International Street Food Challenge: Copper and Wheat’s Croque Monsieur au Comté

I had a lot of fun foraging my foodie way through TravelSupermarket’s International Street Food Challenge a couple of weeks ago in Shoreditch. The free event offered guests the chance to sample a variety of authentic and delicious dishes cooked by a variety of vendors from around the world. Most of the traders on hand were from London. However, flown in all the way from Copenhagen was the popular duo of Frenchy gourmand maestros: Copper and Wheat.

My Food Assembled: Bon Appetit!

So. Food Assembly. After a month of trying out this convenient new way to shop locally and seasonally, it’s safe to say I’m a fan. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to give the service a go over the past month and to sample some of the tastiest butter, ricotta, bacon, chicken, seafood and fresh veggies I’ve ever come across in London. And getting to meet the actual producers and see where my money went added such value to the experience!

Classic Old School Italian Night Out at Getti, Jermyn Street

Hey, I’m all for innovation and for people attempting to wow my palate in new and different ways. Indeed, that’s what’s made writing about the London dining scene such a killer gig over these past several years. But – and it’s a big ole booty butt – if something ain’t broke, don’t fix it. And in the case of Jermyn Street’s mainstay trattoria, Getti, everything seemed A-Okay and in delicious working order during my recent visit.

We agree! Innovation has its place but we're all about the classics and getting them right before getting too crazy.

Vinothec Compass: A Stroke of Food and Wine Genius in North Greenwich

Realising that one of the better meals served to me this year and the best wine list I’ve come across in London in quite a long while both happened to be on offer at a new golf range in North Greenwich really threw me for a loop. But hey, I’m apt to take a swing at virtually any possibility if there’s the promise of great food and drink. Accepting an invitation to what seemed like a long shot – an evening of “Terroir and Turf” at Vinotech Compass at Peninsular Golf Range – turned out to be an ace culinary experience that’s easy to recommend and one that I hope to repeat soon.

International Street Food Challenge: Orange Buffalo’s Wings and Blue Cheese Dip

The free event offered guests the chance to sample a variety of authentic and delicious dishes cooked by a variety of vendors from around the world. One of the highlights for me was getting to chat with Nick White, one of the founders of Orange Buffalo, and have a bite of his awesome and fiery Buffalo wings.

Donostia Social Club at Pop Brixton

Scaled back to clapboard basics with fierce focus on the menu, Donostia Social Club’s bar is a Spanish food lover’s dream come true (well, as long as such dreams are bound within the M25) … and a more than decent spot for a quick drink, light bite or full on Basque feast. Rather than a stone’s thrown from Brixton Station, if the bar were situated on the polar opposite end of the Victoria Line near my Walthamstow home, I’d be in there bending my elbows and wearing down the utensils all the time. Indeed, I tried to coax Chef Paul Belcher to come up my way for a reccie. I’m not holding my breath until he brings his bar north though; so, I guess I’ll just have to make do with commuting south now and again to get my pintxos fix.

Ninth Ward, New Orleans Style Bar in Clerkenwell

Ninth Ward is a New Orleans style restaurant and bar that opened several weeks back near Farringdon Station (there’s a more established sister restaurant in New York as well). It’s a good place to consider for your next Clerkenwell drinking session with a menu of bar snacks and American fixings to abate any appetite.

Very early in this relationship it became clear to me that they were top of the field and would provide their clients with thorough and quality service while ensuring media contacts like me were provided with appropriate and relevant materials for coverage.
