Camden farmer’s market

Here we have Norfolk’s ambassador to Camden presenting his wares at Camden farmer’s market. Ever since I’ve been in Camden I’ve wondered, and asked, often why Camden doesn’t have a farmer’s market. If I get the urge, I tend to wander up to Parliament Hill Fields on a Saturday morning. Well, now it does on […]


Broadway Market photowalk

One excellent reason for heading out to the badlands of London Fields is to visit Laura’s lovely new café “Coffee is my cup of tea”. Nestled in a railway arch next to the station, Laura and her partner have already got a great place going. It’s organic and there’s a lovely selection of cakes including […]


Camden Lock Market Food

We’re lucky enough to live right by Camden Lock market and its delights, sometimes even venturing for foods on tourist days. This Easter weekend was supposed to have a special “breakfast” theme but as far as I could tell, it was the same wide variety of foods on offer inlcuding, but not limited to: curry, […]


Chthonic, Wolverhampton

Yesterday can only be described as a clusterfuck. Hearsay about things between bands that turned out fine when checking with the relevant authorities, to having Ennio Morricone’s finest “For a few Dollars More” theme nearly used as our intro, through to losing the keys to the tour bus. Still, we made it and a relatively […]


The Chin Chin Laboratorists: liquid Nitrogen ice cream

This opened up while I was away and a chilly Friday afternoon seemed to be the ideal time to sample it. If you come here to Camden Lock at the weekend be prepared for a wait as the queue is usually right out the door and down the cobbles. The gimmick is that for £4 […]


Primrose Hill Greengrocer

Is it a sign of the times that it takes a posh area of London to sustain a “proper” greengrocer, whereas in an area like Camden where I’d expect poor people to load up on spuds from a sack is well-served by the usual Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Lidl. That said, normal people probably couldn’t afford […]


Taiwanese food

I may rag on Taiwan for many reasons but food isn’t one of them. Just look at this little spread and click through to flickr for the annotations. So good.

Shi-Da purveyors of deep-fried goodness

This is a paradoxical country: everyone eats hugely and widely, yet on the whole, people remain resolutely skinny. Which I think says much about the Western diet. This stall in Sh-Da night market is our occasional stop-off for cauliflower, mushroom, tofu and chewy fishy thing, lighty battered, deep fried then powdered with salty pepper and […]


Yilan and Hualien road trip

We finally did it: rented a car and hit the East coast. A 750km round trip over 5 days took us first to Yilan then to Hualien. We ate lots of fish straight out of the pacific, saw aboriginal art, stayed in some lovely B&B’s, saw stunning landscapes, white water rafted and generally lounged around. […]
