Afternoon flight to London Heathrow on Saturday.
Took the tube to King’s Cross and changed there to Angel.
Lovely sunny weather.
Before dinner had a glass of white wine at Exmouth Arms
Had booked a table at Moro at 7pm
Unfortunately the online booking by
“City Eating Online Booking”
was not in use at Moro even though had received a confirmation,
but no problem,
the professional staff found a free table without any hassle.
Had a glass of Cava with home-made craggy and chewy bread & olive oil
Cauliflower & Cumin soup with pine nuts & chilli butter as a starter
- tasty soup with North African flavour
- thick texture without any cream

Wood roasted chicken with patatas bravas, aioli
- Simple yet delicious Spanish countryside food
- Quite a big portion

Piece of Manchego cheese
- always good! Nice thin slices
. The rose pedal ice cream looks so beautiful
Excellent food, nothing too fancy
Professional, friendly staff
Busy place but relaxed atmosphere
Simple, comfortable interior
- wooden floor, pub-type tables & chairs
There’s a long bar
where one can have a drink
while waiting hopefully for a table or eat tapas
Absolutely no wonder that Moro was voted
“The UK Restaurant of the Year 2009”
by the readers of “Observer Food Monthly”
“ There’s something very reassuring
about fighting your way through the draught curtain
into this bustling,
delicious-smelling space
and seeing one or both Sams
(the husband and wife team of Sam & Sam Clark)
in the open kitchen cooking up
one of their brilliant African dishes”
The proprietors are unusual,
not just because they are husband and wife
and have the same Christian name,
but because they are, to this day,
more interested in baking bread than building empires.
No Ferraris left on double yellow lines here,
just one of the Sams going home on their pushbike in the rain”
34-36 Exmouth Market
London, EC1
