Bangkok noodle soup hits the spot ..... repeatedly

A few months ago, I wrote a nostalgic piece about lost, favourite restaurants, those places you drift back to from time to time. They may not have the best food (though they may) but something about them suits you. Oishii and the others have gone but the stock can be replenished. One such is Kaosarn, a small, Thai place in Brixton Village. It is a typical Brixton Village place and feels a bit like being in a shack.

Lost Restaurants in South London: Oishii

We were in Streatham a few days ago and decided to pop into a favourite restaurant for some noodles. Lo and behold, our beloved Oishii had gone and in its place was Saigon Bistro (or will be very soon).

We’d been going to Oishii fairly regularly since it opened about fifteen years ago. When our daughter was born, she had come with us. When she was a little older, the staff gave her bowls of rice on the house. Later she became a fan of chicken katsu don and crispy aromatic duck.

Foxes Run Wild On Bin Collection Day

Whilst it is fair to say that services in Dulwich do seem to be slowly cutting back, one particular situation that is really worsening is the sabotage of rubbish on collection day everywhere. This is an issue that has serious health implications. Where waste food and other bits are spread around, we cannot expect the bin collection teams to start picking individual bits up off the street.
