Q1: What is your favorite restaurant in the city?
A: It used to be Tiffin up on Devon, as I am so crazy for Indian food that I was prepared to travel that far north. Now though, I have Indian Clay Pot just a 5-minute walk from my house. Located just by the Irving Park Brown Line stop, this is the best Indian food I’ve had since leaving the East End of London for North Center!
Q2: Who is your favorite Reside Rewards partner?
A: Always has to be The Globe Pub – a home away from home! It’s the premier location for football (soccer) from all around the world, 40 something beers on draft and home of my beloved Chicago Gooners (the Chicago branch of Arsenal FC supporters).
Q3: If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be?
A: Blade Runner. Saw it at the cinema three doors down from my childhood home at the age of 10 (yeah, my mum thought it was like Star Wars because “Han Solo” is in it!). It blew my little mind, and still does, every single time I watch it!
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe…”
Q4: You’re a huge comic fan. What was the last comic you bought?
A: Not the last I bought, but I am currently utterly obsessed with Darwyn Cooke’s comic book adaptations of Richard Stark’s “Parker” crime novels! Pure hardboiled noir!
Q5: Originally, you’re from London. If you could transplant something you love from London to Chicago, what would that be?
A: Proper Turkish lamb Doner Kebabs! Gyros just don’t compare!
Q6: If you could meet any figure from history, living or dead, who would it be?
A: I’d love to grab a beer (or six) with Dylan Thomas. My name sake, and I think one of the most gifted writers of all time. He saw the world’s beauty through a lens that I find intriguing, and no matter how bad things can be, there is always a sense of wonder.
