London Food Blog Roundup

Jamfaced waits oh-so-very-patiently for his meal at Franklin's in East Dulwich and debates how long is too long to wait for your food. The conclusion? "...fifteen or twenty minutes is the limit between ordering and my starter turning up, unless they are plying me with amuse bouche."

Aidan Brooks, Trainee Chef makes his own special East-meets-West soup out of leftover duck leg broth, some chorizo, and some Sharwood's fine egg noodles. You've got that lying around the house too, right?

The wordsmiths at The London Review of Breakfasts hit The Corner Deli in Hackney and report...

Was it delicious? No, it was awful. This place is a classic example of the cynical café, run with no sense of largesse or hospitality, hiding its dreadfulness behind an organic fig leaf. We were not loving this place.

Food Blog worlds collide and a lot of meat is consumed when Dos Hermanos invite Jamfaced, this particular Londonist contributor, and quite a few others out to a very fantastic dinner at everyone's new favorite place for steak, Hawksmoor.

And after all the news about Bernard Matthews and Bird Flu, Real Epicurean wonder...will you still buy turkey?
