Below is a list of places I have dined at that have not made a blog post.
Quite simply I ask myself, ‘is it likely I would eat here again?’. If the answer is no, I don’t write it up.
Truc Vert, Mayfair 11/12 – eggs benedict with cold un-toasted buns and an almost fridge cold sauce. Raw pancakes. Wrong drinks order. Had to ask repeatedly for condiments. Slow service despite only a quarter full. Bit of a shambles.
Roka, Canary Wharf (weekend brunch) 10/13 – not especially bad but food
a bit ‘meh’. Too noisy, too many people getting rowdy on unlimited wine. Doesn’t even come close to brunch at The Connaught for the same price
Pitt Cue Co, Soho 08/13 – very nice staff but meat marinades quite sweet, too cramped and hot, not quite worth the crazy waiting times.
Brasserie Blanc, Winchester 08/13 – food tasted better than it looked, good value set menu, but nothing to write home about.
The Regency, Queensbury 07/13 – fantastic mogo and Kenyan beer, but I’ve had better meat at other Indians. However, I likely would visit again if in the area.
Yaneff at DSTKT, West End 07/13 – wonderful front of house but only half the courses on the tasting menu were good enough to write about
Mishkin’s, Soho 05/13 – all dishes ordered were bland, uninspiring and under-seasoned, but great (strong) drinks
Lahori Karahi, Tooting 03/13 – burnt chops, no lentils in dansak, very odd bhajis. A particular well known blogger hypes this place, but I haven’t returned despite it being round the corner to where I live. Lahori Karahi in Hounslow is far superior.
