The Full Montiel

Though the pace of my blogging has slowed dramatically, the pace of my feeding is unabated. And so it was when myself, Mrs Del Monte and little Vengeance went to Spain for a break, taking in some of the Costa Brava and a lot of Barxcelona, a little city I discovered in north west Spain. […]

Cry Me A Rivington

The problem with the Rivington Grill (http://www.rivingtongrill.co.uk/) (or RG as I call it) is the location. It’s mired in the stinking East End besieged by fleets of hipster douches with their Amish beards and artisan skateboards but far too edgy to actually go inside. No they’d prefer to suck on organic quinoa from the back […]

Gay Paris

What people don’t know about the French is that they’re almost as perverted and degenerate as the Germans. (Can you guess who rank below even the Germans? Eskimos.

But there’s no helping the dozens of females upon whom […]

Garufin

Think Argentinian food and you think steak. And nothing else. My image of all Argentinians is they have steak juice with their morning steak; they mount their steakcycles, zoom off to the steak factory where they rail over their failure to possess the sheep infested Falkland Islands. That’s their biggest gripe about the Falklands. It’s […]

Lola & Simón

You still can’t believe it, but a year ago last Sunday Mrs Del Monte bowed to the inevitable and got married all over me. It was a brief but touching ceremony following her family tradition of punching all eligible women of our mutual acquaintance in the face. I thought that holding a roll of pennies […]

Prosperity Restaurant

Prosperity Restaurant (http://www.prosperity-london.co.uk) was converted from a café/Ukrainian deli to a restaurant last month so we got the impression that feedback was appreciated when we were done. Here is the feedback: Yummy! Mrs Del Monte and I met Stan and Knockers there relatively early and it was yet to get busy. It seemed awfully quiet […]
