had an excellent dinner with son at the greek larder at art house down the road from the apartment.^^
son was waiting for me at the apartment & came down to help with the luggage. everything went quite smoothly except for the unwanted 1.5hrs cab ride through congested london after an equally tiresome 13.5hrs long flight from singapore.
i had food at the asia treasure lounge and also a poached egg breakfast & chicken biryani on board. don’t really need to eat dinner, certainly not to take underground etc just to eat. didn’t make sense also for son to cook.
anyhow we decided to walk to king’s cross near the apartment. caravan, place we went to first had a 45mins wait at 630pm, and the indian place around the corner, dishoom, 45mins to 1hr wait. we were walking back to apartment then son remembered another place, the greek larder at art house.
no wait, phew!
nice, cool place too!
complimentary olives to start.
service was super good! young lady server came to our tables maybe 5 times throughout to assist with order, check on us etc.
the oysters, £2, did not look great, but was actually pretty ok, fresh, no metallic taste, sweet, juicy not so plump.
octopus & fava, a split pea puree like a hummus was excellent. very tender tasty octopus. the lady brought nice complimentary rye bread & a refill which was excellent with the hummus.
we took 2 oysters & 3 appetisers, no main courses. price was pretty ok! 🙂
we loved the sausage too, like a chorizo, very tasty flavourful, and the smoked aubergines salad was just fabulous!^^
& the best, the salt cod. i was having this image of the best??? fish & chips in london at poppies (turned out to be the worst fish & chips i ever had, and it was cod!).
anyhow the lady said it was very good. & it was! superb crispy batter & very tasty cod. i would have this again for sure.
dinner with son was just great & we were both very satisfied & happy we took the walk & had such a wonderful dinner together.
