Iberica Marylebone – Review

Iberica Counter

Iberica Marylebone – A Spanish Sojourn for London Ladies who Lunch: Marylebone is perhaps one of the most unlikely parts of London to be dubbed a ‘village’.  Right in the heart of the City, there’s little green space and for the most part a population of city apartment dwellers and visitors.  Yet there is a […]

World’s End Market – King’s Road

Worlds End Market Restaurant

The World’s End Market Restaurant and a Walk Down Memory Lane: I was not the sort of teenager who would sneak out of my dorm to go and see the Sex Pistols at the Haymarket in Leicester.  Far too shy, I idolised those girls in my year who did just that and never seemed to […]

32 The Old Town, Clapham

Venison Pie 32 The Old town

Escaping the Cold and Longing for Summer at 32 The Old Town: Ever since the dream of buying my first flat became a reality, I’ve wanted to live in Clapham Old Town.  When I first looked, the only think I could have afforded in this part of town was a run-down-close-to-shoebox-size studio over a shop. […]

Lunch at Kouzu – Affordable Luxury

Truffled Yellowtail

Sushi and More at Kouzu – Healthy, Affordable Lunch: A few months ago I went to Kouzu for the first time.  Still in ‘soft launch’ phase, it was a great experience, watching the very talented sushi chefs prepare a visually impeccable and delightfully fresh series of dishes.  I was invited back recently, perhaps a little prematurely, […]

Enoteca Rabezzana – an Italian in the City

Enoteca Rabezzana - Frito Misto di Mare small

Farringdon’s Latest Italian Joint – Enoteca Rabezzana: Most of the time I rather enjoy working from home.  I can get up at leisure, dress in ultra comfortable and extremely uncool clothes, stop any time for a coffee, biscuit and gazing out of the window break and have long and earnest discussions with the cat in […]
