-Last night we spotted a Catalan/Spanish wine bar on Highbury Park/Blackstock Rd in Finsbury Park. It looked lovely and made me think fondly of yuppy neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Have decided to go when our fortunes turn with Catalan friend.
-Puji Puji Malaysian food on Balls Pond Rd. Menu looks scrumptious but exterior has fake wood made Disneyland style with cement.
-Peruvian on east side Kingsland Rd between Balls Pond Road and the Oxfam. This is new and it looks like they are trying to decide if it is a restaurant or a bar.
-In our hunt for the best chili lemon grass tofu bun in all of Hackney, we had great success at the Vietnamese social club on Englefield Rd. It was a madhouse with very very slow service, but the tofu bun exceeded our standby favorite at Tay Do Cafe. I will try again on at an odd hour. The eggplant was lovely and smoky; it tasted like something in between Lebanon and Japan, which I guess Vietnam fits into.
