Turns out the best Vietnamese restaurant in London, which apparently chefs like Rick Stein and Mark Hix make the effort to travel to, is 30 seconds walk from my desk, on Old Street. My boss always goes on about Cây Tre, but I generally ignore him on matters of taste. I've just looked at the menu and read the reviews, though. And am mourning all the meals I've missed out on. Nevermind, I'll set about making amends. Anyone up for Vietnamese?
[Take a look at the menu. Crispy battered pangasius fish maws? Wicked crispy frog? Cognac 'luc lac' shaking beef fillet mignon? Oh, Mary!]
