Hanway Place houses the original Hakkasan in London.
Situated just off Oxford Street do not let the slightly dodgey surroundings put you off . When you enter this underground restaurant you will be whisked away to a totally different world.


The restaurtant serves modern Chinese
Cuisine and has a Michelin star. I have no idea what the following photos are but can testify that it was all delicious.




The atmosphere is very cool even though it is supposed to be an old style setting.

This place is not cheap but definitely worth a visit.

The Pot Belly Tullylish

by on Mar.22, 2012, under Champagne, Free Wi-Fi, Gluten Free, Irish Coffee, Parking/Valet, Roof Deck/Patio, Salmon, Steak, Wine

The Pot Belly is located between Banbridge and Gilford in Northern Ireland

A pot belly is not a fat person from Charlestown but a particular type of is located in the restaurant and it keeps the place very toasty.

The food was simple but really good.

This steak with the bushmills sauce was great and the cows were happy so that is great.

There was a gluten free menu and the salmon was very good.

Fervor Buenos Aires

by on Dec.29, 2011, under Beer, Buenos Aires, Champagne, City, Foods, Free Wi-Fi, Restaurants, Scallops, Steak, Swanky, Wine

Fervor is located in the heart of Recoleta behind the Alvear Palace.It is probably the most traditional restaurant that I have visited in Buenos Aires.Set out like a typical french bistro it is quite formal while not being stiff.










Christmas Eve is the big deal in Argentina .Most restaurants shut down and the ones that remain open lay on a fixed Christmas menu.








This is an expensive night to go out,similer to New Years Eve in the States.The menu here was around 130 US dollars per person.This included 5 courses and an open bar.I discovered a new sparkling wine which was very good.











The food was plain but plentiful and very tasty.I especially liked the country style pate.







Probably not a place that I would go to on a normal night but can thoroughly recommend Christmas Eve.

Aldos Buenos Aires

by on Dec.29, 2011, under Beer, Buenos Aires, Champagne, Free Wi-Fi, Happening, Music, Steak, Wine, Wine/Liquor Store

The Moreno Hotel in San Telmo houses this new restaurant and vinoteca. Not as visually stunning as some of the restaurants in Buenos Aires more of Baltezaar meets Vinny Ts.

The bar area is very nice , not pretensious at all.

The food is simple, well priced and very good.

The beef tenderloin wrapped in bacon with French fries was delicious .

The local market menu is small but covers all the basics like this sea bass.

< As this doubles up as a wine store buying by the bottle is actually quite cheap and of course the range is very comprehensive. Buying by the glass is very limited and not cost effective so I tried a beer. My first from Chile. 20111228-220114.jpg
Sound system here was excellent. Soundtrack was good and very jazzy.

Tegui Buenos Aires

by on Dec.28, 2011, under Buenos Aires, Champagne, Free Wi-Fi, Happening, Restaurants, Roof Deck/Patio, Steak, Swanky, Tartar, Wine

Any restaurant where you have to ring the door bell to get in must have something going for it.










Very like its sister restauant,Casa Cruz,Tegui is very glam inside.










The food is excellent.My veal tartar was great.One of the best I have ever eaten.











I almost forgot.The bread was the best I had ever eaten.(that is if you like nutty bread)











Which gets me to the main course.I had the steak which was very good.One thing that is interesting here is that the chef usually does steak medium.This was rare and wonderful.Always state how you want your food cooked as I noticed that the waiter will not always ask.








The wine list was very comprehensive and if you can grab a drink in the outside garden before you leave.Definately gets 2 thumbs up from me.

Olsen Buenos Aires

by on Dec.24, 2011, under Buenos Aires, Champagne, Free Wi-Fi, Happening, Roof Deck/Patio, Salmon, Steak, Wine

Olsen is a sister restaurant to Casa Cruz and Tegui. From it’s name you can guess it has a Swedish feel. Apart from being difficult to get to I really did not find anything Swedish about the place.
This was my second visit and I hoped I would enjoy it more than the first. Things did not get off to a good start. We only accept Visa was the first thing I was told after making the reservation. I did explain that people who use Amex traditionally spend more dosh but this fell on deaf ears.
The restaurant is located in a more remote part of Palermo Soho but when you get there the garden entrance is stunning.


Palermo was an area of Buenos Aires that housed many car shops. Once again this restaurant seems to have used this type of venue to produce a stunning room. It is a pity they did not invest in some stunning furniture as the stuff they have looked as if it came from a car boot sale of old diners stuff. The acoustics are pretty bad as well but to fix that would take a real hefty investment.

The food was good but nothing to write home about and quite expensive for Buenos Aires

I personally will not be rushing back but if you want to yearn for that little bit of Sweden by sitting in a really cool outside patio while drinking Absolut vodka then this may be the place for you

Casa Cruz Buenos Aires

by on Dec.18, 2011, under Buenos Aires, Champagne, Free Wi-Fi, Happening, Music, Octopus, Steak, Swanky, Tartar, Wine

Casa Cruz is a very upscale restaurant on the outer fringes of the main shopping and dining area of Palermo Soho

Inside the feeling is expensive but very cool . You enter into a small bar area where you are seated and expected to have a drink. It seems that the restaurant want you to enjoy the plush surroundings as we had to wait 20 minutes for our table even though the place was not that busy . The sound-track was great so this made the wait well worthwhile .

Once again the restaurant features a large open space with a huge wall of wine at the far end. The place feels as if you should dress up but the staff uniform is a vest, shirt, tie, jeans and sneakers. Very casual chic.
The food was simple,good and expensive by Buenos Aires standards.The veal tartar was incredible. It was as good as anything I have ever eaten

So definitely somewhere to visit if you want to impress the “mrs”.

Sucre Buenos Aires

by on Dec.17, 2011, under Bellini, Buenos Aires, Free Wi-Fi, Happening, Octopus, Osso Bucco, Roof Deck/Patio, Steak, Swordfish, Wine

Sucre was the second restaurant I visited in Buenos Aires and it really seems to have maintained it’s popularity. The space is very large and open with minimalist decoration and soft lighting. It gets very noisy so if you want to listen to the great soundtrack get there early (before 10). The kitchen opens into the restaurant so if possible get a table overlooking this. The bar is very well stocked and is located underneath a suspended metal walkway that leads to the restrooms (this definitely brings out the inner cage dancer of some patrons).


The food is simple but excellent. The swordfish and octopus were as good as I have had anywhere.

The restaurant is a little of the beaten track and is quite pricey by Argentinian standards but once again well worth a visit.
