    Whilst the juices are flowing, where do people get Thai from? I use Thaicoons, but wondering if any better them

    Adomme was named by a food writer in the guardian this week as one of the best pizza places in London so it's might be a bit busy.

    Top tip if somewhere delivers by Deliveroo and themselves it will always be cheaper direct.

    I've had decent-ish food from Paya on Brixton Hill, but I've never had any *really* good Chinese or Thai from round here. Thaicoons is ok I guess but rarely get anything from there. Too many good curry houses instead!

    I know. We do No 2 for Chinese and have changed to curry now after reading duff reviews of all the Thai.
    Going for our current favourite Lal Baag in West Norwood. Indigo were/are good but take far too long (close to 2 hrs the last two times). Saffron has dropped down the list but I'd be willing to go again as when they're good they're very good
    Any other good curry houses at the moment ??

    We get Thai from Slurp in Streatham. Initially we were a bit dubious as they do Chinese, Thai and Japanese, but we enjoy it.

    Does anyone know what's happening on Tulse Hill by high trees? The road is blocked so there's been a heavy flow of trafficking c through HH to get to Brixton or up Christchurch to go via Brixton Hill. I've been noticing lots of thames water folk around the area of late. Maybe another burst pipe?

    Has anyone seen a slightly eccentric 70 year old guy walking round Tulse Hill with a specially-adapted shopping trolley full of 100 tennis rackets and tennis balls?!

    My mates saw him earlier near Hillside Gardens (didn't spot him myself cos I was already in the park with Little Hatter) but they reckoned he was some sort of tennis racket hoarder who'd decided to take his collection for a walk..... :hmm: :cool:

    He teaches in Hillside Gardens - very longstanding institution around here. He also drinks in the Castle/Castello deli on the alleyway to the station. You can turn up with kids any weekday/school holiday morning at 10am for tennis lessons £3 a pop. Well known and beloved of the Tulse Hill children and parents. You could probably already take Little Hatter - kids of all ages up there.

    (there are also a number of other coaches teaching kids/ adults on a more serious basis).

    cheers, yeah I thought he was something to do with the tennis club but my mates were convinced he was some sort of street drinker with a racket collection habit :oops:

    Saffron still OK actually from the last two times I've ordered. The only other place that you;ve not mentioned that I order fro is Ghurka Cottage in CP - quite pricy but lovely stuff. And I've once ordered from Papadom on the Hill, which was cheap with v generous portions. Seem to remember the curry as decent enough.
    Never had Indigo - must try sometime.

    Saffron has gone right down dill the last year or so, the curries remind me of a birds eye ready meal. Big shame because it used to be fantastic. Once i complained because it was that bad, they apologised and told me the reason it had changed for the worse because they have a new head chef.

    Are GC still doing 20% off if you order online and pay in cash? That makes it a lot more affordable :)

    Seems to be lots of criminal activity in the area ATM.

    ETA: saw loads of cop cars near the Nisa on Saturday

    nipped out to the Coop today to get a few bits of food and ended up on a pub crawl - cos of little hatter (he's 3) :D

    as we left coop he said "i wanna go p....[inaudible] daddy" - "you want to go to the park?" - "NO! The PUB!"

    so we went to the railway for a quick pint and he ran around the garden in the snow.

    as we left he said "I don't wanna go home i wanna go to the other pub" [result!] - so we went to the White Hart for a pint and he got high on J2o and did about 50 laps of the pool table on a sugar rush :D

    "I like it better here daddy, it's more fun."
