Life can be hard at times for your humble food blogger, Forking Delicious. Samuel Johnson once said, ‘If you are tired of London, you are tired of life’, but frankly I’m tired of London and tired of the myriad rip-off restaurants which charge £40 a head for a pea-portioned sized plate.
I can’t promise you postcard-perfect concoctions, despite all the help Instagram can give me. But if you want to read about disappointment, wasabi flavoured Kit Kats and numerous failed attempts to find just one joint in London which serves authentic South East Asian food, this is the place to be. Kind of like a foodie version of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, I guess. Or if Tom Waits sung about overpriced, overhyped restaurants in London.
There will be laughter. There will be tears. There will be lots of weird food featured. But dammit if I can help it, I’m just looking to eat something forking delicious.
