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 […]
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 […]
Sugar. Always the perfect pick me up for a busy afternoon and the gigantic cakes and desserts from Patisserie Valerie are loaded full of them. Not overly so, mind you. First opened in Frith Street, Soho, 1926 by Madame Valerie, there are now over 100 stores littered about the United Kingdom. It’s become one of the more prolific patisserie chains, offering a wide range of “lovingly handmade cakes” to the masses.
There’s nothing zen about this dish. It actually looked quite nice on the shelf, but I knew I made a mistake once I took my first bite. It’s the meat part which was the most disappointing, it’s a dry cut that doesn’t taste like chicken. […]
Dreams collide in the bacon naan roll at Dishoom. It was my most hyped up dish and it took me a few months to find my way to it. I was meeting a new friend and we had decided on checking on the Dishoom here […]
If you fancy a little fancy, head over to the Great Northern Hotel Bar (or known as GNH Bar). As the name suggests it’s part of the GNH complex and it brings a touch of glam for any after-work drinking affair. We headed in for some cocktails and ended staying long after to indulge in one of the bar “snacks”. Located near the King’s Cross station, GNH is a most handy London railway bar. It’s perfect for killing some time pre-commute or just on a dreary work evening/ morning. The interior of the bar is luxuriously decorated, you feel just that little bit special sitting in leather seats under chandelier lighting. The cocktails are an inspired selection, and we worked our way through several with no disappointments. Staff are equally happy to provide recommendations.
For food, I sampled the sirloin sandwich (£15), with watercress and horseradish, and this was accompanied with rosemary fries. I enjoyed this evening sandwich very much. The grilled sourdough was crispy and butter, and the sirloin medium rare and tender. The rosemary on the neighbouring fries was too subtle, but I enjoyed the fry just the same. As a more decadent venue, GNH Bar doesn’t rate so well in value-for-money, but I had a great time with the drinks and food.
