    Taiwanese Food Festival…This Sunday!

    21/10 UPDATE – There appears to be a youtube video preview for this event here. Now, I don’t usually announce events on my blog, but I went to last year’s version of this food fest through my very Taiwanese extended family, and was totally impressed ...

    Ida: Kensal Love.

    Ain’t it just a beauty? I couldn’t help but show you photographs of this lovely little Italian on the corner of Fifth Avenue, toward Kensal Green. Since my move to North London, I have been actively seeking out goodies in the vicinity. And I think I might have found a really nice ...

    Mirch Masala: Deflated Karahi.

    Well, you can’t knock the restaurants around Whitechapel which serve excellent Punjabi food. Of course, I haven’t been to every single one – and who hasn’t tried Tayyabs and Needoo right? – but I think it is safe to say that most deliver food of a certain quality at pleasingly ...

    Gauthier Soho : Truffle Extravaganza.

    I’m dreaming. This is a radical fantasy, the food is beyond excellent, the filtered water is free, a rainbow assortment of bread flows (freely too) all night long, with the startling choice of salted and unsalted Normandy butter on the table. All hail the new chieftain of Soho, ...

    8 Station Terrace: Remembering Lambshanks.

    Somewhere along the way, I’d lost track of what it means to be a food blogger. I rode the chu-chu express along with the rest of the zeitgeist, squeezed my way to the front of the queue for a place at London’s trending restaurants, and had somehow forgotten about unearthing local gems. ...

    Wiko Gastronomy Preview Oct 2010.

    And here is a sneaky look at the Top 20 belly shakers for October, rankings put together by the chaps over at Wikio. They measure blog influence by how well networked they are, in relation to one another and to the rest of the interwebs, or so I understand. ...
