Port House

The Port House is one of those great finds that you just have to share.  On our way back one sunny summers evening from seeing a show called ‘The Roof’, me and Mr J stumbled upon The Port House.  If I’m being honest I probably would have continued walking right past it.  But we were hungry and it was packed full of people so we thought we would give it

Dine with Kyi, Burmese Street Kitchen

Looking for an authentic dining experience?  Why not try Dine with Kyi! A few weeks ago my friend Olivia invited me and Mr J to join her and a group of our friends to Dine with Kyi.  Whilst I have tried, tasted and made a few Street food items over the years Burmese Food was one I hadn’t discovered. Who is Kyi? Kyi or Thuzar kyi is a British Born

Herbal Tea Crazy!

So I’m a tea addict, but who isn’t really?  There is nothing like the taste of a good strong English tea, or a sweet milky Indian Chai tea to let the stress of the day ease away. My latest love for tea has been heightened by the mass variety of organic tea out there, all sourced from the highest quality organic ingredients.  Which for you tea lovers out there, that

Steam and Rye

Got the Sunday blues? Dreading Monday morning? Then do what I did and make Monday’s the new Thursday and meet with an old friend for a long overdue catch up and a few cocktails or a glass of wine. When my friend Sophie suggested meeting on a Monday night I was picturing a cafe Nero in the city and a cup of green tea, not a bar on a Monday

Juicing, Fad or future?

Juicing we’ve all had a go at some point in our lives whether its to fight the post Christmas bulge, give our body some healthy green nutrients post a summer of ‘festivals’ or just to use up all the left over fruit and vegetables that are about to go off.  The last option there referring to my mum – just don’t ask her what’s inside! My only excuse for not

Fox and Anchor

When Mr J suggested going to The Fox and Anchor for dinner with our friends I was slightly a bit concerned and had the image of an old 70’s style east end pub with great food and Dave the local perched by the corner of the bar (his spot since 1979).  I was surprisingly proved wrong! The Fox and Anchor is a great pub snuggled up a side road, a

Yalla Yalla Beirut Street Food

Picture the scene: It’s Thursday night and I know there is not food in my fridge!  Mr J is away in Dublin doing a speech, therefore no chance of sending him out to do the weekly food shop. The sensible thing here would be to go home via the nearest Supermarket and make something healthy, instead of going down the liquid meal route that can so easily happen with after

Great British Summer has arrived!

Now some of you may be starting the day slightly confused as your mobile phone says one time while the microwave states another.  No you are not still hungover from last night, Mrs J can confirm that you have just traded in one hour of your precious weekend for an extra hour of daylight! What better way to take advantage of the daylight than going on a long country walk
