I met Jonathan kind of randomly at a beta-testing for Trusted Places. We got to talking and we worked out that we worked in the same industry. Then we exchanged blog-cards and I realized that he was the genius behind Around Britain With A Paunch. This is really a GREAT foodie blog, the writing is witty and insightful and the tips are always spot-on. If you haven't read it and like food, what are you waiting for?
So when Jonathan said let's meet up for lunch, I really had to think hard about a sandwich place to take him. Victoria is not known for its culinary delights, but what was funny was when I knew that I needed to find somewhere un-chain-y, somewhere really good and interesting it made me look at my local streets with a totally fresh eye.
And you know what, we found some brilliant places that I had never even noticed before - Portuguese cafes, Spanish tortilla bars and Gastronomeria Italia on Upper Tatchbrook Street. Its been there for 30+ years, a great little neighbourhood local with exquisite sandwiches .
Anyway, I will be keeping an eye on Netvibes for Jonathan's review.
But it was an interesting exercise, if you had a Sandwich Correspondent come to have lunch close to your work, where would you take them?
