Wahaca was pretty packed the other lunchtime, but it's just really
very good, so not hard to see why. The foodhall is especially
irritatingly full, and probably will be until after the January Sales.

It's probably the best chinese restaurant in London. Not amazingly
cheap, but actually genuinely authentic (not 'british authentic').

Kebab Chicken Pizza Fish or Falafel Chicken Kebab Pizza? Everywhere in
W12 seems to offer multiple styles of crap food. I've got a list of
favourite places around there to eat though. Here are some of the
picks outside of westfield

- Bamboo House (Chinese) -- best in london. Wood Lane.
- Esearn Kheaw (Thai) -- best in london. Uxbridge Road.
- Tatra (Polish) -- excellent, and very meaty. vegetarians steer
clear. Goldhawk Road.
- Patio (Polish) -- feels like a grandma's living room and does the
best borscht. Goldhawk Road.
- Abu Zaad (Syrian) -- very good Mezze. Uxbridge Road.
- Mr Falafel (Palestinian) -- Really good falafel wraps. New Shepherds
Bush Market.
- Ochi -- Second best Jerk Chicken in London
