Two sets of friends recommended Ashers in Wembley for their theplas. Theplas are thin Gujarati flatbreads made with wheat flour, fenugreek and spices. So after one aborted attempt at getting ourselves there and a day of whining that followed, we jumped into the car impulsively one Saturday evening when we got bored of lounging on the couch, and drove to Ashers Africana restaurant.

Eating out in London
For 3 and a half years we lived really close to Hammersmith and I took a bus home from work everyday, and visited plenty of restaurants down King Street. Remember Sagar? And Tuga? And Noodles & Magic? I never noticed Shilpa, and in retrospect, it baffles me how I missed it. I've been to Shilpa Hammersmith thrice in the last year and three months, and each time I have adored it.
Smack in the heart of Shepherd's Bush Market, opposite the Shepherd's Bush Market tube station, there is a no-frills little restaurant with a few tables and chairs scattered around, and this unassuming place makes stupendous falafel wraps. Mr Falafel, in my opinion, is London's most underrated, understated, most delicious falafel joint.
