations | £

Korean street food joint. Have been to the one near St. Paul’s and had the fried chicken steamed bun slathered with sweet chilli sauce and shredded cabbage which was very sloppy but rather tasty. You can eat in and there are a couple of spots across town. No reservations.

SPUNTINO

American / Italian | Soho | ££

Not the most amazing nosh but it’s got a cool vibe and their truffle cheese toast with a fried egg embedded is hella naughty. I’ve only ever been in the evening and would only ever go then, as it’s dark, moody and that’s what contributes to the vibe. Best to go in a pair rather than a group (there are only 27 seats). No reservations.

UMUT 2000 OCAKBASI RESTAURANT

Turkish | Dalston | £

Turkish ‘restaurant’ in Dalston serving up the most amazing wraps. When I went here, I opted for the chicken shish wrap which was huge, bursting with flavour and just 6 quid, what more could you ask for? I can’t comment on the wider offering but if the wrap is anything to go by, your mouth will be delighted. No reservations.
