London; Buenos Aires – Steak & The Best Dessert. EVER.

On my way into work, most every morning I walk past a cluster of restaurants in a commercial alleyway with unassuming facades, smack in-between coffee shops and a DIY store, opposite a white wall.

No. 1 Duke Street- Richmond

Besides the wonderful Borough market is the surrounding itself, the brownstones and mewses, cobbled streets, nooks and crannies. Your curiosity will lead you on, like it does me whenever I’m there. Pop into Paul Smith around the corner from the market, my favourite branch because its so typically english, with a country manor charm if…
