My last night of the month followed the last week of the month, watching re runs of Friends with the wind whistling outside. Not bad for the start of the most unsettled season amidst lighter nights out and an exciting couple of months ahead with friends, family and travel planned.
March was busy from start to finish, in the kitchen there were a lot of sandwiches and outside it there was a few new places of cuisines tried in varying parts of this vast city.
How was your March? What was the most memorable part of your month? Here is my month in pictures:

On a casual Saturday morning, my friend and I were drawn into Snaps and Rye, a Danish eatery in Notting Hill. A couple of friends walked in and ordered some food and the next day we were all plotting how to get back there, the food is well priced and so so tasty.
Trying Nepalese in my local area of Putney was delicious, the menu is varied for those who aren’t very acquainted with this cuisine. Munal Tandoori fun servers and tasty food if you’re ever in the area.
With Hawker House down to it’s last weeks for it’s winter market, it was worth the effort to get there with incredible food with lots of people enjoying the three floors of food, drink and company. We devoured the steamed sandwich buns and incredible tacos! Bring cash for this place.
Without a doubt, the most addictive thing in my lunch box this month was these Raw Chocolate Caramel Bars, perfect for a filling morning snack or last minute breakfast when you wake up late.
