Last week I visited Havet Restaurant in Bromley. It always surprises me how busy this restaurant is on any day of the week! It’s a tasty Turkish restaurant which has an open grill (behind a screen) with fresh salads and tasty starters (their hummus is to die for!) with friendly efficient service. I accompanied my Meal which consisted of a lamb kebab/chicken kebab combo, tomato salad and bulger rice with a bottle of the tasty house white wine (or 2 🙂 )
Over the road The Barrel and Horn provided us with some after dinner Gin & Tonics – I love the vintage theme in this bar which usually accommodates the over 25 clientèle – a nice respite from the 18 year old drinkers that Bromley tends to attract in many places. Although it wasn’t that busy seen as it was a Tuesday night I have been here before when it’s rammed, sometimes with a live singer or band. My friends even gave us a quick rendition of chop sticks on the piano – perhaps best left to the professionals they have in!!
In kiddie world this week we collected plenty of conkers to thread Daddies old shoe laces through and have conker wars – it’s easy peasy – just get a screwdriver and run the lace through the middle with a knot underneath and take turns to hit each others conker off first. My (nearly) 4 year old loved it and couldn’t wait to ask every person who stepped over the threshold for a match – simple things 🙂
Lastly I had the pleasure of attending the JSA boat party down the Thames on Sunday. It’s a yearly event which includes the families of their clients rather than an evening event. This year they surpassed themselves! The entertainment which ranged from face painting and tattoos to balloon men, caricaturists and magicians to George Michael and Keith Lemon kept everyone entertained whilst taking in the sites of London. The Keith Lemon impersonator was soooo good and really engaging, we met him as Tim nice but dim when we first boarded 🙂 My facebook video of George Michael has had friends asking if it really was George which speaks for itself really!
I’m awaiting the twitter handles for the entertainment team as I highly recommend every single one of them! – UPDATE: All the entertainers were brought together by Zap Magic . The caricaturists are Simon & Sheba of www.bitterandtwisted.org
With a paid for bar i sampled the fizz on arrival and a nice dry white wine aboard and sampled a very nice white from Laithwaites on my arrival home which i will let you know the name of when I get home!
What wine have you tried this week??
