Who doesn't love a good Italian?
If you genuinely don't, I have just the restaurant that will most certainly change your mind.
Welcome to Padella - a new Italian fella on the block in Borough Market, Southwark.
Since this place is not a linger-longer spot, rather a quick bite, the queue moves pretty swiftly. Either way, it's worth the wait!
A short and sweet menu will be placed in front of you while a buzzing atmosphere kicks off. The chefs with their kitchen on show will certainly entertain you.
All of the pasta dishes sounded marvellous, but always a girl for exquisite simplicity, I chose the Tagliarini with Slow Cooked Tomato Sauce. And the Ravioli of Ricotta with Sage Butter for Jess.
We also ordered a round of the beautifully warm and crisp sourdough bread (because clearly we were not indulging in enough carbs already).
It was all very rich and comforting. The perfect winter warmer. I think it's safe to say Jess enjoyed it...
Grab a friend and sit at the bar. Or, sit by the window where you can people-watch and see the mighty view of The Shard.
London's restaurant scene sure is booming, I can't wait to tick a few more places off my list in the next few weeks (yes...no New Year diet for me, whoops!).
