What to serve with bun rieu

Surely it just needs salad vegetables as a side for freshness? Lettuce, spinach, fresh herbs, that kind of thing?

Picky NYC foodie looking for a well rounded list of restaurant recs

Hi, This list is really dated _ think about 2009 and we can do better now - places such as Homeslice or Pizza pilgrims. A more up to date list here: http://www.timeout.com/london/restaur...

"Sandy" cobbler

Also reminded me of the sand in the Sound of the sea Heston Blumenthal dish which I believe to contain things such as powered ice cream cone and panko amongst others if you wanted to look that up.

"Sandy" cobbler

The nut addition in those recipes is a twist on the original recipe for crumble which is just flour, butter and sugar. Sometimes nuts are added for a healthier recipe too but also as you say for texture.

General Soup Question...

Tonjiru is a Japanese soup with pork and miso. Have a search online for Tonjiru recipes - might be what you are looking for.

If I was looking for beef I'd go to Hawksmoor.

7 nights in London beginning this Wednesday

You might find that a place that doesn't take bookings will be less busy when the tube strike is on. Worth an experiment if there is one you fancy.

Eating Corn On The Cob--What's Your Style???

My dogs would have them if they could, but I don't let them anywhere near it as it would be dangerous for them to swallow the cob part as it can cause an obstruction.

What is your perfect breakfast?

In hot weather:
Really good coffee or tea.
Papaya, melon and dragon fruit
Creamy yogurt

In cold weather:
Really good or tea.
Creamy porridge, simmered slowly, leaving the oats with a bite, sweetened and with a pinch of salt

Although I do really like frosted shredded wheat :D

ISO inspiration for "Bowls" meals

"Buddha bowls" seem big over here as healthy street food options. They are often things like super grains and veggies. You can search for recipes as there are lots of great suggestions but this site seems to sum the concept up http://init4thelongrun.com/2014/09/23...

London--looking for lunch....

China City has a branch near Russell Square but I haven't been http://www.chinacitygroup.co.uk/russe...

For Pho head to near the Kingsland road and take your pick!

Very Easy Ranch Style Beans, Taco Bell Meat and Gebhardt's Chile Powder Thanks to SQL

I really like your approach, although I admire your dedication to data entry, which would probably be the deal breaker for me rather than writing the SQL. Very interesting!

Some biscuit making questions

Using lessons for scones: Thicker dough for taller end product, very cold ingredients a light touch and a pre-heated oven.

Dornoch Whisky Festival, November 27-29

Hackney eats

Maybe have a look at this http://www.eat17.co.uk/hackney-downst.... Their restaurant in Walthamstow is popular so the one in Homerton may be good.

Homerton is a bit further out. Travel a short while on the overground or bus and you have plenty.

Have a look at Boradway market for the weekend. http://www.broadwaymarket.co.uk/.

Hackney eats

Oh my goodness where to start..Dalston, stoke newington etc have a wealth of places. Dalston for Turkish and all these areas for hipster-ish places that are often smaller and follow food trends - or for pop-ups. What have you earmarked and what do you like to eat?

If you don't like plain rice then make sure to serve it with dishes that are more liquid or that have a sauce, then the rice takes on that flavour and soaks it up - so stir fries and stews for example.

Solo in London in September

Just make sure that you have a cream tea in Devon. Where in South London are you staying? Brixton for example has a bit of a foodie thing going on currently.

What makes the perfect pizza?

I had similar in Bologna from a window-in-the-wall type bakery. I definitely agree that it doesn't feel right as dinner.

Although there are times when only American-style pan pizza will do..

My Italian friend frequently serves cold Sfincione-style pizza as well as hot. It's a great lunch.
