Cambridge!

Hello! I went to Cambridge! I stayed with juggzy. She is an excellent hostess, and I had a lovely time.

I went to lots of pubs: the Earl of Derby, the Osborne Arms, the Prince Regent, the Kingston Arms, the Cambridge Blue, the Punter, the Maypole, the Fountain Inn, the Panton Arms, the Prince Regent again, the Red Lion, the Unicorn, the Flying Pig, and the Carlton Arms.

I also had some decent Lebanese food at Ali Baba, some reasonable Vietnamese food at Thanh Binh, some good Korean food at Little Seoul, some tasty vegan ginger cake at Daily Bread, some not-very-good dim sum at J Restaurant, and a disappointing crepe at Le Gros Franck.

Much of this exploration was of course in aid of the Open Guide to Cambridge, which was in serious need of some updating. I discovered that lots of places had closed and turned into something else; the most exciting of these from my point of view appear to be Seven Days (previously Asia), Sesame (previously Kami's), and HK Fusion (previously Ugly Duckling).

If you're in or near Cambridge, or know someone who is, it would be lovely if you could sort of spread around the word about the Open Guide. As far as I can tell, there aren't really any foodbloggers in Cambridge, so it does appear to be filling a gap in the market, and of course it covers plenty of things other than food.

Also, juggzy and I are planning a Citi 1 bus route pub crawl for some time in the spring. There's a tentative Google map which may need some route correction. I'm going to see if I can persuade some tubewalkers to come along on this — handily, we will be stopping for lunch in a pub near Cambridge station, and the train from King's Cross only takes 50 minutes, so Londoners won't even need to take the entire day off work.
