London Malmaison . The Best Sunday Lunch


For around 20£ one can indulge in maybe the best sunday lunch or brunch anywhere. A three course meal in London for 20£ is not so common, but of this quality it is quite exceptional.

A Starter of Mixed foods

The starters represent easily a meal in themselves, with various salads, cuts of meat and fish, bread, cheeses and samosas. The main courses range from typical roast meats to smoked fishcakes and the desserts include Sticky Toffee Pudding amongst other delectables.

Bread And Butter


Just occasionally one gets lucky with the light. There is nothing special about this photo, no planning and no manipulation. A simple truth of always carry your camera with you. Enjoy.

Waffle Jacks Sunday Lunch


In Merton there is an excellent Waffle restaurant called Waffle Jacks. The range of likeable food extends from all sorts of burgers, nachos and of course waffles,accompanied by various milkshakes. The food is superb. I can recommend a waffle with golden syrup and ice cream. Now you can have a quarter, half or whole waffle and each quarter is blessed with its own scoop of ice cream. So it is a dangerous if not insulin toxic affair to order a whole waffle with ice cream ( as one of your two selected toppings) as that equates without any mathmatical genius to four scoops.

Merton Graffiti

Having eaten  this feast, which today was a burger and half a waffle, a little stroll down the road takes you to a small alleyway in Merton where the graffiti is superb, graffiti art some call it, I call it decorative.

An eclectic mixture of food and drink photos from around Europe. Nothing special as they have all been taken with the I Phone which is not the best camera at all. But hopefully enough to make you hungry and thirsty.

Beirut Restaurant Auckland


A new Lebanese restuarant in the heart of Auckland. Weather permitting one can sit inside on some elegant chairs or outside on the pavement, where the views are not idyllic but some warmth does pervade in the summer months.

The menu is small and generally it is best to select maybe 5-6 dishes between two people. The food is not however typically Lebanese at all. So those expecting skewers of meat and chicken will be dissapointed. A good mixture would be some breads like the Persian flatbread or Afghan bread, made with black courgette hummus and poppy seed. Combined with a salad such as Fattoush or maybe Bubba (burnt aubergine,  sujak, toasted sesame and black cabbage).

Pehrpas the most visual dish is the Fattoush with amazing colours and textures . Looks almost like food art.  The portions are also not huge so those with an american accent might be dissapointed.

Lebanese Salad in Auckland Fattoush Photographs


Does anyone recognise what type of salad this is? It was eaten in an excellent Lebanese restaurant in Auckland called Beirut. It was called Fattoush. The food was excellent and was best eaten as a number of small dishes to be shared.

Fattoush traditionally is different to this version and is described as containing watermelon, beetroot, cucumber, parsley and orange blossom.

Fattoush

The menu contains a mixture of excellent other items. However not all versions of Fattoush are the same it seems. If we go to other websites we it described very differently

Fattoush is a Lebanese salad made with vegetables and crispy toasted flatbread, which soaks up the dressing beautifully. It’s a simple recipe, packed with freshness and flavour – serve this salad as a side to grilled meats.after midday —after midday —
