A new menu, devised by “My Greek Kitchen” presenter Tonia Buxton, is available at The Real Greek.
There have been plenty of times, when writing a restaurant review, that I felt tempted just to write: “It was great!” or “amazing” or “stunning” or whatever other synonym the thesaurus on my word processor spits out, and let the photos speak for themselves.
Suddenly it’s that time of year again. Christmas. Time has flown past in a blink and even the Olympics have become a distant memory. For the last time this year I organised a food blogger get together and met up with blogging buddies Jeanne, Sarah and Solange.
Are you in London? If you need some cheering up with the potential to have a fit of giggles, take the lift at the Royal Festival Hall where voices will sing scales up and down according to the direction you travel. The absurdity of it makes it effectively hilarious – it was a refreshing change […]
If you’re unfamiliar with a cuisine you tend to peruse the menu for a very long time not knowing what to order. Completely stumped I asked the waitress for recommendations.

If you have all the best products at your disposal surely you can create the perfect meal? It’s a wonder someone didn’t think of this novel concept sooner!
I found that most British restaurants’ strong point lies in main dishes and by the time starters are considered let’s just say their freezers are brimming with bits and pieces that need chucking in the deep fat fryer. Far Eastern restaurants are especially guilty of serving greasy starters and in this light Pho is a […]

One mind-blowing bite of Prawn, Snapper and Watermelon Ceviche (£9.50) made me realise how lacklustre the Salmon Ceviche was at my Cabana review meal.
