    Review: 32 Great Queen Street

    We have a shortage of good, great British restaurants. There has been so much press lately about how crap British food really is, but you know I wonder, is it really that bad? Everybody has heard about a certain Jamie ranting about how food in this country is the ‘new poverty’. Conversely, there has been positive media on British food with shows such as Great British ...

    Review: Da Aldo, Soho

    I have to talk about the interior. Its got really retro, old wood that look like they’ve been up since the 70’s, and one of the things you’ll notice is the cramped space, appropriately cosy.   The red walls feature a lot of interesting items with throwback new age artwork, big vintage clocks, mandolins and the ceiling even has what appears to be a ...

    Review: Sakura, Oxford Circus

    Sushi is sometimes misunderstood as the culinary delight of raw fish when it actually refers to vinegar-ed rice and roughly translates to meaning sour. Definitions aside, sushi is one of my favourite types of food, its healthy (only 3% fat apparently), simple and tastes great. ...

    Welsh monkfish tales

    I have a confession to make. I’m not actuallly in london at the moment. I’m sightseeing in Wales. Stopping at the township of Pembroke, featuring old castles, swans, 30mph winds and heavy rain. Did i mention the winds? fishy pictures  I was reading about photo essays on the digital photography school blog and thought it would be quite interesting if it was applied to food. Think ...

    Review: Geales posh fish and chips

    Fish and chips is a national symbol. The reason I say so is because everybody has their own personal experience of it. If you ask someone where their favourite chippie is, you’ll get this long gaze (like he’s going down memory lane), with a lowered voice, they go ‘i know this place…’.
