Honest Burgers Camden: Great burgers at a good price

We had our brunch at Honest Burgers Camden on a rainy morning, just before they were supposed to open. Exploring Camden Market without only a latte and some cake for breakfast made us crave for an early lunch.  The staff had no problem letting us in to escape the rain, but reminded us that we’d have a good few minutes to look at the menu before they can punch our orders into the system.  No problem with us at all, as…

Rock & Sole Plaice: A fishy tourist trap

We were seated with good view of the oven, which unlike what some might have thought,…

Hizen-ya (肥前屋): Excellent eel rice outside Japan

肥前屋 has one of the best eel rice I’ve had outside Japan. This the locals know only too well, as evidenced by the persistently long queue outside the shop, which at times has over 60 waiting customers and stretches to the next block, despite the rather out-of-the-way location of the restaurant on a back alley off Tianjin Street. The dilemma of this shop is that for tourists (like us), the only way we can easily find it is by locating…
