If you had to describe your blog in less than 15 words how would you do it?

Why did you start blogging?
I’ve always been an avid blog reader and spend most of my lunchtimes surfing the web, looking out for daily updates. I have this strange thing about ogling at mouth watering food photos while I eat my lunch and some of my favourites included Mid Town Lunch and Ideas In Food. At the same time, I love eating out and had been relying on existing blogs such as World Foodie Guide and more mainstream London guides like Time Out to find things to eat.
In my ‘real life’, I am sometimes away on assignment in pretty remote locations, and once I was at sleepy vacation spot in Wales, Milford Haven, for an eight week assignment. I didn’t really know anyone in town and was bored to death. I was on this ten days on four days off rotation every two weeks, and during those four days when I returned to London I was out binging on food every night, and so at that time I thought it would be a nice idea to write about the places I’ve been to during my ten quiet days in Wales to fill my time. I initially wanted to call my website ‘GastroCentric’ (I still would like to call it that..), of course, that was well over a year ago now, I’ve not been back to Wales since, I chose LondonEater.com in the end and I have been eating out consistently in London almost every other day.
