  • Pate, Confit, Rillette: Recipes from the Craft of Charcuterie

    Monday June 17th, 2019

    ‘Pâté, confit, rillettes’. I would reverently murmur these words like a mystic incantation as I gazed in happy indecision at all those meat counters d’Antan.

  • Pho And Bun

    Saturday June 15th, 2019

    So small you might miss it, Pho & Bun on Shaftesbury Avenue has to compete with some big players all vying for their share of the out of towners food budget, but does it commendably well.

  • Bob's Lobster

    Tuesday June 11th, 2019

    BOB's Lobster is a quite a catch, super fresh seafood in a modern diner setting and with some very inventive dishes that don't all involve the lobster.

  • New Tracklements Chilli And Lemongrass Jelly

    Saturday May 25th, 2019

  • Fancy Crab Restaurant

    Tuesday April 16th, 2019

    It looks like a Doctor Who style monster in the wild, but once caught and cooked the Red King Crab is one of the finest eating crustaceans there is. Trouble is, it's not cheap.

  • Everfresh Breads. No More Mouldy Old Dough

    Saturday March 30th, 2019

    Take off your socks, roll up your trouser legs and wade happily into the world of edible seaweed.

  • Romulo Cafe

    Friday March 8th, 2019

    How often have you heard someone say, ‘I know, let’s go out for a Filipino'? Probably about as often as you’ve heard someone say ‘I fancy a bit of German food tonight.’

    Tuesday February 26th, 2019

    Out of his postcode, Nick also goes out of this world with The Grand Expedition by the Gingerliners
