Caravan is placed in Exmouth Square: my favorite location for a quirky, but decadent dining experience. Like it’s neighboring restaurants; Caravan’s menu is experimental with major influences from Eastern European cooking. The interiors were warmly dark and lit with candles on small tables surrounded by big windows that looked onto the street. It was packed with a range of quite sophisticated mid twenties to forties clients. A very charming and attractive waitress seated us. First we ordered the wine, which was delicious, sweet, but not overpoweringly. Then we ordered some corn bread and this had more of a cake constancy. The bread complimented the very earthy and beautifully cooked red peppers with yoghurt. It is far more interesting to order the small plates because this meant you could try an array of food and six was perfect between the two of us. Along with the peppers, we had green salted peppers and some garnished beetroots. Our preferred dish was probably the roasted sweet potatoes! The pudding was unfortunately a let down compared to the rest of the dishes, but all in all, definitely worth the pennies.
