“Unusual dishes” using bold flavours from a diverse set of cuisines again wins fans for this dinky diner – a spin-off of Three Birds and Apiary; flexibly served wines are appreciated too: in 500ml or 1l carafes as well as the usual options.

Three Birds’ and Apiary’s popular baby sister is a self-proclaimed ‘dinky’ spot. On the menu, “such a different variety of global foods (Scandi, Middle Eastern etc.) that change each season, and are locally sourced” (and often pickled, smoked or of a ‘nose-to-tail’ bent).

The “friendly and reasonably priced” new sibling to Three Birds and Apiary is a dinky spot (with a self-proclaimed “wee” wine list to match); pickling, smoking and preserving is all done in-house, and the menu picks and mixes from all over the place – South Africa, Scandinavia, the Middle East – to “interesting” effect.

"Chicken supreme, wilted Chinese leaves, ginger, chili, mango & coconut rice, teriyaki gravy, toasted sesame seeds, coriander was delicious. Tastiest rice ever. Nothing plush about The Educated Flea. Its a neighbourhood restaurant which serves consistently good food. Need to book - full even on a Monday evening in October."
