See Sushi for Glorious Gyoza and More

See Sushi for Glorious Gyoza and More

Paddington is not an area I’m familiar with, but if I’m offered food, I can be coaxed just about anywhere around London. Well, nearly anywhere. Until the Northern Line spur is built through Nine Elms, I’m afraid Battersea is a bit of a mission to get to for me. Oh, and pretty much anywhere on … Continue reading

A Beautiful Bun Bounty at Pho Spitalfields

A Beautiful Bun Bounty at Pho Spitalfields

This past Wednesday I was a guest of Pho‘s most recently opened location in Spitalfields, whereupon I ate everything, including a tiny mushroom that was in my massive bowl of bun. Although I’ve eaten in quite a few Vietnamese restaurants in my day, with Orlando having a vibrant Vietnamese food scene and having a Vietnamese … Continue reading

Luminous Splendour: Heliot at The Hippodrome

Luminous Splendour: Heliot at The Hippodrome

When I was invited to attend dinner and drinks at the newly restored Hippodrome‘s restaurant, Heliot, I was intrigued. The building has a great deal of history, as I found out from the video on The Hippodrome Casino’s website. Also, from watching the video, I was curious how the restoration project would turn out. The … Continue reading

Şömine, the Turkish Diner of Dalston

Şömine, the Turkish Diner of Dalston

Sömine, Somine or Şömine. It’s only recently I’ve been referring to “that 24 hour soup place” by name, and even now I’m probably not pronouncing the name correctly. However you refer to it, Sömine is a treasure of Dalston. It provides excellent Turkish food at a great value at all hours of the day or … Continue reading

Sandwich Bar, Robinson Street

I love sandwiches. If there was a type of food that I was restricted to eating, I would pick sandwiches over pizzas, curries, sushi, burritos, wraps or any other sorts. I could potentially live and live all right as a sandwichterian. Thankfully, I won’t have to (as I do love some pizza & etc), but … Continue reading

Merkato, Caledonian Road

I’m a big fan of the Ethiopian food I used to get in Orlando, so when I moved to London last year and began taking the 91 from Holloway to Bloomsbury, I thrilled at the sight of at least three different Ethiopian restaurants on Caledonian Road as the bus lumbered along.  Unlike in Orlando, where … Continue reading

Pub #31: The Princess of Wales, Chalcott Road

The Princess of Wales was part of a modest three-pub pub crawl my friend Tom and I embarked upon one Thursday evening in June.  Come to think of it, what is the minimum amount of pubs that quantifies a “crawl”?  It wouldn’t be two.  I’m thinking three.  Three seems like a fair enough number, especially … Continue reading

Delicious Pizza… When It Happens

So, my website header for the month of June (and possibly July if I forget to change it) is a shot of a really delicious pizza I had a couple weeks back at Litro, this place along the borders of Holloway and Highbury on Drayton Park.  It was a surprise find, as I walked past … Continue reading

Pub #27: The Crown and Sceptre, Foley Street

Last month, after hanging out with some of my coursemates from Anthropology of Food at the Marquis de Cornwallis in Bloomsbury, I wandered westward and met up with my friend Graham, whom I hadn’t seen since the visit to The Landseer.  We went to a Sam Smith’s pub in the North Soho/Fitzrovia area for a … Continue reading
