Restaurant Reviews and Food Musings


Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and musings on food with you.

Kitgum Kitchen at The Sir Charles Napier

Kitgum Kitchen serves excellent East African street food alongside Gujarati home cooking in The Sir Charles Napier (a splendid local pub in Hanover Brighton - 50 Southover Street).

The above video shows newest member of the Kitgum family Christopher Roden preparing samosas.

Burger Off!

Whilst I appreciate that, for reasons best known to chefs, burgers are currently "on trend". May I suggest that if you must serve burgers in your restaurants, for heavens sake don't sandwich them between sour dough slabs, ciabatta or the equivalent of a loaf of bread.

These add nothing other than unnecessary stodge to what is in effect a lazy effort by the chef. Just use a bog standard hamburger bun.

Better still, stop being lazy and cook something more imaginative!

Advice To Chefs Re Food Towers

Whilst it may currently be "on trend" to pile food up upon each other (veg, then meat, then yorkshire etc) and smother it with gravy (aka a "food tower"), it makes the food unappealing and difficult to eat.

In the event that you can't fit it on the plate without piling it up, buy larger plates!
