Afternoon, RGL Crew!
This week's featured article is for Yi-Ban, E16 2QT
, a child-friendly Chinese restaurant overlooking the Royal Docks. Don't be fooled by the harsh exterior pictured above - from the rear of the building you can watch planes taking off and landing at City Airport while you eat your dim sum!
We have a few new articles for you. Picture
on Great Portland Street is a newly-opened restaurant that does modern British food and excellent puddings - your intrepid RGL blogging team thoroughly enjoyed their visit. There's also Jai Shri Krishna
, a reasonably-priced vegetarian Indian restaurant on Turnpike Lane, where you write down your order yourself on a pad of paper. Finally on Lordship Lane in Tottenham there's Akwaah's Kitchen
, a small, friendly restaurant serving mainly Ghanaian food.
There are several updates to existing pub articles following recent visits: up the far end of the Metropolitan line we have the Rose and Crown
on Chorleywood Common and the Sportsman
in Croxley Green. Slightly closer to
Charing Cross (as the crow flies) is the ancient White Horse
, just north of Heathrow Airport (where very few crows would actually fly, if they had any sense). Right over on the other side of London is the Victoria Tavern
in Loughton, and finally the John Baird
in Muswell Hill, where lime and soda costs a triumphant 65p.
As Martin Luther King Jr said, 'Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle
'. As such, the Whistle and Flute
Fuller's pub on Putney High Street is now a bar called The Swift, while Mum's House
Burmese grocery in Wood Green has moved from its old home in the Plaza N22 centre, to a side street a few minutes' walk away.
