Yao Yao Cha | Boba & Baobing | Bubble Tea & Shaved Ice

Yao Yao Cha | Boba & Baobing | Bubble Tea & Shaved Ice

Yao Yao Cha means Shake Shake Tea in Chinese. The naming approach tickles me and certainly the little shop in London’s Seven Dials area has shaken up the local bubble tea market since it opened earlier this year.

Kanada-Ya Ramen comes to London

Kanada-Ya Ramen comes to London

I said a couple of years ago that 2012 was the year of ramen. That was prompted by the opening of four fabulous ramenya in London, each one selling a vastly more exciting (and generally, more authentic) offering than the Wagamama-style facsimile that was prevalent at the time. Since then, the enthusiasm for real ramen [Read More...]

Holy Smoked Mackerel, Batman!

Holy Smoked Mackerel, Batman!

Four years ago a course at Billingsgate Seafood Training School changed my life. If that seems like it might be an exaggeration, rest assured that it really isn’t because, in a roundabout kind of way, it lead to me finally making it to Japan, a country I’d long yearned to visit. That’s a story for [Read More...]

Monday Meet The Blogger | Neil Davey aka Dine Hard

Monday Meet The Blogger | Neil Davey aka Dine Hard

Neil often has me oohing with envy when he shares the details of his latest press trip. Even worse when he tweets photos of his borrowed Bentley by the Great Wall of China or the latest American road trip featuring lobster or real deal barbeque meat. In addition, Neil (and his wife Mrs Dine Hard) [Read More...]
