food, food and more food

Mum & Paul joined us on Friday for a weekend spent eating and drinking. Friday night we stayed in the wharf and ate at Tompkins, not great , but not bad though defintely not helped by the acrid smell of carbonised meat. But on this occcasion the choice of restaurant was not driven by the expected quality of food but for the location. Tompkins is located in south quay at the bottom of what is apparently the tallest residential building in the uk. The view of the dock is ok, but by eating at the restaurant you get access to Attic, the bar on the 48th floor with views from each side.
Saturday we spent at Taste of London, sampling a range of dishes from fine dining restaurants and wandering around the foodie stalls. Best of the day was Bocca di Lupo and l’Anima, closely followed by many others. Last year on the back of our Taste experience we had a lovely meal at l’Anima (thogh not so fond of its decor), so this year I think we’ll be heading to Bocca di Lupo.
Sunday was far more relaxed, as we headed to Locksbottom for a set menu at Chapters to celebrate Jackie’s b’day. We’ve been to its sister restaurant in Blackheath and always enjoyed.
All up a great weekend, with lots of lovely food and company.
