Angler

Angler is a discreet, lovely restaurant above the fabulous South Place Hotel, near London’s Liverpool Street station in the heart of the city. Having spent much time in the bar downstairs, I finally got to try the michelin starred delight twice in a month! Both times taking some very special people (you know who you are!). I was delighted to… Read more →

INK

INK restaurant in the up and coming Bethnal Green area, is going places. From the beginning when I booked, I was not sold… I found the restaurant as a very good Groupon deal, and the food looked too pretty to ignore, but I had my doubts. Especially when I had some booking problems, my pessimistic side was preparing me for… Read more →

California Road Trip!

I have been to California numerous times in my life, as my sister moved there when I was young. So I grew up visiting great spots like Manhattan Beach, Disneyland and Universal Studios – any young kid’s dream. As it came to planning our next holiday, I really wanted to take ze German to Las Vegas, as he wasn’t convinced… Read more →

Steak of the Art

I have been hoarding a few Bristol hotspots, to write a single article on the city that I frequent now and then for work. But after a particularly delicious evening the other week I have decided just to share what I have and do a guide later! After a long work day I agreed to meet colleagues for dinner at… Read more →

Burmese Pop-Up

Saturday night, I was invited by Mrs Jonas to join her for a fabulous Burma Street Kitchen pop up in Hackney. I have eaten Burmese food only once, during our trip to Chiang Mai last year, and it was delicious. So I was keen to try it again when Mrs J told me she had won some tickets and  her last… Read more →

The Landmark London

Recently I visited The Landmark hotel near Baker Street in London. It is a beautiful location in the heart of touristy hubbub land. 10 minutes walk down the road gets you to Madam Tussauds, which I thankfully only remember from my childhood (funny memory: when my sister asked me to ask the policeman the time and he was actually a waxwork. Hilarious!). The… Read more →

Lass o’ Richmond Hill

Richmond is a lovely part of London, where you can mosey on through the high street once you come out of the station, and enjoy the river views when you feel like it. It is an affluent and verdant pocket of the big smoke, where it is always pleasant to take a stroll – especially through the beautiful Richmond Park,… Read more →

Chotto Matte

Last Friday, I finally got to try out Chotto Matte in Soho! Where to begin? The restaurant opened in September 2013 and I have been dying to get there and sample the Nikkei cuisine on offer, for some time. So what is Nikkei? It is the culinary fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cultures. Apparently Peru has the second largest Japanese… Read more →

Hixter City

Let me start as I mean to go on – I really like this place! A Hubcaps club night out always means a good dinner and drinks with great company. For our pre-christmas meeting we chose the new-ish Hixter City, located in the hidden gem near Liverpool Street that is Devonshire Square. The concept is nice and simple – chicken… Read more →

The Jugged Hare

I recently went to The Jugged Hare near Barbican. As you enter the grade II listed building (part of the famous old Whitbread Brewery which is now the 5 star Montcalm hotel), you are greeted by stuffed, mounted hare’s heads. So very early on, I should say, if you do not like eating meat, or if you are in denial about… Read more →
