This week I clambered up to the lofty heights of Galvin at Windows (28th floor of the Hilton Park Lane) to see whether Hayler’s law that “food gets worse as you get higher” still holds. See the London section review to find out (one dish is pictured). Other than that I had another excellent meal at Yauatcha, which serves superb dim sum all day. You don’t get to linger, but this is good value and as high quality dim sum as you will get in London: try the gorgeous salt and pepper quail or the baked venison puff. I also stumbled into my local La Trompette, and had a better than usual meal here on an outside table on a lovely summer’s evening; the wine list here is so good, and fairly priced, that I always end up over-indulging here and struggle with my notes at the end of evening. Trompette is still easily the best restaurant in Chiswick, and indeed for some distance around.
