A fantastic place for everyone who wants to spend a whole afternoon with relaxation and romantics.
Located in the central of Shanghai (very close to the Oriental Pearl Tower), the tea house is fully British style and you can find every genuine tea that you've missed from the west for a long time.
Surrounded by the lovely music and rose aroma, enjoy reading a book from the shelf, you will be kept away from city's noise and fully relax yourself in an elegant way.
Address: Gound floor ZhengDa Square, LuJiaZui Road, PuDong, Shanghai.

We had lunch at Plush last Thursday, our first visit. Friendly and welcoming staff, lovely food - fresh, well presented and full of flavour across all three courses - with a good bottle of Sauv Blanc.
All with prompt but unobtrusive service.
Seated by a tropical fish tank, which was entertaining. All for £50 - great value and well recommended.
10 York Place. Near Wellington Street and railway station.

Should you visit Bursa for its architectural marvels, spa hotels, and the Turkish Mt Olympus, do not omit to visit either of these restaurants. Bursa or Iskender kebab is served throughout Turkey, and while döner kebab served atop pide with yoghurt, tomato sauce and browned butter should not insuperably challenge a chef anywhere, the dish is only good, in fact excellent, at these two restaurants in Bursa. They serve almost nothing else, and one orders by size—bir, bir buçuk, dublé—and one-and-a-half is plenty.
Kukla Kebab, a diplomat's favorite outside the Foreign Ministry in Ankara, does a credible version, but really, one should only eat it here.
They're in all the guidebooks. The dish was originated at Iskenderoğlu; Hacı Baba provides competitive edge.
Paulista Grill is heaven for those who like BBQ and hell for those with high cholesterol.
It is part of a Brazilian chain. They offer ample premises and private rooms and, of course, buffet style BBQ.
The buffet has different kinds of salads, rice, pasta and cuts of meats. Also includes dessert!
Less than £5 or USD$10 per person.

It is a great place to grab a snack at really affordable prices. It offers Paraguayan style burguers (steaks not mince meat), pizzas and pasta.
Combos at £1.50 or USD$3.

Palma between 14 de Mayo and 15 de Agosto and all main shopping centres.
If you're visiting Cappadocia, this town is an easy side trip from the main tourist sites. Much as Konya is the historic centre of the Mevlevi, or whirling dervishes, so Hacıbektaş is to the Bektashi, and if such things interest you it is definitely worth a visit. Less touristed than Konya, simple piety is the behavioral mode. The museum complex contains the tomb of the founder, Hacı Bektaş, and the saints of the order. The Bektashi promulgated the study of the sciences, the pictorial arts, and the equality of women. The architecture of the compound is extraordinary, almost as if an Anatolian Frank Lloyd Wright had dropped by, so ideally does it suit the landscape. In summer, Bektashi dances are demonstrated in the courtyard a few afternoons a week, and there is a Bektashi Festival at the end of July or the beginning of August.
There are a very few hotels, but the local food is good. A pideci on the way out of town on the Nevşehir road makes some of the best pizza I've had anywhere, and provides an ideal lunch.
North of town there is a ceremonial hill commanding a fine view of the volcano Mt. Erciyes and the steppes east.
North on the road out of Nevşehir past Gülşehir and on the the way to Ankara.
Just a lovely, proper fish and chip shop, with a website would you believe! Portion size is perfect with the choice of three different sizes of fish, great chips, mushy peas, cup of tea and the all important bread and butter.

Giovanni di Penco each weekday serves the most wonderful homemade pasta at the unbeatable price of about £5!!!
Freshly made bread to go with that, a perfect espresso, can you ask for more? If they have time they make panna cotta and tiramisu. Lunch only, no bookings. A bit hard to find, tucked away behind the big theatre. Follow the crowd!

The hip crowd, and everybody else loves it. Just refurbished, it's still excellent value and the food by wunderchef Bjorn Malmsten is Scandinavian with a twist.
Booking has become essential if you want to eat or simply have a beer in the bar.

This is undoubtedly the best chippie in the country - it was chosen by the BBC for inclusion in the "50 places to eat" programme, but at the last minute they were told that they wouldn't be included - I guess Ainslie wanted the trip to go to the chippy they included in Sydney!
Anyway, the food is always marvellous and it has a very wide reputation. Warning - if you go when the Royal Show is on, expect even longer queues than normal as it seems as if all the exhibitors come over from Stoneleigh to get their dinner!
I've been using it for around 30 years and it's never been less than perfect.
School Lane, Kenilworth, Warks.
I don’t know its name but it’s the first chippy after the traffic lights (right) heading east from the Highlands on the A85. It has a happy looking fish sign above the door.
The most consistently good fish and chips I have ever had, been more than maybe 15-20 times – never disappointed always good with friendly service.
Been to the “Real food Café”, Tyndrum many times, expensive and not close in quality. Ben Ledi Cafe down the road in Callander has been good but not consistent.
The famous Antstruther chippy is good, but not as good as the Callander chippy!
My husband and stayed at the Gablerbrau in December 06 and we were delighted with the hotel. Rooms are simple but very comfortable, clean and relaxing after a tough day on the cobbles. We usually prefer to dine away from our hotel when on holidays but the Gablerbrau's restaurant is great - very popular with locals also. The bar is a great spot to watch people come and go.
The location is excellent also, situated over the bridge from the old town. The bathroom was spacious and very modern with a great big sink and a pull-out face mirror.
Overall great value (there was no mini-bar in the room but who would use a mini-bar with such great beer on tap downstairs? there is also a beer vending machine on each floor) and heartily recommended.

If you want a lazy lunch in beautiful surroundings then this is the place for you. Eat in the tented covered gardens whilst enjoying wonderful caipirinhas then if you like, buy the table and chairs you have been sitting at and on. Every piece of furniture and artwork at the restaurant is for sale. Inside there is a well stocked wine cellar. The staff are very friendly and know their food and drink.
Rua Minas Gerais, 112
Brilliant old school fish & chip shop, opens remarkable hours. We've lived here for nearly 10 years but only found it in the last 18 months as it just opens Thurs eve, Fri lunch, Fri eve and Sat lunch. Massive queues, short menu, good prices, run by friendly husband and wife team. Beautiful, careful cooking. Fantastic!
Iles Lane, Knaresborough - just off York Road, 10 minutes walk from Knaresborough train station, or a 2 minute walk from the bus station.
Fantastic restaurant/bistro in the heart of the Jardims district with a well being centre upstairs. They serve modern Brazilian and International dishes that are really well put together. Both inside and outside spaces for eating. Start off with a very reasonable "Chandon" - the Brazilian champagne! Yum!
Rua Pardre Joao Manuel, 950.
I recommend this restaurant if you fancy a Fawlty Towers experience. I went there with my family which included my two young nephews. The place itself is quite posh, however the mature waiter lost the plot.
We tried to order two Margherita pizzas with ham on. This sent the waiter into a rage with him srcatching frantically into his writing pad. He pronouced loudly he had a table of 20 booked which were coming any minute. We all felt intimidated by his behaviour.
After being told another pizza was off the menu we quickly left. Service with a smile it wasn't!

Excellent English and Chinese meals served by staff who are ALWAYS pleasant. Their fish and chips especially, are to die for - never less than generous portions and always crisp and dry.
