Didn’t get the @hopperslondon hype until I ate there myself. The idli, drumstick sambhar, chutney and pickle were all in harmony. I love the way they’ve stuck to the traditional but given it a facelift with exemplary presentation and a rustic ambience. Loved it! Again, book in advance. It’s always busy and that alone speaks volumes about the food.
The new residency at Heddon Street, @10heddonst has a minimalistic interior decor with wine bar vibes that delivers fabulous food! I was impressed by the entrées and that’s just the start of the meal. The Pink Fir Potatoes served with smoked cod’s roe was off the chart! Crispy on the outside and soft pillow texture inside, dipped with the smokey Cod Roe - Superb! One of the best dish of the night. Even a simple Herb & fennel salad was able to convert a non-veggie eater to enjoy it. The incorporation of chilli with citrus dressing was simply the best combo. Plump ‘Nduja steamed mussels with cream & parsley were yummy too.
A month on from my last visit to @bonniegull in Fitzrovia and the wife was craving their fish and chips - especially now that the chips don’t have to be done in beef dripping. ━━━━━━━━━ 🍴 ━━━━━━━━━ 01 - Peterhead stone bass with curry spiced cauliflower : Similar to the curry based dish my wife had at Cornerstone (one of the limited highlights there), this was just as good. 02 - Schiehallion battered haddock and chips : As always as consistent as ever. Even the chips without the beef dripping were OK. ━━━━━━━━━ 🍴 ━━━━━━━━━ As much as we love trying new places, we always make room to go back to places we enjoy - like here. Verdict : 4 ⭐️ ∙ Worth travelling for. Sep 2019 : #toplondonrestaurants#londonrestaurants#londoneats#londonfood#londonfoodguide#eathotdinners#britishfood#seafood#fishandchips#fitzrovia#bonniegull
