Another one bites the dust — El Racó Del Sikkim

Yesterday I noticed that El Racó Del Sikkim, somewhere I’ve revisted quite a few times, is no more. In its place is a generic-looking “barbecue” bar whose main selling point seems to be that the food comes on heated stone plates. I’ll check it out but it’s sad that we’ve lost one of the few… Read more »

La Yaya Amelia

One day in late January I headed out to try a new restaurant only to have second thoughts upon arriving at the place. The menu, and the food I could see through the window, looked bland and uninspiring. My friend Dan was running slightly late so we agreed to head in each other’s general direction… Read more »

Tumbleweeds

I know the blog’s been quiet of late. I appreciate the comments and concerned enquiries but don’t worry, it’ll be attended to soon. This isn’t the kind of writing that pays the bills so it has to drop down my list of priorities from time to time. I have been to a few restaurants of… Read more »

Adéu a Núvola Cafe

La Paradeta

The challenge of eating out with young kids is one that often results in a failure to eat well: this restaurant is no good because it’s too small for prams; that one doesn’t have highchairs. One by one the list of places where you want to eat is whittled down in a quest to find… Read more »

La Cova Fumada

Before I start, please allow me to apologise for the lack of recent posts. I’ve had lots of new followers and visitors to the blog recently (welcome!) but not many noteworthy meals to write about. Our new baby’s still being breastfed which means no babysitters which means very limited opportunities for gastronimising. I’ve had a… Read more »
