With all the new restaurants popping up around Kings Cross since the redevelopment, Elldrew had previously had a lovely meal at Camino Spanish restaurant, so we were looking for somewhere to dine in the area again when we came across Karpo. Actually located on Euston Road opposite the station, away from all the new restaurants, we’re not sure how old the restaurant is, but reading great reviews we simply had to try it.
Without sounding like a line from an episode of Nigella Bites, there’s nothing better than getting cozy on the sofa, on a wintery evening, with a bowl of hearty one-pot stew, a chunk of crusty rye bread and an optional glass of full-bodied red. Remote control in reaching distance. Cue chill-out time.
No Elldrew have not turned political editors, that’s not our style, but with the turmoil of the Euro continuing to plague the financial world there’s no better way, if only for a night, to celebrate all things Europe then with a song. Yes we’re talking about the Eurovision Song Contest.
The demise of poor dear Donna Summer got us thinking about Macarthur Park and that cake that she left out in the rain.
Firstly, a tad silly of her to leave it in the rain. Being a baker myself, I know that’s simply a novice mistake – yes, one might cool it on the windowsill, or take it to a picnic in a basket, perhaps for alfresco dining a glass cake dome would work – but leaving it outside unprotected on a rainy day…simply silly!
