JUST SNAPPED @littleswallowchinadoll

A little bit of culture

Another so-so week of weather in London so far *dramatic sigh*. It's starting to feel a lot like Melbourne, with four seasons in one day.

Miss O, Miss J and I headed to see Noises Off at the Novello Theatre earlier this week which was laugh out loud funny - the actors have some mad skills keeping up the pace of the dialogue and action. If you get a chance to go, do it.

When the sun finally peeked out, the CG and I decided to join the Clapham crowd on the streets for a wee tipple before we grabbed dinner at Osteria Antica Bologna.

The staff at Osteria are ridiculously friendly, to the point where you can't help but grin back at them whenever you speak. And hey, the food ain't bad either.

Bruschetta al pomodoro / Toasted Italian bread with fresh tomato, basil and garlic

Actually, I'd forgotten how good bruschetta can be - I think Osteria may have reignited a latent passion.

Costolette di agnello alla scottadito e Parmigiana di melanzane / Char grilled lamb cutlet with baked aubergine Parmigiana

Tonnarelli al ragu’ di cinghiale / Fresh black pepper spaghetti with wild boar ragout

It was a great choice for a casual meal, and the family-run restaurant vibe made it a lovely, relaxed evening.
