Dock Kitchen, Ladbroke Grove

Saturday I went to lunch with a few friends to the Dock Kitchen, one of my favourite restaurants in London! The restaurant is on Regents Canal and has a large terrace that is open when the weather is good.

(the terrace is out to the left – see the guy outside? he’s making za’atar pita bread that is served warm when you sit down).The regular food menu is a mix of middle eastern and South Asian cuisines, but there is also a special set menu that changes every two weeks and has a certain them… recent menus have included English seafood, Italian Christmas, Fijian food, and a truffle menu.

At lunch time, you can only order from the regular menu. We shared the asparagus with chopped egg and vinaigrette, the fontina and ham sandwich, and the clams in tomato sauce and breadcrumbs to start, then I had the zarzuela (fish stew). It came with freekah spinach and chickpeas on the side. The mussels and fish in the stew were delicious, but I found that there were too many breadcrumbs, which made the stew dry and less tasteful… the side veggies, on the other hand, were perfectly cooked!
