Things I did last week

On Monday I went on a Southwest London adventure! I started in Norbiton, with a very nice lunch with [personal profile] bob at Roz Ana, a surprisingly good modern Indian restaurant. Then Richard joined us for pubbing at the Albert, the Norbiton and Dragon, and the Spring Grove. We then walked up to Kingston Station (in a wiggly line so I could take some more RGL photos of places like Wagamama and Lush) and got a train to New Malden, where we had dinner at a tiny Korean cafe called Hamgipak and then a final beer at the Glasshouse opposite the station, before heading home.

On Tuesday I did a big pile of work, then made mangetout and oregano soup and gormeh sabzi for dinner.

On Wednesday I had lunch with [personal profile] bob at Le Vacherin in Chiswick, then visited the Brook and the Andover Arms before meeting [livejournal.com profile] mjg59 and bob at the Salutation. Then we went to Indian Zing for some very tasty Indian food.

On Thursday and Friday I don't think I did anything except work. Though I did have some fun figuring out Korean transliterations and stuff from the bill we got at Hamgipak earlier in the week.

On Saturday I cooked an enormous feast: tomato rasam, cumin fried potatoes, cabbage with lemon and coconut, courgettes with fresh coriander, dal makhani, tarka dal, lamb chops marinaded with yoghurt and chilli, carrot achar, and basmati rice. Astoundingly, [personal profile] bob, [livejournal.com profile] uon, and I managed to eat most of it.

On Sunday I went on a Southeast London adventure! I dragged [personal profile] bob down the Southeastern Main Line to Chislehurst, where we drank beer in the Queen's Head, the Gordon Arms, the Bull's Head, the Crown Inn, the Ramblers Rest, and the Bickley. Then we had dinner at Denny's and got the train home.
