SKIP SORRENTO AND STOP AT NAPOLI

I wanted to take a few moments to share 5 reasons as to why Naples needs to be numero uno on your Italian Bucket List:- Nowhere else in Italy will greet you with its arms open so wide. Naples is incredibly welcoming. People really do go out of their way to help you there. Despite…

THE HALAL GUYS

Icebergers and non-Icebergers take note! Its all in their slogan; “We Are Different”, and they are. Our little troupe of Icebergers headed down to The Halal Guys to get some lunch and were pleasantly surprised at the freshness and tastiness of their menu. Let’s face it, this type of food has been done so many…

SAINT JAMES BACKPACKERS, LONDON

A fellow Iceberger and I passed through London recently to see some sights, catch up and enjoy the vibe of London’s various boroughs. We booked late via Iceberg BOOK in a property called Saint James Backpackers, mainly due to the location and proximity to Hyde Park. We stayed in a simple and clean dorm along…

TOTTO RAMEN

Apart from this being one of the coolest Iceberg meetings in Manhattan, the location was perfect. We all headed towards the respected Ramen bar “Totto Ramen” in Midtown West, and as seating is sporadic we all got different tables. You order before you enter and they place you at any free table. Most of our group…

MONOPOLY

Was a great event the other day for all the Icebergers who turned up. Monopoly at its best! Moral of the story? Don’t trust the quiet, newbie who took a monopoly really early and steadily collected and bankrupted the more deserved players (said entirely without bitterness…) Hook up to Iceberg for more events in NYC: Iceberg:…

10BELOW ICE CREAM

Ever tried the ice cream at 10Below? Developed from a Thai idea, made using liquid nitrogen (and magic) and served with speed and professionalism, the ice cream rolls at 10Below are definitely worth queueing for. That’s exactly what our Icebergers did, and after 15 minutes we got our chance. One of the chefs was so…

LEVAIN BAKERY

When we were on the queue outside of Levain Bakery, one of the Icebergers asked me (as I have been previously) to describe the cookies at this place in one word. Without hesitation, I shouted “orgasmic” – to which only one person in a line of 15 people looked at me like I was crazy….

FOOD FOR THE SOUL FROM ‘DOSA MAN’

I had heard of his food even before I knew what it was. Whilst I was living in Vienna, two of my New Yorker buddies had messaged me on a weekly basis with ostentatious descriptions of the “best tasting street food in NYC”. Finally they told me that it was South Indian-inspired fare, sold in…
