The Butcher’s Den Bloggers Tasting By | September 7, 2013 bdmt-011

Last week we had the pleasure of being invited to a private tasting event of the new menu at The Butcher’s Den. I’ve been to the Butcher’s Den before and liked it a lot although the service was a bit clunky since they were in their soft opening phase still. Now that they are operating full time I expected the service to be top notch and indeed it was. Read more »

It started snowing early this year in the UK. There is nothing better in this snow than to stroll in a German style Xmas Market in the snow. It’s just the perfect time! We took the train to Birmingham to visit their Frankfurt Xmas Market and by the time we got there it was snowing lightly and bitterly cold of course but it was amazing! Especially while eating everything we can buy and eat there :p … If you are even in London during December you must visit Birmingham for their Xmas market… it’s well worth the trip!  Read more »

I do not eat packaged potatoe chips. I haven’t eaten any in years simply because i loathe the taste and feel against my fingers -and the smell- There is only one exception: Hula Hoops! I simply cannot resist the salted. I can never board the plane back home without getting my self several packets of Hula Hoops to stash for Q8 and one packet to eat on the plane before the plane takes off… that’s my travel to Q8 back from the UK ritual. So the next time you see a sad girl boarding a BA plane to Kuwait and eating a packet of Hula Hoops… that would be me!

Don’t you like Hula Hoops? What is your favourite potato chips brand on earth?
