With a rather expensive Christmas behind me and an equally expensive shopping trip planned (in the good old new years sales) I was thinking about the best way to continue with my journey. It was cold; I was a bit stressed from all the people on the streets so really it had to be another curry! So I crept off Oxford Streets and down to Soho to find Imli and be surprised at the value for money I found! Read more

Everyone loves a good curry (at least that is what I would like to think as I certainly do and I believe that I have rather good taste) so I popped down to Chelsea to see if their restaurants would be as good as their location and the decadence of many of the houses down there. This indeed gave the impression of the ‘local’ curry house but with of course extra style and without that oh so often dodgy stomach afterwards! Read more

With the days getting darker, colder, wetter and all together more depressing and my time in South Africa feeling all the more a distant memory I thought now was probably the best time to start of my restaurant quest and get the memories of my awesome holiday flowing back to me like the salt river I got stuck on the wrong side of by popping down to Putney to sample the South African delights of Chakalaka (try saying after a few drinks â€“ I did and got some rather bizarre results!)

With the brand spanking new TimeOut Eating Guide 2007 in my hands I can finally produce my restaurant wish list for the upcoming year.
I love going out eating, its always good to get out of the house and see new places; equally as I hate washing up its also a good opportunity to miss out on that thankless chore once in a while and treat myself to a night of culinary enjoyment, though I will admit my wallet does sometimes complain (or may that be the drink playing tricks on me again!?!?). My restaurant wish list is gained from flicking through the TimeOut guide, seeing what takes my fancy then picking the best of those out so I can treat myself to one a month for the rest of the year; unfortunately this time around I could only cut it down to 15 so I will have to double up for a couple of months and live like a hermit – thatâ€™s all fine in the name of food! Essentially I want to find some of the best places to eat in London and then recommend them to you; I have gone for a selection of over 10 different cuisines so hopefully there is something for everyone.
To get your taste buds going I am publishing my list for next year (though I will be starting this month now – I have no idea of order yet and can be swayed it you want me to check out places before you go there, or indeed fancy going there because you like the idea of it!!) Read more
