Dirty Bones, Carnaby, Soho, London

Dirty Bones, Carnaby, Soho, London

Carnaby Street does events every now and then and we took advantage of a recent one for a cheaper (cough, bargain) dinner over at Dirty Bones. There’s three branches of Dirty Bones in Carnaby, Soho and Shoreditch. Their menu is New York style American comfort […]

Foxlow, Soho, London

Foxlow, Soho, London

Foxlow arrived to the crowded Soho scene earlier this year and launched with a buzzing half price offer. This was enough incentive to get a dining group from the office along. The style is British-Euro and it’s reasonably good, but might need some time to […]

Restaurant Hyggestund, Copenhagen

Restaurant Hyggestund, Copenhagen

All you need to say is “chicken waffle” and I’m on your table ready to devour. That’s what happened at Restaurant Hyggestund, which happened to be my first meal in Copenhagen. It had a nice level of crowd as well as the mentioned chicken and waffle. Other American-type cuisine is also available, cool to see biscuits and gravy as an option. The setup at Hyggestund means you order at the counter before the food arrives to you. The waffle comes to 130 DKK, the donut 25 DKK, and the juice 40 DKK.

Chicken Cottage, Kilburn, London

Chicken Cottage, Kilburn, London

What’s clucking near you? Today’s review is of the Kilburn branch of the Chicken Cottage chain. Britain has such a curious obsession with these clever cut-priced eateries. It’s laughably cheap how it all is, though one must wonder how they keep those prices down. It’s […]

KFC, City Centre, Glasgow

KFC, City Centre, Glasgow

What can I say? The heart wants what it wants. There’s probably way too many posts on KFCs but maybe I can rationalise it as helping me understand cross-cultural differences. KFC Glasgow on a Saturday night must be one of the most rocking places in […]

Misato, Chinatown, London

Misato, Chinatown, London

Dining at Misato brings me back to the days of being a student. But in the best possible way. It’s some sorcery that the restaurant is able to offer food as cheap as it is. In fact, Misato’s been around twenty five years now so they must have some formula worked out. I believe it is one of the cheapest places around that you can get fed in.

Misty’s Diner, Prahran, Melbourne

Misty’s Diner, Prahran, Melbourne

On the other side of the world my blog counterpart EJ was feeling the chill. Whilst London is feeling toasty, in Melbourne you can barely feel your toes. There isn’t a better panacea for the winter blues than comfort food. And you’ll find that in […]

MEATLiquor N1, Islington, London

MEATLiquor N1, Islington, London

When you head into MEATLiquor, two things are bound to happen. You’ll have a food coma and you’ll have a great time doing so. My bro and I were already done with our *first* dinner and then walked over to Islington for our next fill. […]

Billy and The Chicks,  Soho, London

Billy and The Chicks, Soho, London

Five pounds get you a piece of chicken, fries and a drink. Or so does the sign outside Billy and the Chicks proclaim. It won’t be enough of a meal in itself, but as I was left hungry after my other MealPal order left me partially famished. It comes pretty quick and it’s a happy box that is exciting to open. The size of the chicken was fair, and there is a nice seasoning here. There’s a few sweet notes, amongst other peppery ones. I ┬álike the fries as well but somehow had another case of lots of short ones which wasn’t as enjoyable to eat. So it’s alright, but given how many other bargain basement chicken shops around, not sure there’s enough glitz to make Billy’s stick.
