London Restaurant Reviews : Gamma Gamma Soho

Disclaimer: I was invited to review the below venue and our meal was complimentary but all opinions and photos are mine.  When Gamma Gamma Soho first entered our Instagram lives, I was quite impressed with the look and feel of this place. Taking over a site formerly occupied by Bó Drake, this newly opened restaurant…

London Restaurant Reviews : Casse Croûte

Do you believe in love at first sight? I believe that with Casse Croûte it was. I can’t remember where I read or heard about this place, but walking down Bermondsey Street on our way to another fabulous restaurant (Flour and Grape, if you must know), I happened to stumble upon this cozy and characterful…

London Restaurant Reviews : Buns and Buns

Disclaimer: I was invited to review the below venue and our meal was complimentary but all opinions and photos are mine.  Buns and Buns had been popping into my Instagram radar fairly regularly so my curiosity was well piqued about this new London opening. An invite from their Marketing team to review the food seemed…

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…

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…

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…

Celebrating World Vegan Month with Foxlow

I have a soft spot for Foxlow. For me, it sits somewhere between a hip neighbourhood eatery and an upmarket casual restaurant with a lot of pizzazz. And depending on what I feel like doing (a relaxed brunch, cozy date or Sunday roast), this versatile place always fits in with my plans. This is my…

London Restaurant Reviews : Leila Moroccan and Lebanese Cuisine

Leila is a family-run Moroccan and Lebanese restaurant located in a quiet, leafy suburban neighbourhood close to Ealing Common. The first thing that strikes us about the place are the brightly colourful and intricate details and shimmering knick knacks that create a Middle Eastern/North African ambience to match the cuisine. They have a fairly spacious…

London Restaurant Reviews : Gunpowder

I do love an Indian restaurant that plays Bollywood music. Not the populist cheap item songs (Google it) but the classic melodious numbers that play quietly in the background. They stir up sweet memories of growing up, listening to these songs; the nostalgia warmly tugging at your heart. My feelings within the first few minutes…

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 : 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….
