Singer Toyah Willcox's five favourite restaurants
Pasha, 1 Gloucester Road SW7, Tel: 020 7589 7969.
Tube: Gloucester Road
My favourite place. I eat there weekly, even
if I'm on tour. It's homely and has the best vegetarian menu I know,
with roasted pumpkins, figs and really exotic puddings.
The Bollo House, 13 Bollo Lane W4, Tel: 020 8994
Tube: Chiswick Park
My local: a trendy gastropub. They do things
like onion or Stilton soup, venison, fish: and chips like quartered potatoes.
But I go for the ambience.
Nan King, 332 King Street W6, Tel: 020 8748 7604.
Tube: Ravenscourt Park
More expensive than most Chinese restaurants
as it's very media, but you can still sit in all night and they won't kick
you out. They do my favourite Chinese dessert, which is red bean pancakes
normally you can only find them in Chinatown.
Le Shop, 329 King's Road SW3, Tel: 020 7352 3891.
Tube: Sloane Square
A creperie with a cult following, it's cheap
and cheerful. The staff are unemployed actors, always trying to sell you
their latest idea. But the food is fantastic and crepes range from tuna
and mozzarella, to baked beans and sour cream. My favourite is cream cheese
and ginger. Yum.
Jasons Restaurant, Bloomfield Road W9, Tel: 020
Tube: Warwick Avenue
A lovely fish restaurant by the canal offering
anything from plaice and cod to shark. It's a bit showbizzy, but as a singer
the punters don't recognise you.
