London Restaurant Reviews : Little Kolkata

For a food blogger and lifetime Bengali, I actually find it quite difficult to write about Bengali food. Partly because I grew up with this cuisine and like any true Bengali out there, it is a deeply personal guilty pleasure; I just like to eat it, not talk about it. But my hesitation is also…

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 : 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 Food Review : Bistro Mirey

Bistro Mirey is a new restaurant in Fulham that offers French and Japanese-inspired dishes.

London Food Review : Wright Bros. Ltd.

For fish and seafood fans, Wright Brothers need no introduction. Their swanky new offshoot is in the snazzy riverside development of Battersea Power Station, fast becoming a foodie destination in its own right.

London Food Review : Bombay Bustle

One of the first restaurants that I blogged about in 2017 and till date continues to be on my list of top fine dining Indian restaurants in London is Jamavar. I chose to spend my birthday here and have very fond memories of the evening. You can recap my birthday experience here. Which is why…

This newbie, in collaboration with D&D London group, is located in the shiny new development of Battersea Power Station’s Circus West Village. The spacious…

London Review : The Allegory

Drake and Morgan own some of my favourite bars and restaurants in London. So the news of the launch of their newest baby The Allegory was met with squeals of delight. Within a week of their opening, Kris and I were there to check the place out. Located within the shiny development of Principal Place…

Barbecue and Bourbon at Miss P’s

The greatest joy I get from food blogging is discovering new and exciting food venues cropping up all over London and its suburbs. Since I moved to Croydon, I have been exploring a lot of Boxpark and Balham. So my happiness quotient increased ten-fold when I discovered through my fellow bloggers croydonfoodies that a new,…

New Opening : Flock, Tower Hill

Flock is a concept eatery that serves delicious Square Mile coffee during the day, but in the evening transforms into an intimate cafe-bistro, serving classic cocktails and artisan burgers. This under-the-arch space is lilliputian but somehow feels spacious – perhaps because they haven’t crammed it with lots of tables and chairs. The striking, black-and-white, hand-painted…
