Duck and waffle at the Duck and Waffle – review

Andrew and I first met as second year university students when we moved into the same house. That was in 1996, and four cats and one child later, we’re still going strongly. Although we never buy each other anniversary presents or cards, we always like to mark the occasion with a nice meal or holiday. […]

Week 21 – The Frog Restaurant by Adam Handling (review)

Sometimes when you are getting no sleep, no sleep, and more no sleep, the only answer is to go out and get drunk! Okay, that’s not quite what I did at The Frog Restaurant, but my mummy friends and I did treat ourselves to the tasting menu and drinks pairing, which was quite a lot […]

Week 5 2017 – eating wisely, but not well, at the MaE Deli (review)

My lovely friend Jo and I have a tradition of treating each other to a birthday meal each year.

An evening of Indian food with food bloogers at Gaylord – review

I have been to Bierschenke and Ink, and also had vouchers for Whyte […]

F is for France – Cigalon

Oh yes, Alphabet Adventures is back. Charlotte’s lovely baby Henry is a year old now – wowsers – and she is back at work, making it a little bit easier for us all to meet up. Actually, we met up for our F meal in February, but I have only just found the time to write […]

E is for Ecuador – El Rincon Quiteno

Thanks to the recent arrival of Henry, Charlotte’s adorable little baby boy, we haven’t had much opportunity to move ahead with Alphabet Adventures. But Charlotte decided to make the best possible use of her maternity leave (during breaks from caring for Henry, of course!) by searching for a restaurant so that we could continue our adventures […]
