Am up to 90 countries now and just wondered if anyone had tips for where to find some of the more difficult ones to tick off, I guess in London would be most likely but anywhere in the UK. Some recent ones I’ve managed in the last year:
Colombia & Dominican Republic - both at La Bodeguita Deli inside the big shopping centre at Elephant and Castle
Ethiopia & Eritrea - both at Merkado restaurant on Caledonian Road (Ethiopia is probably pretty easy to find, Eritrea was a totally unexpected bonus). Enjoyed both with a lovely kebab-type lunch.
Israel - Bala Baya restaurant, nearest tube Southwark
Philippines - Cafe Romulo in Kensington, again with a really nice meal.
Grateful for any tips anyone has to help me get towards 100. According to the site the ‘easiest’ countries I need are Guatemala and El Salvador, followed by Luxembourg, Belarus, Hong Kong, Cambodia and Armenia!
Cheers everyone, some great tips here to help get my last ten. I haven’t actually been to GBBF for a few years and hadn’t really thought of it for Isle of Man or Guernsey, even though I remember making a point of using it to tick my last few counties one year. I might even have a chance to get to Reading.
A mate actually brought me an NA back from Iran not long ago, which was helpful. And it was a very pleasant surprise when Mozambique turned up in Nando’s a year or so ago!
I remember this being announced but still haven’t seen them in my local, though I rarely shop there to be honest.
If you’re ever in the Midlands, Isle of Man should be a relatively easy tick as Hooded Ram have bars in both Birmingham and Wolverhampton. Not been myself but one would assume they have their own beers on tap in both places.
