Dinner in Pho, a London Vietnamese restaurant, followed by a "happening London" roller-blade fly-by.

We were were early, so there was plenty of room in this small (seats 35) restaurant. By the time we left after an unhurried dinner, there was a queue. So go early or book if you don't like to wait.


Starters: I had the Salt & Pepper Baby Squid. Mostly hidden, upps, behind the lime, salt pepper dressing with chillies.


Poppy's starter of meat balls with a peanut sauce. Mmm...


Mains: the smell upon arrival was devine. Loved breaking up and adding all the different fresh herbs.
Note bibs! It felt a bit silly being bibbed-up, but with all the slurping a worthy wear if you've dressed up.



I liked Pho in Clerkenwell. The service was top-notch, freindly from the moment we opened the door, but not looming or pressure to leave as our dinner out came to a close.
It's somewhere I'd go back to. Recommended for small intimate dinning.

Bonus surprise ...

Stepping out info the fresh air we crossed the road and around the corner, at speed, came a throng of night-time rollerbladers. If anyone knows anything about that do let me know: not that I can rollerblade but it did look fun!
I didn't have time to think about picture so only caught a few visual "impressions". There were a lot more of them than pictured. Where they came from, or where they were going I have no idea.
