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 […]

Eat Tokyo, Holborn, London

Eat Tokyo, Holborn, London

You can never know for sure, but although I had another decent meal at another Eat Tokyo, my stomach was feeling worse for wear afterwards. I’ve been to exactly one other branch of this chain and the game here is the same. Cheap, fast, fuss-free […]

Hummus Bros, Bloomsbury, London

Hummus Bros, Bloomsbury, London

Back to another Hummus Bros, I’ve grown quite fond of the yellow stuff since my last few visits. Fond enough for Hummus Bros to become my choice when a friend from home who needed some food delivery. Hummus Bros travels well for the most part […]

Leon, Holborn, London

Leon, Holborn, London

I needed a fast dinner in time for my short film festival screening and popped along to Leon. Leon’s a bit of an institution here in the United Kingdom. I liken it to an upmarket, fancy version of the usual McDs. There’s just under 50 […]

Chilango, Holborn, London

Just chill Sam. And I did with a burrito from Chilango in tow. Chilango was first┬ástarted from two ex-Skype guys who found it hard to find good Mexican food Over the last ten years, Chilango have expanded to almost a dozen stores littered around London. […]

Domino’s, Bloomsbury, London

Domino’s, Bloomsbury, London

Each month in our office, we get a free lunch shout on the last Friday. Apparently it’s usually greasy, so that covers off my usual urge for pizza any other time of the month. March’s choice was Domino’s. The order was massive and there was […]

Pret A Manger, Strand, London

Pret A Manger, Strand, London

It’s kinda gross how many Pret A Mangers there are all over London. Decidedly mediocre, it’s sad that the only cafes that can afford the inflated rents around here are the chains. It’s real sad. All the foods are ready for you to pick from […]

The Pasty Shop, Euston, London

The Pasty Shop, Euston, London

There’s a delicious smell of butteriness that wafts throughout many of the stations here in London. That’s usually due to the presence of The Pasty Shop chain, which pumps out gigantic filled parcels of meat-like substances. This is a nice contrast to the usual smell […]

Pizzeria – The Dickens Inn,  City of London

Pizzeria – The Dickens Inn, City of London

“You went to that tourist trap? The food is so terrible. The service is even worse!” *record scratch* *freeze frame* Yup, that’s me. You’re probably wondering how I ended up in this situation. I’m Sam, a food blogger, new to London. I don’t know places. […]
