At Krapow, a Thai-inspired restaurant midway between Lower Clapton and Homerton, they make something called nam price ong. It’s essentially saucy pork mince in a bowl, with touches of chilli and tomato, served alongside big slices of cucumber and pork scratchings. Yes, pork scratchings. We aren’t sure if it’s quite as spicy as we thought it would be, but we are sure about one thing: it’s bloody delicious. And that’s pretty much what Krapow is going for. The menu is made for sharing - curries, papaya salads, and variations on fried chicken. Not everything will blow you away, but nor will anything disappoint. And combined with the cosily intimate space, it makes for a neighbourhood restaurant anyone would want close by.
Krapow is permanently closed.
