Lunch deal review at Cay Tre Soho

Food
Reporter: Phuong Thu Nguyen / Sub-editor:Maria Christina Chougkaeva   Cây Tre 42-43 Dean Street, London W1D 4QA Contact: 020 7317 9118 www.caytresoho.co.uk Price: Three courses: £19.96/ Lunch deal: £10/pp Cây Tre (means Bamboo) is hard to place in the restaurant food chain; it's certainly not a cheap noodle joint, but nor is it a hushed temple, designed to convey that this is authentic Vietnamese food as you’ll remember for life.

Being a real vegan is about fancy colourful brunches, advanced recipes and expens

Eat hot pot to beat the cold weather

Food
Winter is coming, it is time for hot pot. The temperature in London has dropped to 2 degrees celsius, and winter is on its way. Londoners can warm themselves up by visiting hot pot restaurants, such as Little Sichuan on Finchley road, Shuang Shuang and Ermei in Chinatown, or making hot pot at home.   Reporter: Yueer Wang   Sub-editor: Maria-Christina Chougkaeva   Walking passed Chinatown, several restaurants are already advertising their hot pots. That just shows how traditional Chinese cuisine is an indispensable companion for frigid days. Eating a hot and spicy dish during a cold day is much more satisfying than a cold sandwich. Hot pot literally means a metal pot containing a simmering flavoured broth. The pot is often placed at the centre of a table and is surrou

Food
This November, Nando’s is wishing you a very PERi Christmas by launching their first festive menu. There are two new seasonal offerings this year – both flame-grilled, both sounding quite delicious. And your morning coffee at Starbucks got its winter twist back as well Reporter: Visnja Marjanovic | Subeditor: Ivelina Nikolova Say hello to the PERi-Berry Burger; a match made in heaven for all of us who have a hard time deciding whether to get boneless chicken thighs or chicken breast fillets every single time we go to Nando’s (Every. Single. Time.) This new burger combines both of the mentioned classics (yes, that is right, you can have both in one bite).
