    I see Chips, Burgers, Chinese, Thai, Pasties, Turkish, as well as 'the Usual'.

    But, for me, if there is one thing that is guaranteed to get me heading into the restaurant, it is Wagamamas ....
    Ooh, it is ansom ....
    Have a look at the fare on offer.

    So, whatever it is, tell us what this area is missing in the food line up.
    It is not that I am looking for a foreign land to invade Cornwall, they already have...

    I also enjoy Lebanese ... nearest place is in Bath, and I just lerv it.

    Anything that you would like to add or change in Penwith?
    What do you miss, would like here?

    I also miss being able to walk in off the street and to get a Bagel, smoked salmon and cream cheese, with a juicy filling of peppered cucumber and tomato .... mmmmmm

    Or, are they here now, and I am missing out ?????

    this time of the morning, and now I AM feeling hungry !!!!!

    Last night we were treated to one of the best meals I have ever had the pleasure to sit down to. I know 'Thai Moon' has been talked about on site previously but it deserves another mention. We shared several small dishes including appetisers culminating with a green beef curry and a red duck curry. These were served with both jasmine and fried rice. The different flavours and hits of subtle seasoning of herbs and spices were sublime. The atmosphere was friendly and ambient, the service excellent. Highly recommended.

    I have just discovered the book Wagamama, by Hugo Arnold. So that answers my needs.

    @CW everyone's going on about Thai moon is it really that good and exactly how expensive is it?
    @treeve nearest branch of Wagamama is Exeter... bit of a walk that.

    @HH, The Thai Moon is a little dearer than the other Thai restaurant in town, however, I consider the food superior as the service. For those who are unsure I strongly recommend sampling a set meal (£18 pp) This includes starters, three main courses with both Jasmine and Egg fried rice.

    Well I suppose that makes sense and sounds like quite a meal in any case.
    I'll give it a go and report back

    Another Place a bit off the beaten track and actually highly individual is Food for Thought, a specialised Vegetarian Restaurant off Covent Garden. Their speciality a few years back was various African and Moroccan menus. I had no idea just how many ways a plantain could be cooked. Sweet potatoes as well. Of course many meals were Indian. I do miss a good vegetarian meal - There is more to a vegetarian meal than a nut roast.

    I've always wondered why Penzance has never had a restaurant catering for the above. I absolutely know it would be a great success.

    Here is a favourite ... Sweet potatoes in a Cayenne, ginger and groundnut sauce. Another - Aubergine in Date Sauce.

    Having just cooked a roast in my predicament I am very pleased and even more so I would have been delighted with it if it had been served up in a restaurant .. topped over with a pepper and orange glaze that I had made using chicken stock, orange zest with brown sugar, cornflour and black ground pepper. I may even cook the chicken in a sauce of that another time. Real Food!

    Went down to the Pirate Inn in Alverton (for my 70th) - surprised to see a Barm Brack for sale, so I immersed myself into purchasing mode. I await my taste buds response.
