Flower Power | Long lunch at Lima Floral, 14 Garrick Street, Covent Garden, London WC2E 9BJ

by

We don’t want to sound naive but up until a year or so ago we hadn’t tried any Peruvian food at all. All that I knew is that a friend of mine went… Continue reading

French burgers arrive in London | Big Fernand, 19 Percy Street, London W1T 1DY

by

London’s overrun with burger restaurants, surely there’s no room for any more, right? Well apparently we need another, but not another US import or those that have graduated from a street food background,… Continue reading

Taking the Biskie | Cutter & Squidge, 20 Brewer Street, Soho, London W1F 0SJ

by

We all know the saying ‘they look too good to eat’. Well the cakes at Cutter & Squidge definitely fall into that category. Luckily they also fall into the ‘taste far too good… Continue reading

Right up our Street | Union Street Café, 47-51 Great Suffolk Street, London SE1 0BS

by

When Gordon Ramsay‘s Union Street Café popped up on our work doorstep we couldn’t believe our luck. There was a huge buzz about the opening, rumours of David Beckham being involved and miscommunication… Continue reading

Family Sundays at Bocconcino, 19 Berkeley Street, Mayfair, London W1J 8ED

by

As we walked through the doors of Mayfair’s Bocconcino Charlotte (10) turned to me and mouthed: ‘It’s posh!’ As we took our coats off we admired the sweeping metal spiral staircase from the… Continue reading

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

by

The trend for Japanese food just doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Existing restaurants are opening additional branches, pop-ups are getting permanent sites and new launches are, if anything, gaining momentum. One of… Continue reading

Not just for members | Bedrooms at The Hospital Club, 24, Endell Street, London WC2H 9HQ

by

I commute to London every day, Monday to Friday and have done so for nearly two decades. But there’s still so much of this great city that Saff and I haven’t experienced. Yes,… Continue reading

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

by

By some weird coincidence we revisited the revamped Cucina Asellina at the plush celeb haunt ME London hotel exactly two years after the first visit. Although when I say we, I mean my… Continue reading

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

by

I’ve often perched at the bar at Tapas Revolution in Bluewater. Either by myself for a sweet glass of café bombón coffee (for a mid-shop boost), with the kids for a churros treat… Continue reading

The ShackMeister burger at Shake Shack | 24, Market Building, The Piazza, Covent Garden, London WC2E 8RD

by

We never need an excuse to visit Shake Shack in Covent Garden. But when we found out The ShackMeister was making its UK debut we were there in a flash. The ShackMeister is… Continue reading

A Perfect Ten (Courses) | Chinese New Year at HKK, 88 Worship Street Broadgate Quarter, London EC2A 2BE

by

If you’re a fan of Chinese New Year (it’s the year of the sheep if you’re interested), or even if you’re not, it’s impossible not to be impressed by the culinary journey offered… Continue reading

A Natural Selection? | Darwin Brasserie at the Sky Garden, 20 Fenchurch Street London EC3M 3BY

by

When the email came round at the day job that the Walkie Talkie (or 20 Fenchurch Street to give it its proper name) was opening up its top three floors to the public, there was… Continue reading

It’s too hot (hot damn) | HotBox, 46 Commercial Street, Spitalfields, London E1 6LT

by

We’d heard that HotBox, the latest BBQ restaurant to hit London, gets pretty loud (it certainly was on the launch night). So we rushed through any conversation on the way there, anticipating shouting over/at… Continue reading

Who needs cheese? We discuss The Flaming Iceberg, The New Special From Byron Hamburgers

by

A CHEESE-HATER’S VERDICT: OK, so I know I’m in the minority here (as usual) but hooray for Byron‘s latest special – The Flaming Iceberg that contains no cheese! Whoop! A burger doesn’t need… Continue reading

We Love Food’s Best (And Worst) Bits Of 2014

by

So, it’s that time of year where we sit back and reflect over the past twelve months. Some of the best things we’ve eaten we can still taste as clear as day when… Continue reading

Pass me a bottle, Mr Jones | The Jones Family Project, 78 Great Eastern Street, London EC2A 3JL

The Jones Family Project has a lot going for it – a prime spot on Shoreditch’s Great Eastern Street opposite The Hoxton hotel, meat from renowned butchers the Ginger Pig who supply the… Continue reading

A Good Old East End Rub-A-Dub | Draft House Birdcage | 80 Columbia Road, London E2 7QB

by

What do get if you take a run-down East End pub and let Charlie McVeigh (of the Draft House group) work his magic? You get the Draft House Birdcage! The pub is by… Continue reading

Winter warmers | Our favourite slow-cooked stews and casseroles in London, bookable with OpenTable

by

As soon as the temperature drops, the nights draw in, leaves turn red and begin to fall off the trees, all we crave is comfort and warmth. This comes mostly in the form… Continue reading

Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea | Bubba Gump, Unit 75 Trocadero, 13 Coventry Street, London W1D 7AB

by

Now don’t get me wrong, I love Forest Gump. It’s one of my favourite films. In fact it’s one of those movies that even when flicking through the TV channels at 1.06am, you… Continue reading

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

by

We’ve been to Jackson + Rye on Wardour Street numerous times. The first, back in December 2013 when they first opened to sample their brunch menu. More recently was to pop in for a nightcap when… Continue reading
