Caravan Bankside

There’s a really interesting mix of influences going on in the cooking at Caravan. East Asian, Mediterranean and Spanish flavours all muck in together in a way that, on paper made me a little nervous, but on the plate delighted. Take for instance my seasonal bellini – with strawberry and balsamic – it bordered on savoury but complimented all the dishes in this very marvellous way.

The place itself is easy to eat in. Light and cool on a scorcher of a day, Max mostly slept, but when awake was happy in his surroundings. Trendy, friendly waitstaff were delighted to have him and as I glanced around I saw several other small fries.

What’s good? The stilton and peanut wantons, the Jamon croquettes with saffron mayonnaise, the den miso pork ribeye and the lamb meatballs all pleased.

Kid friendly? Without question. There are three stairs to enter the restaurant though, so if you’re dining alone you’ll need help with your buggy.
