MY GOOD MATE HELEN’S TOP PICKS

The Lovely Helen

Don’t let me drink on an empty stomach. I did one day after work and started promoting this website faster than a dog can shag on heat. I might as well have been handed a pedestal, Power Point and laser pointer. Don’t know why I haven’t told anyone at work up till then. To maintain professional integrity? (Apparently I don’t have any anyways…according to Marie – thanks mate).

Helen, a good mate, happened to be there at the pub. Her main claim to fame is having completed the London Marathon this year. Her time? I’ll let her tell you that…don’t wanna get it wrong (did ya stop to pee?). When she heard about this little foray into the culinary world, she immediately grabbed a paper and pen and began scribbling furiously. It was scary. Never seen her work so hard. Anyway, here are the restaurants she SWEARS by. Most of them anyway. Visit them and see what you think. I know I’ll be trying some. If they suck, tell me and I’ll send you her mobile number and email address. We’ll taunt her together.
