A Sandwich a Day Sydney Oland Post a comment

At the end of Brick Lane just beyond the Indian markets and restaurants you will find Beigel Bake, a 24-hour bakery that is known for Jewish style bagels as well as apple strudel and rye bread. The simple sandwich that puts this shop on the map is salt beef on a beigel. Salty, tender beef piled high on a perfectly cooked fresh bagel with smear of mustard. Hearty, filling and just what you need after a few too many pints. More

Cheap Eats Around Leicester Square, London

Lizzie Mabbott 10 comments

Being one of the busiest tube stations and main tourist attractions in London means that the restaurant space around Leicester Square is, inevitably, snapped up by big rich chains with cash available to them. Two Aberdeen Angus Steakhouses flank the Square, with Strada, Garfunkels, McDonald's and KFC by their sides. For something decent to eat and so you don't feel like you've been wheeled in and churned out, you need to look a little harder. Here are our top five picks. More

The Crisper Whisperer: What I Learned from a Raw Foods Masterclass

Crisper Whisperer Carolyn Cope 36 comments

The definition varies from person to person, but in general a raw foods diet consists of whole vegan foods that have not been heated over 115°F. Raw enthusiasts prefer these foods because their natural enzymes, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals have not been altered by cooking. I found myself allocating an entire weekend to the Raw Foods Masterclass at Saf Restaurant in London. Saf is often named among the best vegetarian restaurants in London, with a totally vegan menu and many raw options. More

Serious Entertaining: London Particular

Serious Entertaining Carrie Vasios Mullins 6 comments

A London particular was the heavy blanket of Industrial revolution smog that piped out of London's chimneys, met with the natural mist from the Thames, which made it damn near impossible to see or breathe. By all accounts that fog was thick. As thick as pea soup, in fact. London fogs became known as pea soupers and, in time, ham and pea soup became known as London Particular. This menu is based around that pea soup, with a few other recipes you might have if you were sitting in a London pub one autumn night, patiently waiting for the fog to lift. More

A Sandwich A Day: Duck Confit from Le Marché du Quartier at Borough Market, London

A Sandwich a Day Kerry Saretsky 2 comments

I was at Borough Market, walking around after I'd had my requisite chorizo sandwich at Brindisa, when I walked by a huge, steaming paella pot vat of shredded duck. When you see that much duck confit in one place, you've got to talk to someone about it, figure out what's going on, and decide how you can eat it immediately. Fullness should not be prohibitive.
