Gunpowder Summer Terrace is now open at Tower Bridge

Renowned for its modern take on Indian-home style cooking, Gunpowder has launched a new Summer Terrace at the Tower Bridge restaurant, complete with a fantastic new Terrace Menu. The Gunpowder Summer Terrace is open daily from 12pm.

Founder Harneet Baweja and executive chef Nirmal Save have created light seafood dishes such as Grilled wild black water oyster in curry leaf butter with fish roe & garlic and Pickled Scottish rainbow trout, red onions, pepper, kadi ceviche especially for the new terrace. For the meat lovers, there is Nargisi kofta – spiced black pork scotch egg and, for the vegetarians, the ever-popular Chutney cheese sandwich returns for the summer season. Accompanying the food is a range of refreshing drinks including Drunken Chaiwala (iced masala chai, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, with or without gin) and chilled biodynamic wines available by the glass or bottle.

Surrounded by planters and screened off from passers by, the intimate, 14-cover terrace has a great view of Tower Bridge.

BOB’s Lobster is now Open in London Bridge

Having made a name for itself as the one of a kind 1950’s VW camper food truck serving seafood extravagance kerbside and popping up at street food markets, festivals, fashion shows and events since 2013, BOB’s Lobster has now opened in its first permanent site, at 71, St. Thomas Street, London Bridge, SE1 9AL.

Founders and childhood friends Rob Dann and Jamie Watts received rave reviews and many accolades for their American seafood and wine pop-ups. And so, it was a natural step for them to open permanently under the revamped arches of London Bridge.

Using the very best quality local ingredients, with Native lobster coming from the south coast and the Shetlands, the team are excited to share their most incredible and memorable dishes. Street food signature plates include Ahi Tuna Tacos, Lobster Mac ‘n’ Cheese and the famous Lobster & Crayfish Roll (an astoundingly delicious combination of a soft custom brioche packed with lobster claw, tail, knuckle & sweet crayfish with rapeseed mayo and house celery salt).

Camino Launches Bespoke Puerto Bello Pale Ale

Camino, well known for its incredible Spanish food, now has some exciting news on the drinks front with the launch of its very own bespoke Puerto Bello Pale Ale with Portobello Brewing Co.

The Portobello Brewing Company was a natural choice for the team at Camino, who had worked with them in the past. Joe, Rob and Head Brewer Farooq perfectly understood the brief for a low ABV beer (4%), brewed with Spanish hops, that would complement tapas.

The result was the Puerto Bello Pale Ale; a light beer that can be enjoyed throughout the year on its own or paired with tapas. Brewed using Spanish hops, it has citrus peel aromas, a cool rich texture and a refreshing taste.

Epic March special at Camino: The Big Iberico burger

Camino’s epic new special, The Big Iberico burger, is a thing of beauty.

The Spanish-style creation is now available across all sites until the end of March. It includes the finest quality Iberico pork patty, chorizo and penapelada cheese, with buttermilk onion rings, tomato and watercress, all packed into a soft and pillowy brioche bun. Served with patatas bravas and topped with black garlic aioli and bravas sauce, it’s not only extremely delicious, but also very good value at just £9.75.

If you’re feeling in need of a healthy antidote, why not try the Chargrilled calçots with Romesco sauce? Also on the menu for March, it’s priced at £6.75.
