Alex

Alex Shebar is constantly reminded that he is an American. Of course, this is what happens when you move to London but haven't quite given up the accent (he does spell "favourite" with a 'u' and say, "rubbish," though.)

Born in Boston, and Yelp's former Community Manager of Cincinnati, he emigrated to The Old Smoke in 2012 and never looked back.

Alex now enjoys bad films, strong gin and a brightly coloured Instagram account. Hopefully you enjoy his posts about London and around the world (or at least, those previously mentioned brightly coloured photos.)

Hidden BBQ Heaven at Chicago Culinary Kitchen

“Wait, where are we?” We’re pulling into a strip mall in Palatine, Illinois – which, as I learned, is an actual place, despite it sounding like a fun city in some sort of unreleased John Hughes movie.

I have …

All You Can Eat Ramen at Furious Spoon!

Want to know what’s good? Ramen. Ramen is always good. Want to know what’s better? All you can eat ramen. All you can eat ramen is incredible! Now, you might be saying, “Yes, but that doesn’t exist, because it would be too good to be true.” This is normally correct. However, you forgot that March is National Noodle Month, and that means, there is such …

A Crabtivating Dinner at Truluck’s

It seems like in the last year or so, a trend has started exposing on my social media. One that I have no issues with at all. Yes, I know, trends can be infuriating, especially when everyone plus your mother is now hopping on board. However, this one is pretty amazing and I’ll tell you why: It gives me a chance to eat more delicious …
