patatas bravas with grill prawns from Carbon

Carbon is a charcoal grill restaurant in the heart of Soho, serving up international dishes of grilled meat, chicken, fish and vegetables.

Marble tiles line the outside wall and inside, cartons of fresh vegetables are spread under the counter for you to oggle. Despite being served in a takeaway box, my food smelled so good I sat down and ate it right outside.

The bravas sauce covering the diced potatoes spoke volumes, screaming flavours of oregano and paprika. Even the dressing had real gusto - tart lemon and sharp, stinging garlic, all covered with a sprinkling of parsley.

I'll be returning soon, probably for their charcoal-grilled sweet potato.
