An Organic Sunday Roast at The Duke of Cambridge, Islington

I live up to my British heritage when I say unwaveringly that I LOVE a roast dinner. One of those spilling-over-the-plate, all-the-trimmings affairs, with a healthy mix of bad-for-you beige and wonderfully colourful veggies. The Duke of Cambridge is tucked…

A Lebanese Lunch at Plenty, London

It is extremely rare that I will ever take a full lunch break at work. Generally I’ll take 15 minutes to go and find/heat up some food, take it back to my desk and keep on typing away; it’s ridiculous,…

The Faulty Towers Theatrical Dining Experience

I’ve written before about the importance of British comedy in my life and Fawlty Towers has always been one of my favourite TV shows. So imagine my surprise when, sat making bath bombs at a Joe Blogs event, I see…

Udon Noodles at Koya, Soho

I’ve made a mistake. Koya has been on my ‘to-eat’ list for months but it’s only when I found out that it was closing on 31st May that I finally got around to actually paying a visit. A few weeks…

An Evening on the Naughty Ghost Walking Tour

I’ve proclaimed on this here blog many times that the best way to see somewhere is on foot, and that includes my own fair city of London. The Naughty Ghost Tour is half scary, half comical and focuses on the…
