London Restaurant Reviews : Rosso Wine and Food Experience

We have all heard of Bottomless Brunch before. But what if I told you of a place where alongside free flowing fizz, there is bottomless food on offer as well? As I discovered recently, the Bottomless Brunch menu at Rosso Wine and Food Experience does exactly that. Created by a couple of like-minded friends from Milan,…

Best Places to Eat and Drink in Venice

For food lovers, finding a more-than-decent spot to eat in Venice is a minefield. Being a popular travel destination, there are plenty of overpriced tourist traps that will want your Euros and leave you shortchanged. Luckily for us, during a recent visit to the city, our AirBnb host turned out to be an ex-restaurant manager…

London Restaurant Reviews : Firebrand Pizza

Disclaimer: I was invited to review the below restaurant and our meal was complimentary but all opinions and photos are mine.  Firebrand is a relaxed and informal pizza place in Marylebone, quite close to the train station. Surrounded by restaurants, gastropubs and private residences, it is a refreshingly humble hangout compared to its poshed up…

London Restaurant Reviews : Cafe Monico

Disclaimer: I was invited to review the below restaurant and our meal was complimentary but all opinions and photos are mine.  I was recently invited by Cafe Monico to try their lunch menu. Cafe Monico is owned by Soho House Group so needless to say expectations were riding high on this one. Other notable restaurants…

London Restaurant Reviews : Olley’s Fish Experience

Disclaimer: I was invited to review the below restaurant and our meal was complimentary but all opinions and photos are mine.  A few weeks ago, we were hosted by Olley’s Fish Experience, a fish and seafood restaurant located in Herne Hill, South London, opposite Brockwell Park. Olley’s is a bit of an institution. It started life as a humble…

Best Places to Eat in Porto

Ever since our trip to Lisbon last year, Porto had crept up quite high on my list of places to visit next. This relatively under-the-radar city in Portugal has now risen to the forefront of everyone’s travel goals. This year, as an extended birthday celebration and thanks to some awesome January deals by easyJet, we…

London Restaurant Reviews : Tamashii

Tamashii is a relatively new restaurant near Kings Cross, offering Pan-Asian cuisine. The sprawling space occupies what used to be a buffet restaurant. The interiors are mostly low-lit, punctuated by stylish neon signage adding pops of colour and vintage party vibes. We kicked things off with their relatively small but exciting sounding Eastern Inspired Cocktails…

Celebrating my Birthday in Style

My birthday falls on the coldest, most depressing month of the year – January. Not only is everyone broke after Christmas, but most are marking #DryJanuary, which doesn’t leave much scope for celebratory drinks… which is why I make it a point to celebrate it even more, doing something that I love most (eating) and…

My Top Picks for Food in Dunedin

I recently visited Dunedin, New Zealand for my Christmas holidays 2018. Kris grew up in Port Chalmers (a small town just outside of Dunedin city) and went to the University of Otago, so it was a good opportunity to explore where he grew up. As a city, Dunedin has it all. The centre is a thriving,…

A Christmassy Indian Supper Club

2018 has definitely been the year when we re-discovered supper clubs. My initial hesitation with attending one of these is that you never know what to expect and it can go in either direction. By nature, these are one-off events so there is no benchmark or reviews to research beforehand. However, having been to a few this year, I can…

London Restaurant Reviews : Las Banderas

Kris and I love Spanish cuisine and we love our weekend brunches. So when the opportunity came to combine the two, we were definitely on to it! Las Banderas is a Spanish-themed restaurant specialising in tapas, with branches in Soho, Fenchurch Street and Farringdon. It was formerly MásQMenos but the owners wanted to distinguish this particular…

London Restaurant Reviews : Umame Kitchen and Bar

Umame started life as a Pan-Asian restaurant but quickly metamorphosed into a restaurant specialising in contemporary cuisine, based on seasonal ingredients. Located on a quiet high street of Hampton Wick, it stands out from the neighbouring pubs, curry houses and takeaway joints with its sophisticated fare, curated cocktails list and refreshing interiors. They have a range of menus on…
