Then in the distance I heard the bulls. I began running as fast as I could. Fortunately I was wearing my Italian Captoe Oxfords. Sophisticated yet different; nothing to make a huge fuss about. Rich dark brown calfskin leather. Matching leather vest. Men's whole and half sizes 7 through 13. Price $135.00

The other day wandering around Chalk Farm after a warm and sunny afternoon at Primrose Hill we ended at J. Strange name for an Italian restaurant, small, fast pace, and noisy in a really relax and laid back area. 

English breakfast Italian cuisine?
We got a scialatielli salsicce e porcini and linguini ai frutti di mare. The scialatielli is typical pasta from Naples, the sauce a base of fresh Italian sausage, a cream of porcini mushrooms, Parmesan shavings, and drizzles of truffle oil. That does sounds amazing isn’t? However, lacked seasoning, the sauce was bland, not even the sausage helped. 

Salsicce e porcini
Frutti di mare
The frutti di mare, with tiger prawns, mussels, calamari, baby octopus, and clams in a tomato sauce. It was superb, perfectly balance the sauce had a depth flavour. 

Final look at the linguini
Classic Italian cuisine, not amazing though, I guess if you are in the area you might try it but not worth the trip just for that.
