Sunshine Food Fever, Thursday, March 22, 2018
The last time Consider The Sauce embarked on this sort of adventure was back in 2014 when it was called Sunshine Pho Fever.
Since then, Sunshine central has diversified in a slow but steady way, so it’s just right the event is these days called Sunshine Food Fever, allowing guests a wider range of tastes and flavours from around the world.
I have a ball – I meet some CTS readers and talk with many interesting people.
And the food is all fine.
We start at Classic Curry, which has undergone a swisho makeover since the day this was a regular haunt for us.
Since then, the opening of very many Indian places closer to home has seen us overlook it.
Here, I opt for the veg option – veg manchurian, aloo bonda and paneer pakora.
Next stop is Afghan Shaheen … where we enjoy really superb, house-made samosas …
… lightly battered onion bhaji …
… mixed kebabs.
After the shortest of ambles up Hampstead Road, we’re at the lovely Ethiopian eatery the sails under the name Walia Ibex.
Here, the non-veg offering consists of the beef stew key wot, braised cabbage and lentils.
Our final stop is the fabulous Xuan Banh Cuon …
… for refreshing and tasty thach dua – coconut jelly.
