Hermen, Palma de Mallorca

Hermen, Palma de Mallorca – the main part and bar of the Hermen restaurant overlooks onto the street. With huge glass panes, the place is light, inviting and interesting place to watch the busy street and traffic go by. Even with the buzz, the restaurant inside remains its cool...


Malaysia Kopi Tiam, Charing Cross (CLOSED)

When I posted this review, I am surprised to find that this restaurant has now closed and if you want roti canai in London, visit ROTI KING in 40 Doric Way, NW1 Euston. Malaysia Kopi Tiam, Charing Cross – the windowed front of the restaurant looks like a jumble...


Sa Travessa, Inca

Sa Travessa, Inca – is an old cellar place. The restaurant has two entrances. The inside dining room was kept very cool but it actually felt that it was more of a dampness in the air than the cool weather affecting the restaurant. Dining hall is a long rectangular...


Tapa Negra, Palma

Tapa Negra, Palma de Mallorca – Our rule of thumb is not to go to restaurants by the seafront. Not only we would be expected to pay a premium but the food is not usually good. Therefore when Tapa Negra came up on Google just off the seafront, we...


Corner Room, Bethnal Green

Corner Room, Bethnal Green – room is quite small. I am amazed at the number of people that Corner Room can seat without the feeling of being too crowded. Tables were a little small and close together but for the style of food served there was enough room. the...

Bar Mercat, Soller

Bar Mercat, Soller – For the last four weeks, my excitement of being back in London has made time flew by without realising that I have been ignoring write ups on Mallorca. It took me awhile to find the best ‘tortilla’ (potato omelette) in Soller; ok, perhaps, six years...


Goat’s Cheese, Potatoes and Thyme

Just in case you are wondering what happened to the rest of quiches on my list, well here is one of them and I’m pretty confident that the last one will be done soon as well. I have left the goat’s cheese quiches to the last because I found...
