Lunch with Frankie and Benny

Lunch with Frankie and Benny

A Diner Set Menu. It’s a chain restaurant, but I have been impressed with both food and ambiance at Frankie and Benny’s Burleigh House branch on the Strand in London. If one walks across Waterloo Bridge from the station, turns left on the Strand and crosses the road then one reaches Frankie and Benny’s. It…

Heck Bangers and Burgers

Heck Bangers and Burgers

Heck pride themselves on their farmers’ market quality sausages and burgers, and you don’t have to live near a farmer’s market to enjoy them (and even if you did, you probably wouldn’t be able to visit one anyway!). In fact you don’t even have to leave home to get your hands on their products, as…

The Big Fry Burger

The Big Fry Burger

The Big Fry Burger! Sounds tempting, comforting and meaty, and it is. But no animals were harmed in the making of these patties. They are vegan but please, dear reader, do not turn the page. We are not a vegan. I am not even a vegetarian but having said that, we, chez nous, only eat…

Heck for the young at heart

Heck for the young at heart

We have just had a little hint of summer and it looks like it’s time to dust off the BBQ. With lockdown it’s probable that we will spend more time grilling for our isolated family unit, so it’s important that we have the opportunity to ring the changes and keep everybody happy. That’s where Heck…

This originated in Japan with several breeds of cattle being able to produce this style of meat. Wagyu is known for is characteristic fine marbling which…

Hard Rock Café London

Hard Rock Café London

It’s true! I am a Londoner and have never been, until now, to the Hard Rock Café. My guest boasted that he had been before, but that was back in 1975! Yes, this restaurant is iconic and although its food is quintessentially American there is so much that is British. Hard Rock Café was founded…

Patty and Bun, Old Compton Street – restaurant review

Patty and Bun, Old Compton Street – restaurant review

Soho in general and this street in particular became the refuge of Huguenots, French Protestants who fled to England in the early 1680s. The street was named after Henry Compton who raised funds for a local parish church which eventually became St Anne’s Church. Now there is The Patty and Bun at No.18! By the…

CAU Kingston – restaurant review

CAU Kingston – restaurant review

People say it’s all about location. That’s probably true, as there is no finer spot than CAU in Kingston on a hot summer evening. Sitting outside with just a footpath between the diner and the Thames, one can bask in warm contentment, lifting a glass and the silverware being the only exertions. The team behind…

Dirty Bones Kensington for Brunch – restaurant review

Dirty Bones Kensington for Brunch – restaurant review

It’s raining in Kensington and we are hungry for brunch. Yes, that convivial meal twixt brekkie and weekend dinner that allows for a broad menu over which to pore. Kensington is posh and I would venture to say that Dirty Bones has the only entrance in the area that resembles that of an iffy dive…

Donald Russell Spiced Lamb Burgers with Chinese Steamed Buns

by Chrissie Walker   At last the summer is here. We don’t have guaranteed good weather in the UK so when we have warm days we want to make the best of them. There is nothing better than a barbecue on those weekends when the weather cooperates. Sure, it’s a casual meal but one with…

Sticky Fingers – Return with Benny – restaurant review

Sticky Fingers – Return with Benny – restaurant review

One is spoilt for restaurants in London. High-end Michelin-starred, white-tableclothed establishments abound. There are exotic and periodically good curry houses. There are trending trucks offering all manner of international fare. And then there are those enduring restaurants that specialise in meat. Think of some prime beef served with an array of vegetables, and there could…

Sticky Fingers, Kensington – restaurant review

Sticky Fingers, Kensington – restaurant review

Kensington High Street is smart. There is the usual complement of restaurants in the area and they range from the expected Lebanese to the trendy European casual restaurants; but this is a wealthy neighbourhood so there are eateries here that might demand a second mortgage. One would expect to pay a premium for a meal…

Porky’s BBQ at Bankside – restaurant review

Porky’s BBQ at Bankside – restaurant review

I guess the name says it all. BBQ is what Porky’s offers, but this is the real thing rather than the chain variety, which has more to do with fast food; the traditional (Memphis) barbecue on which Porky’s is modelled is rather on the slow side …like 18 hours slow. Joy and Simon Brigg were…

Veggie Burgers Every Which Way by Lukas Volger – review

Veggie Burgers Every Which Way by Lukas Volger – review

Burgers are comforting. We graze on mass-produced patties of variable quality, and I have never had an objection in principle to fast-food burgers as long as the customer eats them as a treat. We blame the mass-produced burger for rising obesity rates but one burger a month does not a chubby diner make. Part of…
