(Cover) - EN Star Style - Drew Barrymore has a penchant for good Indian food and most every visit to the United Kingdom includes dining on a curry dish at Dishoom.

The 40-year-old actress made a surprise appearance on Saturday 19 September (15) at the Sunglass Hut party, which was hosted by the brand’s supermodel ambassador Georgia May Jagger.

And while trying on numerous pairs of shades at the event, which marks the first year Sunglass Hut serves as an official sponsor for London Fashion Week, Drew revealed to WWD she is committed to eating at chain eatery Dishoom whenever she is in the British Isles.

“[Dishoom] is one of my favourite restaurants in the world,” she gushed.

Dishoom is a British version of the Irani café, a cafeteria style brought to India in the 19th century by Persian immigrants. Samosas, tikka, naan, tea, biryanis and other traditional dishes with a Persian twist are normally served at Irani cafés.

Drew was only in the UK for a brief period, but a limited amount of time did not stop the star from dining out at her most treasured eateries or taking in the excitement of London Fashion Week.

“I really wanted to be here, so I made it happen…I have to be on a plane in a few hours, so this will be my London Fashion Week moment,” she smiled. “What’s not to love? The style, the food, it’s all incredible.”

Drew has recently panned her personal style, especially when it comes to choosing remarkable garments for high-profile events.

The star also thinks the controversy over women getting asked questions on the red carpet about what they’re wearing is absurd.

“It is what it is,” she told UK newspaper The Mirror. “Why does anybody bother getting mad? It’s just silly – it’s a red carpet, it’s a parade, it’s about fashion. And the reason men don’t get asked what they’re wearing is because, unless you’re Johnny Depp, it’s all very similar: suits or bow ties.

“I mean, I am fashion roadkill sometimes but if you’re like, ‘Urrrgh, I don’t wanna be treated like this or asked who I’m wearing’, then don’t go on the red carpet. It’s easy! Sorry, I’m getting really mad now, but it’s true.”
