*apologies for lack of photos I hadn’t planned on blogging but couldn’t resist snapping a few*
I’ve been wanting to go to Ping Pong since, well what seems like forever, finally after some nagging and organising I managed to get the girls together for dinner.
First thing is Ping Pong is super popular we went into the Embankment branch at around 6:30 and it was buzzing. We managed to squeeze onto a sharing table and order some drinks before tackling the menu – the ordering system is a little odd, you tick the items you want before handing the list to a staff member, basically doing their job for them.
Having not been there before and having heard great things about the pork buns I ordered them along with an array of other goodies.
The food is amazing, full of flavour, warm fluffy dough filled with succulent pork, another food description sentence. However I wouldn’t suggest Ping Ping for a catch up dinner. I could hardly hear myself speak amongst the chatter of other tables and clinking at the bar.

I’ve been wanting to tell you all about this gem since I discovered it but I also want to keep it my little secret because table space is limited! WARNING if you don’t like seafood then don’t go here because its literally seafood and more seafood.
A and I hadn’t seen each other for a good month so decided it was time for a good old chit chat before she jets off on holiday, both of us were craving seafood and whilst trawling the internet discovered this little gem SeaWise in Camden. Now normally I am a Central London type of a girl – you know Covent Garden, Picadilly etc but I was excited to go a little further a field.
We arrived after getting a little lost-it’s within Camden stables and were welcomed into a little wooden shack of wonder that was bustling with people and mouth watering food. I suggest booking you can do so online. We were seated and after a few giggles with the waiter were left to peruse the menu which was filled with promise.
We shared starters which although they look plain were so tasty. Calamari with tartar sauce and Bang Bang prawns. The Bang Bang prawns were new to us and omgosh I could have eaten a whole platter to myself; the perfect mix of spices, crunchy batter and meaty prawns and the calamari well you can’t really go wrong with calamari.
Again we shared main courses because we just couldn’t decide on just one dish each. A picked the dressed crab with salad and I picked garlic lobster tail with chips. Everything is fresh, its bought that morning at the market and you can really tell when you taste the food; it’s simple but delicious. The crab was fantastic, it’s a cold dish and really refreshing in the summer with its colourful salad. The lobster tail was, well I really have no words it was so good. Just meaty, lobstery yumminess, like I said no words.
After paying our very reasonable tab -I don’t like discussing money but two courses of fresh seafood and two alcoholic drinks was around £25.00 each BARGAIN. We bumped into this little fellow outside the restaurant his name is Rascal and he is a French Bulldog and Pug cross. SeaWise is the perfect place for either a quick snack or a full on dinner, everything is fresh and cooked to order but what makes this place is the staff literally the friendliest people I have ever met in a restaurant.
