We made a pilgrimage out to Haggerston one rainy Saturday afternoon with one thing on our minds, chicken. I’d read about this new place Chick n Sours on a few blogs and the photos of spicy chicken wings, monstrous burgers and pretty looking cocktails had definitely piqued my interest. Plus, the promise of free range, herb fed, locally sourced chicken on the menu was hard to look past. We arrived just as they were closing for the break between lunch and dinner. Our stomachs growling and unwilling to admit defeat we killed the time somehow until dinner. The cocktail we ordered was far too drinkable and was gone in a matter of minutes. We then wolfed down a plate of the Szechuan aubergine. When did an eggplant ever taste so good? That was followed by the Tenders and the dip of our choice – Ssam Jang relish. These were less amazing and we wished we hadn’t ordered them. The Bun was pretty impressive with just the right amount of spice. We also tried the dripping fries, which weren’t too special and a bit too much on top of all of the other fried food. Luckily we also had the good sense to order the pickled watermelon which was refreshing and delightfully spicy. The stars of the show were definitely the Szechuan aubergine and The Bun. The cocktails were also pretty wonderful. I was curious about the soft serve ice cream with wheat bix but we were far too full.

I’m always on the lookout for a new coffee shop where I can either read or spend some time with a friend chatting for a few hours in a friendly environment. The moments when you find that perfect spot are rare but I have begun to refine my London list and I have a few go to places now. Number 1 on my list is Angie’s little food shop in Turnham Green. Located on Chiswick high road just down from Sainsbury’s, Angie’s will immediately catch your eye with their baked treats readily displayed across the counter. The inside is really charming with a bright and friendly décor. The walls are decorated with ceramic bowls and plates which are also available to purchase. I always enjoy their playlist and it always seems to be appropriate to the type of atmosphere inside the café. I’ve been there when it’s pretty crowded on weekend mornings and also during the week when I’ve been the only one in there and the service is always great and friendly. The menu is fantastic with delicious options for breakfast and lunch. By far, the blueberry hot cakes are the best thing on the menu and they are served with a coffee marscapone cream and cinnamon sauce.

I enjoyed my experience at Rosa's. I booked in for a group of 10 people but there ended up being only 8 of us. We were seated in the downstairs section which was quite cozy and intimate at the time we arrived. However, when more groups began to arrive it became rather loud. The food was delicious and served promptly. It can be quite hard to find a decent Thai restaurant in the city, but Rosa's has spicy, rich flavours and an impressive menu.

My friend and I decided to do a bike tour of Paris two days after we had done a couple of free walking tours. The organisation was smooth and efficient and we were met by a friendly guide and taken up to the car-park of the train station where the bikes are kept. We were encouraged to test out the bikes and and adjust the handlebars and seats to the standards they advised. After a few rules and tips we set off. The tour guide would stop at various sights and show us pictures relevant to the landmark. We were given an hour to find some lunch and reconvene at the bikes. Some of the streets were difficult to pass through as they were packed with pedestrians and we had to disembark to walk the bikes through. All in all the tour was interesting but we went to sites we had been to on the walking tours and the information and background we were given on the walking tours was much better. However, it was nice to be on a bike and see Paris from a new height.

The Refinery see's hoards of local business men and women enjoying Friday long lunches and after work drinks. The venue is very spacious with tables to cater for large groups, as long as they have booked in advance. Based on this alone you would expect the service to cope with busy service hours, but my recent experience here showed just how lacking this business is in such a simple aspect of hospitality. My colleagues and I had booked a table for our lunch break. It took the waitress at least ten minutes to identify our presence and after waiting for several more minutes we got up and found our own menus. It took twice as long for the waitress to bring our drinks and even when she did, she had forgotten one of them. Out of our group of four, one person ordered a starter as a main and was served her meal before the rest of us so then had to endure watching us eat our lunches after she had already finished hers. My colleague had to get the attention of the waitress to point out to her that we had requested all of our meals come together and the waitress just strolled off as my colleague was mid sentence with no apology for the mix up or lateness at all. Truly deplorable service and such a shame for somewhere which could be a convenient and pleasant lunch spot for many businesses in the area, but after reading other reviews it seems that service standards aren't a priority for The Refinery.

Pho restaurant was recommended by a friend so a bunch of friends and I decided to check it out. I went online beforehand to see what other patrons had to say about their experience and I read a few negative reviews mostly regarding the service. But when I walked in the staff were obliging and helpful. I located my friends at the very back of the restaurant and squeezed into a seat at a small table that wasn't big enough to accommodate the number of people we were. We had at least two waiters ask us for our drink orders and we felt very tended to. Our drinks arrived promptly and the waiter gave suggestions for meal choices. Our meals were very nicely presented and arrived in good time and they were delicous. I ordered the Cà-ri which was a mildly spicy curry. Although the tofu was a little dry, the meal was very tasty. Our waiter was very funny and patient while we divided the bill. I will definitely be back again to try the other delicious looking dishes on the menu.
