London Restaurant Reviews – Galley

Galley is one of those wonderful neighbourhood restaurants that locals don’t wish you to find out about, like a best kept secret. Located on Upper Street near Angel, it occupies a spot¬†surrounded by a mix of chain and boutique restaurants. The restaurant is owned and operated by Oriona and Marcel, a brother-sister duo. Marcel, who…

London Restaurant Reviews : Claw

One of the biggest benefits of food blogging is getting to eat some of the loveliest food and meeting some awesome people from the hospitality industry and Instagram community. The downside is an expanding waistline and a shrinking wallet. Contrary to popular belief, I pay for the majority of my meals so I have to…

London Restaurant Reviews : fish!

As a regular visitor to Borough Market, I have walked past fish!¬†countless times. Peering through their glass windows, it always seemed packed and buzzy. By sheer luck, I recently won a meal with them via Instagram which gave me a chance to finally step inside. The conservatory-style restaurant has an alfresco section, but majority of…

London Restaurant Reviews : Neptune

The opening of Neptune has created quite a stir in the London restaurant scene recently. Presented by the enigmatic duo of Margaret Crow (stylist-turned-restaurateur) and Brett Redman (Jidori, Elliot’s) who together gave us The Richmond in Dalston, they are now combining forces again to recreate the same magic in this new collaborative venture.

Do yourself a favour, don’t read this post. Just go and book a table, as at the end of the three minutes (or however long a time it takes to get to the bottom of this one), I will be saying precisely that. TCS specialises in fire-roasted meats and seafood. The seafood connection is obvious,…

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. We found ourselves on their opening night, taking refuge from the cold outside and soaking in their tasteful interiors designed by Macaulay…

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…
