Food wars: NY vs London

Unlike New York, London has never been famous for its food scene. In fact, until very recently, London's gastro-reputation was pretty bad for a world city. It lacked the massive number of varied, glittering, fabulous restaurants of New York. And the ethnic food wasn't up to much either. Brick Lane curry houses may have a certain appeal after a night in a Shoreditch pub, but they're not exactly destination dining.

Maybe London still doesn't quite live up to New York's foodie standards. But one thing's for sure. In London we eat a heck of a lot better at home.
Sunday Roast (Thai style)
Steak Night

Thanks to the proximity of a good - if small - Farmer's Market, and a couple of excellent - if pricey - butchers, our dining table is seeing plenty of action.

In New York we ate in only once or twice a week. I knew I was missing cooking and eating at home. But I had forgotten quite how very much I love it. From my perspective, the food in my little (Fox) corner of London, is way better than New York.

    Hmm, this blog is becoming very food-centric. Is there an underlying message???
