The Heathcote & Star is – as we all know – one of E11’s gems, its capacious, almost rural garden making socially distanced boozing and dining pretty stress-free.
That’s not to say it doesn’t get pretty busy: on our Tuesday visit during the first week of Eat Out To Help Out, it was “like a Saturday night”, said the friendly manager Mark.
If you’re not familiar with its Clapton flagship, new residency Krapow’s aim is simply to “bring proper Thai Street food to London.”
Flavours have a strong influence from Northern Thailand, which are entirely different, punchier and much more complex, with international notes from neighbouring countries Laos, Myanmar (Burma) and China.
Their meat is all UK-sourced and comes from Hixson of Smithfield, with vegetables and herbs from Gardner’s Fresh produce and Asian ingredients from Thai Tana.
