Som Saa, 43a Commercial Street, London E1 6BD (020 7324 7790). Limited bookings for four or more. Meal for two including drinks and service: £75-£120 You join me in the smallest room in the house as I sit contemplating one of the biggest pieces of grit in life's pearly oyster, which is to say consequences.
In the 1970s there was a Chinese restaurant near where I lived that served a dish they called sweet and sour pork. It was the colour of David Dickinson, and tasted of a cross between Tizer and orange-flavoured Nurofen. Naturally, being a kid, I thought it was brilliant.
Clipstone, 5 Clipstone Street, London W1W 6BB (020 7637 0871). Meal for two including drinks and service: £80-£120 Among the readers of these reviews is a group of men preoccupied with their own arses. This is not abuse. I'm being literal.
Hantverk & Found, 18 King Street, Margate CT9 1DA (01843 280 454). Meal for two including drinks and service: £60-£80 A bright Sunday morning in late summer and along King Street in Margate the pavements are stacked with tattered fragments of my late parents' lives.
The Classroom, CAVC City Centre Campus, Dumballs Road, Cardiff CF10 5FE (029 2025 0377). Meal for two, including drinks and service: £60 Even the greenest of cities have their tattered edges and Cardiff, which is greener than most, is no exception. If you get a window seat at this week's restaurant, try not to look straight down.
Anna Longthorp likes looking at her pigs. She stands, hands on hips, with the relaxed gait of a woman used to the challenges of keeping upright in a cracked and furrowed field, and watches her animals. "If your pigs are happy they'll be more productive," she says, bluntly.
The Good Egg, 93 Stoke Newington Church Street, London N16 0AS (020 7682 2120). Meal for two, including drinks and service: £90 Occasionally, restaurants bestow upon those of us charged with writing about them a gift, albeit unwittingly.
It is high summer, a time when many of us are forced to face up to a deeply unpalatable truth: that, when it comes to food, we are nothing more than slatterns. For this is the one time of the year when, in preparation for going on holiday, we can be guaranteed to clean the fridge.
At some point over the past couple of weeks The Dulwich Estate, the vast south London landowner with charitable status which gives 85% of its expendable money to three highly exclusive private schools, published its accounts to March 2016. The most revealing detail is the graph above, with its accompanying narrative.
Chriskitch Hoxton, 5 Hoxton Market, London N1 6HG (020 7033 6666). Meal for two, including drinks and service: £120 The first time I went to one of chef Christian Honor's restaurants it was for salad. It says much about those salads that the journey, a quest to match anything Frodo Baggins ever embarked upon, did not feel wasted.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
