Yeah that me. I fkin hate the district line. Slow as F going anywhere past hammersmith with 10+ minute waits between trains while watching 3-4 Picadilly line trains fly by! Nice it has air con but hell its cold here anyway 9 months of the year so moot point. Nicer carriages, yep nice to stand in but the damn carriage designer decides not to put sufficient overhead bars to hold on to at each carriage join. Don't get me started on tourists at South Kensington. Been hell since the company moved out to Hammersmith a few years ago. I disagree and believe this is utter garbage. You have not been trying hard enough to find the good eats or not spending enough. E.g. good fish here is £££ as we are next to the Atlantic and fish stocks nothing like the Pacific. So Cod, Skate, Plaice, Trout, Salmon, Haddock is the game here anything else is exotic. Sushi - some fantastic places with quality stuff though you will have to pay a £££ for it. e.g. Oka Robata, Chisou I have been to and loved. Sushi samba haven't been here yet but its rated very highly. Eat Tokyo, Kulu Kulu or Taro, Japan Centre if I want some cheapish japanese. Ramen - Shoryu, NanBan, Kanada Ya - Love these joints. Seens to be a new ramen popup happening every year. Thai - Try the pubs around Hammersmith - Latymers & The old city arms , also like the Thai Square restaurantes dotted around london. - All great thai and close to some of my favourite Sydney joints. The pubs hold the good thai places. Burgers - No Fkin way! Honest Burgers, Cheeky Burger, Patty and Bun, Meat Liquor and Even byron. My favorite is Bleeker Street Burger. Medium rare greasy, sloppy and beefy goodness I wanna rub all over my face because they fkn taste great to me. GBK WTF!! They were ok when I first got here but not even on the burger ladder nowadays.. not my thing. BBQ - F no! You have Zelleman meats, Black Lock, Goodmans and Hawksmoor. Perfect steaks and more importantly consistent. If you want something like smoked BBQ you need to hit up the food popup markets once had a an excellent smoke pichania sandwich at at Argentinean market on southbank couldnt find them again... Some market popups have restaurants e.g. Pitt Cue and SmokeStak both ace for smoked BBQ. Indian - London is indian heaven. Good places all over the joint so I know you definitely have not been trying hard enough making such a frivolous comment on Indian in london . I lived in tooting for a few years and there was a whole street of restaurants. Best Indian I have had. Another level better than *any* indian sydney joint I have been to. Kebabs - Just take a walk down Edgware road from marble arch. Choose a restaurant or open takeaway joint there will be lines where the good stuff is. My favourite is Maroush. I agree not all are good but most that I have been to are. I always look out for joints that cook over open charcoal as they usually know what the fk they are doing. Mexican - I'll give you this one but really haven't been looking for the good ones. I liked a shop called Benito's Hat I tried once though. Coffee - I don't drink coffee but there are a lot of Aussie inspired joints that have opened up. Aussies are real coffee snobs, one of my friends was berating the coffee in Italy for gods sake and the Italians love their coffee. Heads up on other places. Chinese - Four Seasons in Chinatown or Bayswater - Char Siu and BBQ Duck with their special sauce. Hutong @ the shard for the Schezuan stuff and Peking. Though I like the peking @ Imperial China as it has more traditional skin. Also Dumplings Legend, Royal China, Yauatcha and Shikumen for Yum Cha. Also check out Smoking Goat, Franco Manca and especially BarraFina (loved the food here). Also heads up .. there is a new Korean market opening up "Mee Market" Today (4th December) Definitely worth a gander since its near Picadilly circus. So many places! Yes London has made me happy and fatter. Though it took me a year to begin uncovering the good joints, most likely as I have settled more and started earning enough £££ for a decent meal out. So yeah "does not even come close to sydney" ... F sake!
