That place is okay, the pork dishes are good but the beef was not great at all when i went. As far as "best in London" goes it still wasn't close to Pitt Cue I don't think. It's odd how BBQ has become so ubiquitous yet so terrible almost everywhere.

Really enjoyed Jidori on Kingsland Road last weekend, though I was quite drunk. Great yakitori - the minced chicken and egg yolk, and chicken hearts & bacon particularly. Pretty reasonable too, £3.50-4 for two skewers with a decent amount of meat on.

I had an outstanding lunch at Copita in Soho recently. My son is coeliac and we had a very good gluten free meal at Leggero. Their butternut flan was outstanding.

Had a rather lovely bowl of pho in Banh Banh in Peckham Rye last week. Not life changing or anything, but bloody tasty for £8.

Also did Cafe On in Clapham, was as good as all the reviews say. Only downside was they had ďcash onlyĒ on the board, so I didnít order too much, but then they took cards. I wish Iíd ordered more

I wouldnít be surprised; lovely BBQ is everywhere. Here in DC thereís really only one good place out of dozens.

It used to be good. It's gone way downhill.

Close! Wife is so house is (apart from occasional meat for so now), so it's all I cook.

I like Kalbi in Clerkenwell.

Finally had breakfast at Dishoom today. Man, why have I waited so long? It was amazingly good, and the endless hot chai was delightful. 12/10 would spice again.

My father in law wants to take us out for dinner. What has good food, but not too fussy, not too loud, and has good vegetarian options? He liked L'Autre Pied and we enjoyed Pollen St Social but those are too poncy for his special lady friend. Cost not an issue provided it's not crazy.

I like Luca, tend to go out with my inlaws there when we want good food and relative calm. (Granted whenever I'm in London I pretty much eat at dirty burger, luca, and dishoom on loop)

Where's good for dim sum? Looking for somewhere not too expensive, preferably with soup dumplings.

My go to place, shown to me by my chinese friend, is Wan Chai Corner in Chinatown, on the corner of Gerrard St and Gerrard Place. Pretty sure I've had soup dumplings in there.

I liked Cafe On in Clapham and it's had a bunch of nice reviews, though not sure how recent.

Can't remember if they do soup dumplings but their menu is online.
