Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

A quirky blend of café and low-key restaurant with a Korean and Japanese menu, Café Andamiro is well worth a try. The interior is super laid-back, so you won’t feel out of place if you’re simply popping in for a tea and pastry instead of going for a full blowout. For starters, Korean fried chicken is pleasingly sticky and crunchy, while heamul pajeon, a substantial pancake, is generously filled with a variety of fresh seafood. In comparison, sweet tempura and crunchy flake rolls are a little less giving. Salmon teriyaki comes with rich sauce and sticky rice and watch out if you order the sizzling pork – it comes straight out from the grill so let it cool for a few seconds before you dive in. Homemade tea is a calming addition to what can be a lively little experience.
