Ben added :: What is everyone’s favourite Loughborugh Junction restaurant (excluding The Cambria)? I’ve been looking for a local resident for two years and barely tried any of them so would love to hear which places you rate.
Takeaways – #1 I’ve tried the Eastern Tree a couple of times and thats pretty good. #2 Wang Fa is bog standard Chinese takeaway but the people are nice so I always feel well disposed towards them. #4 The Indian place (Zest?) made me ill. #5 DLish is ok but overpriced and my rice ‘n peas had 0 peas. #3 Asya is a good chippy. Good battered sausages and chips are…chippy. #7 the 2 fried chicken/kebab places by the Warrior and the Green Man are just terrible. The one adjacent to the Green Man served up the worst chips I’ve ever had. They stank of smelly feet dipped in stale fat. I had 1 and was nearly sick. Horrible gristly chicken burgers too. #6 the Chinese and kebab/chippy on Millkwood Road are both incredibly ordinary.
I’ve never been desperate enough to try Control Tower or Blessed but maybe I’m missing out?
I did try the control tower (lol) several years ago and to this day I have not been back – ever! Im lucky to still be alive.
Best restaurants …
Number 1 has to go to the eastern tree, which has never let us down with good quality tasty Vietnamese dishes. – That’s it isn’t it? Firezza (take away only) is secretly tucked away on Hardess street which they describe as their Herne Hill branch, but is firmly entrenched in LJ – Yey!
Best Fish & Chips – The Herne Hill Fish & Chip shop at the top of Herne Hill Road. This is now a pilgrimage we make every Friday.
Best Indian – in our humble opinion has to be split between Safa in Camberwell and Ganapati in Peckham
Any other great restaurants?? Camberwell: Cafe Tadem & Hoa Viet – both cheap and cheerful reliable places to go.
Does anyone else have a recomendation to add??
Why is there no pizza place? What about a Pizza restaurant in one of the empty pubs?. In fact what about anything at all in them!
