|Deep fried Brie|
In between homes at the moment and travelling in UK and Europe, so still not much opportunity to cook.
While in London I remembered a Mediterranean restaurant that had a good selection of vegetarian options, and decided to give it another try.
It is called Bistro 1.
There are 3 branches.
We visited the one in Southampton Street, in Covent Garden, London.

Have a look at their website here.
It did not disappoint.
Considering it is situated in the centre of London, the prices are extremely reasonable: a 2 course dinner for £10.90 - not bad at all, and the wine prices are not too harsh on the wallet.
For starters, I had the deep fried brie, and Karen the mezze platter.
My brie (see first pic) was very tasty and only lightly crumbed and battered, so not greasy at all.
The mezze platter was delicious, and a very acceptable portion size too.

For main course, Karen chose the vegetarian mousaka.
Again very tasty and not too greasy.
This restaurant is, not surprisingly, very popular, and usually one has to wait or queue for a short while, unless you get there early.
But the staff are friendly and very helpful.
Well worth a visit.
