Goode and Wright gives you ample reason to venture to the heart of Portobello Rd when it’s not a bustling Saturday market day or Carnival. This inviting Franco-British bistro offers a  fervently seasonal and very creative menu, putting a twist on classic dishes that’ll seduce the sh!t out of your palate. The ‘duck egg in a basket’ is soft-boiled, embedded in a thick slice of brioche and topped with chorizo, truffle honey and pecorino. Yes blud, that tastes as good as it sounds. The crab French onion soup is sided with toast delicately adorned with garlic flowers and generous bits of lovely crab. For mains, we had slow roast pork belly, sticky BBQ ribs alongside the most delicious asiette of vegetables – think Coeur De Boeuf tomatoes, chubby end-of-season asparagus, char grilled broccoli and a whack of cheese-on-toast – French style. Not sure I need to say much more other than this place lives up to its name. Go. / Chloe McCloskey
