Chang's Noodle, Bloomsbury, London WC1

Evening all!

This week's featured article is for Chang's Noodle on New Oxford Street. Their intriguingly-named Man and Wife offal turns out to include some spicy tripe! It feels like ages since we featured tripe on the RGL blog, doesn't it? If that doesn't get your mouth watering, there are plenty of other Northern Chinese dishes to try - the pork belly with shredded cucumber and the baked buns sound pretty good.

There's a new page for the Meantime Beer Box, located just outside the O2 in Greenwich. Meantime may not be quite so locally-focused as they used to be, but their beers are all present and correct in this bar, including some experimental ones.

Last but not least, we have an update to the Rockingham Arms, aka the Elephant & Castle Wetherspoons (housed in the former Ministry of Health headquarters, the Grade II listed Metro Central Heights). Given the location I would say it's a good Spoons for bus spotting, but the outside space is a bit limited and it's hard to see out from inside.

Kennington Bookshop, London SE11

This week's featured article is The Kennington Bookshop. If I need to explain what or where that might be, I shall despair. However, bookshops are lovely and so you should visit it and buy things there, either new or second-hand.

Reported closures are Pappadom Indian takeaway in Camberwell, Peninsula Chinese restaurant in North Greenwich, and Ministry of Spice Indian takeaway on Greenwich-Lewisham borders.

Finally, in long-awaited happy news, The Ivy House pub in Nunhead is now community-owned and open again, after a battle with developers.

Canbury Arms, Kingston, London KT2

We took a break to get things back on track and can now exclusively reveal that this week's featured article is The Canbury Arms, KT2 6LQ, a gastropub in Kingston. (NB There was a featured article for last week, which was another pub, The Pilot Inn, SE10 0BE in North Greenwich, which I last went to years ago, but it's rather nice.)

New additions are The Moon Under Water, a Wetherspoon's pub (if you hadn't guessed already) in Norbury, and Lahore Masala House, a Pakistani restaurant in Kentish Town.

There are updates to The Gatehouse, another Wetherspoon's pub in Highgate, Shahee Bhelpoori, an Indian restaurant in Norbury, and Quinn's, a pub on the Kentish Town/Camden borders.

Two reported closures are the Good Beer Guide stalwart, The Manor Arms in Clapham, and Livebait, a restaurant on The Cut in Southwark.

This week's featured article is Moyo-Ma, SE17 2AL, a Nigerian restaurant in Walworth.

The new articles are all pubs: The Only Running Footman, in Mayfair; The Prince of Teck, in Earl's Court; and The Man on the Moon and The Randall Tavern, both in glamorous New Addington.

Three closures, the last two possibly quite some time ago: branches of S&M Cafe, dedicated to sausage and mash, in Islington and the O2 Centre; and Chakalaka, a South African restaurant in Putney.
