Puji Puji

10 Mar 2011

It has always been one of my greatest regrets, that I never spent much time at Oriental City, the former shopping centre and food court based in Colindale which closed in mid 2008. If I’d known of it’s existence and all the affordable, Oriental foodie delights it had to offer during my first year in London, it would have made my time then all the more enjoyable.

Out of the ashes, one of Oriental City’s former Malaysian cuisine stalls, Puji Puji reopened in the form of a restaurant in Islington. We visited on a Saturday night and the small, suburban eatery soon became vibrant as it filled up with animated patrons enthusiastically partaking in the Malaysian cuisine and the zero corkage fee BYO policy.

Summer Seasons Eatings!

23 Dec 2010

Although being in New Zealand for a summer Christmas tends to mean that there won’t be any chestnuts roasting on an open fire or Jack Frost nipping on our noses, it sure doesn’t mean we end up eating any less!

I’ve arrived just in time for my first Kiwi Christmas in 6 years and have been kept busy enjoying all the parties that go along with it.  It’s also great to be able to attend the birthday celebrations of friends and family that I’d normally miss at this time of year.

One such party was at Lone Star and goodness me the meals there are huge!  Man food overload.  I think I’ve mentioned before that I can’t look at brunch menus without ordering the Eggs Benedict?  Yeah, that same lack of self control also applies to ribs.  I have something of an obsession with ribs.  I loves ‘em!
