Spanish Paella at Parsons


Ok, fine. It's going to be very interesting, very interesting if they don't show up tonight. You know my mother made all this Paella
George Costanza (Seinfeld episode “The Raincoats”)

The other day I went out with a friend an he recommended one local restaurant between Putney and Parsons Green. Tendido Cuatro a Spanish place from Cambio de Tercio group. The place specializes in Paellas and Tapas, the gourmet paellas are made with bomba rice imported from Calasparra from the region of Murcia.

Paella Time
We got a tortilla, the spicy chorizo, and a chorizo and quail paella. The spice chorizo was simple but tasty, the tortilla was sadly bit bland, but the paella was really nice, good seasoning, nice size, and good traditional flavours.

I try to avoid Spanish restaurants in London to be honest, but Tendido Cuatro serves nice traditional flavours, the tortilla was a miss but the paella was definitely a hit, wouldn’t mind to come back and try another of their paellas.

Burger Wars Episode LXXXII: Back in Hawksmoor [BurgeReview]


Double dipped? What are you talking about?
George Costanza (Seinfeld episode “The Implant”)

I came back to Hawksmoor Seven Dials to get their special third burger. Yes their third burger changes with each season, and for this Spring we got the Five Pork Burger.

Burger Time
The Five Pork comes with a Tamworth pork patty, sausage meat stuffing, smoked bacon, greens, and apple ketchup, all this on a brioche bun. If that’s not enough, as a side you get pork scratching and sausage gravy for dipping and double dipping.

The verdict, delicious, not the healthiest burger but a really tasty one.

The damage, 15 quid for the burger plus fries

The conclusion, the burger was spot on, great flavours, good balance, the pork scratching were a nice touch, triple cooked chips perfect as usual. A solid 9.5 of 10 for Hawksmoor seasonal burger.

Gastropup in Imperial Wharf

Aw, these eggs are disgusting. This chicken should be ashamed of himself
Cosmo Kramer (Seinfeld episode “The Little Jerry”)

We went the other day with a couple friends to The Sands End Gastropub. Their idea is bringing a bit of the countryside pub to London. Seasonal menu, rustic décor, good selection of ales, and famous scotch eggs. The place is quite popular, busy and a bit noisy, completely pack on a Tuesday night, so go early or if you want to have a bit I would suggest booking a table in advance.

Bite time
I couldn’t miss trying the scotch eggs and the sausage rolls, as every review I read they were mentioned. As starter we got a burrata with artichoke, which was nice, creamy and fresh burrata as you would expect. Then the scotch eggs and sausage roll, the eggs was nice, great flavour, a runny yolk, lovely. The roll was ok, nice seasoning, the pastry wasn’t crispy enough, and the roll was cold, I would love it to be hot, but for that you might need to get earlier.

Nice food, good beers, ideal if you’re a local of the area.
