Book Club goes Dutch

Did you know that the Boozy Bunch are not just reviewers but readers too? That’s right, folks, we’re the perfect date: smart, sexy and usually full of alcohol. For this month’s book club, we were reading ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ by Margaret Atwood. A rollicking good read if you’re into a dystopian world of female subjugation and forced…

First eats with EatFirst

For once the stars aligned and I managed to escape work in time to take up Angelica “Jelly” Malin’s invite to the EatFirst x About Time supper club. Although it’s taken me a month to write it up (sorry!), the evening was most excellent both in terms of the food & wine and also the…

The Weekly Munch, 17-23 Sep 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Grant: It was a Cambridge wedding weekend for us, so we managed to get a last minute booking to Midsummer House, Cambridge’s only two-Michelin star restaurant. It was a lunch booking, but it was a lovely meal, with some…

Dirty Burger: The name says it all

You know those times when you’ve been drinking. Like, say a lot. And you really need something to eat? And all you want is a really greasy, messy burger? Dirty Burger is definitely one of my go to places for when that happens. So the last time I went, I was kind of expecting a…

Airport dining? Try Kushinobo, awesome fried food on sticks!

It is so sad when another holiday draw to a close. Oh the (exaggerated) emotions of sadness and longing, holidays in Japan are never long enough. We always end our trip with a night at the Royal Haneda hotel- book early enough, it can be fairly reasonable and nothing beats the feeling of waking up at…

Itadaki Zen, Europe’s first vegan Japanese

I’m an omnivore that quite likes going to vegetarian-specific places, as despite drawing from a more constrained set of ingredients, they often produce more creative and interesting dishes as a result. Well, either that or you get a bunch of average dishes with rubbery tofu on everything. When I heard that London had a place…

Chuck Burgers: Not to be confused with Chuck, the TV show

Vicky: Grant was kind enough to take me to Chuck Burger for my birthday as it nearly smashed into National Burger Day. We both arrived at the joint with high hopes as I (unlike everyone else) really enjoyed my brunch (mainly because I didn’t have burnt toast and ate enough) at sister restaurant Hot Box…

The Weekly Munch, 10-16 Sep 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Sanj: Curiosity got the best of me for my fiancé’s birthday lunch and I took him to Europe’s very first vegan and organic Japanese place, Itadaki Zen. I was pleasantly surprised by the food which was fresh, colourful and…

L’Enclume, Cartmel

My husband and I had a bit of a mini holiday up in the Lake District. I clearly use way too many hair products as I had earned us enough points buying Aveda products for two free nights at a spa hotel on Lake Windermere (annoyingly not good on weekends and also I don’t use…

Ball Donut Park, Naha

‘Toto, I don’t think we are in Japan any more’, Japanese Dorothy (Jdot) said to her robot dog, when they stepped foot on International street (Kokusai Dori), the main drag of Naha, Okinawa. Okinawa is often referred to as the Hawaii of Asia and it’s pretty easy to mistake yourself in 80’s/90’s Waikiki (except people don’t speak…
