Tonkotsu East, Dalston, London

Tonkotsu East, Dalston, London

This last week has a seen a whirlwind of flat viewings as I embark on my next quest to relocate. Since my work is now out east, there’s not so much reason to stay in Westminster, plus I’m lazy and love a commute to work […]

Jazzgir, Canary Wharf, London

Jazzgir, Canary Wharf, London

Theatrical cuisine, live jazz, top cocktails: that’s music to my ears. Jazzgir restaurant and cocktail bar brings an affable sense of poise and whimsy to the burgeoning evening scene of Canary Wharf. The name Jazzgir means ‘spoilt girl’ and were left feeling just like one. […]

Abokado, Whitechapel, London

Abokado, Whitechapel, London

Carnaby Street does events every now and then and we took advantage of a recent one for a cheaper (cough, bargain) dinner over at Dirty Bones. There’s three branches of Dirty Bones in Carnaby, Soho and Shoreditch. Their menu is New York style American comfort […]

My Old Dutch, Holborn, London

My Old Dutch, Holborn, London

My Old Dutch might not feel like a proper Dutch pancake house, but bloody hell, these pancakes are huge. That might apply to the savoury varieties, it was an intense experience. I felt like I was at one of those eating contests. Sweet pancakes might […]

London Food Map: Restaurants You Need To Check Out

London Food Map: Restaurants You Need To Check Out

For a while I’ve been collating all the restaurant recommendations I get from people so I have a ‘hit list’ of quality places in London I can check out. I was doing all sorts of spreadsheets, then realised something with a geographical aspect would be […]

Pinkberry, Angel, London

Pinkberry, Angel, London

Pinkberry is a Californian institution that reinvigorated the frozen yoghurt category in earlier years. It went from being one of those occasional desserts to something a bit more exciting. There is a misconception that these treats are “healthy” which they are definitely not. One serving […]
