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…

London Restaurant Reviews – Bar Duoro

Good things come to those who wait. Bar Duoro has been on my radar for some time now. I have been quietly drooling at all their food photos on Instagram. But this year the desire to visit was further amplified by our trip to Lisbon. So this is not a review really but a celebration of…

London Rooftop Bars – Savage Garden

I love London summer, not only for the scorching temperatures it brings but also because the entire town zooms away on holiday. I tend not to go away; why would I when I have the perfect sunny temperatures in my own home town? There is no need to escape; what it also allows me to…

London Restaurant Reviews : Cantina Laredo

Regular readers of my blog and Instagram posts would notice that I am a big fan of Hot Dinners offers. When they announced an offer in collaboration with Cantina Laredo, I was intrigued. For £35 per person you receive a complimentary Margarita upon arrival, 5 sharing starters, a main course, side and a dessert. Also…

Revisiting Céleste, The Lanesborough

Recently I was invited to review the three course Menu Du Jour lunch at Céleste, the Michelin-starred restaurant at The Lanesborough. This was my second visit to the restaurant but the first for Kris. To recap, last time I was bowled over by their stunning interiors (who wouldn’t be!) and impressed by the food in…

London Restaurant Reviews – Bao Bao

This was our second visit to Bao Bao. For those who don’t know, BaoBao is a small eatery located inside Boxpark Croydon, specialising in Taiwanese Street Food. The first time we were there, we tried some of their baos and main dishes. So this time we decided to adopt a slightly different approach and order a…

Luxury Dining on board the Bustronome

Last week I had the pleasure of dining on board the Bustronome, a new and unique experience in London. An offshoot of the successful Bustronome Paris, the concept combines London sight seeking with luxury food and wine pairing, on top of a bus. In London this is being brought in collaboration with the popular (and…
