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 […]

Lemongrass

Lemongrass Restaurant claims to be the only Cambodian restaurant in the UK. A bold claim that I can’t be bothered to fact check but am going to assume is wrong unless everyone accepts my equally staggering counter claim: Charlie Del Monte is the greatest love machine in Cambodia.

Look it: In the last 15 years we’ve invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, generating a huge refugee population some of whom made their way to London to open delicious restaurants. So here’s what we do: […]

Music For Liberia

Here’s what I don’t get: spicy food. I’m a fan of the spice and pretty darn manly with it. I go for Medium spice at Nando’s not Lemon and Herb like some lily-livered land lubbers I know. I’m pretty sure they’re the only two options a Nando’s. And on a cold winter’s evening in England, […]
