Experts are consulted and self-conscious members of the public asked for their best this’ll-slay-em material, but the end result is fairly predictable: what we find funny is incredibly culturally and historically specific, so we might have trouble even spotting the comedy gold of the past.
Obicà Mozzarella Bar South Kensington
This spacious spot on Draycott Avenue is the original branch of what now constitute five Obicà venues in London. As with all the Obicà venues, both in the UK and abroad, the focus here is on buffalo mozzarellas, though other Italian produce and dishes also feature. The mozzarella is all sourced from its traditional home of Campana, and comes with Protected Designation of Origin status. It's available on its own but also on a menu ranging from salumi boards, bruschetta, roasted marinated artichokes and Sicilian aubergine casserole to tuna fillets, Cetara anchovies with sun-dried tomatoes, pizzas, pasta dishes and secondis of sea bass, aubergine parmigiana and rib-eye tagliata.
Venue says: “Pasta, salad or pizza and a selection of Obicà specialities. All the flavours of our cuisine in one dish, at £12! Monday to Friday noon-3pm.”
