Peruvian delicacy – Deep fried guinea pig

October 25, 2012 6 comments

As gruesome as it sounds, it is actually very tasty.

The meat is pink and very soft.

This particular one was marinated with herbs so it has extra flavour, especially the skin.

Our tour guide said the best part is the head.

I tried it, not too bad at all.

Peruvians only eat this for celebrations but tourists can have it any time!

Everything London #37 – Medieval Banquet, St Katherine’s Dock

October 10, 2012 Leave a comment

Definitely not a place to take a first date. Especially when they don’t give you spoons for your soup, which tastes like it’s straight from the can. You don’t expect food to be good in a place like this and actually the bread was surprisingly up to standard. It’s good entertainment for a group event such as a corporate event where you don’t necessarily have to talk to everyone the whole night. Or as they are now advertising for Christmas dinners. The performers were pretty good, but not top class. You can go there for a birthday party only if you are really running out of ideas or taking your senior parents. But only if they like loud and rowdy atmosphere as it surely was in the underground chambers.

They had a piano as music acompliment to the performance so I went up and challenged the pianist that there were no pianos in the Medieval times but the harpsichord. The waitresses didn’t want to be there and still had the guts to pass around a tip bowl at the end of the night. We just chuck in a few silvers and left it on the table.

I much preferred the Medieval show I went to in Dallas Texas with jousting and really lovely horsemanship. But that’s the thing about London, you can have a variety of nights out. This particular night – it was just fun to dress up and be in a pub with a different theme!

Everything London #36 – Sticks n Sushi, Wimbledon

A pleasant surprise as soon as you walk into the restaurant as I love nicely decorated restaurants because you feel like a VIP. I was sold already. A friendly waitress took us to the table and offered us picture booklets which were menus. Without further ado, I kick off with a lovely cocktail called Geisha Girl in a classy glass – sweet.

It’s also hard to review fusion Japanese food, because it’s not cuisine you can find in the country I so love. But I can also appreciate the creativeness and presentation which is to be congratulated on. My eyes were caught on the squid salad and I was not disappointed with a nice blend dressing flavour. Their seaweed salad is also very authentic and nicely done. Sushi platters offer a good variety with fresh quality fish. Their wasabi is to be complimented, none of the wishy-washy stuff, this has a real decent kick to it. The small delicate deserts are the best way to finish off a nice meal – not too much but not too Japanese.

After finding out that it’s a Danish originated chain, it has stirred an interest to visit Denmark which surprisingly I have not visited yet.
