Big Town – London, Walworth Road

Should apologise for being lazy at typing blog posts. Have got trapped into the world of WFH (working from home), virtual meetings, audits and NOW I have started learning Korean, AND trying to finish up projects for Christmas. PLUS partially worrying about the second wave… THEN some colleagues decided to break my desk at one site… And last but not least, just want to say, we have a bunch of hyprocrites and liars governing the UK (the England part that is)!

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to write about a restaurant. This trip happened post lockdown in July. Miss Pinky needed time out from rearing my goddaughter Baby B and (now my one-quarter godson… long story put short, I was doing more than his own godparents) Master B.

We ended up in Big Town, a Nigerian restaurant. Miss Pinky wanted to go this restaurant last year, but we couldn’t find the time! I think lockdown made me really concious of eating in restaurants at the time, but thankfully I have passed through that paranoia.

The interior looks very neat… I can’t remember the original layout from the previous café owner who I previously blogged about a while back.

Miss Pinky ordered bits and pieces as we didn’t know what to expect.

We had some stewed fish which is a little spicy but went well with the rice we had. I know Miss Pinky likes fish, so I thought she would eat most of it (she did).

Jollof rice, plantain and salad went with the stewed fish. Baby B seems to like plantain a lot … just like me!!

And we had a plate of the Big Town Suya Mix… basically some marinated meat and grilled and then powdered with spices. This was extremely spicy! The beef was a bit tough but I did enjoy this dish.

Forgot what the price came to, but it wasn’t that expensive. We got free chin chin (mini biscuits) and Baby B got some more (but spilt some)… Well that was our first outing for months…

My geeky rating: 4.5/5

Skipping the good and bad points… let’s just focus on getting the economy back to normal and FIGHTING this damn PANDEMIC!
