“Despite its name, the flavours could pack more punch” So…, Flavour Bastard. Where? Soho obviously! It sits quietly, unlike its name, on the former site of Arbutus. Wait, cross that off, it has a gold splashed door. Entering it you are greeted by a beautifully slick interior, if not a bit hotel lobby slick, as […]Read more "Flavour Bastard, Soho [International]"
I have somehow missed the Pizza train in London because I’ve only ever been to Franco Manca out of all these relatively new pizza chains. I do like pizza, in fact sometimes I crave the 2am pizza binge that comes with student life but after I went to Pizza Pilgrims I finally figured out what the […]Read more "Pizza Pilgrims, Soho [Pizza]"
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]"
When I heard the original Koya were to close down last year I feared that there would be nowhere else in London to have authentic Japanese food besides sushi and ramen (god forbid places like Taro, which I might or might not review). Thankfully they opened a sister branch, Koya Bar, right next door with a […]Read more "Koya Bar, Soho [Japanese]"
£10 for steak! That’s all it needs to get me in the door but for a long time that foot never went through those doors maybe for the fear of a long queue or maybe steak still feels like a payday meal but this time we were going, even if there was a queue! Luckily […]Read more "Flat Iron, Soho [Steak]"
For some reason I’ve never been to Pitt Cue Co. despite it having been on my bucket list since it opened a few years ago after a successful stint as a food truck. Buoyed by my coming trip, now current trip, to the US I thought it’d be a good time to compare the best […]Read more "Pitt Cue Co, Soho [North American]"
I confess, I’m a pretty “slow” food blogger so it’s taken me a while to get to this ‘pop up’, courtesy of Bone Daddies. Shackfuyu is only meant to be a year long pop up (wait, those two phrases don’t make sense together) but I hope it stays or I’ll have to get back into […]Read more "Bone Daddies Shackfuyu, Soho [Japanese]"
This was my second attempt at trying to score a table at the hugely popular Bao. Very rarely has a restaurant opened to universal praise and never ending queues so I had to go and see what the fuss was all about. Luckily on an atypical Friday evening there were only a few tables queuing before […]Read more "Bao, Soho [Taiwanese]"
Blanchette stands quietly in the rather crowded, in more ways than one can imagine, Soho scene. On a Saturday lunch the place was filled with a mix of families, couples, girlfriends, all sorts, tasting Blanchette’s version of French sharing plates. The Parisian-styled bistro has its niche polished to perfection from the front of house staff down […]Read more "Blanchette, Soho [French]"
