TRIED AND TESTED | Marks and Spencer’s New Indian range

How do M&S keep rolling out new ranges without us realising what old products have been ditched? They must be replacing something, right? Surely there’s not enough room for both the old and… Continue reading

Weigh To Go! | Vico, 1 Cambridge Circus, London, WC2H 8PA

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

Cucina Asellina revisited | ME London Hotel, 336-337, The Strand, London WC2R 1HA

Our wallets were still suffering from post-Christmas over-spend trauma, we’d had an unsettling week at work and we really couldn’t be bothered to re-start our ongoing DIY projects. But maybe the biggest reason… Continue reading

Vapiano, Bankside, 2, 90b Southwark Street, London SE1 0FD

by

We first discovered Vapiano on one of our visits to Sweden, when our budget was low and we couldn’t afford to spend a fortune on a meal, which is pretty unavoidable in Stockholm.… Continue reading

Dalla Terra, 25 Slingsby Place, St Martin’s Courtyard, London WC2E 9AB

by
