London Restaurant Reviews : Brunch at Christopher’s

Recently, I joined fellow blogger friends Meg (of No Mean Feast) and Becca (of Becca Eats World) for a Saturday brunch in Central London. If you recall, last time we met was at the fab Cantina Laredo. This time, the choice of venue was Christopher’s, coincidentally in Covent Garden again! This was my first visit…

Afternoon Tea at Scoff and Banter

I was very fortunate recently to win an Afternoon Tea competition on Instagram. The prize was a free-flowing Afternoon Tea for two at Scoff and Banter, in their Canary Wharf location. This branch of S&B sits inside the Radisson Blue Edwardian London Hotel, in a quiet and suburban part of the Docklands. The interiors veer…

London Restaurant Reviews : Rosa’s Thai Café

Our first ever meal at Rosa’s Thai Café is a bit of a blur. Kris and I (both hammered from a big Saturday night out) stumbled upon the Spitalfields branch late one evening and gorged on their famous Drunken Noodles, which were pure carb comfort. True to its claim, it was the best antidote for…

London Restaurant Reviews : fish!

As a regular visitor to Borough Market, I have walked past fish! countless times. Peering through their glass windows, it always seemed packed and buzzy. By sheer luck, I recently won a meal with them via Instagram which gave me a chance to finally step inside. The conservatory-style restaurant has an alfresco section, but majority of…

London Restaurant Reviews : Louie Louie

Louie Louie is a friendly neighbourhood eatery in South East London. Opened 18 months ago, it is a café by day but turns into a casual restaurant and late night bar for the evenings. The interiors are bright, clean and minimal; there are swathes of white surfaces with splashes of orange to add some colour….

London Restaurant Reviews – Lokhandwala

Ever since its opening, I was mystified by Lokhandwala. I loved the look of their interiors on social media but I had heard mixed reviews of the food – some people loved it and some didn’t. So the best course of action was to try it for ourselves and form our own opinion. The good…

London Restaurant Reviews : Oslo Hackney

We were recently invited to try Oslo’s newly launched Summer menu. For those who don’t know, Oslo is an exciting bar and live music venue in Hackney that serves up good food, decent plonk and even better music. In terms of interiors, it has more East London industrial than Nordic vibes – volumes of low-lit…

Bloggers Afternoon Tea – Malmaison Hotels

Recently, I was invited to a Bloggers Afternoon Tea organised by Nicola King (East London Girl) and Nadia Evans (founder of Flavour Venue Search and one half of Mr. and Mrs. Flavour). For those who don’t know, Nicola is one of London’s top bloggers and an expert on the food and drinks scene in London….

London Restaurant Reviews : Zzetta

There is a new pizza place in town! But first, a bit of history. Zzetta occupies a corner of a site that was formerly the historic Rathbone Market, one of the most famous East End markets in the 90s. But the council sold off all the land for a £5 billion regeneration. As a result,…

London Restaurant Reviews : Chelsea Creperie

Chelsea Creperie is a casual, neighbourhood eatery that seems popular with the locals, judging by the sheer number of people stopping by to dine in or take away their homemade crêpes and gelato. They have a range of savoury and sweet crêpes on offer. The savoury ones are made of organic buckwheat flour and the…

London Pub Reviews : The Gladstone Arms

I have a soft spot for the Gladstone Arms. We discovered this place by accident whilst meandering aimlessly through the streets of Borough. Back then, it had been newly refurbished, taken over by a family and they were building their food and drinks menu. Cut to the present: when co-owner Megha invited us to try…

Vegan and Vegetarian dining at Foxlow

Close your eyes and tell me what’s the first word that comes to your mind when I say Foxlow. Chances are 9 out of 10 times it would be ‘meat’ or ‘steak’. But did you know that Foxlow do a killer vegan and vegetarian menu too? As an avid meat eater, I am personally challenging…
