Quenelle has both the familiar and unexpected in their array of offerings.

We both went with house made cones ($4.50):

... filled with vanilla and chocolate and mint chip and chocolate with an extra scoop of a surprisingly good kecap manis (soy sauce) flavored ice cream.

This curious cone core was followed by a salted chocolate chip cookie ($3.75):

... to sweetly seal the deal at swell Quenelle.

The Hungry Cat used to be our regular Hollywood haunt so we had to dash into their diminutive door for a fancy feast.

A pimlico and a carafe of Fonsainte:

... were quenching quaffs before the reliably good pug burger ($17.00):

... with blue cheese, avocado and bacon that did not stray from their standards.

Rare salmon ($28.00):

... with peppers, beets, beans and corn was frisky fish that nicely neutered our hunger.

The Hungry Cat keeps us coming back to this scratch post of domesticated dining.

Chocochicken’s concept is in the name.

The “crack combo” ($17.50):

... was a fried, chocolate-battered, breast and thigh with a choice of 2 sides.

They were out of the white chocolate mashed potatoes, so we went with a flaky, fatty, bacon biscuit:

... and an order of crisp, chocolate-dusted, duck fries:

Drumettes ($7.00):

... were good, but the winner was the moist-meated breast. This collision of cacao and clucker was a fun foray into fowl with a Hooters-eque vibe.

Dark chocolate ice cream was nudged with cacao nibs in a lickable lump of lactose perked by a Intelligensia coffee churnage:

... at Carmela ($4.75 each).

These appetizing afters were creamy, flavor-forward, sating scoops cradled in crunchy cones. We will have to return to check out their ice cream sandwiches.

The in house salumeria at chi Spacca:

... produced loads of luscious ‘lami like a ‘tacular speck, top notch trotter, punchy pate and cravable capocollo. Fat is hand cut to create creamy cubes in the tocai and calabrese. The board of affettati misti ($24.00) was required ordering at this ‘meria mecca.

The focaccia di recco ($18.00):

... was a result of regional research of this relishable ration.

Thin, cheese-streaked sheets of wood-fired flatbread was like a filo-pizza. We delighted in this flaky fromage frisbee.

Lamb neck ($27.00):

... had a dice of preserved lemon (made from the fruit from their tree behind the restaurant) and roasted castelvetrano olives in this succulent serving of Mary meat.

Short ribs ($36.00):

... were rubbed with dried, ground, porcini to up the ‘mami of this meaty pile of scallion streaked beef.

A borsellino ($9.00):

... was a little puffy purse of rhubarb and strawberry. The fruity filling had a nifty balance of sweet and tart in this carbo carryall.

All the chow was spac-tacular with wine counseling from the knowledgeable and friendly staff. We plan to return again soon.

After our travels, we felt like a walk to dinner so we opted for something near our hotel.


... is a small ‘stablishment that filled the bill.


... nigiri:

... and maki:

... were all solid sushi at this homey and hospitable hutch.

After watching the peppiest airplane safety video ever we were rewarded with a couple Barbie bottles of Glenfiddich:

... to wash down our melange of nuts, popcorn, hummus, chips and crackers on Virgin Air. A can of tuna seemed un airplaney in that its strong aroma must have drifted to others in our row, but it was part of the boxed lunch along with some wacky carrot and apple gummies.

There are flight attendants who can perform all the video moves as they appear on the video, but they weren’t on today’s flight.

Seabass, chili, sweet potato and red onion (£8.00):

... pooled in the “Don Ceviche” at Ceviche.

This Peruvian pisco bar served up some swell scallops (£9.00):

... tasty tongue (£7.00):

... and upbeat beef hearts (£7.00):

Wontons stuffed with chard, cheese and chicken (£4.50):

... and yucca (£3.50):

fulfilled our fancy for fried food while skewered pork belly (£8.00):

... had cracklins that quenched any further cravings.

Pisco took the place of water in their coffee:

... at this Peruvian palate pleaser.

Sea bass (£13.50):

... at The George:

... was served with a creamy risotto with peas, prawns and chives.

Nice crisp skin sealed the deal (but the scallops, although good, didn’t benefit from the same searing)

Gelato is dispensed in the shape of flowers at Amorino.

We enjoyed dessert from this Paris-born chain of chillage pruning the petals of creaminess creating our cone-tenment.

We are fond of these flora flourished finales.

A bowl of buta miso udon (£9.90):

... was a porky pool webbed with wheat noodles with ‘shroomy support at Koya Bar

This slurpable series of swine and strings kicked buta.
