I started this blog for purely personal reasons and because I had an idea for a story based in Chelsea. I decided to follow that classic piece of advice, ‘write what you know’ and let it lead me into the blogosphere. What I hadn’t expected when I started clicking on ‘publish’ was that I would meet so many fantastic people on my journey and make some dear friends too.
One of them is Catherine from Lux Life blog. Catherine was one of the very first bloggers who I met when I started King’s Road Rocks. It was in the days before Little Man so there were plenty of bar reviews and bumping into each other in basement nightclubs. And over the years as the London food and drinks scene evolved, one thing stayed the same: Catherine’s love for Australia where she spent some time growing up. So it was of very little surprise to hear Catherine announce she was moving to Perth this year.
To raise a glass to Catherine’s exciting new chapter, Angie, Emma and I met with the lady herself at Coya. It was my first time at this Peruvian restaurant in Mayfair and I absolutely loved it. The food was great – Emma’s cherry dessert was the highlight as well as the plum sake – the atmosphere was lively and it was a great place to see Catherine off – on a high note. And from Catherine’s Instagram, you can see she’s having the time of her life!
Here are a few snapshots from the evening …
… I’d definitely recommend giving Coya a try.
