I'm back from a month in the states (where the average price of one of my meals was 6-8 dollars and where I was frequenting a wonderful Szechuan hole in the wall that spoke no English and had none on the menu. None at all.) I'm pretty much feeding myself off of Green Valley until I can get to the market on Saturday at which time I will begin two weeks of exclusively Thai cooking (I made a 9 course Thai meal using my shiney new cookbook for Christmas Eve. I always do the Italian 7 fish thing so this year I did 7 fish using Thai recipes and two vegan entrees to cater to my hated vegan enemies... I mean my two confused friends.)
Ok onto restaurants. Tonight is my last night without food and therefore my last night without cooking for at least a few months. Where should I go? It has to be WELL under 20 pounds and I don't care how far it is. I have an unlimited bus pass now and plenty of new books. Yay! Turkish in Stoke Newington comes to mind, specifically the place which was recomended to me a while back. I have it written down.
Di Fara felt so good. Sooo good...
