Gourmet Sushi, Brick Lane, London

Gourmet Sushi, Brick Lane, London

It’s sushi time here on Brick Lane. I was ready for some rolled rice treats for my lunchtime and headed over to Gourment Sushi. I sampled their special hoisin duck sushi as well as a serve of the karage chicken. Both were decent. Not the […]

Mooshies, Shoreditch, London

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Eat Saigon, Spitalfields, London

StickyWings make for sticky hands. I had my first visitors to my new locale in East London and we headed along to the Zomato well-rated StickyWings on Brick Lane. From the looks of things it’s changed owners a number of times, but was hasn’t changed […]

Jones & Sons, Dalston, London

Jones & Sons, Dalston, London

S,unday roast, it’s been a little while. Naive little me thought I’d have been eating these up weekly since my move to London. But it hasn’t been the case at all, I’m barely getting out of bed in the mornings. At least on this Sunday […]

Thai Express, Aldgate, London

Thai Express, Aldgate, London

I’ve had three goes with Thai Express in Aldgate, with lots of mixed results. The first order I had was for the Pad Thai which was very disappointing. But the curries and stir-fry was much better! In all cases Thai Express feels like a typical […]

Dum Dum Donutterie, Shoreditch, London

Dum Dum Donutterie, Shoreditch, London

Merry Christmas! I’m not big on the festive occasion but I’m always a sucker for any themed food. I popped along to Dum Dum Donutterie in Boxpark, Shoreditch on my very first stroll around my new neighbourhood. I picked up one of the Rudolph the […]
