May 10, 2018

In my eight years of food blogging I couldn’t tell you how many times my friends have asked me to make them my plus one on a review. But I could tell you how many times I have met their requests:

Q’s Chicken Katsu

April 15, 2018

One day about two years ago, Q woke up with the ambition to master a homemade chicken Katsu. It’s one of his favourite dishes and now that he’s nailed it, we get to enjoy them at home!

This is a meal that can be cooked in around 20 minutes. It’s speedy and absolutely delicious!

Lunch at The Park Tavern, SW18

September 3, 2017

Waking up after a night of reviewing not one, but two restaurants for dinner I was surprised (surprised in the sense of ‘what is wrong with my gargantuan appetite’ rather than it being unusual. It’s not) to find my stomach rumbling and ready for another day of tasty discoveries. Today I was heading South of The Thames in search of what you know to be some of my favourite varieties of food: pub grub.
