Square Meal Review of Paradise by way of Kensal Green ?

GK Chesterton coined the phrase, which was clearly too much for the owners to resist – although the quirky moniker fits nicely with the oddball feel of this Kensal Green fun palace. From the wildly decadent interiors (marble busts, swirling drapes, chandeliers, grandiose paintings) to live bands and DJs, there’s a lot going on here – although the kitchen also puts plenty of effort into the food. Sit in the lavishly attired restaurant and enjoy bright, jazzy dishes based on ingredients mostly from these shores: the hog board is hard to resist, or you might fancy the crispy duck-egg salad before tackling melting pork belly or sea bass with pancetta, yellow beetroot and cauliflower purée. With a great roof terrace, karaoke room, ‘cheeky Sunday roasts’ and more besides, this place has good-time distractions at every turn.

    A Lot of Chop :: Rhubarb in Paradise

    ‘One bowl, two spoons’ may just be the biggest mistake I make this year. Two reasons for this. Let me explain. The first is that my lady has a sister and three brothers. So whilst I may think I know my way round the plate, she’s trained and positively owns it. It was pudding time and immediately I was scolded for ‘mixing’ the crumble with the custard. Mon fucking Dieu! I was afforded the luxury of no more than three mouthfuls. ‘another bite and you won’t get a massage later’ etc. etc. This was some machiavellian dining...
