Ram's, Kenton, London HA3

Evening all!

This week's featured article is for Ram's in Kenton, a vegetarian Indian restaurant and sweet shop with a decent all-you-can-eat buffet. Unlimited bread! There are also two new pages on RGL: Cactus Grill in Wallington serves Mexican/American food with a lunchtime meal deal, and Hap Lee in Norbury does the usual Anglo-Chinese cuisine (maybe skip the aubergine).

There's an update for the Orange Room in Mile End, just around the corner from a house where approximately half the population of Livejournal has lived at one point or another, including this author. I'm pretty sure there wasn't a local Lebanese mezze place at the time - but now there is!

Several pub closures to report: the Hatchet near Mansion House, the Chequers in Hendon, and the Greenwich Pensioner in... wait for it... Poplar! (Come on, why would you think a Greenwich Pensioner might be in Greenwich?) The Victoria Stakes in Muswell Hill is also temporarily shut following a fire, but the Good Samaritan in Whitechapel has reopened: very handy for a pre- or post-Tayyabs pint.

Lighthouse, Catford, London SE6

Hello! This week's featured article is Lighthouse, SE6 4SP, or "LightHouse" perhaps, as that's what the facade looks more like. It's a vegetarian cafe in Catford with glamorous light fittings and texturally interesting porridge. Also, other food. Plenty of options.

Only one new addition for this update, which is Rial Cafe in West Ham, though don't look for that name anywhere on the outside. (This is developing into a bit of a theme this week eh?) It's a pretty small cafe with eclectic decor.

Finally, the reported closure of Hendon's Atari-Ya (or... "Atariya"?) sushi bar, which was rather nice. Still, the other Atari-Yas are still going as far as we know.

Atari-Ya, Hendon, London NW4

Afternoon RGLers! I hope you had an enjoyable Bank Holiday weekend.

This week's featured article is Atari-Ya, NW4 3UX in sunny Hendon, which will sell you sashimi and quality tofu (and plenty of tea) for a very reasonable price.

There's a new article for Bright Courtyard, a dim sum restaurant on Baker Street that does great prawn and chive dumplings but disappointing xiao long bao. They also offer private dining rooms if you wish to compare the quality of your dumplings in near-secrecy!

To ensure your Surrey boozer knowledge is bang up-to-date, three pubs around the Kingswood/Tadworth area have updates to their articles: the Inn On The Green (very food-orientated), the Duke's Head (large but friendly, several handpumps) and the Kingswood Arms (a Fuller's pub with an open fire in winter).

Zeen and Royal Sweets on Drummond Street have shut, and the building now houses a restaurant called Taste Of India. However the Royal Sweets website indicates that their Tooting and Streatham* branches are still open if you fancy some mithai.

*Apparently the Streatham branch is closed too (see comments)!

This week's featured article is Gourmet Garden, NW4 3AX, a rather good Malaysian restaurant in Hendon.

It does proper Singaporean, Malaysian, and Chinese-Malaysian food as well as a handful of things that would be familiar to those expecting the usual Anglicised Chinese food. Accessibility-wise, there's a small step up to get in and a few more shallow steps/ridges to get to the toilets.



Recent additions to RGL include Ye Olde Red Lion and Songkran, both in Cheam. One reported closure: the Evangelist near Blackfriars Station.
