Begging Bowl Thai Restaurant

Peckham Ryes Begging bowl restaurant

I spent a few hours with my brothers at the Begging Bowl Thai restaurant in Peckham Rye’s Bellenden  road for a celebratory meal .Sitting  by their large open windows, enjoying the the rare London sun, the  first  30 mins were spent quizzing the youngest brother about how he managed to pull off 2 good job offers in one afternoon. The secret seems to be a bucket load of self belief mixed with a dash of the invincibility of youth. As the cocktails were flowing, very easy, it was time to order food . A friendly member of staff came over and said ‘sharing platters’. We all stared at her……my brothers and I do not share food. After a few seconds it was agreed  to go for three large individual dishes and two smaller sharing dishes, so that brotherly love could continue.  Here are some of the evenings pictures

Deep fried whole seabass, green mango, white turmeric, roasted rice , tamarind chilli dressing . Sweet , sticky and tangy , you find yourself drawn to this fish after the first and second bite. Caleb tucked into my dish quite a bit , however I felt it was okay to break our official no sharing pact as he was man of the day. I wouldn’t share this next time me thinks.

 

Guinea fowl green curry , palm heart , pea aubergine , apple aubergine

For good Thai food in a buzzing atmosphere, you will find it difficult finding a better restaurant in Peckham rye. I noticed that a few readers on Tripadvisor also rate this place highly.The Begging bowl is definitely a restaurant worth visiting

Our 5 dishes , 4 cocktails ,  2 beers , a bottle of water and unlimited sticky and jasmine rice all came up to £132 , so a just little on the pricey side for 3 people but not too bad considering its London.

If you are watching the pennies, On saturday  and sunday  the cocktails are 2 for the price of 1. So treat a friend, or  if like me, you would rather not share, go on your own and treat yourself.

I love eating out in Peckham rye. Check out another brilliant restaurant I reviewed. This ones Italian.

    That deep-fried sea bass looks amazing! I feel like it’s rare for me to come across a restaurant that serves deep-fried whole fish, but every time I find a place, I never regret ordering it.
