Ting 'n Ting

The Caribbean food that Garfield Davidson cooks and sells from his trailer has long been a feature of Abbey Mills at the weekend and when I was in the office on Saturday I noticed that he has taken over the shop opposite his pitch as a cafe/restaurant that is now open from 11am to 8 pm every day except Monday.

He is something of a celebrity since he won a competition to prepare a packaged meal for Sainsburys in the year 2000. He's been on 'Ready Steady Cook' with Ainsley Harriot and he also travels around spreading the news with talks, displays and demonstrations.

Thus being on our doorstep he was a natural choice last night for the latest instalment of "Eat your way around the world in London".

We had the "fix up" meal which is made up of samples of most of the dishes he is selling on a particular day, so for £6.50 each we got jerk pork, stewed chicken, mutton curry, fried trevally fish, plantain, and beetroot coleslaw served up with rice and peas.

Great food, a good chat with the man himself and the best value by far of our campaign. You should run - not walk - to "Ting 'n Ting" at SW19 2RD without delay. You will waddle back.
