The Damage: Unknown! Howler paid!
The Background: In my spare time, I hang out on Chowhound, a community for what I would call foodie-travelers. The London board is a small board, so if you're not already on it, well, you should go check it out.
I'm met Limster before. You might know him from my Korean restaurant crawl. Howler, though is new to me.
He's picked the venue. And the wine. And I am late! I am never late. Blame the tube. And the walk from the tube. To Moshen, an Iranian restaurant across from a Homebase.
The Entrance: I am cold. And Moshen is warm. Howler and Limster have already started on the Chinon. And lucky for me, they've already ordered us starters. To be honest, I'm not really sure what I'm eating. There's some aubergine. And something yogurt-y. And something salsa-like. And lots of bread. It's all pretty excellent.
The Mains: Howler orders us a mixed grill. It's lovely upon arrival. The lamb is amazing…I've never seen lamb pounded so thin. And so much saffron! I mention that I like aubergine and lentils and my wish is delivered. Exactly. It's great too.
I've told you that I was late. Well, I am punished for it. It seems Howler is having hot water troubles too. He leaves an hour after my arrival, to go wait for the boiler repairman. He leaves Limster and me alone with our Iranian hosts with 2.5 bottles of Chinon. Excellent.
The Loos: Clean. And the stairs too! No round corners. Whoever is cleaning this place knows what they are doing.
The Verdict: I liked it here. And I got to take home the leftovers!
