In the run-up to the terrible incident itself, the cheese is ramped up to Stinking Bishop levels. And then, suddenly, it’s out with the old and in with the new. Ramsay Street will never be the same again – although that grim prognosis might not apply to the cockroach-like Paul Robinson, who lurks around the fringes, as sneaky and implacable as ever. Aussie TV at its absolute best…
Voodoo Ray's Camden
Voodoo Ray’s first made a name for itself by serving seriously delicious pizza by the slice to drunk Dalston revellers. The hours are more early-morning than late-night, the slices are gigantic and the menu reads like an arty acid trip – think Rubenesque, The Full Moon Slice and Shrooms!. Which is why this new Camden Market branch feels like it’s landed in the perfect location, an area slowly regaining hip currency. A bit disappointing then, that on a midweek visit closing time was 8pm and, with 45 minutes to go, they’d pretty much run out of slices. Luckily, the staff are so lovely they offered to stay open late and make a 22-inch pizza from scratch. It was split into three different flavours, and the best by miles was King Tubby, an inventive mix of fennel-infused sausage, crispy kale and sweet, caramelised onion. Less good was Green Velvet, laden with lovely squishy artichoke hearts but a bit too heavy on the mozzarella. The base, too, could have been crisper. But maybe I just wasn’t drunk enough. Given that, my tip would be to get on the sauce and go on the weekend, when Ray’s stays open till midnight.
