Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Tucked away along a quiet cobbled street, Wee Buddha has character. Stylish and laid-back, the urban look makes for a comfortable atmosphere to enjoy a favourite tipple – especially with some food, as the full flavours and rich sauces are nicely balanced by refreshing cocktails designed to complement the menu. Veggie gyoza are a good start: fresh and with an excellent texture. For mains a Malay curry with steamed jasmine rice should hit the spot, with its warming punchy spices and perfectly cooked rice. If a beer is more your thing try their own light and refreshing Wee Buddha house craft beer, but if you’re sticking to cocktails the Studio 54 combines soft passion fruit flavours with a zesty lime kick.
