It Does Exactly What It Says On The Tin | Beef & Brew, 323 Kentish Town Road, London NW5 2TJ

Oh look, there’s another new London restaurant with a name that’s two random words paired together, yawn. Well, at least these aren’t not totally random, you know what you’re gonna get there. We… Continue reading

And I Think To Myself, What A Wünderlust World | Wünderlust At The Big Red, 30 Deptford Church Street, London SE8 4RZ

As Saff mentioned in her recent Dirty Bones review, we very rarely re-visit restaurants. There are an obvious few exceptions (MEATLiquor, The Diner, Dishoom and any of Russell Norman‘s places) but The Big… Continue reading

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner | Le Coq, 292-294 St Paul’s Road, London N1 2LH

Oops, Udon It again! | den, 2 Acton Street, Kings Cross, London WC1X 9NA

A break from the daily grind | London Grind, 2 London Bridge, London, SE1 9RA

Pizza Perfect | Pizza Pilgrims, 11 Kingly Street, London, W1B 5PW

OK, I’m not being mean,  but why do so-called Londoners go to Pizza Express? This is a question we ask ourselves frequently. There are tonnes of greater (and cheaper) restaurants, it’s not 1998… Continue reading

Viva La Revolution (Part 2) | Tapas Revolution Shoreditch, 58 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 8JW

Down by the riverside | Jackson + Rye Richmond, Hotham House, 1 Heron Square, Richmond, TW9 1EJ

We feared the wurst… | Herman ze German, 43 Charlotte Street, London W1T 1RS

I don’t think I’ve ever visited Herman ze German sober. The Villiers Street branch is in staggering distance of Charing Cross station and certainly beats a McDonald’s on the way home. Now they… Continue reading

Down Mexico way | New Mix-and-Match Plates at Benito’s Hat, 12-14 St John Street, London, EC1M 4AY

Could we ever run out of chickens? | Clockjack Oven, 14 Denman Street, London, W1D 7HJ

‘What’s for dinner mum?’ I’d shout down the stairs at 1.47pm on a Sunday after an epic teenage sleepathon. ‘Only chicken’ she’d reply. ‘Now get out of bed you lazy git!’. And she… Continue reading
