Those lucky enough to nab a seat at St Kevin’s Arcade’s Pici will have surely tried its famed Cacio e Pepe. Showcasing the power of simple food done perfectly, this cheesy, peppery, handmade pasta was the most voted for in this year’s Best Dish category. That’s not to say, however, that Gochu’s famed Milk Bun, Hello Beasty’s flavourful Potsticker Dumplings, Azabu’s delicate Artichoke Dumplings, Andiamo’s indulgent Macaroni or Lilian’s falling-off-the-bone Lamb Ribs are to be dismissed. If you haven’t tried these popular dishes, you’re seriously missing out.
