Restaurant Review – The Reindeer Burger at The Red Lemon

Come mid-November every eating establishment begin to introduce their repetitive festive menus which means turkey, turkey and more turkey. This inevitable turkey-overload usually results in me dreading the sight of my Christmas dinner come December 25th. So you can imagine my relief when I heard about The Red Lemon in Notting Hill dishing up a Reindeer burger for it's customers...

Roka: The Japanese Blockbuster of a Restaurant – Review

Have you ever read a restaurant review that consisted of only one paragraph? Well that was my initial thoughts on how to write this review for Roka (Canary Wharf), due to the simple fact that, YOU MUST EAT THERE. However no one wants to read one paragraph do they? No I suspect you want me to tell you about the amazing...

London Restaurant Review: Steam & Rye

I'm always excited by a new restaurant opening, especially one   We went to sample the newly opened prohibition style, Steam and Rye in the City.

Review of the Quantum of the Seas

When I found out I was going to get to stay on a massive cruise ship I was over the moon, even though I thought "isn't it going to be full of old people". After getting aboard this bad boy boat I realised my idea's of what a cruise ship was, is totally outdated. Did I have a great time? No!...

Restaurant Review – Mamounia Lounge: A Middle Easten Gem In the Heart of Mayfair

Along the affluent Curzon Street in Mayfair lies one of London's many Middle-Eastern haunts, Mamounia Lounge. Middle-Eastern cuisine is becoming increasingly popular amongst British diners demanding deliciously seasoned delights such as Hummus, Falafel and Baklawa so on Saturday I went to see what all the fuss is about! Upon approaching Mamounia Lounge in Mayfair you are greeted by the...

Restaurant Review – Dirty Bones

Quirky, loud and un-apologetically brash food spots are very popular in London right now; MeatLiquor, Bone Daddies et al pride themselves on serving London's cool crowd with delicious messy american dishes.

Sophisticated, intimate and relaxing atmosphere. Welcome to Boisdales in Canary Wharf

Its hard to find a perfectly romantic and sophisticated restaurant thats also relaxed and intimate enough to have an enjoyable yet unique evening. Boisdales however, does just that.

Review: LIMBO

Somewhere between rapture and damnation lies the world of LIMBO. A fantastical cosmos of fire eating, gravity defying chaos which beckons you inside with a lustful grin. LIMBO is a unique blend of circus, gig and general jaw dropping antics which leave the audience riveted and slightly perturbed. Watching supposed human beings bend themselves in half, scamper up poles and...

REVIEW: Foxcroft and Ginger, Whitechapel

Foxcroft & Ginger Whitechapel

London is known for taking places known as 'cheap and cheerful' and turning them 'expensive and elitist' but the Whitechapel area on the edge of Shoreditch has escaped all these tags. The main high street of Mile End Road has escaped all these tags and managed to achieve a happy medium in 'affordable and amiable'. It's still easy to...

Trade, Shoreditch

When we went down to Trade on Commercial Street we had to poke around under scaffolding to find it and that's both a pity and sneakily useful, because it really is a hidden gem. While the building work is probably going on for a bit longer (on the floors above and quite quietly) the cafe itself is a finished masterpiece....

Review: Manhattan Grill

I spent many years refusing to eat steak, because it was just too chewy. So I played it safe with chicken, and lamb, until one day I was persuaded to try my then boyfriend's steak, and it was great, little did I know the ins and outs of a great steak, how well its cooked, how long its been...

REVIEW: Zumbura, Clapham

I may be the biggest fan of South Indian food London has – it's a habit I picked up from my favourite eatery as a student and I am so happy to be able to share somewhere in London you can go to enjoy the way I always have. Zumbura is an exceptionally pretty open cafe and restaurant off...
