Apologies again for the gap between posts, November has been a month of birthday celebrations and finding time to sit down to write has been difficult. But on this cold, grey day I feel like it would be nice to write about somewhere which makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. On one of the… Continue reading Bob Bob Ricard
I think by now you’ve worked out that I am a fan of tapas. :: See my reviews of Ember Yard, Opera Tavern and from Ibiza. There are dozens of places to eat small plates of Mediterranean food in London and the standard definitely varies. I had heard good things about the branches of Camino in London… Continue reading A lot of tapas at Camino in Kings Cross
The first thing I need to do with this post is to apologise. I’m sorry I’ve been off radar for so long. It turns out moving house and sorting all of the associated minutiae is pretty time consuming. Bur we are now very happy Tooting residents so watch this space for more ramblings about newly… Continue reading Get A Pizza The Action At The Stable in Bridport

On Friday we decided try a place no one we knew had heard of, in an area we don’t really know at all. Merton Abbey Mills is on the site of one of the most important monasteries of… Continue reading No bum notes at Rock Star Sushi Bar
Last week I read that we eat twice as many calories at a BBQ than we do for a normal meal. Scary, but understandable given how tempting everything always is and it would be rude not to have a sausage, burger and chicken leg wouldn’t it?! With that in mind, last weekend when we had… Continue reading Proper spicy sausage pasta!
Last week Matt and I went to Gilgamesh in Camden for the first time. We had been tempted by an offer I saw online for an opportunity to try out two courses from their new a la carte menu for £14. Knowing that the restaurant was not cheap we thought this seemed like a great… Continue reading GilgaMESS – but I have high hopes for next time
We spent the Bank Holiday weekend in Dorset which is one of our favourite places in the world and where we got married last year.
