Port and Chocolate Matching at Churchill’s Port House

Churchills White Port Served cold as an aperitif

Mandarin Kitchen – Lobster Noodles Still Great

64-Mandarin Kitchen 095

Mandarin Kitchen is one of the handful of places that we used to frequent for a decent Chinese meal in the Bayswater area. When we were students, a lot of friends had flat in the area and we used to congregate at a long closed restaurant called Hung Toa where the Roast Duck was famous. This used to be like a clubhouse, as all the gang would show up there… [Read More]
