Just a short one - these are some well dodgy pictures of the food at the #MEATEASY in New Cross. I dutifully brought my camera along to the opening party only to find that I'd forgotten the memory card like some sort of idiot so the good ol' iPhone sufficed.
The fries are heavenly; thin, crispy and salty. Onion rings were huge and served in a stack, there's obviously a deft hand at the fryer. Burgers were as good as always, and the macaroni cheese laden with onion was so addictive I almost filled myself up on it. But I still had room for buffalo wings, so deliciously crisp and moist that we could scarcely believe they weren't breadcrumbed. My absolute favourite, though, was the chilli cheese dog. The sausage tasted smoked and was juicy and bouncy, horrifyingly messy.
Yes, there is a wait for your food. Yes, you will have to queue to place your order. But it's not a fast-food joint; have some (excellent) cocktails, have a sit down. In a testament to how good it is, when I was thrashing around in an insomnia-induced strop in the wee hours all I could think about was the food I'd eaten; I was like a woman possessed.
I still am.
