We were recently invited along to try out a sushi class at Greenwich Pantry, courtesy of Obby. Being in South East London and all about seafood we couldn’t resist!

With its beautiful interiors, drawing inspiration from its Nordic origins, the venue is slick, modern and fresh. The London branch follows openings in New York and Tokyo. We headed along for their Brunch and Beats, their nordic cuisine paired with music courtesy of some top-notch Scandi DJ’s.
You come to Brat to get the Turbot. The place is even named after its hero ingredient (it means turbot in old english colloquialism). So in reality this review could be about three sentences about that buttery soft turbot, crispy around the edges, falling off the bone and doused in butter. However Brat offers more than its namesake.
London is awash with restaurants focusing on seafood at the moment – music to a Gills Gal’s ears. From street food traders becoming permanent to a Nathan Outlaw protegee coming to Shoreditch there is so much seafood on offer, and so little time.
Cornish chef opens up seafood restaurant in East London to rave reviews. Has there been a more perfect scenario for this Cornish Gills Gal? We couldn’t wait to get down to Cornerstone (though you might have to if you pick a prime seating time as it is proving popular!) and sample the menu and feel like we had been whisked back to home.
We’ve been a big fan of Claw since our first bite of their seafood street food and have been seeking out their crab fries ever since. They recently opened up a restaurant just off Carnaby Street in London and last week we finally headed down to check it out.
Self-trained chef James Young has been touring Italy for his inspiration (James can we trade lives with you please?) and it shows in this menu. We started with pretty much every starter there was – burrata, octopus with potato and lemon and charred aubergine with chilli. All of which were delicious and the octopus was cooked perfectly.
Kiln opened in the latter half of 2016, from the team behind Smoking Goat. It has a focus on ethical meat and sustainable fish, which is music to a Gills Gals ears.
With its sunny and elegant decor, and the open kitchen already cooking up Peruvian flavours, for a second you could have convinced me that it wasn’t actually two degrees outside.
