Summer In The City | HKK’s Xiao Shu And Da Shu Menu, 88 Worship Street, London

One of our standout meals over the years was the incredible 10-course Chinese New Year celebratory menu at Michelin starred HKK. So when we found out that the restaurant by the Hakkasan group… Continue reading

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

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

Yashin Ocean House makes miso happy | Yashin Ocean House, 117-119 Old Brompton Road, South Kensington, London SW7 3RN

OK, I’ll be up front from the start, Japanese food is not really our forte. The hot variety – yes. Sushi and sashimi – no. We like ramen, love a Katsu curry, I enjoyed… Continue reading

Undoubtably the best views from a hotel, ever | Shangri-la hotel & TĪNG at The Shard | 31 St Thomas Street, London, SE1 9QU

Staying the night in the Shangri-la at the Shard – the UK’s first elevated hotel was only ever going to be incredible. The Shard is one of our favourite buildings, despite my doubts… Continue reading

The Ritz – much more than just afternoon tea | The Ritz restaurant, 150 Piccadilly, London W1J 9BR

Being food bloggers we get to do a whole host of exciting things, meet interesting and passionate people, try a wide variety of food, stay in stunning hotels. Never in a million years… Continue reading

Other restaurants take note, this is how its done | Polpetto, 11 Berwick Street, London W1F 0PL

Restaurateur Russell Norman has said several times ‘In a restaurant, service is as important, if not more so, than food. You can rescue an average food experience with excellent service, but no amount… Continue reading

Duck and sugar | Min Jiang, The Royal Garden Hotel, 2-24 Kensington High Street, London W8 4PT

Nestled up high in the rather faded and archaic looking Royal Garden hotel is Min Jiang. A proper old-fashioned yet luxurious Chinese restaurant that boasts stunning views over Hyde Park. Layers of lush greenery… Continue reading

Smokin’ | Ember Yard, 60 Berwick Street, London W1F 8SU

We were looking forward to visiting Ember Yard, really looking forward to visiting. Marina had given it a gushing review in her Guardian column, and a respected friend in the hospitality industry said… Continue reading

Date night perfection | Ognisko, 55 Exhibition Road, London SW7 2PG

Ever stumbled out of a museum in South Ken in need of food? We have, although there are usually kids in tow so cocktails and Polish food is not likely to be on… Continue reading

Head to ‘tails | Rextail, 13 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4HJ

It seems to us that so many new restaurant launches in LDN are NYC inspired. Not that we’re complaining, we love New York. We can’t resist some of the ‘originals’ – Spuntino and… Continue reading

On top of the world | Aqua Shard, Level 31 The Shard, Joiner Street, London SE1 9SP

Sometimes it’s nice to go and have a proper grown-up meal. After two nights on the trot of satisfying our ‘dude food’ cravings, we sat down for something a little more refined. We… Continue reading

Blue Boar Smokehouse & Bar, 37-45 Tothill Street, Westminster, London SW1H 9LQ

It takes a lot to drag us away from the Kentish suburbs into London on a weekend. Yes we adore London, but the city is for work days, weekends are for home. But… Continue reading

STK London, 336-337 The Strand, London WC2R 1HA

On paper STK was everything we dislike in a restaurant. Starting with the name. There must be a few dodgy keyboards out there in the restaurant world at the moment that are missing their… Continue reading

Bob Bob Ricard, 1 Upper James Street, Soho, London W1F 9DF

After Hawksmoor, Bob Bob Ricard was a restaurant I had been wanting to visit for such a long time. And I mean really long, like two years long. Having been a regular in… Continue reading

MASH, 77 Brewer Street, London W1F 9ZN

When we first reserved a table at MASH we had visions of a whole section on the menu specialising in mashed spud. Wrong! MASH actually stands for Modern American Steak House, although steakhouse is… Continue reading

Heliot restaurant at the Hippodrome Casino, Leicester Square, 42-43 Cranbourn Street, London, WC2H 7AN

If we were to tell you that we had a great night out at the Hippodrome, you’d probably think we were a little crazy and/or drunk! To be honest if this review was… Continue reading

Roast restaurant, The Floral Hall, Borough Market, Stoney Street, London SE1 1TL

Ever since we started working on the South Bank, we have always wanted to visit Roast. It’s been on our restaurant bucket list for so long, finally we went. Roast is perched above… Continue reading

Champagne + Fromage 22 Wellington Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 7DD

To be honest I’m a little down at the moment… I’m just back from a wonderful break at Huntstile Organic Farm and had caught The Paralympic feel-good fever. So as the last firework… Continue reading

Four 0 Nine restaurant at Foodie Festival, Battersea Park, London

This will be one of our shortest reviews ever, not because the food’s bad – it’s actually very, very good… It’s just because we were at a food festival and the Four 0… Continue reading
