has anyone tied black and blue at borough market? dont know much about it but it looks good (looks can deceive however!). the swedish place opposite neals yard looks worth a visit too but agsin not been there myself yet to comment
If you are looking for a restaurant in SE1 for a special occasion and one that will provide you with a great dining "experience" I would thoroughly recommend Champor-Champor on Weston Street.
Asian Fusion food - not huge portions, but wonderful. Not cheap but worth it.
I've eaten there 3 times with other half and enjoyed it. Their Singapore Slings are powerful and they have a loyalty scheme where I get a third off even if I turn up without booking.
I took a party of 10 there for a work type dinner meeting on Wednesday (booked through toptable) and the total bill was £290. We all had 3 courses, a Singapore Sling, 6 bottles of water, wine and assorted other drinks. Everyone enjoyed the food and service was good too.
It doesn't seem to get great reviews. I've lived in many different countries all round the world and have always enjoyed the food - I don't know if they are completely authenitic, but certainly more than edible and portion sizes are good.
