Loved the Pan Asian food at E and O in Notting Hill, London

E & O (for Eastern & Oriental) in Notting Hill is part of Ricker Restaurants (by Will Ricker) serving Pan-Asian food.  It was buzzing with people when we went late on a weekday evening and we thought the buzz was by virtue of it’s location (just off Portobello Road), and soon found out that it was because of the delicious food served at E & O.

The dishes we liked the best are the quinoa, pomegranate and edamame salad, the chilli salt squid, the prawn and chive dumpling, the black cod and prawn shumai and the chicken green curry – all are must order dishes at the restaurant.   The pictures in this post do not do enough justice to the delicious food at E & O.  I promise to get better pictures the next time I go there and I hope to be there soon!

The quinoa,pomegranate and edamame salad exceeded expectations – I expected the ingredients to be brought together in a bowl with little else.  There was a  dressing that was so subtle, but distinct and brought together the quinoa, pomegranate, and edamame so well, that this certainly counts as one of the best salads I have had recently!  Please do try this and let me know if you figure out what dressing is used.

The chilli salt squid was an excellent dish – the squid was dipped in batter and fried to a nice crisp finish!!  We ate this up before I realized that I have no picture to share!

The prawn and chive dumpling just as pretty as it was delicious – the prawn was sweet and the chive added a subtle fresh flavor.  I have never seen a dumpling that looked prettier!

The black cod and prawn shumai with pepper miso was delicious because of the cod and the prawn, but the pepper miso was lost on us.    Should we give this another try?

The chicken green curry was full of flavor and topped with crispy, caramelised onions and some chilies – was perfect with the egg-fried jasmine rice.

Now for the not-so-great dish of the evening. 

The vegetable yuba roll with chilli jam sounds better than it tasted.  The chilli jam was neither spicy not sweet enough to make an impact on us.  This dish simply paled in comparison to all other dishes at E & O.

I now regret not buying the E & O cookbook then, but then, there is always a book store or Amazon (cheaper, perhaps just for the paperback version?).  We will be back to E & O for dumplings, their specials and their unique desserts!
