Review on Champor Champor

Champor-Champor is a Malay expression that roughly translates as 'mix-and-match' and at first glance that's exactly what this wacky, London Bridge restaurant looks like. The whole place is a riot of bohemian and ethnic curios, artefacts and oddities, ranging from a bizarre scarlet cow to a reclining Buddha. Each table is styled differently and dishes arrive immaculately composed on ceramic and wooden plates.

As you might expect, the menu is as striking as the décor, fusing traditional Malay village cooking with influences from Thailand, Sri Lanka and beyond. You might need a South-East Asian encyclopaedia to translate some of the components, most of the titles are pretty clear – and staff are happy to de-code and explain.

Crispy duck and cucumber salad with Nonya fresh chilli vinaigrette and kedundung chutney is a typical starter, alongside sardine curry puffs with lime yoghurt and tom yum braised fennel. Next comes a Western-style 'inter-course' of, say, green apple and lemon grass granita before main courses ranging from baked catfish with pineapple pajeri, watercress fried rice and calamansi pudding or roast lamb cutlets with crushed sweet basil, garlic and Szechuan peppercorns, red curry and sweet potato getuk. Alternatively, go for one of the traditional composite dishes like nasi lemak. To finish, refresh your tastebuds with an 'icy threesome' (smoked banana, rambutan and chilli, and chocolate and cardamom ice creams).
