Lunch at Indonesian street food restaurant

May 8, 2019

Aldershot is a town most people avoid.

it is easy to see why, boarded-up shops, streets deserted, utter desolation. The result of decades of bad town centre planning by the local council.

There is though one reason to visit, lunch at Indonesian street food restaurant in Upper Union Street.

That was where I was heading.

Excellent Ayam Woku.

I was not the only one.

Three very attractive Indonesian women, who had travelled from Southampton, such the reputation the restaurant has.

I had one dish. When one dish arrived, |I thought that was their meal. No, more dishes arrived until their table resembled a mini-banquet.

This is how street food should be, not the rubbish served at Chow Down in Lincoln Castle or the travelling street food circus a few weeks earlier in the High Street.

Not only street food, this is how food should be street food or restaurant.

Simple food, tasty, no PR bullshit, no gimmicks, just quality ingredients, quality cooking.

Whilst I was there a man came in claiming to be from Google, or maybe giving the illusion he was from Google, he was wearing a Google jacket, claiming they needed to be on Google Maps.

They are already on Google Maps.

I suspected scam.

Flooding of Upper Union Street

July 27, 2017

All it takes is a brief heavy downpour for a stream to start  flowing down Upper Union Street.

The water flows in at the top, down the street, out the bottom, flows along the next street, where it then floods The Queen Hotel.

It is easy to see why. There are no drains.

Exactly the same problem as the flooding of Queensmead in Farnborough every time there is a heavy downpour.
