I have a confession to make: I am late to most culinary trends and “best kept secrets”.
I had never been to the Gay Hussar, the restaurant that used to be in these premises. I actually barely knew anything about it, its fame (used to be frequented by politicians on their old-school long lunches) or the type of cuisine it cooked (Hungarian), until it was threatened with closure.
And then it was finally closed and boarded up, and I never had the chance to visit, and then it spent quite a bit of time shut, and I would cycle past it and never give it a second thought (there’s only so much you can be saddened with before everything drags you down).
Then a couple of weeks ago Devvers said we should visit the restaurant as it had just opened.
This restaurant opened recently and we decided to try it out because we have had very little exposure to African food and are quite curious about it (perhaps the most we’ve tried is North African food i.e. Moroccan, Egyptian…). But also, it is in our neighbourhood and we would like it to not become a Ghost Town again, so here we are, keen to support local businesses!
