Bottomless Brunch. The weekend plan which has become THE thing to do with a Saturday/Sunday, so much so that even restaurants you wouldn’t expect to offer a brunch menu, like Shackfuyu has jumped on the bandwagon. Due a brunch catch up with Sandy, we decided to try Asia de Cuba, the pan Asian restaurant located inside St. Martin’s Lane hotel, where I went recently to try the new spring menu (well what can I say, I was converted into a fan – read that review here).¬† Seated at our reserved little table for two in the corner (perfect spot for a good gossip and giggle), we got settled for our two hour slot of eating and drinking until we burst (that’s pretty much the point…

One thing I love about my job is that I get to meet people for meetings over breakfast or lunch. In fact, it’s expected of you. What’s not good about that? As I always try to make it easier for the person I’m meeting to get back to office in time, it means I get to eat out in several different areas of the city, which gives so many more opportunities to try a new place. And as you all know, I love to try new food spots. I recently had a breakfast meeting with Rachel¬†in Kensington, near High Street Ken station – lovely area, beautiful buildings and huge stores. I proposed a few restaurants (all from my list of places to try), and we…
