I have to say, I was disappointed with Taste of London at Tobacco Dock this year.
Being a huge fan of Meatopia, the event lacked the laid back feel and easy-going atmosphere is competitor seamlessly delivers.
A ruby in the rubble was Assado, owned by Cyrus Todiwala, who were serving Goan dishes influenced by Portuguese and Brazilian cuisine.
We tried their Marinated Octopus on spiced Olive Tapenade, which was a delight.
The stand out dish, however, was their Ostrich Bhuna with rice. Thick slices of Ostrich fillet fell apart in the mouth, whilst the classic Bhuna sauce introduced a rich mixture of robust spices. The saffron rice tied this mini-dish together beautifully, and left us wanting more.
We can't wait to visit their restaurant in Waterloo after sampling a few mouthfuls of their food.
