Hotel Review : Continental Hotel Budapest

Isn’t it great when a decision you make on a whim turns out to be one of the best decisions ever? Our choice of Continental Hotel Budapest was exactly like that. To cut a long story short, a last minute change of plans meant that we ended up booking this place without our usual in…

London Restaurant Reviews : New Menu at Blue Print Café

D&D London’s Blue Print Café has been in operation for some time now. Recently they acquired a new Chef Patron, Mini Patel, previously of The Pointer restaurant in Brill. Well, Brill’s loss is London’s gain. We had the good fortune of tasting the delicious food dished out by this talented and ambitious chef a few weekends…

London Restaurant Reviews : Céleste

It was that time of the month again! I am talking about my monthly catch up with my bestie M. She had picked Céleste, part of The Lanesborough, for our April rendezvous point. We booked their Set Menu at £39 which included three courses, a glass of champagne each, coffee and canapés through Bookatable. For…

London Restaurant Reviews : Darcie and May Green

The Daisy Green Collection are a prominent fixture on the London Brunch scene. Their collection of classic Aussie-style, breezy cafes serving fresh and healthy food has given us more reasons why we needn’t bother to get that frying pan out every Saturday morning to cook breakfast. My first experience of the Daisy Green Collection happened…

A Stylish Afternoon Tea at Flemings Mayfair Hotel

It was a wintry 2018 weekend in London when we had the famous visit from the Beast from the East that covered the land in snow. My bestie M and I exchanged several texts trying to decide whether to stay in bed or brave the icy weather for our Afternoon Tea reservation. After much deliberation, we decided…

London Restaurant Reviews : Pi

Hands up if you like pizza! Well, I don’t. Which is why Kris was surprised when we were booked to go to a pizza place and he wanted to check my temperature to see if I was unwell. But being a food blogger, once in while, I like to step out of my comfort zone….

London Food Review : Mango Tree

Before Somsaa and Smoking Goat, there was Mango Tree. From the moment I enter, I feel I have stepped back in time a little bit. The classical vibes of this place remind me of a time when dining out was a sense of occasion. The restaurant is cavernous, occupying a prime location in London Belgravia….

London Food Review : Fancy Crab

With a name like that, it is pretty obvious what this place is all about. Upon entering, I am immediately attracted to the striking blue and bright orange upholstery that contrasts against the dark wooden floorboards, breaking up this well-lit space. There is a hidden symmetry to the design scheme (interiors by DesignLSM) which I…

London Food Review : Brunch at Mac & Wild

Kris and I were both really looking forward to our brunch at Mac & Wild. For various personal reasons, we had previously moved our reservation three times, so when the day finally came, we were ready for it! On a sleepy Saturday, we made our way to Devonshire Square. Being a City location, it was…

London Food Review : Bright Courtyard Club

Nothing else quite hits the spot than some good old Chinese grub. Kris and I realised one day that we seldom go out for Chinese food anymore. Maybe we are still haunted by our past of late night drunken visits to Leicester Square, gorging on greasy, all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet and hating ourselves the next day….

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…

Luxury Brunch at Aquavit

Aquavit has long been on my list of must-visit. Some of my favourite London food bloggers (and part-Swedish) Catch52 and Marjanfocus have written extensively about this place, which aroused my interest even further. Having visited Stockholm this time last year, I was craving some Nordic-inspired cuisine and Aquavit seemed like just the ticket to send…
