For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you will know I’m a little bit obsessed with sushi. It’s the one type of food that I don’t think I ever could or would get board of. So when I discovered this little place called sushi café in Battersea, I knew I would quickly become a regular, and I’ve been singing its praises ever since.
Until I started my new job, my old office was based on Gloucester road. A lovely little area just round the corner from South Kensington. It has lots of lovely hotels, some BEAUTIFUL houses but not a tone of great places to eat. Burger King and KFC are the first things that greet you as you come out of the tube for goodness sake! So when I saw that they were opening a new Comptoir Libanais on the same road as said Burger King, I was ecstatic! And even more so when they asked me to come down for dinner and try it out.
I love Mayfair. As an area I think there’s just something about it that’s so sophisticated. The designer stores, the beautiful Green Park opposite and of course, the selection of amazing restaurants.
The week before last I had the opportunity to try one of those restaurants with work, the recently revamped May Fair Kitchen.
Ed and I have been to a surprisingly high number of crazy golf/mini golf courses since we have been together. Its one of those date night activities that’s always a little bit different and always brings out our competitive sides. I occasionally cheat, and we always have a “practice” shot if we start off badly, but it’s always great fun. So when we saw Junk Yard Golf Club LDN being advertised all over Facebook we were very keen to give it a go.
Growing up I think it’s safe to say I spent pretty much all of my teenage years in Kingston, be it shopping trips in my early teens, to very messy nights out at all the clubs while at uni and working all of my retail career there. I know it well and am very fond of it as an area. So when i was contacted about coming to an event down by the river, I simply couldn’t say no, even if i had landed from Amsterdam that very morning!
Anyone that remembers Kingston a couple of years back will know Riverside area, just over Kingston bridge, as being a bit of a no man’s land. A handful of nice restaurants towards the top and a couple of old man’s pubs near TKMaxx end. A complete waste of a beautiful spot if you ask me. However, it has now been given the most beautiful face lift!
