An e-mail from me to John earlier that day:
I’ve booked us a table at Ba Shan – 24 Romilly Street – for 19:30. Probably a good idea to get there early if anything. I’ll come over your way c18:30 and call you on your mobile once I emerge from TCR tube station – if we walk towards each other I suspect we’ll meet each other!
Ba Shan. Aka Bashan. Hunanese food. Here is the Bashan website.
I seem to recall really liking the food, although not to the extent that I would prefer it to its sibling Barshu.
A selection of small dishes I seem to recall. Perhaps we over-ordered. Me to John the next day:
Just a quick thank you message for last night – great to see you and a very good meal, for which I am suffering as expected this morning. Thank goodness no clients until lunchtime!
John might recall more details.
