Went to The Ivy last night. My lamb was alright, but his pork chop was mental tasty.

The actual original "The Ivy" or one of "The Ivy Collection" restaurants that are dotted around the country?

Went to the one in Cheltenham a few times and was very impressed with it, excellent food and a great setting. There's one opening up in Cardiff soon which I'm keen to get along to as well!

The one just opened in Glasgow. Not quite as good as OG but the quality reflects the price.

Went to a restaurant near the office for lunch, first time seeing Nasi Goreng on a menu so I had to partake, it was delicious as it always is but there was no fried egg on top so it felt incomplete.

Popped into Iceland and noticed Gino Di'Campo has his own range of ready meals. I got the meatballs and cooked it in the oven and had it with pasta. Wow it was so tasty the meatballs and the sauce!
I recommend you guys to try them too

Might look into that. I have a tonne of rice in the house (true story: I did a No Deal Brexit stockpile in March :lol: ).

So I need some good ideas for new rice dishes to mix it up a bit.

Looks lush. It actually looks pretty festive. Is it a meal in itself or did you have it with stuff?

I did it as part of a vegetarian buffet at a christmas party with some other middle eastern dishes (things like borekas, muhammara, hummus, falafel).

Nasi Goreng is a winner, its handy enough to make too, you can tweak it any way you like, just get that fried egg on there.

Love a bit of Nasi Goreng. When I was in Indonesia the food was absolutely brilliant, at all times.
