A white, Italian wine that tastes of pear.
This ‘Bellotti Bianco’ has a distinctive taste of melon and pear.
I drank it with fish and salad on the recommendation of Noble Fine Liquor (cost £13) and am planning to get some more to drink in the sun over the Summer. It’s made by a chap called Stefano Bellotti on a farm called ‘Cascina deglie Ulivi‘ in Northern Italy.
This is what someone who knows what they’re talking about has to say: Dedalus Wine review.
Here’s a nice blog post about a visit to the ‘Olive Farm’ where the wine comes from (it was intended to be an olive farm but ended up as a vineyard, apparently): Not Drinking Poison in Paris.
I’ve found an online retailer here that sell it for £11.75 before postage is added.
Mangal 1 in Dalston makes my favourite kebabs. Their mixed kebab is a treat and a regular fixture of my Friday nights.

Oh, and their sister restaurant Mangal 2 is quite busy on Twitter.
All the popular kids in my school ended up on Jeremy Kyle. All the weird kids ended up in Dalston.

London’s a weird place for food.
We do formal expensive food well but I think there’s a need for more informal places where you can eat for under a tenner.
That’s why I like Voodoo Ray’s, where pizza is £3-£4 by the slice, and the guys working there are nice (nice people can be a rarity in Dalston).

My girlfriend’s parents kindly bought me some whisky for Christmas and I decided to open this first, the Bowmore Islay. It has lovely taste of honey and lemon that is opened up with a splash of water.
