Journey to the Underworld : Theatre Review

To mark Halloween week, I was invited to the latest immersive dining experience by Funicular Productions – Journey to the Underworld. Regular readers might recall my previous visit to their whodunnit series, The Murdér Express. I really love their triple offering of drama, design and dining as an experience. This theme of this production was…

P.F.Chang’s Asian Table : Restaurant Review

P.F.Chang’s Asian Table needs no introduction. They are a global restaurant chain with presence in the US and the Middle East. Nearly everyone I know has visited at least one P.F.Chang’s in their lifetime. Everyone, except me! Which is why I was glad to finally make it to the only UK branch of P.F.Chang’s Asian Table….

Cinnamon Kitchen Battersea

By now, you must know of my love for the Cinnamon Collection group of Indian restaurants. Over the last few years, I have dined in all of their London venues (Cinnamon Kitchen Battersea branch, Cinnamon Kitchen City, Cinnamon Club and most recently Cinnamon Bazaar).

Filipino Cuisine – Romulo Restaurant

Continuing with my exploration of global cuisine, I found myself with a bunch of food bloggers one evening at Romulo, a café and restaurant in High Street Kensington.

An Indian Supper Club by Chef Niku – Yaatra

One of the most exciting things about supper clubs is not knowing what to expect and being prepared to be surprised. It’s even better if it surpasses expectations. With Chef Niku’s Yaatra – an Indian supper club – it was a bit of both. The menu at Chef Niku’s Indian supper club was kept secret…

Soul of Shaolin – a Martial-arts Masterpiece

Soul of Shaolin is an internationally renowned and critically acclaimed martial arts-themed show that is currently running at Troubadour Wembley Park for a limited period only.

Two Lights : a London Restaurant Review

Two Lights comes from an illustrious pedigree: it is the sister to the Michelin-starred The Clove Club that made the list of World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2017. This more laidback and casual sibling is located on Kingsland Road. The decor is minimal and unfussy, perfectly fitting within the context of Shoreditch. The name Two…

Sri Lankan Supper Club : Mali’s Cooking

After experiencing a few Indian Supper clubs (Khao, Chakra, Thambis), it was time to venture further south and explore my first Sri Lankan supper club. Despite growing up in India and being so close geographically, Sri Lanka continues to firmly occupy my ‘someday bucket list’. Until then, I am exploring the country through its food….
