A little bit of NYC in Covent Garden


Shake Shack open its doors mid last year, I think, in Covent Garden and it's taken me this long to pop along and see if they measured up to the local competition and the original in New York.

An Honest Burger, as the name suggests ...


I like what Honest Burgers are bringing to the London burger scene, good honest burgers, no thrills, no gimmicks like over sauced paddys, just plain goodness of a burger that delivers on taste...

Moroccan Style @ Mamounia Lounge Mayfair



Back in November, I received an invite to sample the newly refurbished Mounima Lounge in Mayfair, but Christmas time in the travel industry includes having to go to many Airline and Hotel parties, oh how I tire of them… Yeah right….

Bad Burger @ Five Guys




I love burgers, it's the simplicity of them, I mean it's only seasoned mined meat of varying parts of the cow formed into a patty, grilled or fried until perfectly juicy, stuffed between two pieces of bread and then eaten. Done right it's heaven, done wrong and it's pants.

I've Been Away


Well several months have passed since I even looked at this blog, I was beginning to wonder if I was ever going to open it up again.

Grilled Brunch at Grillshack



Sundays are made for being lazy, they are the only really day of the week we can relax and potter around and do nothing, it’s on these days that I normally cook up a storm in the kitchen and prepare more elaborate dishes or spend all day making a batch of stock. Heaven.

Burger time @ Bukowski Grill



I’ve just realised how inactive I’ve been recently, this is in part because I’m a lazy so and so, and mostly because I’ve been for the last few months writing copy like a mad man for a tour operator I’m now working for.

Last Chance Saloon for Tonkotsu


I’ve been a few times to Tonkotsu and have always gone with high expectations that it will be much better than the last time I ate, but I’ve always left feeling disappointed.
This time though on a post gym meal, I left deeply disappointed that I’ve decided I will not be returning again.

A Rant


I’ve waited several weeks before I could put finger to keyboard and rant about an experience we had at Mishkins.
I feared that before now I would have just gone off on one and ended up really bitching and being hateful, which I’m not but it was a shit experience.
