Oporto, South Melbourne

Oporto, South Melbourne

With so much good chicken everywhere in South Melbourne, I’ve never felt the need to trial the flavours over at chain restaurant Oporto. I’ve only had one experience back in Auckland and I found it a bit blah at the time. With the enticement of […]

Hanaichi, Melbourne CBD

Hanaichi, Melbourne CBD

I’ve spent many a lunch or dinner time wandering around Melbourne CBD aimlessly, looking for a food option that’s light, light on the wallet and at least student-quality good. As such I’ve found myself at Hanaichi on many of those occasions. Even after another few […]

Chicken On Clarendon, South Melbourne

Chicken On Clarendon, South Melbourne

Chicken on Clarendon is a classic charcoal chicken takeaway that is run by the world’s nicest people. They offer a range of random Asian dishes and all the fast food staples. Look, the food isn’t going to blow you away, but I’ve always enjoyed the service with a smile. They also look after their regulars super well so go in for the long game.

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

I enjoy irony hunting as much as the next middle-class, poverty tourist hipster. But truth be told, I simply want fried chicken dammit. The houses of chicken are an intriguing institution and there are so many of these stores here in the UK. The ever […]

Tulip Restaurant, Canterbury

Tulip Restaurant, Canterbury

Our once-upon-a time in Canterbury came to a close with the Turkish stylings of Tulip Restaurant. We spied it on our trek home and calculated we had plenty of time for a sit down dinner before the long bus ride home. It’s a rather impressive […]

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 food, so it was one I had my eye on for some time. Also, I love the Carnaby Street area, it’s a nice little retreat from the crowds and tourist traps. So what did we order?

Tombo Poke Matcha Bar,  Soho, London

Tombo Poke Matcha Bar, Soho, London

I’ve had two experiences at Tombo Poke Matcha Bar in Soho. Once with the takeaway via MealPal and another for a sit down group meal. For both experiences I do find the food at Tombo Poke tasty and of high quality but the portions are […]

Nando’s, Fitzrovia, London

Nando’s, Fitzrovia, London

I can never get enough of Nando’s and a recent Nando’s sauce retail promotion that offers a free quarter chicken had me clicking at my heels to get back in. For only £1 you get a mini bottle of Nando’s sauce and that then gives […]

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 a quick service restaurant, with frills in short supply. They pass those savin’s over to you.
