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.

Laci Konyha, Budapest

Laci Konyha, Budapest

My last weekend saw me adventuring out to Budapest, Hungary. And that’s not a city I knew much about at all. But I landed back in London feeling like I saw a unique place that’s well worth visiting. And well worth raving about. My last […]

Etto Italian Street Pasta, South Melbourne, Melbourne

Etto Italian Street Pasta, South Melbourne, Melbourne

I’ve had a mix of experiences with Etto across Melbourne, with the South Melbourne one being my usual go to due to proximity to my now former office. The menu is mostly pasta, wholly customisable, as well as other Italian treats and sides.

Swiss Chalet, Dufferin Grove, Toronto

Swiss Chalet, Dufferin Grove, Toronto

My week-long Toronto¬†holiday (of eating) kicked off at the Canadian institution that is Swiss Chalet Rotisserie & Grill. There are at least 97 of these stores that I can count, and it has a humble rap for being an old peoples’ dining hall. Still, it has lots of fond memories for my host friend, so it was a perfect platform to start.
