Towards the end of Bermondsey St at no. 214 is @anticolondon and @214bermondsey. If u haven't been, @anticolondon does proper Italian food, lovingly made and very tasty. Starters were fresh and just the right size, light. Mains were also well proportioned and full of flavour. Gelato is the smoothest I've ever had and packs a punch in taste too. In the basement is its little sister @214bermondsey which is an underground gin bar that really provides new meaning to drinking and really tasting gin. Highly recommended! For the veggies out there, couple of starter options, 1 pasta on the menu also veggie friendly, and another as a daily special.
