London Restaurant Reviews : Scarlett Green

For avid brunchers and foodies of London, Daisy Green needs no introduction. Their signature Aussie-inspired cafés are a force of nature as far as weekend breakfast is concerned. I had already been to one of their quirkiest cafés, Darcie and May Green, some time ago. This time we went to their newest outpost and for a…

London Restaurant Reviews – The Jones Family Kitchen

One of the best things about food blogging is meeting the hardworking and passionate people behind some of the amazing restaurants we dine in. Anna (one third of the team behind The Jones Family Project) and I had exchanged a dozen Instagram messages after our first visit to their Shoreditch branch. I was raving about their food…

London Restaurant Reviews : Neptune

The opening of Neptune has created quite a stir in the London restaurant scene recently. Presented by the enigmatic duo of Margaret Crow (stylist-turned-restaurateur) and Brett Redman (Jidori, Elliot’s) who together gave us The Richmond in Dalston, they are now combining forces again to recreate the same magic in this new collaborative venture. Housed inside…

London Café Reviews : Nordic Bakery

My husband Kris discovered Nordic Bakery before he discovered me. He is the one who introduced me to their divine Karelian Pies (Finnish pasties) and I have been a fan ever since. So, when Nordic Bakery’s lovely Marketing Assistant Aurora invited us to review their new lunch menu as well as try their other baked…

London Restaurant Reviews : The Grill at The Dorchester, Mayfair

I love my bestie M, especially her fondness for luxury hotels and restaurants. Thanks to her enthusiasm for fine dining, we have now dined at The Lanesborough, Flemings and now The Dorchester. May this tradition long continue. First impressions of The Grill were pretty impressive, right from the entrance lobby where an extravagant bouquet of blooms…

London Restaurant Reviews : Fera at Claridge’s, Mayfair

Last weekend, as I sat in my living room, writing this blog, on a gloriously sunny Saturday, the rest of the world around me was getting super excited for the Royal Wedding. Yet, somehow I couldn’t help but feel that the food that we enjoyed at Fera was nothing short of gastronomic royalty. Through the…

In the second part of my series of Budapest blogs, I want to take you to the places I discovered during my short stay in this fabulous city. Budapest as a city is cool, casual and urban with chilled out vibes. The downtown is filled with lovely cafés, restaurants and bars. Food and drinks are…

Hotel Review : Continental Hotel Budapest

Isn’t it great when a decision you make on a whim turns out to be one of the best decisions ever? Our choice of Continental Hotel Budapest was exactly like that. To cut a long story short, a last minute change of plans meant that we ended up booking this place without our usual in…

London Restaurant Reviews : New Menu at Blue Print Café

D&D London’s Blue Print Café has been in operation for some time now. Recently they acquired a new Chef Patron, Mini Patel, previously of The Pointer restaurant in Brill. Well, Brill’s loss is London’s gain. We had the good fortune of tasting the delicious food dished out by this talented and ambitious chef a few weekends…

London Restaurant Reviews : Ardiciocca

As winter turns to spring, Kris and I are aiming to lighten up our meal choices. With this in mind, newly opened Ardiciocca (meaning artichoke in Italian) was the perfect place to visit last weekend. It is hard to believe but the owner Roberto Costa owns four other restaurants dedicated to steak and Italian butchery…

London Restaurant Reviews : Céleste

It was that time of the month again! I am talking about my monthly catch up with my bestie M. She had picked Céleste, part of The Lanesborough, for our April rendezvous point. We booked their Set Menu at £39 which included three courses, a glass of champagne each, coffee and canapés through Bookatable. For…

London Restaurant Reviews : Bluebird Café White City

Shove over Battersea Power Station, it seems the next stop for leading restaurants to set up shop is White City. The newly developed Television Centre is slowly transforming into a destination for foodies. Leading the bandwagon and one of the first to take residence is the second outpost of the Bluebird Cafe. After an iconic…
