The Best, Worst And Weirdest London Restaurants Of 2010

by timchester

It was a year ago Friday I chomped and nearly chundered my way through one of those gristle bricks the Aberdeen Angus Steak House get away with selling every two minutes across the capital, and made a quiet pledge to trundle round the city looking for better places to eat for the same price (£31.75 to the uninitiated). So with 2010 collapsing in a heap all around us, a non-scientific and random look at some of the movers and shakers of the budgetish restaurant world (and what cynics might call a flagrant excuse to flag up old content). See you in 2011, when I’m going to be mostly freeze drying my liver and taking it round schools to remind kids that drinking’s not cool, getting din dins by Heston, and trying to get the £31.75 Twitter followers above a number that makes the defollow so painfully obvious.

Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this.
We got a grab a book from our area library
but I think I learned more clear from this post.

I am very glad to see such magnificent information being shared freely out there.
