Thai Food at the Blue Elephant


Last week I kicked off my weekend with some Thai food at the Blue Elephant.

Now this restaurant is one bridge too far from my house as it sits just across the river in Fulham. I really love its authentic decor and I'm not exaggerating when I say that it feels like you are in Thailand when you walk through their door. Till you look outside and see the Thames Clipper whizz by. But hey, dining with a view of London by the Thames might not sound as exotic as Thailand, but it's nice nonetheless.

We started off with some wine and veggie spring rolls and a spicy dip. I don't know what it is with Thai places, but of all cuisines in the world, I think Thai dishes are the prettiest. The springrolls tasted lovely as well, although I still don't know why they always come in uneven numbers, even when you're dining in an even numbered party.

Pergola on the Roof


When spring comes to town so do the roof top bars. Today I had a peek at the brand spanking new Pergola in the roof in Shepherd's Bush.

Turkish Food at Petek


Last week I was introduced to the wonderful Turkish food at Petek in Finsbury Park. A friend had been raving about it, so he finally got me to go and try their cooking.

Things to Do Around Lake Como


Lake Como has got a bit of a rep for being ritzy and expensive, but I found it isn't just for folks like George Clooney and there are actually lots of things to do around Lake Como for people like you and me.
