Last remnants of the Empire

Had dinner at the National Liberal Club tonight. Set menu, always a spiffing good deal. Pea soup followed by a choice of gamon steak or mixed cold meat salad (I choice the later) and then rounded off by desert, or in my case the cheese option. Very satisfying and...

Drinking man’s diet

Today I luncheoned with Anna and Lauren at Cafe Rouge near Kew bridge. Kew bridge not being so far, in my mind, from Hammersmith where I live I thought I would walk along the river… 90minutes later (and 15minutes late) I arrived. A rather pleasant walk but for the...

Lunch at Patogh

Went to have lunch with a friend at Patogh which is an Iranian restaurant off Edgware road. Its one of those bring your own bottle establishments with no corckage charge so we ended up drinking a white Hardy’s (the one with the Koala bear on it). We both had the...

The daily shop

At University I have gotten into the habit of doing a weekly or even monthly shop, with a monthly shop you get fresh vegetables the first few days and fresh meat the first week before swapping over to the remainder of the “BOGOF” food that was frozen upon purchase. ...

Croatian epilogue

I’m now in Monaco for the next 2 weeks until my return to England late on the 2nd of August (start chilling the good stuff). In Croatia a friend and I went to dinner at the Buddah Lounge – The most expensive place in Rijeka… 12GBP a head, including...

Solar Powered Diet

My friend was joining me from London so I asked if a Solar-Powered ipod charger could be brought, it was and it is great (think beans on toast good). Lay on a beach all day, the pain of having to leave the sun and get food meant little was...

Rijeka Cuisne – Diet of the poor.

One of the first things I did on arriving on Rijeka was to go buy some food. This makes sense as where I am staying I have a primitive kitchen and my budget is currently such I can’t afford to eat out all the time. Click here to remedy...

Sausage Days

My last meal in Ljubljana was “Bosnian sausage” which I thought was a little under cooked perhaps, but hot through and through so thats ok. It was quite large and I had 2 of them, they were oddly served with balls of cottage cheese, one was mildly spiced. An...

Day trip to Lake Bled

I woke early and figured out how to go to Lake Bled. I was a little hungover from the night before and drank a bottle of water. I have been told perhaps I should write a few diet style blogs. My advice is put down the fork. Today I drank...

Austria to Slovenia

I visited my Uni friend in Klagenfurt, Austria and had some delicious Sataras (vegetables cooked until soft with paprika, tomatos and pepper then eggs are added and mixed in – make it as spicey as you like) for breakfast as well as many other delicious but everyday foods during...
