If you’ve read my blog before you might have noticed one popular cuisine curiously missing from my reviews, Indian food. I’m not against eating Indian food but I rarely have the opportunity and even rarer do I decide to go for an Indian after years of having my taste buds desensitised by bland Indian takeaways. So […]Read more "Roti Chai, Marble Arch [Indian]"
Having been away from London for a while I missed the frenzy that was when Som Saa opened a few months ago. Maybe that was a blessing to a foodie like me since we didn’t have to face the long queues. On a weekday evening we got there around 6.30 and were seated in about 5-10 […]Read more "Som Saa, Spitalfields [Thai]"
Few places in London manage to cater for those dressing to the nines, and those in their threes, as well as Brasserie Zedel. On an early Saturday evening the lofty dining room, a beautifully decked out space plucked straight out of the Parisian Art Deco, had a mix of women in cocktail dresses, guys in […]Read more "Brasserie Zedel, Soho [French]"
Thai food is one of my favourites. I’ve been all over London (and beyond) to find the best that London has to offer. Recently, there seems to have been a resurgence to this mainstay in the London scene which, of late, has been slightly overshadowed by its Asian counterparts. One place, that has been on […]Read more "Smoking Goat, Covent Garden [Thai]"
Despite being Chinese I’m not a big fan of hotpot but Shuang Shuang’s novel concept of giving each diner their “personal” hotpot, which opened earlier on in the year, caught my interest. That interest was also partly to do with its location, at the corner of Chinatown, because Chinatown never has a “novel” restaurant – […]Read more "Shuang Shuang, Chinatown [Chinese]"
Hereford Road has been on my list for yonks! If there’s one place that is at the top of my “must go list” it’s St. John. So with the former head chef of St. John helming Hereford Road it immediately piqued my interest. But for a suburban panda there was rarely a chance for me to […]Read more "Hereford Road, Notting Hill [British]"
Its been a while. My 5th year uni project took over my life for the past few weeks so apologies for not keeping this blog up to date but now that’s over I have lots to update and some exciting travel news to share in the coming weeks! And here’s the first. After consuming countless […]Read more "The Frustrated Chef, Beeston [World Tapas]"
Sitting snugly on a corner of Columbia Road this unassuming restaurant is sibling to perennial fine dining favourite “Terroirs”. Despite spending an absurd amount of time walking up and down Kingsland Road and Regent’s Canal area a few years ago I had never actually walked past this place. And yes to all those out there […]Read more "Brawn, Bethnal Green [French]"
This was a feast of a lunch tasting menu and to pay homage to the “greatness” that it is I’ve written it out in all its full glory for you to peruse. note: the tasting menu has changed since my last visit but I’m sure is as good as it was when I was there. Snacks […]Read more "The Dairy, Clapham Common [British]"
Korean food found its spotlight a few years ago and doesn’t seem to have waned in London. For a long time London’s Korean food scene was skewed towards the traditional; the authentic dingy little eateries on St Giles Street or if you were diehard enough, in far flung New Malden. But recently eateries focusing on […]Read more "On the Bab, Covent Garden [Korean]"
