108 Restaurant, Copenhagen, restaurant review

Noma, the name said with reverence, is the holy grail of the food world. Reopened just three months ago, it is the aspiration of many but visited by few. And I, friends,remain aspiring. So,when in Copenhagen last month, I visited 108 instead. 108 is very Noma-esque, the head chef being Kristian Baumann, an apprentice of Redzepi, the renowned chef and co-owner of … More 108 Restaurant, Copenhagen, restaurant review

Typing Room, my type of place, restaurant review

When NN announces at dinner in Malta that she will be in London in a few weeks, I’m delighted. She is an excellent dinner companion, not least because she thinks only in terms of pleasure, rather than cost. I know I can choose somewhere indulgent and she won’t flinch. I am close to booking Roganic of which I have only read reviews … More Typing Room, my type of place, restaurant review

Enigma, shrouded in secrecy, restaurant review

The Clove Club

When A told me back in January he was coming to visit, I had, within a matter of minutes, booked lunch for both days he would be here. The first, The Clove Club, had been on my list for a while; little did I know how utterly wonderful it would be. Now, you could argue … More The Clove Club

It was with much anticipation that I headed out on Wednesday night. My destination, James Cochrane EC3, had been on my list for sometime and had recently received a slew of brilliant reviews. My dates for this belated Valentines, the lovely Seetal of Savla Faire and Georgie of Georgie Porgie, two passionate food bloggers I … More James Cochrane EC3

Dining at Dabbous

Tom and I worked together in my first job when I came to London. My old boss deserves many thanks. She said she knew we’d work well together, we did, but more than that we became best friends. Now, Tom lives in Hong Kong and, so, time spent together is more precious than ever. When … More Dining at Dabbous
