The portal to this divinely eclectic culinary experience is down an unassuming side street near London Bridge Station.
Champor-Champor is Malay for "mix and match", a perfect description of the food and atmosphere. The cuisine is Thai-Malay fusion. The decor a fabulous candle-lit, jewel-box jumble of color, wall-mounted Buddhas and tribal artifacts.
The soft-shell crab starter is divine. The beef rendang a favorite. If you're in the mood for romance, book the private little nook above the dining area. Make sure to call ahead for reservations. Walk-ins usually walk away hungry.
