张家界 – A Place in Heaven

出门观光,为国争光,把钱花光,身体健康   The 张家界 national forest is one of the most breathtaking sights for mountainous scenery in China. The UNESCO World Heritage Site in Hunan Province 湖南省 is a magnificent natural phenomenon that inspired films like the floating mountains in Pandora and much of Chinese mythology.     On my 7 day trip to Hunan, we covered…

Jubo – Korean Fast Food

If you haven’t tried it, you need to get yourself some Korean D…rumsticks. I don’t know much about korean fried chicken but I do know about chicken from the cottage, and oh boy does the latter seem so pale and pidgeon-like in comparison to the juicy pieces rolled in golden armoury of batter challenging everything…

Cucina Aselina

Modelled after the same restaurant in New York City, Cucina Aselina is now part of a luxuriously edgy five star establishment in Aldwych. Housed in the ME hotel, the ethos to the restaurant is evidently a portrait of contemporary Italy and our guess was that the clientele they catered to were just as savvy. Without…

Franco Manca

The perfect lover is one who turns into a pizza at 4am. Until I can do that to all of my dates, there is only one solution – Brixton Village has the real deal and here I am today in search of better company. This is a true story of one woman’s struggle to find…

Issy’s Milky Way

The vintage way of London living. Think Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and Buddy Holly. This fun, fresh 50′s American style diner at 28 Camden passage provides extremely satisfying milkshakes, cookies, whoopie pies, ice-cream, hot dogs, and cheese sandwiches. I can’t wait to go back and reward myself for doing so well on that detox…   The Elvis…

Honest Burgers

It’s been a long time since I’ve been completely blown away by a concept as humble as a burger, yes this post is about burgers and people who like to eat them. Doesn’t get any deeper than that. I’ve eaten quite a few of them already, but JESUS this experience was something else. Let’s go.…
