* Service: 3.5

As the stall is in a market and surrounded by other food stalls, crowdedness is inevitable and tolerable. The vendor has a good line up system that’s clearly communicated, easily understandable, and doesn’t block neighbouring stalls. Service was quick and thus prevents the line from being too overwhelming. That being said, staff need to be careful not to sacrifice too much friendliness towards customers solely for quicker service.

Additionally, the stall serves everything on a rectangular styrofoam bowl. Whilst I understand that this is convenient, it would be great if a more environmentally friendly material can be used or maybe the vendor can offer a fair discount to customers who bring along their own reusable containers.

* Venue / ambiance: 4

Located relatively at the centre of the food hub, as far as market stalls go it’s pretty decent and accessible. The surrounding intersections amplify the rush and hecticness at times, but having two stalls merged into one certainly helps establish a less suffocating atmosphere for customers. Due to its central location, there are no seats or tables nearby.

* X factor: None

Can’t put my finger on any, great British food with great flavours, but nothing that makes me scream, “Wow!”

* Overall experience: 3.5

* Roast Beef w/ Potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding & Gravy for £6 : 4

Overall, the dish was mildly seasoned and well presented. The beef was cooked well done and the Yorkshire pudding was tasty. For improvements, larger potatoes should’ve been cut into smaller pieces for a better and more uniformed roast across the potatoes. One or two extra Yorkshire pudding(s) and more caramelised onions would’ve made the price for portion more ideal. Additionally, I reckon some roasted or boiled vegetables can complement the dish rather nicely.
