Ukraine

I left Hungary and headed for Ukraine. Everyone else seemed to go throught the border at speed but i was stopped. They could not believe an English person would come to the Ukraine – maybe Kiev or Odessa or Yalta I suppose but not Tchop on my way to...

Chicken wrapped in bacon and filled with asparagus and cheese

long title, and so unimaginative, apologies all round. My main reason for using this internet cafe is to recharge my ipod on the USB port before I travel to Ukraine tomorrow. But as i’m here i’ve posted a small blog about a street performance I saw here on my website...

Cottage Cheese Pasta

For lunch before the football i settled for a Caesar Salad, I wanted something more Hungarian but the heat put me off trying a stew. However after the football and during the F1 Grand Prix I had “Borjúpaprikás túrús csuszaval” which is veil with Hungarian cottage-cheese pasta. A stew without...

Budapest exotic cuisine numero uno:

Last night i had 2 pancaked stuffed with weirdness, sorry i cant remember the name it was 2am and i was shattered. also sorry about any keyboard errors in all future posts, this is an qwertz keyboard – read my rant here entitled “first day in Budapest”. Today I searched...

…stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood.”  I’ve managed to finish all my exams and will now stop leisurely revising and get back to the more arduous task of writing things like this. Pre exam-stress food today was a ham and cheese bagel with plenty of mustard. Post exam-trauma...

Trampagne

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to a little drink I have grown accustomed to. It takes the basic formula for a snakebite and pushes the knife a bit deeper and then twists it. By mixing together in equal parts Whitelightning and Special Brew we arrive...

Budapest information?

Today I rose early to get back to Brighton. I ate a ham and cheese toasty on arrival and am now chewing gum… I just booked a one way flight to Budapest in Hungary. If anyone knows anything much about the place I would be grateful for any information!...

Bar 1001.

Tonight I went to Bar 1001 in Brick Lane. It is a most unusual place. On the street they were serving BBQ/outside food in what appeared to be an alleyway. One would be excused for mistaking it as a soup kitchen for the down and out. I waited for my...
