Meat Liquor, London

Anyone on the foodie scene in London will have heard of #Meateasy. For those of you who haven't this is a meat wagon of joy that serves up possibly the best burgers in London. Unfortunately, that wagon of meat was stolen and Yianni Papoutsis, the creator of these meaty morsels had to go guerilla. Setting up a pop up in a pub in New Cross to serve his meat, Yanni was a hit. When it closed, meat lovers shed a tear… that is until MEAT Liquor opened.

I've got to really want it to wait 45 minutes, and I really wanted some of Yanni's meat, I also wanted his buns and booze. So in the cold last night I waited. Unfortunately, I also waited once I was sat down, waited after I ordered and waited to pay. The service here is a shit-show. I watched as one waitress walked back and forth 6 times with the same wet cloth in her hand not actually speaking to customers trying to get her attention, and ignoring the orders waiting to be delivered at the bar. Damn awful.

But, I didn't come here to talk about the service (lack of), I came here to get my lips around a mighty chunk of meat, and that I did. My dining partner is not like me. He never exaggerates for affect or humour so when he says that this is the best burger he's ever eaten in his meat eating life, do not knock it. 

A little pink in the middle, the pattie burger actually melts in your mouth. They also have an outstanding selection of sides and starters. The buffalo wings were lovely and vinegary with a slight kick and the blue cheese sauce with actual blue cheese in it was perfectly pongy. As for the onion rings, that sexy batter that was light and fluffy, cooked just so that the onion doesn't actually get greasy beneath it's batter coat.

The bar is also impressive. Sazerac and St Thomas are on the menu and they even managed to cobble together an Aviation when I asked. They have a library of hot sauces and I even found one that was just to hot for me - this rarely happens.

So booze, tick, meat, tick, everything else, try again. Uncomfortable seating, really loud music and service that makes you want to scream. Was it worth it? Totally! I hate myself a little bit right now.

A change...

It's been a while since I have posted a London cat photo. Maybe it's the cold weather pushing them all inside next to radiators or finding that warm spot on the floor where the pipes run – I know I'm finding it harder to get out the house these days. It could also be the fact that I'm walking less. I've joined the thousands of cyclist in London and commute to work by bike. Now I no longer notice feline faces on doorsteps, under cars and hiding under parked cars. As a result I'm going to grow and develop this blog into an online version of my head.

I suggest you keep following if you're interested in any of these:

Cats and squirrels are still the love of my life, I will still post updates and photos of the things that I see.

Online Communities
I'm a Senior Community Manager. Up until a few years ago a CM didn't even exist and now it seems like every brand and company are looking to fill this role. There is a lot to learn and most of it is from experience. I hopefully will share some ideas that will be helpful to people just starting out as well as insightful to those working within the industry.

London Life
I've lived in London for almost 10 years now. I know it well but I always strive to discover new places and events. There is this current obsession with Pop Up shops, bars and restaurants which makes the foodie scene ever changing. Also, as we all know, the current financial climate means that businesses are opening and closing daily. This makes the city fascinating. I will be blogging about the most exciting things.

As a female cyclist in London I have learnt the hard way best practices on the road: falling off my bike, having it knicked, flat tyres, cycling in skirts. A lot has happened and I'd love to share this with people. Hopefully it'll make more ladies brave enough to get on a bike and inspire people to see cycling as a fun and exciting sport for everyone.

Nails, Make Up and Products
I'm obsessed with nail varnish and make up. I'm also super fussy about products I use and will give you honest advise and opinion on what you use to make you look more fabulous.

So now you know the plan (as much of one that there is...) I'll be writing again soon.

There are millions of blogs out there so I hope that this will be fresh, funny and interesting. Please feel free to leave comments and suggestion. I'd love to hear from you all.


RSPCA's Tweetathon

"Cats don't tweet, birds do" I hear you cry...

It's rarely that I write on here. Mainly it's grain snaps of cats lurking around London but here me up (my grand audience of eight - hi Mum!) The RSPCA has just finished a tweetaton to spread the word about the RSPCA Frontline team and their dedication to rescuing trapped, hurt and abandoned animals 24/7. Pretty cool hey?!

There are around 8 million pet cats in the UK (I know, I make it my mission to pap them) but not all of them are lucky enough to have loving and caring homes. The hard working people at the RSPCA take a call every 30 seconds and respond to almost 1000 incidents a day. That's a lot of pussy! They need your support so check out their page online and as the RSPCA is funded entirely by voluntary donations feel free to throw some pennies and pounds their way. Don't forget you can also follow them on twitter.

Meow for now...


Pub Pussy II

I've been trying to get this fella for months, he lives in The White Bear and i always see him peering through the window. Today he was enjoying the warm weather and Erwin Magic got a snappy snap. Nice!


The Year Of Tron

So on January 1st I went to the BFI IMAX to watch Tron. Inspired by that, I was sent this (originally found here) and just had to post it for your si-fi pussy pleasure. Indeed, I feel that the presence of Catron in the movie would have greatly improved it.
