People know me to be quite tough. I have a bit of a reputation. Let’s just say tramps don’t want to mess with me in GTA V because I’m quite handy with a golf club. And Nazis/innocent bystanders don’t mess with me in Call of Duty. And Princess Peach doesn’t mess with me in Mario […]

De Hems Dutch Cafe Bar

Like German food and my love-making, Dutch food can be really rather good if unheralded. If I concentrate and try to recall lyrics from Michael Bublé songs I can keep going for virtually minutes. Bitterballen are the quintessential Dutch food: Deep fried, cheesy and moreish. Only partly like my love-making. They also do unconvincing hot […]

You’ve Got A Pretty (ply)Mouth

Quiet of late I know, but autumn has finally arrived and that is when I get really moody and introspective like someone famous like that. Also, I’ve not been in London for a series of weekends so it’s tricky to tackle the quest when I’m not here. Still, it’s hardly fair to deprive you of […]

I’m Back: The Del Montemoon: Part Deux: Ecuador

Kerbisher & Malt

What could be more English than chips and fish mate yes? England goes up on the Big Board. I suppose I could use this for the whole of the UK but I’m curious to see if Welsh and Irish cuisines are represented in London. A burger at O’Neills does not count. My wife-to-be went, counter […]


Let’s get all the jingoistic ribbing out the way now: G’day cobbers. A dildo ate my barbie. Harold and Toadfish from Neighbours. I don’t know what Australian cuisine is. Anyone? I’ve eaten terribly well on the occasions I’ve been lucky enough to go there, but I doubt I ate something that was uniquely Australian other […]
