Dining in London & Munich Town
I am such a lucky boy to have the occasional wee bit of travel in my job. Despite the economy flight. Hey, I still get to visit some amazing places. Having just had a week overseas in London and Munich, I thought it would be a good idea to show off some of the absolutely amazing food I just threw down my neck. And, amazing is the right word. Have a look at Dining in London & Munich Town.
Well hello there Mr Ramsay. Here is Union Street Cafe, Southwark. Absolutely brilliant place. Only last week I was in Bread Street Kitchen in Singapore and today I was so very fortunate to be in London at another of Gordon’s. See what I mean about being lucky!!!
So very lucky to be taken by my fantastic work colleagues to this wonderful place. Here is Union Street Cafe, by Mr Ramsay. I would say 100% to book this as it was rammed and we were very very lucky to be granted a table. So so happy that we were though. What a cracking place this is, and the food was just a tad off-the-charts good. Loved it.
Ping them here – don’t get all disappointed!!!

Telstra crew all looking business-like and important and all that!
Here’s my choice. I had to have it. Mr David Knibbs has me on this Porchetta journey now since his BBQ. This is Gordon’s Porchetta, roasted pork belly, watercress, and pecorino. Oh yes. This was an absolute cracker!!! Beauty!!!
Did I mess up? Should I have had this dish? How good does this look? Mr. Lord has this bad boy and it looked amazing when it rocked up. This is Arrosto, roast beef, Cornish potato, salsa verde, and pecorino. BOOM. Just a stunning dish!!!
OK OK you know I don’t like fish, but when it comes to food how can I not? Check this bad boy out. Looks incredible. This is Orata, sea bream, Scottish girolles, figs, ricotta mustia, and truffle.
These little buggers were like two or three-time fried spuds but caked in breadcrumbs. I think they were called sanded potatoes or something. Incredible. So flipping crunchy. Just awesome pots – wow!!!
Change of country now. 1st time for me to be in Munich, Germany. Let’s leverage the local knowledge of where to go from our mates Boris and Udo. We end up at this amazing joint near one of the most huge of churches I have ever seen. It’s a stunning sunny day in Germany, it’s packed. Let’s follow tradition and have a scoop or three too for lunch. Loving Munich.
Clearly, there is no meat shortage in Munich. WOW, check it out. This is mental. Veggie’s stay away from Munich, you surely would have a nasty time. This is chicken, pork belly, potato dumplings, schnitzel, meatballs, sausages, gravy, and so on all served in a HUGE paella dish. This is carnivore heaven – and believe me, this was intense. Beautiful food. Just beautiful. So so good!!!
When in Rome! Have to do as the locals do of course. Moi with Boris, James and Zaven. What could possibly go wrong? Some of the very best colleagues to have a road trip with. TOP boys!!!
Back to London town and the incredibly beautiful St Pancras Station and The Booking Office and Bar. A meeting with a client over lunch. I mean come on, check this out. How stunning is this place? It’s the old ticket booking area, now converted into a restaurant and hotel. It’s just insane. Booked by the client, but I would 100% suggest you book too as this was rammed, and for good reason!!!
Even going for a pee was a WOW moment. I did indeed have to frequent this corridor quite a few times – that’s lunchtime beers for you. But…. just check it out. It’s a major wow factor, the stuff I miss in Singapore.
Get booked in here, and do not be disappointed – this is class Dining in London & Munich Town.

I mean come on – have a look. How could you not want to come here…?
And here comes the food. Focussing on mine this time. Here is the corn-fed chicken liver parfait with Kent cherries. OMG. Seriously so good. Die-die must try. Just so good. This was an absolute cracker!!!
To just call this roast pork belly is doing this a disservice. Slow roast fall-apart pork belly. A little apple. A little gravy of some sort. Roasted onions. Hey presto. This was a belter of a dish. Sublime. So very good!!!
I had to do a sneak peek of the client’s meal. This is the roast beef fillet with peppers. Come on, be a foodie, how good does this look? Love it!!!
