    About Time for a Chinese

In the jungle the Leon sleeps tonight!

Recently I was looking for a quick bite in Blackfriars and realised I have never eaten in Leon. 11 restaurants 10 of them in London. Hectic, fast, noisy, as would you expect in the City during lunch rush hour. Their offer food that taste good and do good, using seasonal fresh ingredients from farms they trust. 

Got to the place with a colleague, at the end I ordered Moroccan meatballs and a grilled chicken salad. The meatballs were beef and lamb, a little dry, plum tomato sauce pretty decent, herbs, and a garlic sauce which gave a nice touch, rice as a side good enough, overall ok. The chicken salad a little disappointing, greens including spinach, peas, quinoa, some tomatoes, add to that the aioli sauce which was scarce, some pieces of grilled chicken, it was again just ok. 

Fast food, not my style, but if you’re in a rush, and want some wrap it might work for you I will probably pass. 

Lunch time completely packed
Meatballs remind me the Seinfeld episode “The Little Jerry” 

Elaine: Kurt? What's with the sweats? Aren't we going out?
Kurt: I don't care
Elaine: You, uh, got a big stain on your shirt
Kurt: Oh yeah, meatball, fell out of my sandwich
Elaine: You already ate?
Kurt: It's from yesterday
