El's Kitchen - Coming Soon to Ladywell

Ladywell Village Improvement Group member Eleanor Thompson is planning to open a food shop in Ladywell - El's Kitchen - and she's started a Facebook group to canvass local opinion about what sort of produce and services she should offer.

She's still in the planning stages but it's great to see more optimism from local entrepreneurs. Click here to join the group and tell her what you want to see in Ladywell.

It's a deli, and someone is already on the group asking for organic beans.

Writes itself, this stuff!

More good news for Ladywell. Nice bread would be high on my list.

They do good bread in Oscars and the bakery has not only a tolerable range of breads but a first class croissant!

however, paying £2.80 for a loaf of bread (in oskars) is, for me, far too expensive.

This is great news.
Which of the many empty premises in Ladywell will it occupy?

I'd like some good, fresh fruit and veg (the stuff outside Ladywell Food & Wine always looks a bit manky) and a nice selection of cheeses please.

Could It be the fruit etc looks a bit manky because nobody's buying It

M said...

Maybe but it already looked pretty bad when I saw it being delivered the other day.

I agree with the poster above. I've only been in the once but found it OK - a down-to-earth local boozer.

"I'd like some good, fresh fruit and veg"

There used to be the Turkish grocer there selling exactly that...

Great shop name though - locate it "westside" and it would be even more apt!

For a bit of comic relief (and as a diversion to the possible litany of tired, pro/anti wholefood posts), who knows of some more wittily entitled businesses? We had Crofton Pork yesterday. Any more?

Thanks for all your opinions, Spamantha

Yes. I'm not sure I would get Samantha to monitor my apartment, given that she can't even spell either word.

Oh, denizens of Ladywell, I decree that there shall open a Pancake Shoppe, the greatest Pancake Shoppe in existence, and emblazoned above the apex of this Pancake Shoppe shall be a sign, a sign from God that proclaimeth the stupidest name under the sunne.

YES OR YES shall be that name, and when the goodly people of Ladywell are asked whether or not they would be so good as to partake of the pancake, they will be given three options.

The first is death.

The Lord supposes, however, that you, humble reader, may be able to guesseth at the other two...

It is a strange name. Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue either.

How are the pancakes?

I've always liked the dry cleaners in Turnham Green called...


Turn'em Clean!

tyrwitt michael - Curl up and dye is certainly still there - and under the same name. I had one or two mildly disastrous haircuts there as a teenager.

Tyrwhitt Michael said...

Hence the need for a fabhat?

There's something about hair-dressing that unleashes the closet punster. Samples abound - just look through the classified directories.

There used to be a shop on one of the estates in Bermondsey that you could see on the train going into London Bridge called "Spend More Please". Not sure if it's still there or if it's now been demolished.

What I miss most is a decent butcher's. Saying that items like sausages, pies, vegetables,and other delicacies would be good too. Budgens in Crofton Park seem to have a good selection of items.

oryx said...

There is a good butcher on Ewhurst Road in Crofton Park (Peter James).
