Restaurant of the week: My Old Dutch

My Old Dutch

16 Kensington Church Street, London W8 4EP

The ideal place for a cheeky dessert or great dinner!

There is a great choice so if you are with others order different things and share them al because trust me you are going to want to try everything. The savoury pancakes come serve like a huge flat pizza with all the extras on top. 

For dessert the 'mini' pancakes or poffertjes are divine and great for sharing...just pick your accompliment.

Plus with 3 resturants in London-in Kensington, Holborn and Chelsea - take your pick!

Happy munching and let me know what you think!

Restaurant of the Week (or not): Del'Aziz


Tonight I went for dinner at the middle eastern style restaurant at Westfield, White City, London. 

We decided to go for a selection of starters between us so we could taste lots of different things. The food was delicious, we both really enjoyed it.

However, the big let down was the service, and it let the place down in the extreme. The reason I had picked out this restaurant was because I have a Gourmet Society card and on the website it had a 2 for 1 on main meals at this restaurant. However, despite booking and stating my membership then the evening before I was told when I went to pay that the card wasn't accepted. When I asked to speak to the manager I was given a measly 10% of the bill and there was no sign of the manager. I pushed and finally the manager appeared and proceeded to shout at me and tell me there was nothing he could do, no apology, nothing. 

As you can tell this was not a nice experience and ruined what had been a lovely evening with my friend. Advise...avoid this place like the plague, out of principle if nothing else join with me against REALLY BAD service.
