‘The 5ive’ do Lunch

EV’s – Isabella Street

Well, here we are, I’m in my favourite city – London – and meeting with ‘The 5ive’ for Lunch.

We’re ‘The 5ive’ because there are 7 of us (I know! Don’t ask, it’s complicated! 😉) who met and collaborated on a training project back in 1999. We’ve met semi-regularly ever since – and just to keep our mental arithmetic sharp, today, there’s just four if us! 😁.

Our Restaurant of choice was ‘EV‘, a thoroughly reliable and enjoyable member of the TAS family of Restaurants – and one we’ve been to a gazillion times before. It’s a Turkish affair and located a short walk from Southwark Tube.

Our get-together was a perfect excuse for a belated birthday celebration for Angela too! 👍

Happy Belated Birthday Angela!

The food and service was as good as ever!

Yummy Starters!

…and Mains!

They’re used to be Lamb Meatballs here! 😁

I was first to depart around 3.10, in order to get across London and catch my Train – I made it with about 15 minutes to spare!

All-in-all a really good get-together and a chance to catch up with everyone’s news!

Lunch: Return to the Lamport Swan

The Swan at Lamport

It was a welcome return today to The Swan at Lamport (or the Lamport Swan as it’s also known). We haven’t been there for about a year (1st February 2018, in fact) and today we were catching-up with Ian & Ann, Alan & Mags for Lunch.

The Menu
Pumpkin & Sweet Potato Soup
Goan Fish Curry
Tiramasu Cheesecake

And our verdict? An impressive experience all-round! 😁

Julie, our Server, was clearly very experienced and looked-after us exceptionally well throughout our meal – Top marks for that!

The food itself was just as good as we remember it – generous portions, full of flavour and well presented too!

Another fine Lunch at another venue that’s being added to our (very) short shortlist of GREAT places to eat!
