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 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…

My Top Picks for Food in Dunedin

I recently visited Dunedin, New Zealand for my Christmas holidays 2018. Kris grew up in Port Chalmers (a small town just outside of Dunedin city) and went to the University of Otago, so it was a good opportunity to explore where he grew up. As a city, Dunedin has it all. The centre is a thriving,…

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…

My Travel Guide : Top Places to Eat and Drink in Budapest

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…

London Restaurant Reviews : MeatUp Chelsea

Amidst all the grave news about restaurant closures, when one of your favourite neighbourhood restaurants opens a second branch in a prominent location such as Chelsea, there is definitely a cause for celebration. The first time we visited MeatUp was way back in 2016 when it first opened its doors in Wandsworth Town. It was…

London Restaurant Reviews : TraTra

Deep in the bowels of Shoreditch we discover this newly opened and intriguing sounding restaurant – TraTra (French term meaning a mix of traditional and contemporary). Part of the same management that runs Boundary Rooftop Bar, the concept of this place is modish French tapas, some that stick to the formula and some with modern…

London Food Review : Beer & Buns

Beer & Buns is an exciting new pop-up in East London. Loosely based on the concept of a Japanese ‘Izakaya’, it offers craft beers and cocktails, paired with delicious Asian food, against a background of rock beats. The atmosphere is thoroughly fun and casual. It is a perfect venue for after-work shindigs; letting your hair…

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…

London Food Review : Dishoom, Kensington

For a foodie, Dishoom needs no introduction. To me, this brand has revolutionised how Londoners today experience Indian food and has made it trendy.  It has also spawned dozens of lookalikes and similar concept Indian restaurants. This blog is not so much of a review but a homage to this institution and how it continues…

London Food Review : New menu at Chicama

I blogged about Chicama nearly a year ago (you can read about it here). But they have recently launched their new lunch menu so I thought it was time for a revisit. We visited Chicama at Monday lunchtime, so it was nicely quiet and we were seated straightaway. From the Starters Section, the first dish…

London Food Review : Sunday Roast, Hawksmoor

I think I have found it! The best Sunday Roast in London. In a city inundated with gastropubs, it is a steak restaurant that takes the cake (or meat, should I say) for me in terms of putting together an exceptional Sunday Roast. We have been to Hawksmoor before, but this was our first time…
