It’s hard to escape the phenomenon that is Wahaca. Well, I did a decent job of trying. Heard good and bad things. But finally, I had the chance for my own taste of their Mexican street food-style dining when my cousin was in town. Turns […]
Kova Patisserie in Soho is the place to go if you want a bite of the millie crepe trend. I was keen to try, but it’s not really my thing. It’s super expensive at £5.50 per slice, and another pound more if you want the […]
I had my first work lunch at DF/Mexico and it’s a joint that’s stuck in my head. For when I need a decent pseudo-Mexican eatery in a hurry, or something for the vegos or gluten-frees. Located around the corner from the Old Truman Brewery, it’s a handy location. The style of the eatery also lends itself to be enjoyable for a long sit-down. The food ranges in success but the tacos are always fair. DF/Mexico’s bottomless agua frescas are another big plus from me.
A few weekends ago, my friend Arielle and I found ourselves in Hackney Central on a terribly rainy Saturday. The kind uncle from Bubblechick invited her to take shelter in the store, and funnily enough, we saw ourselves coming back for lunch. It’s right opposite […]
With spring time on our corner, it won’t be long until I start the first travels of my year. And I can’t share just how excited I am! Lots of new cities, a few favourites and plenty of new eating and snapping opportunities. So before […]
It’s been such a while since my last yum cha experience, so I looked towards our reservation at Phoenix Palace in Marylebone with much delight. A restaurant that resembles the generic setting of a typical kung fu movie, but it leaves a last impacting in terms of the food. Service leaves a bit to be to desired, but as far as yum cha, goes Phoenix Palace does pack a punch.
Cereal-isly? You guys have a cereal-themed cafe? I went along, and I’m glad I did, but it certainly wasn’t killer. The Cereal Killer Cafe is a super happening spot, no doubt driven by a glow of nostalgia and a ounce of curiosity. Service was a […]
Yuu might be in for quite the surprise when you head into Pan Asian Spitalfields restaurant Yuu Kitchen. We certainly had a good one ourselves. This was for a Friday work lunch, we had been wandering around Aldgate East aimlessly, looking for a suitable restaurant […]
I often find myself craving an Antipodean style of brunch in the weekend. There’s something to the laidback vibe, the flowing coffee, food that looks as good as it tastes. This feeling led to me to Lantana in Shoreditch, a very Australian cafe offering one of the best brunch options in the east. I didn’t find the portions outrageously-sized or anything, but I enjoyed both dishes I had. A punch of vibrance and some good cooking.
