Bars and Restaurants

Chinese Cricket Club

It had been a long day of coding and I’d just split a bottle of wine. A quick meal was needed before a well-needed deep sleep. I love tastecard deals so I looked up local establishments and settled on the Chinese Cricket Club which offers a generous 50% off the bill. It’s in a great location just north of Blackfriar’s Bridge based inside the Crown Plaza.

From the heights of Sushi Samba to the depths of Hakkasan #TheHighlights

I’m very aware of my current lack of direction with this blog and clarity on its themes–the blogosphere is still a new and mysterious world to me with plenty more to explore and discover. Hopefully the action of this will help influence and shape my own space.

However, for now, there is one thing I do know; I really do indeed enjoy reading about what individuals are doing and trying out, particularly restaurants and bars in and about London. Lifestyle blogs are very readable but I’m not entirely sure that will be the sole content for the Drifting Londoner BUT I’ll try posting weekly roundups for now and see how it goes… Continue reading “From the heights of Sushi Samba to the depths of Hakkasan #TheHighlights”
