Taste of London: Summer Fun & Utter Foodie Bliss

If you love food, then Taste of London is an absolute must in your life. This year was the first time that I’ve been (or heard of it), but I can tell you now that it’s already in my diary for next year, and the year after, and the year after…

Eight over Eight: Cracking Pan-Asian, Especially on Sunday’s

A few Sunday’s back, Michael, William, Hash, and I, decided to have a ‘Sunday Fun Day’ at an old favourite of Michael’s & mine, Eight over Eight.

Bob Bob Ricard: Champagne at the Press of a Button

I have tried to book a table at Bob Bob Ricard many-a-time since first hearing about the infamous ‘Press for Champagne’ button positioned at every table. Yes, EVERY table.

Flat Iron: A Steak Dinner That’ll Make You Swoon

When someone first told me about Flat Iron I thought they’d got their facts wrong – a decent hunk of juicy steak, in London, for a tenner – surely not?! But they were right, and I was wrong.

Granger & Co.: The Most Popular Brunch in London

If you live in London, love food, or brunch, then you will have heard of Granger & Co. Owned by Aussie chef Bill Granger, the restaurant located in quaint Notting Hill is quite literally famous on the breakfast scene for its scrambled eggs and ricotta hotcakes.

Dishoom: The Modern Indian Food Taking London by Storm

Dishoom has been at the top of my ‘want-to-go’ list for AGES having heard only rave reviews from friends, but it always got side-lined as they don’t take reservations for dinner, which I always find a bit tricky! But the time had come.

8 Hoxton Square: Sensational Bread & Sharing Plates Galore

It was my good friend William’s birthday last week so he rounded up a small troop of foodies and lovingly guided us to 8 Hoxton Square for a celebratory meal.

L’Autre Pied: One Michelin Star Too Far?

A little while ago Michael was a real cutie and surprised me with dinner at L’Autre Pied, a one Michelin star restaurant close to Bond Street. Granted, he’d got a good deal through Groupon, but if you can demonstrate “it’s the thought that counts” AND get a good bargain at the same time, you’re just winning in my eyes.

Homeslice: More About London’s Best Pizza

Last TGIF called for pizza. Having frequently raved about Homeslice and promising some of my work friends that I would introduce them to the holy grail, there seemed to be no time like the present last Friday evening

L’Entrecote: Quick, Cheap & Tasty Steak

After my disappointing all-veggie meal at The Wild Food Café two nights prior, my inner carnivore was crying out to be unleashed and fed steak, chips & red wine.

The Wild Food Cafe: It’s Safe to Say I’m Still a Carnivore…

My darling school friend Alice met me last Wednesday for the most overdue catch-up in the history of mankind.

Roka, Charlotte St: Roka’in it Up at My Favourite Restaurant

Last weekend Michael and I enjoyed an impromptu date night at my all-time, hands-down, a-million-times-over, favourite restaurant in London, Roka Restaurant on Charlotte Street. But this time, it was different.

Hotbox: American BBQ with a Filthy Delicious Dessert

Hotbox is relatively new on the restaurant scene, having opened just last December. Considering mine and Michael’s love for BBQ’ed meat, and that Hotbox is walking distance from both my home and work, it’s almost shameful that it took us so long to get around to making a visit.

The Dorchester: Afternoon Tea & Bubbles For a Queen

I was a little slow on the ‘advance booking’ of Mother’s Day celebrations this year, so despite trying to find a suitably fitting option to celebrate my favourite lady two weeks before the big day, I was coming up empty.

Tom’s Kitchen: A Scrumptious Brunch with My No.1 Lady

Last Sunday was a big day in the diary for me. I was finally getting around to performing my daughter-ly duties and celebrating my mother for a belated Mother's Day.

Paris: Come Dine With Us

Michael and I managed to squeeze in 4 ‘proper dining experiences’ in our long Easter weekend to Paris, each of which I have reviewed and elaborated on in this post for anyone who wishes to share our Parisian food journey.

Chez Elles: A Truly French Experience on Brick Lane

Michael and I and our duo in crime had been planning our first double date for some time. All good friends and lovers of food, there was nothing to do but pick a good restaurant.

Mildred’s: Vegetarian Food that Deserves its Hype

My nearest and dearest school friend Zoe and I were horribly overdue a catch up. It had been so long that we needed to do it right. I had heard many good things about Mildred’s plus, of course, trusty tripadvisor reviews assured me that my friends weren’t exaggerating.

Northbank: Great British Grub in a Gorgeous Setting

Northbank: Great British Grub in a Gorgeous Setting

Northbank is a restaurant that I have frequented in the past and, although excellent, it was on the more expensive side of things. Hence, when I came across an Opentable offer for 50% off food, I jumped at the chance of a more purse-friendly revisit!

Franco Manca: Stupidly Cheap & Extremely Tasty Pizza

On a freezing Friday evening, Michael and I joined the rather impressive queue that had formed outside Franco Manca in Brixton Market.
