Coconut Grove, Highbury, London
One of the features of living in Arsenal are the crazy, enormous crowds when there’s any home fixture for the football team. Jen and I were tempted by the many, greasy smelling food trucks that appear on these days but we ended up preferring the home comforts of something off Deliveroo. I went with Thai and we ordered from a nearby place, Coconut Grove. It took the estimated time and then we had our pad thai (£6.95), chicken satay (£4.95) and beef green curry (£7.45) ready to go with our Married at First Sight binge-streaming. Large sizes and some tasty food, exactly what we were after. The satay sauce was addictive and the green curry was better than expected with an eclectic mix of bamboo shoots, eggplant and zucchini. Probably a bit too heavy on the bamboo though. The pad thai was good, and classically on point with the right sweet/ sour notes. Happy aon all three counts. Does that makes it a hat trick?
