c&r in rupert court, london: superb asian
in a small alley off rupert street, amongst the crowd of very many indifferent chinese restaurants is this small, cheerful shrine to deliciousness. EVERYTHING i've eaten at c&r has been made with care and pride; even the roti, which only shows up as an appetiser (in roti canai) is a marvel. the laksa soup is beautifully balanced, but i've no idea if its the singaporean or malaysian version being served here.
for what its worth, the restaurant bills itself as 'authentic malaysian/singaporean cuisine', and while i have no competence to judge authenticity, i'd still bet on it: the care shown here rarely is given to bastards.
and i got the tip at india club ....
