I decided not to order the kangeroo. We had lunch at this new spot near Covent Garden today, and I was rather surprised that it was fairly empty at prime time for lunch. I think it's a nice addition to that neighbourhood.

I had a delicious burger of soft shell crab in a grease-free, tempura batter - it was covered by a Thai peanut sauce and salad and served in a good-size bun. Fries were also tasty but supposedly made with rosemary and garlic salt. There was salt (didn't taste very garlicky to me) and I tasted no rosemary at all.

My husband had a lentil soup which I thought was a bit overpriced at £6.50. The usual lunch soup was nowhere to be seen on the menu, but they accomodated his desire with what the waitress called their 'dinner soup.' I guess that means it was leftover from the night before or just made for service tonight... anyone's guess, but he said it was tasty.
