  • Po Cha – My secret Korean fix

    Image by Charl Asuit Whenever my partner and I crave something Korean or capping our shopping experience of electronics, we always go to Po Cha. It’s a small and compact place near Tottenham Court tube station, which makes the experience more intimate. Our starter is always the Korean pancake – either vegetable and shrimp – with extra helpings of the dipping sauce. When it comes to mains, everything on the menu is good but somehow he always tends to get the yummier one. Somebody else’s food always looks better than yours, as some people say. The service here is fairly…

Relieved to say it went better than expected and managed to get the new book off the ground.

  • The Wallace Collection – High art and heavy armour

    Image by Peter Hoffer Situated just minutes from the hectic shopping hordes of Oxford Street, the serene atmosphere of the Wallace Collection in Hertford House offers a gentle breather from the overstimulation of last-minute sales.  The art collection itself covers such a wide range that most visitors will find something to please them. Art from Turner, Canaletto, Rubens and Van Dyck will capture the interests of fans of paintings, while the large collections of porcelain will entertain ceramics connoisseurs.  Although the art pieces are a joy to behold, I think it’s the rooms…
  • Cybercandy – Global Sugar Rush

    10 Dec 2014 | 6:36 am
    Image by Peter Hoffer For many expats, moving to London means having to give up things close to their hearts – dear friends, favourite TV shows, and even cherished candy and sweets. While Cybercandy cannot help you become reunited with your mates from home or get you DVDs of your favourite TV shows back in your homeland, it can reunite you with chocolate and soda from your childhood. Browsing Cybercandy is like exploring the United Nations of sweets. On one shelf you may see American candy bars (super-sized of course) sitting next to Swedish licorice. In another section you might find…
  • Kyoto Garden – A taste of Japanese tranquility

    Peter Hoffer
    10 Dec 2014 | 6:36 am
    Image by Peter Hoffer Despite its relatively small size compared to the more famous Hyde Park or Richmond Park, the area of Holland Park boasts many draws, including a playing field for pick-up games of football or cricket, an ecology centre, rugged woods for brisk jogs, and a hostel. The park even hosts opera performances in the summer! My favourite part of the park is the peaceful Kyoto Garden, which is like a tiny pocket of Japan inside an English setting. When I first moved to London, my apartment was only minutes away. I would often spend time here to get away from the cramped space of…
  • London Chess Centre – Pawn Shop

    Image by Peter Hoffer Chess is a game that demands extreme patience, requires sharp foresight and commands cunning strategy. Sadly I have very few of these traits which makes me a poor chess player indeed. However this does not stop me from browsing the London Chess Centre on Baker Street (a street known for another crafty thinker, Sherlock Holmes). This charming chess shop offers chess sets for every budget – from travel sized to grand budget-busting sets. There are also plenty of books, magazines, videos and computer study guides to help budding chess wizards improve their skills. For…

  • New book finally here – New York to Alaska

    admin

    I’ve been quiet on here for a long while, mainly because I’ve been working to pay off debts from the first trip and also because I’ve been busy over what is now almost the last 2 years trying to finish the second book; and finally, it’s ready and has just gone to print. It’s titled Running Towards the Light (Postcards from Alaska) and is about my journey on the same old Honda CT110 from New York to Alaska. It was a journey of around 6000 miles, lasting almost 3 months in total, travelling through Detroit, Chicago, along Route 66, over the Rockies, though Monument…

    Kinda didn’t make much fuss of it but on the same bike as I originally rode from Sydney to London on, I’ve just completed my trans-world adventure by reaching Alaska. It was a good trip, cold, a turbulent at times, but we made it. More pictures to follow.

    Motorcycle News is very kindly and very generously selling copies of my book, the Long Ride Home, priced at £9.99 including postage and packing. Despite the changes in the cover, it’s the same book about the same trip from Sydney to London as the other variations that have been shown over the past few months. It’s just taken me a while to nail it down and go ahead with batch printing. So if anyone would like a copy please click here and do me the kind honour of letting me know how you get on with it once it’s arrived… For people outside of the UK, please go here for a…

    London Food Blog post by Beverley Reinemann Here at Eating London we love nothing more than spending time in our wonderful capital city but offer us a day trip to one of the castles near London and we’ll jump at the chance, not least because England has some of the most beautiful castles in the world, and they’re well worth hopping on a train out of London for. Here’s our pick of the best! Hever Castle was once the home of Anne Bolelyn and is just an hour from London Hever Castle Just over an hour on the train from London, Hever Castle is a double-moated castle that was once the home of…
  • Supper Clubs – Dining in the Underbelly of London

    London Food Blog post by Ocean Belcher Gone are the days where dining out was simple. Your choices were limited – eat out, be waited on, guzzle expensive drinks, and then pay; or go to your dinner parties, bring a bottle of wine, and make polite conversations about the weather. But then there came supper clubs – a new horizon for the dining enthusiast. Often well hidden, raved about and widely rumoured, supper clubs embody the art and culture of dining in intimate venues. Sometimes they’re in pop-up locations across a city and sometimes, quite often, they’re in the chef’s own…

  • Eat Your Heart Out in Brixton

    London Food Blog post by Ocean Belcher As a self-confessed foodie, cheeseaholic, and vino fiend, Brixton offers a wealth of eating-out opportunities for the avid culinary explorer. Located South of London, Brixton is easily accessible on the Victoria line and a great alternative dinner spot to the usual haunts in Shoreditch or Soho. As a local resident in Brixton I have had time to explore the finer side of its dining treasures and made it my mission to sample each and every location at least once. It’s a cultural culinary hub with a vast range of ethnic foods from Caribbean to Thai and you…
  • Where to find the best fish and chips in London

    Beverley Reinemann
    13 Nov 2014 | 5:57 am
    London Food Blog post by Beverley Reinemann If there’s one dish us Brits love (apart from a good Sunday roast, obviously) it’s fish and chips. Ask a Brit what they can remember of family holidays by the seaside and we’ll bet that at least a few of them get all nostalgic about eating salt and vinegar covered fish and chips out of greaseproof with a wooden fork. It’s got to be right though: crispy batter, moist fish, thick cut chips, and the big helping of mushy peas on the side. Although, pop into some households on a Friday night for Fish Friday and you’ll also find a slice of white…
