BARCELONA: MUR MURI HOTEL

November 21st, 2012 | Posted by The Booyah Cook in Travel - (0 Comments)

It was a quick work trip and I don’t know Barcelona so well. It could have been really nice but it wasn’t. Like the counter staff were very nice but kept talking for ages before¬†recognizing¬†you were there. Or one of the bar staff was an utter dickhead – I dunno if he though he was being funny or what telling me what I really wanted was a Cosmopolitan (?! PLEASE?!) Later a younger girl went back to the bar saying it was too alcoholic could they water it down for her, they were laughing about her behind her back in front of me. Not cool.

On the other hand, the restaurant staff within the hotel were outstanding and the service was great. I had a great fish and rice soup and then here is my dessert. It is a melon soup with melon sorbet and mint. It was really delicious. However it does look like a knob coming out of a bowl of whatever…

This cake shop is meant to be one of the best in Barcelona. I don’t know if I would say that. This was like a victoria sponge inside and all a bit dry.

So, better luck next time hey Barcelona?

FASHION: RYAN LO

November 20th, 2012 | Posted by The Booyah Cook in Fashion - (0 Comments)

Ryan Lo was one of the Fashion East Designers showing this year on Lulu Guiness’ schedule. His clothes are pink, trashy, girly and fabulous. And a little bit freaky when you realise some are from knitted tinsel. A few weeks later, Anthony and I ate in China Town and I had this desert. It is just like one of Ryan Lo’s dresses.
