Mex Grocer, and I think Dad would agree is his favourite online store. If you open our larder, the Mexican side pretty much comes from Mex Grocer. They sell specialist authentic Mexican food and products, and pride themselves in customer service. If there’s a parcel addressed to Dad… it’s normally from Mex Grocer!
You can check out Dad’s Mexican inspired recipes here or our Authentic Guacamole presented in a molcajete from Mex Grocer.
Jarvis fishmongers have been going since 1942. Located just outside Kingston Upon Thames in South-west London they run a fishmongers with an adjacent restaurant. They have impeccable quality, a great range and even smoke their own salmon.
Don’t be afraid of cooking fish, their staff have years of experience so can (and will) offer advice.
The fish! group can also be found in Borough Market where they offer excellent takeaway fish & chips or a sit down meal in their glass walled restaurant amongst the bustling market stalls.
The halibut in this recipe came from Jarvis and was excellent. You can also click here if you need more seafood cooking inspiration from WDC.
Lina Stores is an Italian delicatessen on the corner of Brewer St. in the heart of Soho, London. Dad has been a regular since the 1980’s when he held a job around the corner.
We still love to peek in here to see what authentic imported Italian products they have to offer. We ogle at their beautiful selection of meats, cheeses and antipasti which usually finds its way into our amazing lunchtime sandwiches.
If you’re in Soho, pay this stunningly arranged store a visit. You’ll be whisked away to Italy in know time.
