Andrew Edmunds is usually a good bet, can be patchy sometimes thoughHelp, I need somewhere decent around Soho/central London for tomorrow night (Saturday) to take my parents. The only thing I can think of at the moment is Mark Hix but that's a bit too expensive. Somewhere like that but not quite as toppy would be perfect... Cheers!
Went to this pub on Sunday in Bethnal Green (I've been there a few times, it's nice; pool table, football, friendly etc but I can never remember the name) and they put out a few bowls of roast potatoes on the sides. They were really good, maybe they were roast and then fried or something, very salty. I remember thinking "These are better than chips, why don't I eat these more often" - hard not to eat too many and look like a greedy bastard, especially as I was just about to drink up and leave."Can Britain please get over its collective hard-on for potato wedges? Are they meant to be "chips for grown-ups" or something? They have their place but let's face it, they're not a patch on proper, ordinary chips. (Or, if you're having steak, really good, thin, proper French fries.)"
homemade wedges are much easier to make thoughAll this talk of fries/chips reminds me of something I've been meaning to get off my chest for some time:

always do these at home for our version of fish and chips, as my wife doesn't do deep frying at home. pretty easy to roast them, although sometimes they can turn out soggy from too much oil (but you need some oil on the roasting tray so they don't stick).homemade wedges are much easier to make though
I've had stuff from Pitt Cue truck which was pretty gorgeous but I think turning up to their place will involve a long wait which could be annoying.Does anyone have any recommendations for American style BBQ in London? I've been looking at this article and salivating. Can anyone vouch for the recommendations?
