London Restaurant Reviews : Kahani

Kahani is the first solo venture from Chef Peter Joseph, former Head Chef at Michelin-starred Tamarind. His new restaurant occupies a subterranean venue to which, coincidentally, we had been some three years ago when it used to be Canvas. I remember from last time the space being quite dark and awkward, which is why it was…

London Supper Club Experience – Makan Malaysia

Malaysia is one of those countries that I came very close to visiting but never quite made it to. My brother studied in Malaysia for several years, but me, being a broke graduate back then, never got around to planning a trip to visit him (a decision I regret profoundly). I have also never tried…

London Restaurant Reviews : Soho Wala

Another day, another Indian restaurant in Central London. So what’s special about this one, you might ask? Plenty, as Kris and I recently found out when we hit this place for a spot of lunch. Soho Wala is attached to The Courthouse Hotel and specialises in Indian Street Eats. But this is no soulless hotel…

London Restaurant Reviews : Kutir Chelsea

Kutir is an Indian fine dining restaurant that opened about six months ago. It is a cozy restaurant, set inside a converted Chelsea townhouse, on a quiet street off Kings Road. It is a joint venture between Chef Rohit Ghai (formerly of Gymkhana and Jamavar) and Abishake Sangwan. This powerhouse duo brought their combined experience…

London Restaurant Reviews : The National Café

This is my second visit the The National Gallery’s National Café. I was there when it first opened, exactly two years ago. You can read all about it here. An invite from Love Pops Ups London to review their new Sorolla menu meant that I was back again at this spectacular and elegant space. But…

Celebrating our Wedding Anniversary at The Pig Hotel

We recently celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary with a trip to The Pig Hotel’s latest opening at Bridge Place. After a train and short taxi ride later, we found ourselves on the grounds of the hotel, which is located just outside Canterbury, in the historic village of Bridge. The magnificent building is listed and was…

London Pub Reviews : L’Affaire, Wandsworth

Moving forward, I am starting a new blog series called London Pub Reviews, as Kris and I do find ourselves frequenting London pubs a lot so it’s time to tell you guys about what we find along the way. I compare L’Affaire to that person in school who you knew existed but never spoke to…

London Experiences – Play Dead London

Disclaimer: I was invited to review the below experience and our tickets were complimentary but all opinions are mine.  Close on the heels of my experience of The Murder Express at Funicular Productions, I had the opportunity again to try something quirky and a little bit different to my usual foodie escapades, but with the…

London Experiences – The Murdér Express : Jewel of the Empire

Disclaimer: I was invited to review the below experience and our tickets were complimentary but all opinions are solely mine.  In my forever quest to find new and exciting things to do in London, I stumbled upon Funicular Productions on Instagram and knew I had to visit. Their concept is everything I look for when…

A Homage to the Sunday Roast – Part 1

Kris and I are both big fans of the humble Sunday Roast. Nothing says bountiful meal and a Sunday well spent better than sitting down for a sumptuous roast with all the trimmings and lashings of gravy till you have reached food coma. I particularly enjoy my fat slabs of meat and glorious Yorkshire puds,…

London Pub Reviews – The Joker Croydon

Moving to Croydon suburbs after years of living in Clapham came with its fair share of adjustment. The switch from Zone 2 to Zone 5 wasn’t easy (if you know, you know). We missed our cozy neighbourhood pubs (The Plough, The Alma, The Ship) that were only a stone’s throw away from our apartment. These…
