So I was invited and head the pleasure to visit my favourite chippy Kerbisher and Malt.
It was pleasant for the owners to teach us about getting ‘good fish and chips’ and this is the reason why I think they are so ahead of the market. Arrived and enjoyed the networking and complimentary drinks and au d’oeuvres. Amazing.
The owners Saul and Nick introduced their concept and advised the difference on how they source and make their fish and chips. It was interesting as it certainly tells in the flavour.
Much to everyones joy we were provided with three different types of fish and each one was cooked in a different way, battered, grilled or Matzo which is breadcrumbed.
The chips were cooked twice and this provided a crispy lovely chip not too chunky and not too think like fries. These were complimented with their own made lemon mayonnaise, sweet chilli sauce and tartare. Not want to sound too much like a critic but these were amazing. Cannot fault.
All sides were sampled and plenty offered and have to champion the mushy peas and home made baked beans. These made the meal complete and my table was quiet.
We were served Muscadet, sherry and additional soft drinks. I normally have a soft drink with my fish and chips. As we had an American who just had arrived to London we thought it was good to give her Dandelion and Burdock and she loved it!
It was a joy to hear Kerbisher and Malts view on what they were serving and could clearly see their passion hypnotising the rest of us. Saul and Nick were clearly open to hear all thoughts and opinions and you know what they had them all covered. They have perfected a good nights meal here.
Well done for T to organise this event and long live Kerbisher and Malt.

So Potli is the new Indian restaurant replacing the old Tandoori Knights which had a 1980’s look about it. It’s always good to see a restaurant busy and Potli looked like they were busy and everyone smiling away. We sat downstairs next to the Kitchen in full view.
We received our starters that we did not order. We discussed having starters and then decided not too. This did not stop the waiter who ordered the starters we discussed and bought them to our table. As we had just come from the Askewine tasting event our eyes were now bigger than our stomachs. We kept the non ordered starters and it was a great idea to keep it. We had the ‘mixed non vegetarian platter’ that included chicken, lamb and fish.
There were three different types of chicken, two that were boneless and a whole thigh and leg. This was marinated beautifully and tender. There was a lamb chop and masala fish which was cooked to perfection. The flash flaked off and was nicely spiced.
We were happy with our starters.
Our mains had arrived and ordered the Chicken Korma Awadhi which has tender pieces of chargrilled chicken tikka in a smooth creamy gravy flavoured with green cardamom. The second dish was a Chicken Jhalfrezi a dish from Bengal, made of chicken tikka, peppers and green chilles cooked in light tomato sauce, flavoured with crushed coriander and lime. We would not have ordered so much chicken if we knew we were to have the starters.
I had ordered Lamb Green Masala made with fresh coriander, mint, and green chillies and flavoured with fenugreek, lime and pomegranate seeds. I was not impressed with my dish and even though I have eaten a lot of lamb in my life this was the first time I was not impressed with a Lamb dish as it was watery and lacked spice and too much lime juice.
The chicken dishes were good until we picked a stone out of the Chicken Jhalfrezi and yes it was a STONE. We called the manager who subsequently took the stone and had a huge row thereafter with the chef. Everyone was watching and this added a bit of amusement. My other half lost her appetite after pulling the stone from her mouth.
The rice was good and the nan was good.
The table next to us had waited an hour for the mains. They were such a polite couple who did not complain as much as me or my friends would have. They advised they will not be going back.
I am not in hurry to go back however the first half of the night did start well.

Love this space. You can go to enjoy a film and they will show a classic on early Sunday evening. They have great coffee, food and drinks and what a place to people watch. London needs more places like Riverside Studios and all year round they have great events. AMAZING
