Meet up on Saturday 10th at 12.30

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Yes. Please remove us from the list. We are going to be in Royston at lunchtime on Saturday, and going on to Ely for supper.

We need to have another meet!

Does this change things ?

I can't change the first page, but seem to have succeeded if I post as a new message

And nothing has changed :( It needs a mod to intervene I suspect :aww:

Hi all
I have been watching this thread although I unfortunately can't be there with you. However, the idea of the May meet when Rats is in the UK sounds promising so I'm just posting this so I don't miss any potential info on the next one.

I'm sure you'll all have a great time tomorrow and really look forward to seeing any pics.

Great photos Sue, except my face - the one above !!! Smashing day, we left early, glad we did as there was a burst water main (EM could not get it fixed !) We collected Patsy and arrived on the dot at 12.30. Smashing food, service and company. When the music started Patsy started to wiggle ! She could not sit still, thought we were going to get a free Zumba class. EM was very generous with her dessert, I think most of us had some and she still took some home. We have a meal each for another day, starters were superb, lovely avocado hummus - very creamy and the pumpkin falafels were delicious. Great mixed grill. The only thing we must try next time is a hookah !!!

Yes, the food is good IMO, but I might not risk a full 3 courses another time, too much
The star of the starters was the pumpkin kibbeh for me too, but they were all good, they might have toasted the pitta a bit more, but that was really my only comment
I tired the rose water mouhalabia, which was like a very silky blancmange, delicately flavoured with rose water and garnish with rose petal jam and pomegranate seeds

Home after a lovely day meeting friends old and new. Great to see you all.

The food was lovely, I always come away from Lebanese restaurants thinking that next time I'll skip the main course and with hindsight would have been happy to have done so today. The Mezze items were all heavenly - loved the avocado hummus and labneh beetroot and we all agreed that the pumpkin kibbeh were particularly good (the fluffy looking brown thing in the 3rd photo down filled with pine nuts, greens and other delicious things; looking at online recipes it seems to be the shell which is made from pumpkin - I'm not sure how they got the rough texture which fried well). I had the chicken tagine main course and enough for about 3 people arrived! I have brought a doggy bag home for tomorrow's lunch. It wasn't particularly flavoursome in the restaurant but ponged out the car on the way home :lol: . The desserts all looked nice, we all laughed at the size of the piece of chocolate cake I was served. We all tried some and I still brought a big piece home. It came with a scoop of lovely ice cream - lightly flavoured with cardamon I think.

Nice photos Sue, your skill in catching my chins is superb :lol: :lol:

It was a very large table Teresa ... if you got that in your flat you would have to move out ;) :lol:

Yes, great company, delicious food and like the others, I could easily have given the main course a miss. But the set meal did look good value. I opted for Sea Bream and couldn't manage all of it having pigged out on the mezze :chops: Zosh and I decided on mixed baclava for our dessert ... and most of those were brought home too ...

A 'Yes' to all of the above. Far too much food so I will not have to eat for days now.

No burst water mains excitement but a lot of Police and Police cars at I think the Bond Street bus stop on the return journey, I have no idea what the incident was.

Wonderful photo of KKA with his mouth open. :lol: :lol: :lol:
I had a wonderful time. It was so lovely to meet you all at last and finally to sit down and chat about what we all enjoy so much - FOOD.
And talking of food - we had plenty of it. The mezze were delicious. Freshly prepared, varied, delicious. I agree with Patsy that the hummus could have had a bit more garlic, and as Sue said, the pita bread was chewy. Apart from that, magnificent. The main courses were spectacular. Far too much food for me (and for some others!) but delicious anyway. Excellent service, great wine, lovely company. What better way to spend a Saturday in London?
