The caipirinhas are amazing – refreshing, tangy and sweet. And at less than a fiver each, they’re easy on the wallet as well as the tongue. Be strong-willed as the staff will bring you more even when you say no…

Yummy! I’ve never not had a good meal here. Good value, if a little pared-back and cramped (come here alone and expect to be sat with another total random). Good to dive into after a hard afternoon’s shopping and browsing the nearby sex shops. Did I say that out loud? Yes. Yes I did :-)
11-13 Churchfield Road, London W3 6BD
Lovely for lunching with work colleagues. Sounds odd, but the efficient service we had on the 20th May meant that all 10 of us (we didn't arrive all at once, either) finished in record time, and sloped back to the office muttering about having work to do! Just not on for a Friday afternoon. We don't normally have that problem with the pub across the road, as the food takes longer to arrive, giving everyone a chance to shoot the breeze and chat.
That said, I thoroughly enjoyed my chicken breast burger and chunky chips; I'll probably be sampling the fishcake next time as I hear good things (through mouthfuls) about how good it was.

Been coming here for weekly lunches (say hi if you see me!) with work peeps for the last 9 months. Always a a good atmosphere. Pizzas and burgers go down a treat, and I quite like the quesadillas. I'm told the chicken salad could use more chicken, though...
It's smartened up a little since the recent refit, and props to whoever had control of the music a few months back and was dropping old-skool funk/soul like Rick James and Bernard Wright. Also, loving the table markers, made with excerpts of erotic novels. Good to read about veiny, throbbing pistons and dewy bosoms whilst waiting for your food :-)
109 rue de Bagnolet, 75020 Paris
Stylish (the staff wear adidas tracksuits as uniform!) boutique hotel. It;s got a great little restaurant, does an amazing breakfast, and my single room had an Apple TV! Super-comfy bed, Kiehl's toiletries, and a Batman mask over my bedside lamp. A lot of thought has gone into this place, and the location is close to the action without being in the middle of the maddening crowds.
BTW If you want to pop out for snacks, the nearest shops I saw were on the rue Bagnolet.
When I come to Paris again I'll be back at Mama's :-)
Rue Royale 250, 1210 Bruxelles
Funky boutique hotel, which doesn't charge boutique prices. I stayed here just before the Christmas of 2009, when it snowed like a mofo and I got stranded when the Eurostar had its epic fail. The service was friendly, the location ideal for getting around the beautiful city, and every room had an individual artwork painted on the wall! Really nice vibe; highly recommended.

I'd never been here before last night's 'Qypers Love' event. Trust me to be a late 'comer' to a talk about sex!
Anyway, the lovely staff dropped knowledge about G-spots, and how to find and get an orgasm from it; about spanking (complete with demo, but I was too shy to volunteer to whack one of the Sh! girls on the bum); and about the different types of devices on offer, and what they do. I had a browse through the books - such a great and varied selection! Same goes for the quality toys, the accessories, the lingerie. Everything is labelled with a helpful description, but you can still ask questions and not feel silly. The girls really know their stuff and genuinely seem to have a lot of time for you.
I'll definitely be back (I have a shopping list!) It was lovely to meet fellow Qypers too :-)

Bit of a mixed bag. The food is OK if you're having an informal meal with friends, but nothing special.
St. Ratford is an easy enough place to get to for east London-dwelling friends but CS isn't, I feel, a 'destination' choice.
In my experience the service has always been friendly, but slow (a reason I don't do Caribbean restaurants often - the service sucks) and, when I went last week, sometimes just plain clueless (the waitress forgot our drinks; Coke and sparkling water isn't that hard to remember, and it wasn't that busy, either).
Let's talk about the food: I had the sharing platter (2 fritters, 2 festivals, 4 fried shrimp, and jerk wings) and a side of macaroni pie, which was 'aight' but not better than anything my sister-in-law could make. The platter needs to have more on it to justify sharing, in my opinion; I'm not a big eater and it served well as a light main meal.
If you've not been before, unless you plan to eat 3 or more dishes of the buffet, order from the menu. A buffet meal will cost you £15, unless you go during the weekday lunchtime. Make sure your belly is bottomless and your legs hollow, though; there's a surcharge for leaving your plate unfinished. Is my dad running the place or something? I expect to be lectured about the Starving Children In Africa and get told off for 'wasting current' next!

Treat yourself! I did. On Friday 29th I bought, and shamelessly guzzled, not one but TWO Royal Wedding-themed cupcakes. They were a marriage made in heaven, of soft plain sponge with a jam-type filling, purple frosting, and fondant icing crowns encrusted with gold, green and purple edible glitter. NOM.
(TMI warning: Without being indelicate... eating super-glittery food leads to glittery, um, results. I'm now half-woman, half-unicorn.)

That rarest of things: a destination eaterie in Walthamstow. So good it'd be rude not to pass through if you find yourself in the area. Must admit, I do like the boutiquey, village-y vibe of Walthamstow Village. It's informal enough to take mates - and dates! - and relaxed enough to just hang here on your own for dinner or brunch in the summer sun (as I've done).
