Beer & Buns

I tried something a little bit different last week and went to a newish, long-term pop-up called Beer & Buns. It does exactly what it says on the tin, as long as you don't assume that "Buns" is a reference to burgers. Or iced ones. Or bottoms.

No, these are steamed hirata buns, served in a Japanese-style izakaya. Read on for a translation...

A lido and a lookalike

It would take a whole blog post to explain where I'm "from" (we moved around A LOT), so whenever anyone asks I just make it simple and say that I'm from London. The five years that I've lived here is the longest I've been in one city since I was small, so I reckon that qualifies me. For the first three of those years I lived in various places in North London, but two years ago I moved south of the river by chance and have never looked back.

You're probably wondering where I'm going with this. Well, I'm going saaaf and I'm taking you with me, so I can show you where to get great brunch and see some smashing art in my little bit of London.
