London Restaurants Review : Pastaio

Pastaio has been on my list of London restaurants to visit for quite some time. The more informal and breezy spot from acclaimed British chef, restaurateur and food writer Stevie Parle’s portfolio of London restaurants, it sits in the midst of tourist haven Carnaby Soho (very near my other favourite seafood restaurant Claw) and specialises…

London Supper Clubs – A Vegan Ayurvedic Supperclub

I was recently invited to an Indian Vegan supperclub co-hosted by Chef Saurav Nath (formerly of Michelin-starred Benares and Gymkhana) and Humayun Hussain (Co-creator, host and Food and Hospitality Consultant). You may recall the last time I attended a supperclub by this dynamic duo, back in Christmas 2018. Back then, I was impressed by the delicious food which was professionally…

London Supper Club Experience – Makan Malaysia

Malaysia is one of those countries that I came very close to visiting but never quite made it to. My brother studied in Malaysia for several years, but me, being a broke graduate back then, never got around to planning a trip to visit him (a decision I regret profoundly). I have also never tried…

A Homage to the Sunday Roast – Part 1

Kris and I are both big fans of the humble Sunday Roast. Nothing says bountiful meal and a Sunday well spent better than sitting down for a sumptuous roast with all the trimmings and lashings of gravy till you have reached food coma. I particularly enjoy my fat slabs of meat and glorious Yorkshire puds,…

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…
