Review: Cau, Blackheath

It’s now been over 2 years since I started blogging and campaigning for South American food – where has the time gone? It feels like yesterday that I was writing up (very amateur) recipes back in Guildford, where the only South American restaurant in the area for me to review was the vibrant and trendy…

Review: Sñr Ceviche

Pop-up restaurants have taken the capital by storm; eating at temporary, makeshift restaurants with a one-off set menu is in vogue. They usually only run for a month or two and book up fast.

However, earlier this week, I took a day off work for Christmas shopping but decided to treat myself to a breakfast outing. The Breakfast Club is a popular London chain of café-cum-restaurants, which…

Ceviche, Soho

I have a dream…a dream where South American food is craved by the British public and is firmly set within the British psyche. We’re taking our time, but the UK is finally starting to take an interest in the latest international cuisine to find itself higher up on the food agenda. There’s definitely still a long way…
