Pantry at 108

Afternoon tea is perhaps the summit of pure indulgence and the byword for British eccentricity, and Pantry at 108 provides a very good version of it, from noon until 6pm.

Franco Manca

The puffy, charred cornicione (crust) give way to a paper-thin middle, and the base is chewy and salty, with just the hint of sourness for an added dimension.

Biju Bubble Tea

Fragrant bursts of cinnamon and cardamom are used to great effect in an iced chai tea, full of festivity and aromatic warmth, with the vital tapioca balls.

Bobo Social

The burgers are petite and proper, appropriate against the flowery crockery and country-chic interior. Barely fist-sized, the waist conscious will have no guilt at indulging here.

Dozo

Dozos black cod is marinated in saikyomiso for a period not shorter than 24hours, and then grilled. The result; an unbelievably soft fillet, its skin glazed in the miso and blackened with flame.

Stax Diner

Stax is a burger joint styled on Southern American soul food. Named after a Memphis record label, the short menu includes fried green tomatoes, shrimp po’ boys, and a bias toward Cajun spicing.
