I come from a long line of noodle heads.  Before communism claimed south Vietnam, my maternal grandfather had built himself a small but respectable business as a noodle maker and before long a noodle soup street food vendor in one of the alleyways of Saigon.  As a father to nine daughters and four sons, he had bred…

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of enjoying a long lunch with a new friend and fellow expat, Julie of A Lady in London, at Fera the new restaurant in Claridge’s hotel.  Everything about the restaurant caught my eye, from the dark, burlesque-like entryway into the restaurant to the aquamarine dining room, further contrasted…

When I received the invitation to stop by Rodells to take some photos and sample some grub I assumed I shouldn’t bring Mark, my pescetarian other half.  Rodells is a tapas-style restaurant located in Watford (just a 1 minute walk from Watford Junction station) that serves mostly tapas style dishes.  In our experience, tapas typically aren’t very vegetarian/pescetarian friendly meals.
