Junchan comes to London

[Friday 29th May]
Our friend Junchan came to stay with us for the weekend from this evening.
We met up with her near to Victoria station, and from there we headed to Noura for dinner. The food was good as always, but I'm starting to come to the conclusion that it is overpriced for what it is - especially the wine list. A bottle of Chateau Musar 2000 was an outrageous £48 a bottle. It's a third of that in shops, and so I imagine the wholesale price is probably somewhere in the region of 1/5th of that. So I avoided that, and went for some other Bekaa Valley wine which was frankly a bit disappointing (expensive though it is, I do really like Chateau Musar).
After that I took Junchan on a short walking tour of Belgravia punctuated, of course, with some of it's fantastic little mews pubs. Although we only actually went into one of these - the Nag's Head.
