Finally we get to try Zuma – it was by luck really as after being told that it was difficult to get a table at short notice, we actually got one for lunch within 48 hours! All excited after being told by some that they thought it was far better than Nobu, I hurried along to meet my lunch companions, family, to see what all the buzz about Zuma was about. I thought I’d put a picture up of what you would not normally see, the wall full of bottles which was one of the views I had at my table, as an interior shot of Zuma London.
Ah Nobu… the occasion to dine there? Just as a lead up to Chinese New Year 2013 and part belated birthday celebrations of two family members! The Old Park Lane, one of the notoriously difficult areas to find parking, I found myself rushing and cursing to meet the rest of my family there on time. However, much to my relief, I wasn’t the only one delayed, so had time to sit by the bar to recompose myself. So while waiting I decided to try the Olympus OM-D in low light (no flash) and took the candle & menu below.
If you’re ever in need of spaghetti with lobster, this is the place to go in London! Olivomare based in Lower Belgravia, not far from Victoria. My sister and brother-in-law are also fans and when they decided to visit London, they asked me to book a table before their arrival for lunch on the day they flew in.
Having had a Canon Powershot for a number of years, I was keen to find a nice camera that would bridge the gap between handy small camera with LCD screen only and my Canon SLR with a view finder. There was much procrastinating as I never got that “yes this is the one” feeling when I looked around. Of course the camera staff at various shops were quick to point out that I was asking the impossible and gave me that “get real” look plus, I have to admit, looks of “what does this girl know about cameras”. However… I persevered, as for me, there really isn’t any point of “making do” with something, and of course as some would know, I have certain stubborness when told “not possible”!
