Oh dont worry I DO have a sense of humour, only I really am in a bit of a tizz about this bloody lunch because I need to get booking - I'm away most of June and by the time I get back in July people might be booked up....it's rather weighing on my mind. Now that I've got this lovely list,plus Paul's personal rec. I can joke away. But alas, Nando's is SUCH a thorn in my personal flesh I find it hard to laugh about. You cannot imagine how detestable it is to be on my glorious terrace assailed by the smell of hot fat...ruins the whole thing. And Nando's seem to have no restrictions imposed upon them. Of course St.George should never have sold that ground floor range of shops to Nando's and Wetherspoons...totally irresponsible in a residential building (same goes for the huge Chinese restaurant in the bottom of the blue building in Walworth Road...bet the residents get pretty fed up with the smell of egg rolls.
in jamaica road there is a proper proper italian restaurant, the food is lovely it's family run they would make a real fuss of your mum, it's large airy place, no stairs etc., it the Castello restaurant. The kitchen can be seen with the cooks in it! ( no 'orrible smells!) it's on the new Piazza that southwark has just poshed up!
The chicken breast stuffed with crab...lovely, I'll find the number out for you.
I really reccommend Sarah Nops (as on the previous thread) personally and professionally she is an excellent cook (years of experience at the Good Housekeeping Magazine Institute) and very reasonably priced. Do PM me Jackie if you need to get in touch with her. She catered for my parents 40th wedding anniversary and everyone was very happy!
