The critic-in-chief gives his opinion on Le Canut es les Gones – a place that takes its hearty, working class meals very seriously.
Babaji, a Turkish pizzeria on London’s perrennially tourist-filled Shaftesbury Avenue, serves up a mixed feast – the Topkapi chicken gets a thumbs up but other dishes are “oddly forgettable”.
