Albion

I love this place. We had breakfast here this morning and though the service was slow the breakfast was good and the place lovely to be in on a cool summer morning. Some of us thought the sausage was too bready, others thought it weird that they cooked two slices of bacon together so they […]

Tokyo Diner

In Chinatown which I will try to remember is adjacent to Leicester Square we went for sushi. Sustainable sushi so no tuna and not much variety of anything else. It was fine for an after theatre bite if you are in the area and must have sushi which my kids felt they had to do. […]

Camden Market and Locks

I was looking forward to Jessica Lang’s Lyric Pieces but it turned out not to be as good as I remembered. It featured large black accordion pieces moved around the stage. The second […]
