Tacqueria

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Eat Out, Recommended

OK! Miso Hungry is back a day before a new year’s resolution was due to begin! It’s been a while since posting… like 2 years but happy to say Tacqueria has inspired me not only to post a review but to resurrect my entire food blog. It’s not easy to find a good taco in London. I’d probably say there are a handful of places but after a recommendation from a friend from West Coast (they probably take it more seriously than Mexicans) I had to give this a try. I’d have love to stay longer and next time I will to sample more of […]

Wandercrust

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Eat Out, Recommended

You’re going to think the only streetfood I eat is pizza but it’s just a coincidence the second streetfood post is another pizza van I assure you. Actually I did plan on posting about a jerk chicken thing and something else but they were so mediocre I just couldn’t be inspired to write anything. When it comes to streetfood there is going to be a slight bias towards things I recommend only here. And I can wholeheartedly recommend Wandercrust. I was lucky to chance upon the van Broadgate a couple of days ago. Very lucky as they appear to be based closer to SE10. The […]

Sud Italia

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Eat Out, Recommended

This should be the first in a series of reviews on London streetfood. Unless you’re trawling through twitter or on a dozen e-mail lists about London Pop-Ups it can be a bit hit and miss. Luckily Miso inbox sorts out the spam from the quality cuts in gmail so you don’t have to. My lunchtime snack today is pizza from Sud Italia located in Spitalfields Market. You can find them here every weekday. Their van houses a mobile wood-fired oven cooking up authentic Neapolitan style pizza at very reasonable prices. I went for the Nduja for a bit of a spicy kick at £7. Miso […]

Piebury Corner

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Eat Out, Recommended

It’s pies and craft beer…. winning formula! I’d like to say I was here on the way to watch a football game but the reason for being in the area was to look at vintage furniture… the pie saved my life! We went for a “Theirry Henry – Venison and red wine” and a “Charlie Nicholas – Scotch Pie”. I washed mine down with a can of Beavertown Neck Oil but I’d rather a can of vintage Tennents (pictured) if they were still in production. The pies themselves had a good pastry and rich with filling. Miso satisfied. Piebury Corner 209-211 Holloway Road Holloway London […]

Curio Cabal + TA TA Eatery

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Eat Out, Recommended

I’m giving Curio Cabal quite a solid rating here which I think is highly justified by the amazing food offered by TA TA here. As I understand it started out as a sort of pop-up residency within this coffeeshop but has now gone permanent (Wednesday to Saturday evenings) for which I’m ever greatful. I believe there are also plans to serve lunch too. “Ta Ta” meaning he and she in Mandarin is run by Zijun Meng and Ana Gonçalves who both worked with Nuno Mendes at Viajante and Chiltern Firehouse. They serve up an amazing family feel fusion of Chinese and Portuguese food. Miso shall […]

Padella

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Eat Out, Recommended

It’s freezing cold and there’s a queue outside but the promise of amazing pasta is well worth it. Luckily we don’t have to wait too long as we are only 2 people and a few people ahead of us are waiting for larger tables. To make comfort of the situation we are allowed to order a glass of wine in the queue too! We pray we won’t be seated right next to the door as we see 2 diners finishing up whilst we wait as we don’t want to sit in a draft. Luckily we are seated in what I consider to be the best […]

Jidori

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Eat Out, Recommended

UPDATE 1st Nov 2016: We came back to try the things we missed before and they were quite amazing. Namely the Salmon Tataki, Scotch Eggs and scallops in black bean sauce. Jidori is the only dedicated Yakitori speciality restaurant in London I know of so have been very keen to visit.  On entrance we were asked if we’d like to sit at the bar but actually it was more of a rhetorical question as the place was fully booked. Luckily it would have been my ideal choice of seat anyway as I find watching the chefs at work fascinating. We opted for the “omakase”… or […]

Taberna do Mercado

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Eat Out, Recommended

I think I can safely say one of the best meals I’ve had in London was at one of Nuno Mendez’s earlier Michelin starred restaurants, Viajante. I’ve never been to the celebrity filled Chiltern Firehouse but have been very excited to try the much less assuming place in Old Spitalfields Market. The food does not disappoint. The portion sizes do however but not for next time… order a bit more! We’d just about caught last orders as a walk-in so didn’t have the luxury of time on our hands. We opt for prawn rissoles as a “snack”, tinned fish (I think mackerel – note to […]

San Carlo Cicchetti

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Eat Out, Recommended

UPDATE — SEPT 18TH — I’m back!! And this time we discover the most amazing scallops in London! Served with a shaving of truffle. We order a different pasta this time and a Parmigiana. This place will be high on the list for a while. ORIGINAL POST – AUG 10TH — I didn’t know cicchetti are the Italian version of tapas but it was absolutely perfect as we were in the mood for something Italian but not overly hungry. There was an amazing buzz about the restaurant and we just felt excited about eating what was promising to be some authentic Italian cooking.  Next us […]

Counter Culture

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Eat Out, Recommended

Counter Culture is the sort of tacked on extenstion of The Dairy comprising of a tiny kitchen where everything is made and a few high chairs from where to squash up and eat. I make it sound unappealing but actuallly I love it. Don’t go with more than 2 people as you’ll find you can’t talk to one another and you’re less likely to get a slot. The walls are surrounded by jar of mystery pickles in progress. It has inspired me to make my own Kimchi (as of yet it’s at the “thought that counts” stage). The menu is designed for sharing and seemingly […]
