[London] Late May itinerary critique and specific dish suggestions, please

Kelly | May 8, 2012 04:51 AM

It's been way too long since I've had a long enough business trip to London to really dig in and EAT, but I'm planning on rectifying that at the end of May. Hurrah!

Here's what I've got booked:

Thursday
Lunch: St John Bread & Wine
Dinner: Roganic

Friday
Lunch: Colleague is choosing an Indian restaurant. I'm not holding my breath
Dinner: Texture

Saturday
Lunch: Tayyabs
Dinner: Sedap

Sunday
Lunch: Proper Sunday roast - but where? In a frenzy of indecision, we're currently quadruple-booked at Bull & Last, Red Lion & Sun, Harwood Arms and Hawksmoor Seven Dials.
Dinner: Koya (under the assumption we'll want something LIGHT post-roast)

Monday
Trek out to East Ham for a chaat crawl and late lunch at Thattukada before grabbing the Eurostar home

Any and all input welcome - especially on the Sunday lunch. We've never been out to Hampstead - is it worth a trip for a pre-lunch gambol on the Heath if it's nice out? Not that it will ever be nice out again, says the sodden Belgian...

I'm feeling pretty good about the itin overall, but if recent experience at any would lead you to warn me away or steer me elsewhere, I'm all ears.

We'd obviously go for the tasting menus at Roganic and Texture, and I know what I like at Tayyabs, but are there dishes at St John B&W, Koya, Sedap and Thattukada we shouldn't miss?

If kyleoh and JFores don't pick up on this post, I'll issue another one with a specific plea to them in the title. :o)

Many thanks in advance!
