Reliable chippie open late in the West End?
Is there a reliable chippie open late (til midnight) in the Bloomsbury/Covent Garden/Leicester/Soho area?
Not expecting Fryers Delight level, but is there anything decent? I'll be arriving from NYC at nine and would look forward to something other than a stale bap.
Any help will be greatly appreciated
A safe bet for a quick, reliable bite is Eds Easy Diner in Moor Street, at the Cambridge Circus end of Old Compton Street. But I guess if youre arriving from NYC, a burger and chips may not be high on your list of must eats (good though they are). I think it's open until 1am, or thereabouts.
Why is it always the simple requests that prove to be the hardest to satisfy?
I was going to recommend the Rock and Sole Plaice in Endell Street, CG but I believe it closes quite early; 10pm?
And there is no way you're going to make it from LHR to CG in under an hour...
Do you really need to do fish & chips?!?
re: Rana Mainee
I'd like to do fish and chips, but I guess I can survive without them. I actually had decent fish and chips in Soho at midnight a few months ago on Greek or Garrick street in a completely awful looking joint.
I appreciate your help. I thought there might be some gem I was missing. There's always Doner.
re: Jonny T. Dale
I think you must mean Greek Street. And as a pescetarian, I can't help you with your choice of Doner purveyors...
My only recommendation would be to grab a bite to eat, get yourself down to Bar Italia, get an espresso and watch Soho at its best...a perfect start to a London trip.
Actually, they do a reasonable ciabatta/mozzarella/tomato sandwich...
