100 Islington

I love it around Angel & Islington, mainly because its full of my favourite things: Bars & Restaurants. So, when the Nudge announced a new restaurant (and half price food!), I was excited.

Part of the 100 group restaurants (they also have one in Hoxton & one in Kensington), the food has a mainly Asian influence, with some best of British & Mediterranean thrown into the mix. Because it is in small plates, you have no excuse to order & try far too much!

A perfect example of this mix was the Courgette & Halloumi Fritter with preserved lemon yoghurt- giving me flashes forward to summer and the Mediterranean while the incredible Singapore Soft Shell Chilli Crab with peanut and lime was clearly embracing the Asian influences.

The Chilli Fried Rice, chilli prawn sambal, fried egg, chinese sausage (top right) was a dream and reminded me a bit of an upscale Nasi Goreng (but that might have just been the egg on top). The Roasted Butternut Squash and Pumpkin Seeds upgraded itself from being a side dish by being so tasty.

It was the Pork belly however, that stole my heart, and guaranteed I would be coming back for more (even when it wasn’t half price!)
