Fox... most restaurants shut between lunch and dinner (apart from pubs and chain type places). Try finding somewhere decent for an early dinner at 5pm, it's not easy.

Anyway, I think it looks very nice and will hopefully be able to give it a go at some point.

Arh.. Never got down to the second line..

So Chicken of the woods is not actually chicken.. misleading.

Everything tastes 'a bit like' chicken apparently - I've heard that said of snake, some types of grub, etc. etc. That may just mean that much chicken is virtually tasteless - though that wouldn't be true of chicken eaten in the past, which was (unless you were very rich) mainly old layers now past it.

Chicken IS virtually tasteless, apart from leg and thigh meat.

That's why it is used in Curries ... Tandooried ... coated in spiced flour and fried .. to give it flavour..

Really? It tastes like, erm, chicken to me..whenever I cook it, or buy it in a shop, takeaway, or restaurant.

Chicken breast certainly has, shall we say a "delicate" flavour compared with other meats...

Does anyone know what is happening to the Bath Store opposite the old Harvester?
Not sure if it the site is changing hands or if its a store refit?

The flavour of meat known as Umami comes from the way it's cooked to achieve some colour which then in tern creates some magic called the Maillard reaction. This is what we generally think of as 'meatiness'. Even the best quality steak will have little flavour if not cooked correctly. Over wood or charcoal is a perfect way to achieve this flavour, oh and did I mention we sell wood and charcoal at our shop on Underhill Rd ;)

So it looks like we have a much-needed new pizza place opening up in Peckham Rye, a couple of doors up from Mr Bao.
Voodoo Rays - they have branches in Shoreditch and Dalston apparently.

"Much needed" - I do hope there is a heavy sense of irony in this statement. If there's one thing we don't need more of locally, it's pizza places! Saturation point reached!

Chicken is only tasteless if it is cheap factory farmed rubbish.

The Sainsbury's near The Plough has a vacant shop next to it, in turn next to the Polish shop. Anyone got an idea as to what it will be?

More gently tongue in cheek tbh than heavy irony

I think the premises in question has been vacant and boarded up for quite a while, so would rather have a new pizzeria than that any day...

That's the old tile shop - better a pizza place than boarded up - although we do have a lot of pizza places.

There's still plans to built a block of flats behind the bus stop there too and the flats on the old car park on the corner is now built.

That's not actually true. Factory farmed chicken are fattened up and Fat is what gives all meat and poultry its flavour. Although the process can be cruel.

Corn fed chickens have no fat and taste of corn not chicken.

If it makes you happy to spend 15-18 on a Label Anglais with enough meat for 2 then so be it.

Not everyone has the money to shop at William Rose or the time to travel up town to the Ginger Pig.

Please let's not make this about the taste of chicken and who's happy to pay for something and who's not, it'll only descend into shoebox in the middle the road waving contest.

Does anyone have any clue what Swaddesh and the old laundrette will be? I think the Irish shop premises will be used by the cinema as expansion space but no idea about the other two.

Also, a librarian at Grove Library said the development across the road that will include flats, a new library and a retail shop has leased the retail space to M&S. Anyone else hear this?

The former newsagent's opposite the KwikFit is to be a nail parlour, according to the person working there. He nodded to the other nail parlour a few doors down but I did not know whether he meant that one would be moving to the new premises or just that it was going to be a separate one.
Also, the new shop next to the Polish shop near to Sainsbury's is going to be what?

Posted by shell 29 July, 2017 12:38

i wonder if the council will just allow that nail parlour to open .It should've had planning permission, its a different usage to the newsagents .. and on a stretch that has its retail usages supposedly protected..

messageRe: New Shops in Dulwich / Peckham
Posted by nxjen 29 July, 2017 13:41

I would have thought they both fall under Class A1 usage. If so I don't believe a nail parlour will need planning permission.

New sign has gone up over old Duck Egg - the return of Luca's cafe and bakery

messageRe: New Shops in Dulwich / Peckham

Remind me of Luca - mind is a blank.
Near to the Plough, the former corner shop looks like it will become again a corner shop - there was some movement there recently.
The butcher's shop opposite the Plough could do with someone taking it over - it has been tagged quite boldly already.
