Champor-Champor – eaten and reviewed

Trying to avoid the tempation for another Indian stye, curry for three months in a row I decided that I could temper my curry fest by switching continents and heading off to Thailand for the delights of Champor-Champor. 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

Imli – eaten and reviewed

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!

Painted Heron – eaten and reviewed

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.

Chakalaka – eaten and reviewed

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 – I did and got some rather bizarre results!)

A good restaurant – Benares

After having indulged my work colleagues to an awesome cake a few days earlier I thought it was high time that I actually treated myself to something – it was my birthday of cause!

I decided to book a table at a restaurant I have had my eye on since seeing the head chef on “The Great British Menu” and having also sampled their food at the Taste of London festival. I booked up, got looking nice and clean and tidy (and in my opinion pretty damb fine) and headed off to Berkley Square to Benares restaurant. Read more
