Squaremeal Review of Archipelago ?

It may have upped sticks and moved round the corner from its original premises, but Archipelago is still a must-visit for intrepid gastro-backpackers – especially as the relocation has prompted a new menu with the emphasis on gluten-free dishes and home-curing. Jump in at the deep end by ordering chilli-smoked python carpaccio with green tea and wasabi crackers or crocodile wrapped in vine leaves with honey-poached plums and pickled samphire, teamed with a love-bug salad straight out of I’m a Celebrity.

This memory leapt into my mind while I was looking through the menu at Archipelago.
