I went to Red Dog Saloon in Hoxton last night. Very much the All-American BBQ joint in the same vein as Bodeans. They do a big line of burgers including 'The Punisher' and 'The Devestator' which is some kind of 6-pattie monstrosity.

I had ribs and pulled pork. The ribs were large, had plenty of meat on them and had a dry BBQ rub rather than being slatered in BBQ suance as Bodeans' often are. I didn't get much opportunity to sample the whole menu (and it's quite pricey anyway) but definitely look forward to going back and trying other dishes. Their chicken wings and cocktails seemed to be quite popular.

Holy poo poo. I know where I'm eating in two weeks time! Thank you goon sir!

Had DimSum at Leongs Legends for sunday lunch and, while it's not the best I've had in London, the price is incredibly reasonable, and the staff were less grumpy than normal...

Breakfastchat is great and all, but someone asked about Richmond on the last page and as it happens, I'll be spending a lot of my time there in the coming months. Any ideas beyond the pubs already suggested?

Cirrik is excellent.

Rara at Kew is great too.

Hmm, I could be down for this. Around 5 or 6 on Saturday, beat the crowds? Also, I realised last time I've never been downstairs, what goes on there? Is it just more seating?

Excellent!

Saturday 23rd February, 5pm at the Bodean's Tower Hill, 16 Byward Street, London, EC3R 5BA - good with you?

Yes, downstairs it's just more seating, the loos and a tiny bar.

Literally never had to stand in Tayyabs queue for more than half an hour. And booked seatings were always instant.

I've eaten there at least ten times.

Also re smokehouses other than Bodean's: Red Dog Saloon at Hoxton Sq is great.

Go to Goodman. Ask for a fillet. Charred outside rare inside. Eat.

Marvel at how awesome it is.

Just got back from Needoo. Holy god, I can't move. That was loving delicious. The fam loved it too (although my sister's guts don't agree with spice much).

We came there around 945-10 and were told there'd be a wait of ~45 minutes, but we got in within 25 or so. Surprisingly cheap for a London restaurant too, we didn't quite hit 60q to feed a family of five. I noticed that there wasn't an alcohol section, which I understood after walking around the neighborhood a bit.

Definitely go there if you have a chance. I'll have to drag dad to 3 Crowns tomorrow...

You'll love Tayyabs.

Can anyone recommend a good place to eat near The British Museum?

Not too expensive. Say 10 or 15+ a head?

Wouldn't mind a nice pub or cafe. Not a chain please!

Lahore Kebab House isn't far from Tayyabs, just as good (ex chef from Tayyabs), and far less hassle with queues. Next time I'm in London I'll be eating my own bodyweight in their lamb chops.

LKH is spicier in general, but yes, very good.

Thanks for the Tayyab's tip. It was packed, hot and noisy, perfect. Final bill for five happy adults was £49.55.

Always a pleasure.

I'd never had a good steak in the UK, only in the US because of their thicker cuts and whatnot. Then I went to Hawksmoor.

Also try Goodman's and Gaucho.

Big Easy used to be good.

They have jacked their prices up and the quantity and quality has reduced.
