Next Stop: South Africa

What we ordered...
- Grilled eggplant stuffed with goat cheese

- Peri Peri prawns over basmati rice

- Truffle mac & cheese with stewed beef

- Chicken curry with nan bread
- Cheese plate of Stravecchio Parmesan cheese

Worth the trip for...
- A great winebar atmosphere full with the requisite exposed brick, candlelit space
- Extensive, reasonably-priced wine list available by glass, caraffe, or bottle

Skip the trip for...
- Really lousy service - waitress hounded us 2 minutes after sitting down, and then disappeared for 30 minutes
- Pretty lousy food - everything was just "eh" - not one of the small plates we ordered was really noteworthy
