The food here isn't as expensive as you might think, you can sample their new lunch and pre-theatre menu from £36 for 2 courses. Let's not forget, this is one of the most famous hotels in the world, The Savoy we are talking about.
The menu here is Spanish speaking-influenced whether it is the flatbread of Catalonia to the fish tacos of Mexico to the ceviche of South America, which is unsurprising given their head chef, Marco Padilla is from Peru.
The grilled octopus was picture-perfect in terms of the presentation (as were most of the dishes here) and cooked to just the right degree so that it had some bite without being overly chewy and was served with piquillo pepper, ratte potato, and nduja.
I was recommended their signature, deep-fried salt, and pepper sea bass. Like marmite, the presentation is either distinctly impressive or vomit-inducing depending on your point of view: the whole fish is served upright along with the head on the plate.

Much better value was the lobster bake: at £27.50, it included half 1 pound lobster, peel 'n' eat giant shrimp, mussels, crab claws, and new potatoes and served in a garlic white wine cream sauce.

For me, dim sum is all about the steamed items and you have a plethora of choices here whether you are a meat-lover, seafood-lover or a vegetarian. One of my personal favourites is the black prawn dumpling.
The highlight here is really the main courses and there is so much variety to choose from whether it is a bao burger, a curry rice dish or the ever popular pho or vermicelli noodle bowls.
I sampled a variety of main courses from the hibachi steak and chicken to the black cod and can safely report they were all universally well-executed, delicately marinated and never overcooked.
They've also made giant steps in recent years to cater for the increasing vegetarian market, hence you see most of the stir-fry dishes have a vegetables & tofu option along with dedicated vegetarian choices like the signature Rosa's butternut red curry.
Being a diagnosed seafood addict, I couldn't resist ordering the sushi sister. It came with all the sashimi you could ever dream of and more: seared salmon, scallops, mackerel, tuna, sea bass with truffle oil, daikon with shrimp.
Over the years, I've tried various pasta options and they've never disappointed. If you order something along the lines of fusilli, they are always great at soaking up all the inviting tomato or mushroom pasta sauces.
All the classic Indian street food you would expect are present: we opted for the crowdpleaser, Panipuri wala, which are crispy wheat shells infused with chilled tamarind flavoured water.
Zia Lucia is all about the pizza. They are baked in hand-crafted, wood-fired ovens imported directly from Naples and called lovingly, Dante and Wally.
Starters were elegantly presented such as grilled Iberian chorizo with carefully placed dots of rocket mayo, which was imbued with rich, savoury notes.
Baba G's, the 'Bhangra Burger' restaurant that got funding on the BBC TV show My Million Pound Menu, is having two Sunday pop-ups at Cabana restaurant in St Giles (near to Covent Garden) on Sunday 10th & 17th February 2019. Tickets are just £30, and that gives you a full tasting menu of their dishes. If you watched the show and wished you could have been at their Manchester pop-up then this is your chance!

Filth is a 3 month vegan burger pop-up from Gizzi Erskine, now open at 13 Bethnal Green Road (opposite Boxpark), within the Dirty Burger site. It's open daily until the end or March (or so), and features a choice of two burgers (the Pure Filth, and the Seoul), plus a choice of sites and drinks, again all vegan.
I went today, and really liked it. The Pure Filth Burger has a layer of vegan 'American Beer Cheese' which makes the experience a bit like eating a Big Mac, or a Whopper. A good burger for meat eaters, who want to try something vegan!
