Busaba – London

Today, I want to talk about one of my favourite place to eat in London!

Busaba is an Asian/Thai chain restaurant located in different areas of the city, so it won’t be too hard to find one! 

Shoreditch has a magical atmosphere, the restaurant has a romantic atmosphere created by dim orange lights and little bamboo fountains with pink flowers floating on the water at the entrance. It’s a place where you can go either for drinks with your girls or for a date. I went some time ago with some work colleagues for a birthday and I really enjoyed it. They have lots of vegan and vegetarian options, so it won’t be a struggle to choose what to eat. 

Bond Street is more suitable for work lunches. The restaurant itself is not really big, but the disposition of the tables is very practical. The service is fast and the waiters are polite and friendly. You will see that their clientele is pretty much corporate people working in the area. I went for the first time with my parents, they never tried Thai cuisine before and they were happily surprised.

Shepher’s Bush is located just before Westfield, so it’s ideal for an informal lunch before going shopping or a nice dinner with friends after going to the movies. I went to Busaba in Shepherd’s Bush many times, especially when I was living in the area. What I can say? It never disappoints me!

With fresh crunchy veggies, crispy tofu, garnished with crushed peanuts and fresh spring onions, this Pad Thai is a classic are you’re gonna love it. You can add soy sauce for an extra taste, but it’s delicious even keeping it basic. Among the soft drinks Guava Collins is the best, not too sweet and so refreshing!

The Sriracha Ho Fu Noodles are a flavor explosion in your mouth. Stuffed with wok-fried mushrooms, red peppers and baby spinach seasoned with sweet chilli, soy and ginger sauce will fill your belly guilt free.

Fried to perfection (who likes oily fingertips?!), the Por-Pi Jay are crispy vegetable spring rolls with Thai sweet chilli sauce, ideal as a starter or for sharing. The spicy and super creamy Green Curry Jay is infused with lemongrass, chilli and ginger garnished with courgette, peas, zucchini, aubergines, onions, bamboo and sweet basil. It’s accompanied by a small portion of rice of your choice, I had coconut milk rice and it was delicious, down side: the portion was pretty small. A hearty dish that will make your heart sing!
