Tang London – #StGiles360

I was lucky enough to be invited to dinner at Tang London, which is part of and situated in the St Giles hotel by Tottenham Court Road. The dinner was to launch the #StGiles360 experience and was hosted by hotelier, Abigail Tan and chef, Chen Ng. Globally, St Giles invited its guests to capture their…

Carluccio’s #360feast

After 17 years, Carluccio’s has relaunched its menu significantly, revamping old recipes and adding completely new dishes. Along with this they have launched a 360 feast to celebrate the menu change. I was excited to devour my way through a 7/8 course menu, which had all been specially selected by Chef Luciano Nastasi. Fortunately, or…

Masala Wala Cafe

It’s a Friday night, I’ve just stepped off the train from my daily commute and can’t be bothered to cook, what do I do? I head to Masala Wala Cafe of course. Run by mother and daughter, serving Pakistani cuisine this is by far the best place to eat in Brockley, South East London. Oh…and…

Homeslice – Old Street

I have wanted to go to Homeslice for some time now, after seeing the size of huge slices from fellow bloggers on Instagram. This week, a last minute impromptu dinner date landed me here and I honestly cannot believe I haven’t been before. Stepping inside you’re greeted by a burning furnace of fire, their massive…

Sushi Sho – Stockholm

Back in May last year I had to have a serious heart operation to keep this scoffer alive and kicking. Don’t worry and dry your eyes, its 2016 and I’m feeling good.  Knowing this was ahead of me I tried to sneak in a few trips away because I knew I was going to be…

Mr Bao

Another day means another scoff. This time my stomach was leaning towards Mr Bao in Peckham, and so glad it did. Bao is a Taiwanese street food or snack, delicious steamed buns consisting of different fillings from pork belly to shiitake mushrooms. Bao is bang on trend at the moment, and rightly so. If you…

Padella

What I love about pasta is its simplicity and how tasty and comforting it can be, especially when most dishes have so few ingredients. Less is more, they say. When saying simplicity, I’m not exactly at home rolling out some rigatoni or whatever pasta shape your mouth desires, it is a skill, but you know…

Miss Tapas

When I lived in the depths of Peckham, there wasn’t much going on. If you wanted to go to a half decent pub or get some food, we always had to head to Lordship Lane in East Dulwich. All of a sudden, it seemed I moved out of the area and the cool kids moved…

Mele E Pere

Mele E Pere was opened by Andrea Mantovani and Peter Hughes, who met whilst working in the Michelin-starred Wild Honey. Having both grown up in northern Italy, they shared a dream of opening a Trattoria reminiscent to those of their childhood. Mele E Pere in English means ‘apples and pears’ and this reflects the window…

Picture Restaurant

Picture was the common dream of an Englishman, Irish man and a Scotsman. But unlike the one liners we heard as children, Picture is far from a joke. Before the opening of Picture, Alan Christie, Colin Kelly and Tom Slegg had previously worked together at the Michelin-starred Arbutus restaurant group. The guy’s aim was to…

One Canada Square

One Canada Square is located in Canary Wharf, in the lobby of what used to be, until 2010, London’s tallest sky scraper, also named One Canada Square. Tom and Ed Martin of the award winning ETM group, who are also responsible for Botanist restaurant and bar in Sloane Square, opened One Canada Square in 2013….

Blue Ribbon Sushi – New York

Last month I boarded a plane and jetted off to New York for a very quick visit. My favourite city, after London Town, I always get excited when visiting the ‘city that never sleeps’. Even though it was bloody freezing, I wasn’t going to let this ruin my trip. Everyone knows, or should know that…
