Hop & SpiceWhen the going gets tough, the tough need to chill out with a cold beer and a delicious curry. Hop and Spice in Balham, London, is the perfect place to share superb Sri Lankan cuisine with friends and family, and the curry-house-come-disco interior with golden Buddha statues and kooky lamps is a fun place to forget all about the hustle and bustle of big city living. Restaurateur Bahi Sivalingam has devised a clever sharing-style Thali menu alongside classic curries like the Kerralan chicken simmered with roasted spices, coconut cream and fresh coriander. Hop and Spice has a brilliant beer menu, and we love the Kandy Mess - a traditional Eton Mess with a passion fruit and mango twist.
