REVIEW: Prawn on the Lawn

REVIEW: Prawn on the Lawn

It occurred to me recently that I have never stated prices or budgets for restaurants that I’ve written about.  This is not an intentional disservice to the reader, I simply think it is a little tawdry to overcast the splendidness of a meal with a quotation.  Much like when I go to meals en masse...
REVIEW: A continued French love affair at Brawn

REVIEW: A continued French love affair at Brawn

Hopefully the title does not mislead you into thinking I am about to embark on a story of salacious trysts from within this Columbia Road restaurant.  How crass that would be.  I simply mention my love affair français as it is an integral part of my culinary preferences, although I rarely get to indulge it due to...
Baltic Offerings to revisit this Winter

Baltic Offerings to revisit this Winter

It occurred to me whilst perusing recent restaurant articles that there is a lot of information available to the reviewer (and reader) based on NEW openings and NEW places to “be” at.  I share the enthusiasm that abounds from the mere mention of a new eatery and there is an enormous amount of reassurance gained...
Hanoi cuisine to make your smile wider at Banh Mi11

Hanoi cuisine to make your smile wider at Banh Mi11

If there are support groups out there for Vietnamese food addiction then I am an unregistered member.  I adore the stuff.  Fresh summer rolls of vegetables, meat or fish rolled up in an envelope of rice paper; soothing, hot Pho that cures all ailments with slurp-up-sharp noodles or crunchy baguettes piled with slow roasted meats,...
Blowing the trumpet for the Green Man and French Horn

Blowing the trumpet for the Green Man and French Horn

Over 6000 restaurants exist in the Capital.  Not particularly surprising for me when I read this in (yet another) harshly written review however the specified figure made my mind spin in terms of how does one possibly have the time to explore so much uncharted culinary territory?  Location is a huge obstacle in this feat however the...
The Spanish come to Shoreditch

The Spanish come to Shoreditch

I love it when a new restaurant opens.  Let me rephrase; I love it when a new restaurant is conceived.  Much like the population growth, restaurants are following suit and the gestation period is becoming ever shorter in order to meet the demand of high competition in the culinary stakes. When SAF closed its doors...
Eastern Promise

Eastern Promise

I believe there comes a time in one’s life (in my case quite frequently it would seem) that change is necessary and good in order to stimulate the mind and body. This thought process is what prompted me to “up sticks” and move to North East London recently and the wonderful pastures new of Stoke...
Feed your ears, eyes and mouth at Trangallan

Feed your ears, eyes and mouth at Trangallan

A long overdue reunion of friends was happily met with sunny skies one Wednesday afternoon in London.  Damon & Michelle, two Texans I had the pleasure to make the acquaintance with back in Austin, had arrived in London in upbeat tempo.  Regardless of over 30 hours lack of sleep (attributed to the excitement and unfortunate...
Bring a good appetite to Budapest

Bring a good appetite to Budapest

I have been lucky enough to have enjoyed various home cooked Hungarian fodder in my lifetime; Pörkölt a delicious chicken ‘stew’ of sorts & an excellent cure for a poorly head; Leves (this just means ‘soup’ in Hungarian) in various guises as there be meat ones, bean ones, creamy ones etc etc… and the sweet tooth is...
