Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Gay Hussar



The Gay Hussar, an Hungarian restaurant, has been open since 1953 and is located on Greek Street, Soho. It has more of a club atmosphere than restaurant being over 3 floors with 2 private rooms said to have held many private meetings.
  It is believed that its founder, Victor Sassie, once worked for M16 (secret service) as a spy when he was a chef in Budapest. Not sure how true this is but since opening, this eating place has attracted politicians, writers and journalists and has bookshelves crammed with political books and autobiographies.

  1. The Gay Hussar must be popular with a certain segment of society, especially in Soho. I ate goulash once. I was not really impressed.

  2. It would be kind of fun to eat there and wonder if the people at the next table were plotting or planning something....I'd probably try to eavesdrop.

  3. I've never had Hungarian cuisine before, this would be a fun place to try it! (Although I'd prefer a trip to Budapest...)

  5. Looks like an interesting place... Bet there are some healthy and robust conversations inside there... Talking politics right now in our country is something that is VERY hard to do---since many of us are quite opinionated and not necessarily on the same side... ha
