Riverfront Bar and Kitchen


BFI Southbank, Waterloo
London
SE1 8XT

After seeing Iron Man 2 at the IMAX, P and I decided some food was in order so we wandered down to the South Bank. We snagged a seat at the BFI cafe by the windows overlooking the river and promptly ordered beers. I went with scampi and chips while P had a cheeseburger - both of us were happy with our choices. I recently had a conversation with someone about what 'scampi' actually is - it means different things in different countries. In the UK it seems to always mean shrimp (or as they call them, prawns), fried in a breadcrumbed shell, alongside fries (chips). I am starting to freak myself out with my new-found love of tartar sauce - the one here tasted homemade with lots of nice capers chopped up in it. Anyway - good place for a meal and a chat if you're in the Waterloo area, since it's not exactly a hot spot for dining.
