Absurd Bird – Spitalfields

Bringing the soul-warming comfort food of the American South to London, if you’re looking for mouth-watering chicken running down your chops, then ‘absurd’ is the word. By absurd, I of course mean, Absurd Bird. I met up with The Food Whores to indulge ourselves in a chicken feast. By all means, you can go by…

Xu London

Xu is the latest instalment from the talented guys that brought us Bao, well known for their delicious steamed baos. Xu is more up market/classy, and I love it! I’ve eaten at Xu before and I knew whatever I ate was going to be good. So, I sat back, supped my cocktail whilst my friends…

Craft London

Stevie Parle’s restaurant, Craft, has bought a much-needed slice of glamour to Greenwich’s Peninsula. The food is rustic/glam (I made that up, it’s probably not even a thing), which stands out from a majority of chain restaurants at the o2 venue. The interior is designed by Tom Dixon, so if you’ve ever bought a candle from…

Ormer Mayfair

Shaun Rankin’s, Ormer in Mayfair has a menu influenced by the local produce of The Jersey’s shore. I’ve been wanting to hit-up this place for a while, and finally got the chance last week. Eating out can be an expensive hobby, so my friend and I are currently making our way through a list of…

Tang London – #StGiles360

I was lucky enough to be invited to dinner at Tang London, which is part of and situated in the St Giles hotel by Tottenham Court Road. The dinner was to launch the #StGiles360 experience and was hosted by hotelier, Abigail Tan and chef, Chen Ng. Globally, St Giles invited its guests to capture their…

Carluccio’s #360feast

After 17 years, Carluccio’s has relaunched its menu significantly, revamping old recipes and adding completely new dishes. Along with this they have launched a 360 feast to celebrate the menu change. I was excited to devour my way through a 7/8 course menu, which had all been specially selected by Chef Luciano Nastasi. Fortunately, or…

Masala Wala Cafe

It’s a Friday night, I’ve just stepped off the train from my daily commute and can’t be bothered to cook, what do I do? I head to Masala Wala Cafe of course. Run by mother and daughter, serving Pakistani cuisine this is by far the best place to eat in Brockley, South East London. Oh…and…

Homeslice – Old Street

I have wanted to go to Homeslice for some time now, after seeing the size of huge slices from fellow bloggers on Instagram. This week, a last minute impromptu dinner date landed me here and I honestly cannot believe I haven’t been before. Stepping inside you’re greeted by a burning furnace of fire, their massive…

Sushi Sho – Stockholm

Back in May last year I had to have a serious heart operation to keep this scoffer alive and kicking. Don’t worry and dry your eyes, its 2016 and I’m feeling good.  Knowing this was ahead of me I tried to sneak in a few trips away because I knew I was going to be…

Mr Bao

Another day means another scoff. This time my stomach was leaning towards Mr Bao in Peckham, and so glad it did. Bao is a Taiwanese street food or snack, delicious steamed buns consisting of different fillings from pork belly to shiitake mushrooms. Bao is bang on trend at the moment, and rightly so. If you…

Padella

What I love about pasta is its simplicity and how tasty and comforting it can be, especially when most dishes have so few ingredients. Less is more, they say. When saying simplicity, I’m not exactly at home rolling out some rigatoni or whatever pasta shape your mouth desires, it is a skill, but you know…

Miss Tapas

When I lived in the depths of Peckham, there wasn’t much going on. If you wanted to go to a half decent pub or get some food, we always had to head to Lordship Lane in East Dulwich. All of a sudden, it seemed I moved out of the area and the cool kids moved…
