How many restaurants have you spent the last few years saying you must visit? How often does a place get mentioned in conversation and you find yourself saying, “I’ve heard it’s great, I’ve been meaning to go!” Well The London Restaurant Festival, now in its fourth year, is here to help you cram all those restaurants you’ve been dying to visit into a one day tour all throughout October. Tapas tours, Chinese tours, Japanese tours, Champagne themed, you name it, they’ve got it covered. The awesome Tiger Beer invited us to Chinatown to check out their tour of 6 restaurants in 6 hours. I’m going to stop here and you’re going to read on because I know you can’t resist the food photography that’s going to follow!
Believe it or not, there’s more to France than Paris, in the same way that there’s more to England than London. Chances are, like us, you’ve been missing out on a huge chunk of a beautiful country with so much to offer. On one end of the spectrum there are Mediterranean beaches and on the other the snowy French Alps. The Dordogne Valley fills the gap into between these two parallels with wondrous landscapes, quaint villages and esteemed French cuisine. Sit back and enjoy the view Through The Lens once again as we capture the beauty of Brive-la-Gaillarde.
Yin here! before I hand off to DJB who’s our very own in-house Ainsley Harriet in the making. We’ve been quiet on the site front, mainly my fault due to home renovation and lack of wifi. All to change this week with a travel competition and a few features coming your way. From a site that started off writing about street culture to all things that we liked and as we grew as people, the site did too. That’s why I’m proud to present our first family cooking feature. I’ll let DJB takeover from here…
Dante’s Fried Chicken, goodness me. Derek and I headed down to the press brunch last Sunday and here I am almost a week later, still reminiscing the taste of that chicken. It’s another league to any fried chicken that I’ve had in London in the past. Perfect texture, moisture, crispyness – you name it. I’m dreaming about chicken.
I don’t know about you but I love breakfast. When I wake up in the morning though I rarely have time for more than a bowl of cereal and a banana, the opportunity to eat out then is always a delight. When visiting No.11 Pimlico Road the delights don’t stop at the food, the newly refurbished Chelsea space makes for a fabulous experience from dawn into dusk.
