I apologise wholeheartedly if I fail to read your postings with enough conviction and frequency or at least take the trouble to rouse a few comments. I’ve decided to refrain from reading further recipes posted by great sites like The Blonde
As for the reviews of restaurants, unfortunately my attitude towards them is nearly that of an ignoramus. Truth of the matter is by reading the reviews of restaurants that I’ve yet to visit will no doubt influence the outcome of my own critique for the wrong reasons. However if I do eventually get round to reading your reviews of the places I’ve set foot upon, I then find correlating reviews fascinating.
More importantly I would like to thank you all for the following-
Taking the trouble to read my blog, hopefully regardless of its lack of dynamism and prose.
To be included in your blogroll despite my invisible one (and certainly no thanks to being de-listed) .
Making the odd comment or two.
FBs, happy eating and cheers.
A bit of waffle is important to maintain a level of eccentricity that’s sometimes associated with this blog. I suppose that the other reason is simply down to I can only write so much about a certain joint; anymore words than necessary would cause the review to be drummed up and over the top. Yoshino is one such place. Ever since Yoshino decamped or got shoved from the Japan Centre in Piccadilly to Soho, I’ve always had a sneaky impression that they’ve lost the plot and resorted to selling faux sushi to tourists and the uninitiateds. I was indeed wong (and still am by all accounts), this 'takeaway only' shop sells decent sushi at incredibly silly prices.
If some of you constantly treat yourself to a sushi lunch from either Pret, Marks, Wasabi (travesty), etc; do take the trouble and come here instead; the food here is superior and wallet friendly. Relish and enjoy.
