EIGHT OVER EIGHT

November 1, 2005

392 Kings Road; SW3, 020 7349 9934 

This one is a real favorite.  And well worth the second visit.  Of  course, we love Asian food, and Eight Over Eight and its trendier sister (mother), E&O, (see separate listing)  do a great job, from the modern, airy décor, down to the friendly service.  The food, however, is the main reason to go.

Rejecting the two-course express menu (£15 with 1 glass of wine), we chose our lunch á la carte, and did we feast on a large selection of appetizers (all between £6-6.50).  Our starters included pomelo and pomegranate rolls, and butternut squash, water chestnuts and snow peas also in roll form, but steamed and then grilled .  Then we moved into prawn and chive dumplings, tuna tartare, and the best pork spare ribs Gary has encountered. 

Finally, a spicy beef to wrap in lettuce leaves, warm aubergine salad (£9.50), and banana peppers and sweet potato tempura (£7). The menu is the same at lunch and dinner; the prices, too. 

The only difference is that there are four chefs at lunch and eight at dinner.  Guess the crowd is a dinner one.  Reservations probably a must at dinner; lunch a little more relaxed.
