Amazing Billy and His Tasty Chicks

Originally published in my other blog Panasian Kitchen We heard about Billy and Chicks via social media and wanted to try it.  We'd heard a lot of good things and as we love southern fried chicken we were very curious about how their chicken tasted.  We also found a Timeout voucher online that pretty much … Continue reading Amazing Billy and His Tasty Chicks

Craving Korean comfort food

Alan will be making feijoada tonight so that is an absolute treat and completely comforting.  But I find that because of the weather I am craving a lot of Asian food at the moment.  I am particularly wishing we lived in London so that I can order Korean food from Deliveroo! I would love, at … Continue reading Craving Korean comfort food

The friendliest fish and chippy on the Soho block!

We'd walked past Poppie's in Soho several times during our recent trips to London.  The Soho branch is on Old Compton Street and Poppie's in Soho has taken over what used to be Bobby Chin's House of Ho.  Whilst the signage is mostly black and white, the bunting strung across the signage makes it very … Continue reading The friendliest fish and chippy on the Soho block!

We took shelter and the smell of coffee  wafting … Continue reading A gem off the beaten path: Coleman Coffee Roasters

BIRD is not the word

Given the choice between beef, poultry, pork and seafood, I would choose poultry over pork, then seafood then beef.  Beef is probably the best source of protein, but I would chicken over most meats any day. In the last quarter of 2014, I wrote about my Chicken Bucket List.  It was a list of up-and-coming … Continue reading BIRD is not the word

Hudson New York Bar and Kitchen, Colchester

I'm not much of a beef eater so I hardly order steaks.  If I do order anything made from beef, it would probably either a salt beef sandwich or pastrami (the more kosher, the better!).  So imagine my delight when I found out you could get a salt beef bagel from an American-inspired bar in … Continue reading Hudson New York Bar and Kitchen, Colchester
