Loews Hotel Vogue, Montreal

Loews Hotel Vogue, Montreal

We love Montreal any time of the year, but to us there is something extra special about being there in the grip of midwinter. If the storms blow in you can dive in to the amazing underground network of shopping malls, or the big department stores like Simons, or the grand and […]

Indigo at One Aldwych, London

Indigo at One Aldwych, London

London is our favourite place in the world for restaurants. On the one hand it is always a joy to revisit some of those establishments that seem to have been around forever – places like Rules, J Sheekey or The Ivy – where you are always assured of top quality service and an excellent […]

E Pellicci, Bethnal Green, London

E Pellicci, Bethnal Green, London

As Working Title’s film, Legend, opens this week across the UK, it seems fitting that we shine the spotlight on an East End legend of another kind. E Pellicci is a Grade II listed ‘greasy spoon’ on Bethnal Green Road, but everyone who knows it, knows that it is much […]

Bia Bistrot, Edinburgh

Bia Bistrot, Edinburgh

Strangely the most annoying things about real French bistros can also be the most appealing. Slightly uncomfortable chairs sit around tables that are too close together, lights are way too bright, the decibel level makes it hard to converse and there is a decor that, lets just say, is not […]

True Blue Cuisine – Singapore

True Blue Cuisine – Singapore

It is not often that restaurant catering involves cyanide – hydrogen cyanide to be precise – the very same substance of course carried by James Bond in his emergency suicide pill. In this particular case it fortunately involves its careful removal during the production of one of the region’s most famous dishes, Ayam Buak […]

Table by Rang Mahal at Naumi, Singapore

There are few better places in the world than Singapore for a full-on shopping experience: designer shops galore, discount fashions, bustling oriental bazaars and malls stuffed with the latest in technology. Even the airport is a great venue to pick out some great buys. The quality and variety of the […]

Rang Mahal Restaurant – Singapore

Rang Mahal Restaurant – Singapore

It does not take long for any visitor to the city state of Singapore to realise that the residents are in semi-permanent crisis about their identity. International, multi-cultural and multi-lingual it is a modern business-oriented city where there is a large European as well as an Australian and American contingent who join its mixed-race ‘Peranakan’ inhabitants. Largely […]

The Village Pub at Barnsley

The Village Pub at Barnsley

I should first of all quickly explain that this is neither in the industrial Yorkshire town of Barnsley nor is it what most people would recognise as your average village pub. This Barnsley is a delightful Cotswold stone hamlet in Gloucestershire and this particular ‘local’ is best thought of as […]

At the Chapel – Bruton, Somerset

This summer, the 17-century Durslade Farm – along with its accompanying 200 acres – will be transformed into a futuristic […]

Citron at Viceroy Palm Springs

Citron at Viceroy Palm Springs

Citron at Viceroy Palm Springs is a proper destination restaurant. Whether or not you opt to stay at the equally fabulous Viceroy hotel (review here), it’s definitely worth a trip downtown to dine in the zesty lemon coloured indoor restaurant, or take advantage of a balmy evening and dine poolside; […]
