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
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.
