Efes Restaurant, Whitechapel, London

Efes Restaurant, Whitechapel, London

In Whitechapel our culinary religion is in grilled meats. And there’s plenty of places to worship, from: Tayyabs, Lahore Kebab House, Maedah Grill and here at Efes Restaurant. Turkish in design and originally founded in 1975, Efes Restaurants continues the high standards of the locale.  […]

Lahore Kebab House, Whitechapel, London

Lahore Kebab House, Whitechapel, London

Legendary kebab house Lahore Kebab House offers delicious, tantalising Pakistani cuisine. And luckily for me, it’s the closest restaurant to my home. Along with a BYO option for drinks, you trade off having decent service and sticky floors for getting authentic curries, grills and breads. […]

Randy’s Wing Bar, Aldgate, London

Randy’s Wing Bar, Aldgate, London

From Hackney Wicks to the Minories, Randy’s Wing Bar finally comes to the city. And fortunately for us, around the corner from the office. My friend Jey and I escaped the moody air con of the workplace and dove mouth-first into the tasty, fried wings […]

DF/Mexico, Shoreditch, London

DF/Mexico, Shoreditch, London

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 […]

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 […]

Lantana, Shoreditch, London

Lantana, Shoreditch, London

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 […]

Hohaki, Aldgate, London

Hohaki, Aldgate, London

The Hohaki experience is all about a fast, but not furious, mealtime. I headed in a couple evenings for their grilled meat specials. Some very exciting Vietnamese food at this Aldgate restaurant, which knocks the socks off other lunching options. The grilled meats here are […]
