We arranged to meet each other last Friday and after one of the longest Fridays in a while, the afternoon finally draw to a close and it was time to leave work. Lazy me thought that I will scooter to work rather than taking the PT Cruiser (PT = Public Transport) which means that I unfortunately (well at my age its more fortunately) had to scooter from work to Soho therefore I could only enjoy a few glasses of wine to ensure I stay within the alcohol unit limits. Fortunately traffic was flowing which was a total surprise for a Friday afternoon.
Coming into Soho, one noticed all the rainbow flags and am reminded that this weekend is the Pride celebrations. Once again, I am reminded of what humility, pain and suffering humans went through (pointing out this humility, pain and suffering are also imposed by humans) to have a generation enjoying themselves in a open and controlled environment. If the world could take a closer step towards Desmond Tutu’s statement, it would be a totally different place and maybe Soho would be a reminder of how we love each other rather than the stark reminder of what happened and still happening now! These thoughts are only emphasised as I walked past the Admiral Duncan on a significant weekend.
Well in high spirit I had a quick drink at Boheme Kitchen and Bar, sitting in the window ledge and looking out at some of the charters teasing us for what’s to come over the weekend. We arranged to meet at 6pm so it was time to head to off and see if Burger and Lobster meet up with my highly set expectations.
As we arrived our friends were already at the bar enjoying a rose wine. Now I have no problem with a glass of rosé when its maybe a Cote du Rhone however the “Echo Falls Zinfandel” Rosé style that the UK love doesn’t really float my taste buds. Please don’t take much attention as this statement comes from someone who loves adding two ice cubes to my white wine, and that’s exactly what I ordered.
We were showed to our table and the waiter in her 1960’s dolly dress, and red lipstick take a casual seat next to me and asked if we’ve all been here. Being our first time we just kept quite whilst our friends instantly say, yes! The server started rambling down asking what we wanted. From my understanding its a simple menu – Either a Burger or a Lobster all with chips and a salad for £20.00. A bit pricey but we placed our orders. My partner and I decided to share our plates so one chose a lobster the other a burger. Without asking the plates arrived and we both had 1/2 a lobster and 1/2 a burger – now that’s what I call service.
Overall verdict is that the food is fab, a good burger and the lobster is very good too. The atmosphere is great and the place is packed. Once a table is cleared there are a few other parties waiting to replace the table. This is a great Friday night spent with friends and good food. If you find yourself around the area, or close to any of the other restaurants. Go and enjoy a burger and lobster, share it if you wish. I loved it.
