This week's featured article is Beck's Cafe, WC1R 4PS
, a greasy spoon cafe offering excellent quality breakfast in the Holborn area. bob's been a regular nigh on
a year now. In my own opinion, sausages are the key, good quality sausages, can't overemphasise how important these are.
Two new entries include Bongo East
, a Ghanaian restaurant/bar in Barking. It offers some tasty fufu. I'm still not sure what that is. Some kind of bread?
Another addition is Albina
, another bar/restaurant this time in Plaistow. It offers food from the Ukraine, and is probably a good deal safer to visit than that country is right now (/topical). I would suggest reading our review carefully before you go in, because there's some good stuff if you choose well. Bonus Cyrillic action.
Finally two reported closures are Viajante
, whose award-winning chef Nuno Mendes has gone on to other projects (he's currently cooking at the Chiltern Firehouse, which your updater is confident he will not be eating at, what with it being London's current hot ticket). At the other end of the gastronomic spectrum, the E5 Cafe
in everyone's favourite postcode has also shut up shop, not long after advertising non-existent Punjabi food, which may perhaps have confused their potential customers and been something of, dare I say it, a marketing error.
