Brindisa, a few steps from the Bourough Market

Petals of cured loin from the Iberico pig, the thin slices ruby-red, lean, with an occasional ring of white fat. Meaty, with a hint of sweetness, dense and firm. Lovley but not extraordinary.

Loved the grilled chorizo, halved lengthwise and scored. Could have been more spicy, but it's a quibble. Just the right greasy sausagey flavour, the smokey sweetness of grilled (piquillo?) pepper and sharp bitter-edged arugula on a rustic slice of grilled bread.

A solid creme catalan with a pleasant waft of vanilla, pretending to be a creme brulee.


Konditor & Cooks, across from the Bourough market

A pleasant wedge of orange chocolate marizpan cake. A judicious wave of thin marizpan at the top, a faint hint of orange, mellow chocolate. Moderately moist.


Masters Superfish, somewhere in SE1

Loved the batter, slightly puffy and very crisp. Fresh, clean-tasting cod. Nice gherkin, vingery and sweet. Basic chips.
