Curiosity almost kills the cat

I think most people know that I will eat essentially anything I see on a restaurant menu. While this generally leads me to finding a number of tasty treats it can also lead to my stomach having to work overtime to handle the food I put in it. Read more

Hawksmoor – eaten and reviewed

Steaks! You either love them or you hate them but at times you just need to have one. A nice medium rare steak, cut with a nice big steak knife always makes me think I am a caveman, eating my catch and enjoying it (though thankfully for everyone involved with more clothes and less hair).

First things first I have no idea how I got the idea that this was a Thai restaurant because it isn’t! Instead the food was described as Malay (which seems to be a grab bag of all southern Asian food) and while spicey is much more than just curry! Read more
