About last night…Mexican authenticity

I came across Santo Remedio completely by accident, purely because I’ve walked by it a few times and thought it looked cosy. It was a happy accident though, as Santo Remedio has appeared on several lists of the best Mexican restaurants in London. I adore Mexican food so this is my idea of a good…

The Barbary, Covent Garden

Being labelled ‘the best restaurant in London’ gives The Barbary in Neal’s Yard a lot to live up to. The little sister of established London eatery The Palomar, the restaurant takes its inspiration from the Barbary coast. Good thing the food is amazing then…read my review on Weekend Notes here

Comforting Ramen

I think this was the restaurant’s Soho Ramen. Tonkotsu, Soho. There are lots of branches of Tonkotsu scattered around London. Check out my review of Tonkotsu for Weekend Notes here:

Warming up the night

I don’t eat much Indian food, but when I do, I go to town! Here is a picture of a chicken nariyal I enjoyed recently. I think there were samosas and prawn crackers lingering nearby as well. The Elachi, Belper, Derbyshire

Finally tried Haggis

I managed to visit Scotland finally- after years of wanting to go there. It’s been top of my wish list for a while now. And whilst I was there, I grabbed the opportunity to try haggis. I decided to have mine as part of a burger. Verdict: it was delicious. Haggis and burger- The Auld…

Tempura Prawns

A few weeks ago,  I visited Hyper Japan,  a festival of all things Japanese,  taking place at the O2 arena,  Greenwich.  One of the great things to do there is experience Japanese cuisine,  hence we sampled the above Tempura prawns and noodles.

Falafel in Pitta

My friend cooked this for me, it was lovely. I’ve never had falafel before, so this was completely new to me, however I will definitely be eating it again. As you can see from the pictures below, the food was quite simply arranged and was great for sharing.   

Breaded Calamari

I really like calamari,  as you can probably tell.  This was taken at a Mexican restaurant and was really lovely,  so much so that it even converted my friend,  who doesn’t even like calamari. Baja,  Bedford

In the mood for Mexican

I seem to be eating a lot of Mexican food recently.  Here is a picture of last night’s dish, sampled at Baja in Bedford: I really loved this and would recommend it.  Definitely would go back.
