Erebuni Restaurant

Foreword: This brings up the big 75 for this blog. The three-quarter century is a key landmark in virtually any domain. I started this quest in 2013 and one thing is for sure, I wouldn’t have made it this far without the indominatable Mrs Del Monte. Rain or shine, pregnant or not pregnant, nursing or […]

Sri Lankan Food

That’s the name of the place. Sri Lankan Food. Props to the naming committee. No really. You really pushed the boat out there. You knocked it out of the park. Drop the mic, walk away. In case you didn’t realise I’m being sarcastic. There must be a million awesome names for a Sri Lankan food […]

Soe Burmese Cuisine

I’ve plundered all the local restaurants representing far-flung countries so more and more I’m having to venture out and about to the other horrid parts of London (North, East and South. And Central. Yuckers!) But that’s where the weird countries are. And as much as I hate to admit it, Brick Lane is crawling with […]

Say it loud: I’m back and I’m proud!

You think you know who your friends are. You lavish them with your wisdom, witticisms and aesthetic qualities (everyone knows I’m a stone cold milf*) and how do they pay you back? They slack off. Well, I’ll remember this Knockers. I have to travel for a few days and what do you do? You don’t […]

Lahore Mongering

Monumental news everyone: I may have developed a sneaking sliver of admiration for Hipsters. I have for years maintained that the best thing about beards is that I can continue to enjoy meals long after other people have forgotten about them. This is due to the residual aroma, flavour, and, yes, sometimes matter from the […]

Trinidad Flavour

This blog shall be quick and dirty. Like my 12th girlfriend! Zing! And my 16th, 20th, 23rd, 24th, and 27th. To be fair my first eleven girlfriends didn’t know they were my girlfriends. Nor 13th – 17th. The others were perfectly nice home counties girls of whom mummy very much approved, but who all learned […]


  Even I had heard of Tayyabs (http://www.tayyabs.co.uk/) prior to my visit. I’d even queued there once as an artistic act of futility. It was my Charge of the Light Brigade. But more heroic. It would be easy to be deceived, with the teeming uniformed minions, scurrying in all directions, into thinking that this was […]


Dubai is many things, but a Mecca for foodies it is not. Or religious types;­ that’s Mecca. If you like your Fridays TGI and your ice cream Baskin, then it’s the place for you. If you’re not careful, most dining will take place in shopping malls or downtown restaurants like Tony Romas etc. Safe, unchallenging […]

Indian Zing

This is one of the things I’ve been really looking forward to for this blog. Going to a single restaurant and brazenly ticking off a massive country with a gazillion different cuisines. I’m so awesomely conceited that this can only inspire envy and admiration from my adoring readers. Still, if you’re going to encompass an entire […]

Thai Rice

If I owned a Thai restaurant I’d call it Thaitanic and brag about my 32% survival rate (too soon?). I’m sure Thai food is delicious and all, but I’ve rarely ventured beyond green curry, chicken. That’s me referring to the curry not you. Ducky. Green curry is so delicious and tasty that it renders all […]
