Cheap Eats in Dirty ol' London Estimated Cost = 50 pounds

Carluccio's The authentic Italian restaurant. Tube: South Ken. Stn.
EVERY SINGLE DISH FROM THEIR MENU IS IMPORTED FROM ITALY, you always watch Uncle Antonio Carluccio's show on Discovery Travel and Adventure channel? Now taste his food ! It's lovely !


The fatty cook in action.
This time besides eating, I bought some souvenirs. Their hand made thin egg pasta (Best served with their signature WILD BOAR Ragu Sauce) only available on the today's special menu . Their Olive grossini (breadsticks) is the real stuff, i also got piedmont biscotti that came with the gelati that we ordered (ice cream is just normal) .
Recommended eats : Fried Rice Dumpling with mozarella and minced meat; Wild Boar Pasta; Rissoto and a special dessert which i forgot to take a picture and can't spell it in italian well it includes milk, warm chocolate and espresso served in three individual cups and you have to mix according to your taste into a coffee cup and serve. Talk about the science in food.

The menu includes transportation, a brand new vespa scooter for 1799 GBP. Cute right? if only i could ride a bike.

The Queue to get a place to sit in Carluccio is forever. The restaurant's interior design is modern chic - me likey.

This is the clam pasta which the clams have a really refreshing taste

Spinach Ravioli !! my fav pasta :) eat that all the time it's really good

I had the today's special - Mushroom Rissoto (let's just say it's the BEST rissoto i've had in England! )

Must try for mushroom soup lover. This is not a typical creamy mushroom soup you always get. It is made from various type of mushroom in clear soup with bacon bits which are extremely addictive. It looks plain but the taste is magnificto

Heart Shaped Fried Mozarella (amazingly delicious !) cheese is sweet and salty at the same time. Served with extremely good salsa and rocket leaves. Something that taste and look good at the same time.

Tentables London Tube: Gloucester Rd Stn. Cuisine: Spanish
Recommended Hot Tapas : Grilled Chilli Prawns, Mini Paella and Cod Fish Croquette (where are the pics? it's too good i was too hungry i forgot to take)
Grilled Pork Chop with Apple Sauce and Mash - yummy - pork is tender apple sauce yummy !



Second Dish is Lamb Shank again, lamb was grilled to perfection



This is my favourite (dish i ordered) grilled salmon with mini prawns on top served with white cream sauce and chips which are too cute to eat they are really fat looked more like individual cubes of chips.
