Muncho, Croydon, London CR0

Afternoon dudes!

This week's featured article is Muncho, CR0 1YG. This is not in fact a dinosaur villain from a cartoon you are slightly too old to remember properly, but a cafe in Croydon that serves Turkish food as well as the usual salads, sandwiches and omelettes. Perhaps one day Muncho will get the better of those meddling gang of detective kids on rollerskates. One day *shakes fist*

New this week is Bombay Burrito in Angel. Curry in a burrito may sound like a Step Too Far into Heston Blumenthal wackiness, but I assure you it works perfectly well: chickpeas instead of beans, dansak sauce instead of guacamole and so on. Give it a go!

Want to help out with RGL? We need photos of our new additions (including Bombay Burrito above)! If you have access to a camera and would like to take a few photos for us, please leave a comment below and we'll try and sort out some conveniently-located places for you to immortalise for ever in pixellated form.

Likewise, if you happen to already have a suitable photo for an article, locale or category that doesn't have one yet, let us know (though please check our House Style Guidelines first for what constitutes a suitable photo).

Lord Nelson, Sutton, London SM1

Ahoy London landlubbers! This week's featured arrr-ticle is the mainbrace-splicing Lord Nelson in Sutton. "But Kat," I hear you holler in a sea-shanty style. "I see no ships in Sutton, as it is literally 60 miles from the Sheerness seaside!" Well that may be true, but any landlocked pirates will feel right at home at the salty Nelson, which has its own parrot. So be careful not to divulge the secret location of your treasure chest while quaffing your pint of Young's Ordinary!

Two new non-nautical additions to RGL: the terrifically-named Rock and Sole Plaice fish-n-chip joint in Covent Garden, and La Rochelle, a French restaurant on Croydon High Street that does a decent chicken supreme.

The branch of Palms of Goa on New Cavendish Street has now shut - after two disappointing meals there I can't really shed a tear for it. Any pirates in the area looking for South Indian cuisine would be better off going to Ragam, just round the corner.

This week's featured article is Hazev, E14 9RT, a Turkish restaurant on the Isle of Dogs near South Quay Station.

Opened fairly recently, it's a collaboration between London's two main Turkish restaurant chains, Haz and Tas. It includes a cafe/deli, a restaurant, and a bar, all located in a large open-plan room on the ground floor of a waterside residential block to the south of Canary Wharf.

It's step-free to get in, and step-free through to the ladies' toilet at least, though the cubicles are a bit of a squeeze to get into.

Recent additions to RGL include Nivla Restaurant in Camberwell and Bombay By Night in Hampton.
