Kimchi Princess review – Korean food in east Berlin

This review of a Berlin restaurant is a break from The Picky Glutton’s usual London-based coverage People never cease to surprise me. In light of the jaw-dropping levels of culinary conservatism that she demonstrated in Taipei, Chip Butty has an inexplicable fondness for Korean barbecue. We were therefore naturally compelled to eat the stuff at … Continue reading

Mushu review – Vegetarian Japanese in Fitzrovia?

I’m a big fan of meat, but I can respect the choice of vegetarians to avoid the bloody stuff. Two of my regular dining companions, the Prancing Hippy and the Flame Haired Squelchie, are vegetarians. Technically, the Hippy is a pescetarian as he does eat fish and other seafood – presumably they don’t deserve his … Continue reading
