    Simalu

    When the editor of this magazine told me that this month’s restaurant of the month was to be a recently opened Peruvian in the Barrio del Carmen, I was really quite excited. It is a cuisine I don’t really know that much about. I have tried ceviche and I had heard of the Peruvian cocktail […]

    Hannah Banana Cake

    By Helen Westwater It may be a strange phenomenon but in La Ola Fresca most of our best loved cakes seem to adopt personalities all of their own.

    Croissants!

    By Helen Westwater La Ola Fresca  So, while a well-known UK supermarket blows up a storm of scorn from the French…for launching a new, straight- lined croissant that is easier for their customers to spread with butter and jam…this March we get back to basics, roll up the shirtsleeves and make our own.

    98 Degrees Dim Sum Experience

      Steaming to Success Walking through the streets of the Barrio del Carmen on the way to our table at 98 Degrees Dim Sum Experience was a little like being on the set of ‘The Walking Dead’.
