Rotunda

Location: North London (Kings Cross)

Cuisine: Modern European

Price Range: ££

LFM Score: 4/5

Bebe Friendly Score: 3/3

With time to kill whilst waiting for the Eurostar around Kings Cross, what better place to go for a Sunday roast than Rotunda. Set overlooking Regent’s canal, the nautical themed decor blends in well. The surrounding full glass windows make the venue feel bright and airy. Rotunda is a really smart venue (with reports that David Milliband celebrated his 50th birthday here), however they cater for the little ones really well with a special kids menu, colouring books and high chairs. Lots of families were here to enjoy a family roast, which was excellently executed  (so often in London, you pay up to £20 for a lack lustre roast).  Priced at around £16, I would say it was well worth it, just for the yorkshire puddings alone. The venue is spacious and kids will have plenty to look at with the passing barges outside on the canal.

Stacks Poutine

Location: North London (Stoke Newington)

Cuisine: American (Actually Canadian but it’s practically the same right?!)

Price Range: £

LFM Score: 4/5

Bebe Friendly Score: 1/3

What have the Canadians offered to the culinary scene? Not much as far as our knowledge goes but finally we have discovered: Poutine! (Not to be confused with that Russian gentleman). A dish made of chips, cheese curds and gravy. OK not ideal food to help with that post-baby diet regime but sometimes life is too short. Stacks have devised an entire menu based on poutine with an international twist, for example, Kimchi ‘Korean’ poutine. We were impressed and certainly didn’t leave hungry.

Currently Stacks is resident at ‘Birthday bar’ so we don’t advise taking baby on Friday night! Sunday lunchtime was quiet and baby was welcomed but don’t expect any facilities.

In a dodgy part of Norf London, in a dodgy carpark behind some lacklustre office buildings, in a make shift shed… lies BURGER HEAVEN. We’ve eaten a lot of burgers in our quest and this, dare we say is THE best in London? Not really a place to take the mother-in-law or a baby frankly, but sometimes you just got to roll with it.
