Solo dining in Bandung, Indonesia

I know it’s been a while since I have posted any entries and that is down to business trips in foreign climes. Recently I was sent to Indonesia and thought I would take the opportunity to try a few of the local dishes. I also happened to be alone on this business trip so thought it would make the perfect blog entry! View Post

Solo dining @ Le Verre Siffleur, Paris


On a bitterly cold winter’s night what better way to warm the soul than to have a rib sticking meal in a neighbourhood brasserie in 14th arrondissement.

This is exactly what I did on my second foray of solo eating in Paris.  From a swift read of the menu blackboard on the pavement, and I mean swift, it was -2 and snowing that night. I was enticed in by a modern take on a French brasserie. As I opened the door and pushed past the heavy red velvet curtains, providing a welcomed barrier to the harsh elements outside, I was greeted by a waitress whose smile lit up the room. I told her I wanted a table for one for dinner which didn’t seem to faze her. She gave me a choice of two tables. Neither table was hidden away and I chose one facing the rest of the restaurant.

Crêpe au Petit Josselin

9 February 2013

What better way to start my solo dining experience in early February than with a crêpe. Pancake day is on 12 February this year. I love any excuse to eat a pancake or, given my vie parisenne, a crêpe. View Post
