Dim Sum London

There is a great new inexpensive chain called Ping Pong, great for lunches or snacks

There is a great little place a couple of doors down from the fire station on Shatesbury Avenue. It has 50% off at lunch times but the quality is of somewhere at twice the price. Amazing!

Roasted Rosemary and Lemon Chicken

Raost chicken is a supper staple in my house. Less fuss with the side dishes though, nothing more fncy than a crispy green salad or some cruncy veggies.

Crispy skin is guaranteed by lifting the skin away from the chicken and massaging a handful of butter into the meat underneath. Once you have done it this way I don't reckon you'll ever go back to not doing it!

Ridiculous to be horrifed that a rib place didn't sell anything else!

And I don't think it is at all unfair that they don't have multiple choices for people's preferences, why should they, they make a killing on their speciality. If you don't like hwat a place serves, don't go there.

Really if I was going to somewhere with a name like Rib House and I didn't eat meat I would have thought it would be common sense to check they had a veggie option!
I wouldn't be horrifed if I went to a veggie place to find they hadn't catered for meat eaters, whats the difference? Or hey, should indian restaurants sell some pizza in case people don't like indian food?!

And to the OP, its fine to say you don't want to go, for whatever reason. Its all about how you say it and how often you say it.
