MR MIYAGI

Another year older, another year... I’m not sure how I should end that sentence, because I certainly don’t feel very different from when I was 23, though I’m sure plenty of things have changed in the interim year.

Ok, so, get this: I had booked a long-overdue dentist appointment with my regular, preparing for an arduous and expensive afternoon of teeth cleaning and scraping.

Food always, always wins out however, which I how I found myself spending 20 minutes trawling the streets for parking, just so I could eat at Borsch, Vodka, and Tears. ‘It’s [...]

SAIGON SALLY

What do you do when you have a boyfriend who doesn’t like coriander? You get a new boyfriend. Well not quite, but K has always been BackupBF for all those meals where Chris would’ve moaned incessantly about the amount of herbs in the food.
