Breddos Tacos, Clerkenwell, London

Breddos Tacos, Clerkenwell, London

Early on in my UK residency, It took an ex-street stall serving modern, fusion-brunch tacos to convince me that London has some hidden dining gems. And convince me Breddos Tacos sure did. My temporary flatmates and I headed around to Clerkenwell to check out this […]

The Modern Pantry, Clerkenwell, London

The Modern Pantry, Clerkenwell, London

It doesn’t look it at first instance but the Modern Pantry lives up its “modern” moniker. It offers an inventive menu with worldly flavours and contrasting influences. However, I didn’t quite enjoy my experience at The Modern Pantry as much as I was expecting. That’s not […]

L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele, Stoke Newington, London

New to London, new to Stoke Newington and with a lot of pizzaz. Formerly queue-centric, but much more relaxed these days. Still loud. L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele is the latest extension on the book-famous Neapolitan pie joint. A local favourite for many years in its […]

Cereal Killer Cafe, Brick Lane, London

Cereal Killer Cafe, Brick Lane, London

Cereal-isly? You guys have a cereal-themed cafe? I went along, and I’m glad I did, but it certainly wasn’t killer. It’s a super happening spot, no doubt driven by a glow of nostalgia and a ounce of curiosity. Service was a killjoy. You have to […]

Aladin, Brick Lane, London

Aladin, Brick Lane, London

Arabian nights, like Arabian days, more often than not, are hotter than hot, in a lot of good ways. It’s hard to not feel a little nostalgia when you’re dining in a place called Aladin with some quaint hand painted Disney (and other) characters adorning […]

Pizza East, Shoreditch

Pizza East, Shoreditch

Our final stop on the East End London food tour was at the hip and new Pizza East, a super trendy location with plenty of seating to match. It was a sweet finish to things, with the Time Out rated Salted Chocolate Carmel tart. It’s […]
