Many thanks to 'old father thames' for this guest review. I am working in Hampton Wick, which although is in Greater London takes 2 hours to get to from my North London lair. So, I stay over one night a week. During the long evenings away from my beloved, my mind turns to nosh and... Continue Reading →
Thanks to guest contributer 'Old father Thames' for this post (I know, how strange). We were given tickets to see Eddie Izzard at the Palladium. I’m not his greatest fan, but I selflessly agreed to attend as my wife likes him and we’ve seen his show many times over the years. Also, it was... Continue Reading →
Thanks to regular contributor Marie @planteatingposts for this review. The Turkish restaurants in North London are a strange and wonderous thing. Strange because no matter the day or hour they are rammed and busy. Even if every other restaurant along Green Lanes is totally empty, there is always a jammed happy crowd in every one...

It was sweltering and jammed full, with people lining the sides of the canal, the water bright green with summer algae.... Continue Reading →
The first thing I noticed when I unwrapped my falafel from its neat little bag was that the “pitta” it was in looked nothing like any pitta I’d had before...
Brent Cross shopping centre is known for its shops. There are loads of them. 120 to be precise. There’s even a pop up beach in the summer, where literally 350 tonnes of sand and 100 palm trees are plonked into the North West London car park...
London. The Big Smoke. Mr Falafel. After a grueling couple of hours in the Science Museum, where we had seen Tim Peake's actual space craft (v. disappointing) and learnt that scientists do lots of weird shit to mice, enough was enough. None of this learning and 'culture' malarky. We needed to get down to it.... Continue Reading →
Mermaid Fish Bar : 189 Lower Clapton Road London E5 8EGHackney Downs It was Wednesday evening. We had spent it pleasantly watching 'noise' in an old church in Hackney. As we tiredly trudged home, almost deaf after the intense wall of noise we had experienced, hunger rumbled in our bellies and I decided to pop... Continue Reading →
Rush rush rush. Where has the time gone? There is certainly a faster pace of life here, I must say. We've been back in the UK for a few months, but the falafels have been fewer and far-er between. Needless-to-say, we did manage to enjoy a very large one in ....London, on the day of... Continue Reading →
