Food for Thought strawberry, blackcurrant and banana scrunch

To miss on the lunchtime crush, late lunch at Food for Thought in Covent Garden.

The menu was something of a disappointment, and if this is now standard fare at Food for Thought then very depressing as this has always been a very good place to eat.

Thai this, curry that, Mexican, Turkish. No, no, no. Please stick to what you are good at, not try to be all things and good at nothing. Even the soup was a curry soup.

We were also overcharged as we had soup and salad and these should have been a meal deal, we were charged for individual items.

The tables had not been cleared. No excuse as not busy.

The desserts though were still very good. We had strawberry, blackcurrant and banana scrunch, which was delicious.

I did wonder, has Food for Thought changed hands. Something has changed and not for the good. A pity as has up to now been a very very good place to eat.

Synchronicity: At Food for Thought, you share the table with strangers. As we were leaving a very attractive female asked could she sit at our table. I said yes. On the table three books by Paulo Coelho. She said she had read in her own language. I asked what was her language. Turkish. We had just been talking about Turkey and Istanbul. On the board just chalked up for the evening menu: Turkish plate – Spinach, feta, sun dried tomato & olive pizza; aubergine & bulghar topped with yoghurt, mint & flaked almonds; a crunchy cabbage salad, & humous.
