Polynesian Mahi Mahi with South Sea Dipping Sauce

June 3, 2016 at 4:40 amCategory:Cuisine and Food

Mahi Mahi is a fantastic, flavorful fish that is slightly fatty and firm. The flaky flesh is tender and succulent. Also known as Dorado or Dolphinfish (not the mammal, dolphin, as we know it), this beauty can be found in many parts of the world in warm water. The fish is tasty when simply baked, grilled or broiled. It can also […]

Restaurant Reviews Johnnie Foxes Pub Restaurant in Glencullen Ireland

June 2, 2016 at 2:40 pmCategory:Recipes

Johnnie Foxes is located in Glencullen, a small sleepy village in the southern suburbs of Dublin, perched high on the top of the Dublin Mountains. It makes great emphasis of the fact that it is the “highest pub in Ireland” but this is not strictly true, as there is a place on the Beara Peninsula […]

Review and Tasting Notes of Hop Back Summer Lightning

June 2, 2016 at 2:40 amCategory:Cuisine and Food

“Summer Lightning in your eyes, it keeps on dancing” No, this isn’t about throwing a pint of beer in someone’s face (though I’m sometimes tempted). It’s a line from a song that only an old ‘head’ would recognise or remember (although given the alleged effects of smoking too much weed, they probably wouldn’t remember). What? […]

Restaurant Reviews the Vujon Indian Restaurant Newcastle upon Tyne UK

June 2, 2016 at 12:40 amCategory:Recipes

The Vujon is widely regarded as the best Indian restaurant in Newcastle. It should be stressed that this is fine dining and not your typical “curry house” – Newcastle has plenty of those if that is what you want but the Vujon is several grades above. This is apparent as soon as you walk through […]

Restaurant Reviews Jimmys Killer Prawns Cape Town

Jimmy’s Killer Prawns – another well-known seafood franchise. Their specialty, is of course prawn and seafood dishes. They have also expanded their menu to include sushi and much to my girlfriend’s dislike, a hearty selection of “Buffalo-Bill” portioned meaty (red meat) dishes. We recently attended a birthday party at the Kloof Street franchise. Not everyone […]

Review and Tasting Noted Thwaites Lancaster Bomber

May 31, 2016 at 6:40 pmCategory:Recipes

My first thought walking into Wetherspoons on a Friday evening usually revolves around trying to decide which of the many beers on offer I’m going to have. My second thought is usually wondering why they have so many different ‘unavailable’ at any given time, thereby narrowing the choice considerably. My third thought, some time later […]

Restaurant Reviews the Kerala South Indian Restaurant London UK

May 31, 2016 at 4:40 pmCategory:Cuisine and Food

If you love Indian food, don’t be put off by the signs saying that the Kerala does a bargain lunchtime buffet. In my experience, these can be trays of unidentifiable slop and I steer clear of the place. However, the Kerala also offers a wide menu of southern Indian specialties – choose from Syrian Christian […]
