The Last Supper

After a week in Marbs we had one night left in London before moving home for summer.

Obviously I couldn't be bothered to cook.

Luckily I wasn't the only one so a few of us headed down the road to Sen Viet for dinner.

Now I have to admit, this place doesn't look like much from the outside.

It's a kind of shabby little Vietnamese joint a couple of minutes from Kings Cross. 

However, it's whats on the inside that counts- and the food is seriously good. 

We got down to business and decided to choose a dish each and a couple of starters and share the lot.

As far as I'm concerned this is the best way to order as I'm a piglet at heart and always want to try everything.

To get the ball rolling we started with salt and pepper chicken wings.

A huge plate of spicy stir fried veg and succulent, crispy chicken.

Alongside some crispy vegetable spring rolls with lashings of spicy soy sauce.

Then came the mains.

I have to admit that I have no idea what these dishes were actually called (the online menu isn't the same as the restaurant menu) but I'll just do my best to describe them instead.

Jack's choice: stir fried beef with sweet chilli and crunchy noodle things.

...which vanished rapidly.

Marinated chicken with noodles, peanuts and vegetables.

Coconut chicken curry with carrot and potato.

Sizzling prawns, squid and scallops with stir fried veg.

We each piled our mini bowls and plates high with a bit of everything. 

It was a lot of food but somehow we managed to get through it all...

...and leave a little room for pudding, which came in the form of a giant ball of deep fried ice cream, drizzled in condensed milk and sprinkled with nuts.

Yes, deep fried ice cream. 

Don't knock it til you've tried it- it's delicious.

We finished the meal with a round of vietnamese iced coffees. 

These were like super sweet coffee milkshakes as they were made with condensed milk.

I've had a bit of a thing for iced lattes recently, and this was up there with the best.

After a flash of our student ID's, we managed to get 10% student discount so the whole meal came to £60. 

For all of that food and multiple drinks each, this was seriously good value.

If you're ever looking for somewhere to eat before catching a train from Kings Cross, give this place a go (trust me, besides here and Honest Burger there isn't much going on). 

Or, if you live in the area, order some food for delivery.
