OK, this little deli has just stolen my heart. I never thought that shepherds pie could be sexy, but oh my goodness that's the best meal I've had in a while. There's a photo if you want to see the brilliance.
I don't often find myself in Blackheath. It's pricey, it's posh and a longish walk from home. Greenwich is much more convenient for me. But sometimes, I'm tired and jump in a cab home from Blackheath station (a habit I really should get out of). Tonight I did just that. But I was starving. And the Village Deli was open and perfect.
Back to that pie. Oh my goodness the pie. Wonderful wonderful mashed potato, which perfectly crisped under the grill (can you tell I haven't been eating carbs much recently?) Yummy meat and veggies - even a stray broadbean to make me feel especially wholesome. It's one of the best shepherds pies I've EVER eaten.
And it was only £3.25.
I might move in. Instead, because I had to spend over £6 to use my card (my only gripe and I've already forgiven them), i bought to scotch eggs for my lunch tomorrow. If I wasn't too full of pie, I'd have eaten them too.
The rest of the place? Seating area for eating in (the do cakes, tea, coffee etc) and I'm assuming they'd warm any of the goodies on display. Staff were friendly. And they're open until 9.
I'm in serious lust with Village Deli.
