Mildred’s Dalston: Mexican beans and mock chicken

Mildred's Dalston

I recently went to take advantage of the opening offer at Mildred’s Dalston venue, their latest branch. With V in tow we happily searched for the restaurant, more than eager to see what we might try this time.

It turned out to be reasonably hard to find from a walking perspective, because it’s tucked round the back of the station in the middle of nowhere. Literally – the view out of the large floor-to-ceiling windows is simply a lot of concrete and a few miserable trees, which is a bit of a shame. It’s not yet clear why they would choose to have such feature windows facing such a dismal view, but perhaps there is redevelopment planned for the area soon. read more


Harry Ramsden’s – Halloumi Burger

Last week J and I managed to grab a very quick break in the middle of moving house and headed out to Bournemouth for one night. We had a great time staying at the Royal Bath Hotel – more on that at some later date – and also found the time to seek out a couple of the veggie burger options near the beach. Hopefully we’ll be able to return in future as there were just so many restaurants nearby that had veggie burgers on the menu! read more
