Lazybones… deliciously slow cooked pork in Farringdon

Last week I met my friend C for dinner at Lazybones, a little bar and restaurant newly opened in the heart of Farringdon. They offer a pretty interesting American inspired, slow and fast cooked, street food menu, excellent craft beer and delicious (and pretty stiff) cocktails. The interior décor is quite unusual, with faux graffiti on the walls, pop…

Ramen galore, late lunch at Tonkotsu (fab) and at Toku (bad)

A couple of weeks ago, on a miserable day exactly like today, I spent my morning trapped in back-to-back meetings in Fitzrovia.

Santa Maria, the real deal
