mcdonalds cheeseburgers are now 50p

with sunak's eat out deal you can get a tenner off £20 spend dining in

that means you could order 40 cheeseburgers for a tenner at a mcd's from mon-weds. have to eat them all in the restaurant tho.

You got to get to some places early, due to Sunak's eat out deal.

You can eat very well for breakfast, lunch and dinner and only spend £15-£20 for the whole day.

East London is rammed because of it. Can’t even get into pubs for a pint.

It’s all good but Just hope it doesn’t cause any cash flow issues for the smaller places.

Went for a meal in Richmond sat. Couldn’t even get into a couple boozers for a drink before as was booked out. Went pizza express last night. Not great either. Not en enjoyable experience trying to sort the app and follow their rukes. Fucking wank this covid and the hospitality sector. No fun going out.

was very disappointed when I went to arroz (when it first opened), not been back. agreed re sabor and brindisa, though I think lurra and donostia are great.

Sabor is great as it has(or had) 3 different menus/areas.
You can do bar tapas first and then either have counter (like barrafina) or go for larger meats upstairs.

Sabor is OG barrafina old head chef.

OG barrafina > any other barrafina.

Found hoppers really disappointing! Much better keralan/sri lankan food about in London and it wasn't elevated enough to justify the concept imo

Hoppers is a south Indian food for white people. Not meant in a bad way, it's done purposely so.

For 'real' south Indian food, head to High Street North (east London) or Tooting.
