Mooshies, Shoreditch, London

I’ve had two gos with vegan burger joint Mooshies, but it still hasn’t warmed to me completely. It’s good, it’s interesting. But I can’t help feeling something was lacking in the two burgers that I’ve tried so far. Just a little more convincing and I […]

Kebab Delight, Wood Green, London

Kebab Delight, Wood Green, London

Staying in the Wood Green meant making the most of the many, amazing Turkish delicacies nearby. The areas is rich with this community group and that shows in the local cuisine on offer. I was lured in by the sweet wafts of the bain-maries of […]

Japanese Canteen, Aldgate, London

Japanese Canteen, Aldgate, London

The only downside of working in a spot like Aldgate, is that the (near) lunch options aren’t that numerous. As such, I find myself clinging to the places that are the most reliable and the most efficient. When it comes to canteen-style Japanese cuisine that pick is Japanese Canteen.

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

I enjoy irony hunting as much as the next middle-class, poverty tourist hipster. But truth be told, I simply want fried chicken dammit. The houses of chicken are an intriguing institution and there are so many of these stores here in the UK. The ever […]

100 Wardour Street, Soho, London

I came across it as it was partnered with Hot Dinners for a 50% offer. Can’t see no to them savings. I felt 100 Wardour Street was more style than substance when it came to the food. But at these prices, the complaints are limited.

Tulip Restaurant, Canterbury

Tulip Restaurant, Canterbury

Our once-upon-a time in Canterbury came to a close with the Turkish stylings of Tulip Restaurant. We spied it on our trek home and calculated we had plenty of time for a sit down dinner before the long bus ride home. It’s a rather impressive […]

Bleecker Burger, Spitalfields, London

Bleecker Burger, Spitalfields, London

It took me a little bit of time before I got my dirty paws on a Bleecker burger, often regarded as one of London’s best burgers around. And I concur. The burgers are massively juicy and some of the best, most satisfying meat patties I’ve […]

Mother India, Glasgow, Scotland

Mother India, Glasgow, Scotland

The mother of all curries? A name that gets heralded around as one of the city’s top restaurants (let alone Indian restaurants) in Glasgow is Mother India. The UK does such a good job of producing such smashing curries, in part to its long history of emigration and popularity. This count as one of my favourite curries. Mother India continues a rich tradition delivering outstanding Indian cuisine in a relaxed, but upmarket atmosphere.
