90 Degree melt, 235 Mile End Road, E1. near The Half Moon Pub.

A new American veggie/vegan fast food place that deals mainly with toasted Sandwiches. I had two for £6.99 which were decent and filled me up. I had the The vegan version of The Spa-artichoke - Spinach & Artichoke, with creamy cheddar and sharp Parmesan, with tangy chilli sauce and the The Harissa - Flavors of North Africa. Courgettes, tomatoes & spinach with a flavourful Harissa paste. Very unusual and very tasty. Coffee was a ripp off though - way to dear for what it was.

Quick service, very friendly staff and spotlessly clean - this was also confirmed by it's 5/5 star cleanliness certificate.

It also does veg/vegan versions of corn dogs, chilli dogs, hot dogs etc - and I'll be back to give them a go.

No offence mate, but to pay 7quid for a toasted sandwich, you'd have to be more like a 360 degree melt.

NPs Tenners - if I paid £7 for a toasted sandwich, you'd be completely right to call me a melt!

All in Porto Montenegro over the last week (If ever a place was the epitome of "I saw you coming" - this is it.)

Murano at The Regent - 2/10 - because the waitresses are real lookers, 0/10 otherwise ; food was bloody awful. Ambience "Gawped at like a monkey in a cage" on "The Terrace" ( known in England as the pavement).

Samuson, - 3/10 - food was nice (once the exploratory expedition actually found it on the largely vacant plate - ended up going straight for a very nice, big, €7 Pizza afterwards). Level of piss-takery was humungous - 2xAsahi (small bottles) = €14 (they seemed surprised to find we'd heard of it - I didn't have the heart to tell them that Morrisons sell it - well, Mrs Bubbs, told me not to embarrass her by making a scene at their banditry).

One, - 7/10 - nice 'Med' food, nice setting, generous portions, service okay

Byblos, - 6/10 - unremarkable Lebanese but okay.

Bevenda, - 9/10 - who'd have thought a €5 Bruschetta starter would taste as though it was worth £30? Very nice food, nice bayfront setting, decent service.
