EFES Turkish Restaurant & the Whitechapel Gallery

At the end of Brick Lane, or the beginning, we chose it because it is close to Whitechapel Gallery where we are headed for an art talk. Efes wasn’t worth returning to. We had a mix of kabobs and some spinach bread. No thrill. Again, a google search, and a book fair? And into the […]

Eat Tokyo – Holborn

I found good sushi, really good I think. Though I think Eat Sushi is a chain I didn’t get the chain feel. The chef was clearly in charge, he had his picture in the menu and in deference I ordered the two specials of the day. I sat at the bar, stuck in my headphones, […]

Kitchen W8

Totally yummy meal at Kitchen W8 and what a lovely place to walk. I got off the tube a 15 minute walk away according to citymapper but I managed to take 45 and I could have taken longer.

To Marlow

Three trains and just over an hour from London and we have seen at least two things of note. First at the station at Slough. A stuffed dog. A real, once was alive, 120 year old, stuffed dog. In a case, on the platform. An explanation found on a blog called ianvisits.co.uk. He has a […]

2 Xiao Long Bao in Chinatown, a garden, the river, a wander

Last night we took a long bus ride towards dinner. The bus was on diversion which I still dont quite understand. Can you get off? How do you know when it’s going on diversion? Where will it resume its path? Londoners I have asked dont really seem to know. And a google search doesn’t provide […]
