Plum + Spilt Milk – Great Northern Hotel, King’s Cross, London

Plum + Spilt Milk – Great Northern Hotel, King’s Cross, London

I visited Plum and Split Milk off the back of this Hot Dinners offer I had. 50% off the weekend brunch menu price was enticing and the food and venue looked upper class to boot. It ended up being a bit snobby in service but […]

Konnichi-What?: 5 Tips for Travelling Japan

The biggest vacation of 2017 for me (other than the whole move to London thing) was a week and a bit away in Japan! And what a wild ride it was. Japan’s the kind of place where some inside information really helps when you’re traversing […]

Dirty Bones, Carnaby, Soho, London

Dirty Bones, Carnaby, Soho, 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 food, so it was one I had my eye on for some time. Also, I love the Carnaby Street area, it’s a nice little retreat from the crowds and tourist traps. So what did we order?

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 […]

Snoopy Cha-Ya Cafe, Kyoto

Snoopy Cha-Ya Cafe, Kyoto

This week I’ve returned from my final travel destination of the year (I think!), Japan. It’s always disheartening getting back into the grind of everyday life, but I have Christmas to look forward to. And looking through the pictures and fondly recalling good times is […]

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 immensely useful. So if I’m in a certain area, I’ll have some ideas on what’s around that’s good. My friend Joey also showed me how to make custom maps in Google Maps and -bam- the London Good Eatin’ map was born.

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 […]

Grab & Go, Westminster, London

Grab & Go, Westminster, London

A short review for Grab & Go is entirely appropriate as the whole experience is over in a snap. You genuinely walk into the cafe and out with a meal in minutes. Located in the corporate lunch hub of Strutton Ground in Westminster, the cafe […]

Roti King, King’s Cross, London

Roti King, King’s Cross, London

If you’re looking for the most authentic Malaysian cuisine in London, you can find it at Roti King at King’s Cross. Everything about this place is screaming authentic. Including the queue and the table service. The crowded setup and heat of the kitchen is found at many a hawker centre over in the East.
