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 […]

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 […]

StickyWings, Brick Lane, London

StickyWings, Brick Lane, 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 […]
