This is a tempura tuna roll. It was quite something. A make roll fried in tempura. Even though the main attraction at Roca is their amazing grill the sushi is delectable and different.

Seaweed Salad and Miso Soup. Beautiful delicate Japanese. Only thing that let it down was the jazz music, a very strange choice in such a wonderful traditional restaurant.

Le Coq Rico in Paris is a wonderful treat. I have never seen chickens handled with such love and passion. The secret of the cooking is they boil the chicken first to make it tender before they are cooked in a rotisserie . Please do not go if you do not eat chicken its all they serve.

This is a chocolate cake i made for saskias birthday. Its a Jamie Oliver recipe and it never fails to impress. It has raspberries and cream in the middle and a wonderful icing glaze and its dead easy to make.
This tiny restaurant is one of my favourite places to eat. The food is so good that i actually have afghan kitchen cravings at least twice a month. There are only a handful of dishes to choose from and the menu never changes but thats the best thing about it."It it works why fix it". You may have to wait but its so worth it.

When in Spitalfields with my foody friend Jason we popped into Franze and Evans for our afternoon sugar fix. The cakes were quite something. These are lemon yoghurt cakes.

I have never understood why there are about 10 Maroush Lebanese restaurants in Edgware Road. They all have different environments so I suppose you take your pick depending what mood you are in. The food is excellent in each of them and because they are always busy you know the ingredients are always fresh.
Go take your pick.
