Steak reblochon. Gooey cheese and homemade red onion chutney. Again, not revolutionary but tasty.

Steak Louisana… Although not the most revolutionary burger I’ve had in London, I almost forgot how good it is to have peanut butter on a medium rare patty. It does annoy me slightly when you have to pay extra for chips as a side…

Mmm. Salted yolk goodness.

Quattro formaggi stone baked pizza. Nice large lumps of cheese. Again, not half bad.

The Bite | £££££ | ★★★☆☆ | 533 Kingsland Road, Dalston, E8 4AR
Sun marinara stone baked pizza with sundried tomatoes, oregano, garlic etc. Not half bad. The chili oil could have done with a bit (or a lot more) kick.

Dirty Burger  | £££££ | ★★★★☆ | 13 Bethnal Green Road, Shoreditch, E1 6LA
'The Dirty Bacon', deliciously dirty burger, copious amounts of cheese and the thickest, fattiest slice of bacon. Perfect if you're in the mood for something messy and…well, dirty.

Bamiya chalow (sautéed okra and lamb). The lamb was so tender and that sauce was perfectly spiced. BYO too. Good stuff.

Mixed nut Chinese mooncake. Yummers.

I thought spending time with the people I love most (and eating shed loads) was a present enough for me. People are too kind. And I’m far too spoilt!Can’t wait to open the chorizo iberico de bellota… :o

Milk & Honey | £££££ | ★★★★☆ | 61 Poland St, London W1F 7NU
Florodora: gin, raspberries, lime, ginger and soda. The cocktails here are rather good.

A quiet, easy atmosphere (albeit a bit dark) with a glass of Malbec to help ease the pain of returning from Spain.

The Free From Bakehouse | £££££ | ★★★★☆ | Whole Foods, 20 Glasshouse St, London W1B 5AR
Macaroon birthday treats. The chocolate ones in particular were amazing!

And people wonder why I pack so lightly. Need to save room for goodies on the way back!

Bear in mind I took these photos halfway through eating this lomo. The fattiest, juiciest, bloodiest, most tender and beautiful thing. Ever. Sorry Hawksmoor/Garufa/Gaucho/Everywhere else.
