Coming to London next month! Looking for affordable, authentic "ethnic" food, especially cuisines that we don't have much of in NYC. We're staying in Woolwich/Plumstead and spending much of our time in Thamesmead for a project, so we're prioritizing areas that will be accessible from there.
So far my research is leading me to:
—Nepali in Woolwich (De Namaste, Kailash Momo)
—Blue Nile in Woolwich for Eritrean
—**Afro-Carribean (This is high priority for us but definitely need reccs. Jerk, roti, curry, etc. Willing to travel. Chaconia in Deptford is on the radar)
—Vietnamese in Deptford (Couldn't find any specific recent info on CH. Also, is Viet Baguette in Woolwich worth a visit?)
—Is there any good Middle Eastern or Indian in our area? If not, what's worth traveling for?
Any advice would be highly appreciated!
