Shibuya Soho, Chinatown, London

Shibuya Soho, Chinatown, London

It didn’t take me long to crave Japanese food again after returning from my November Japan trip! I spied Shibuya Soho on Shaftesbury Avenue one evening and thought it looked the perfect remedy for my withdrawal. Japanese in name, but not fully in effort, this […]

Shoryu Ramen, Soho, London

Shoryu Ramen, Soho, London

Nothing beats a bowl of warm tonkotsu ramen on a cold evening. And so far, every London evening has been cold. Well, almost every. I’ve made it to Shoryu Ramen in Kingly Court of Soho two times and both have been warming for the stomach and […]

Eat Tokyo, Soho, London

Eat Tokyo, Soho, London

My jaw dropped when I saw the size of the Eat Tokyo Soho katsu curry of my neighbour. £9 gets you an insanely large bowl with surely what must be a kilo of rice, curry and what, five individual breasts of chicken? It’s all so overwhelming […]

Island Poké, Soho, London

Island Poké, Soho, London

The poké craze was in the midst of just kicking off in Australia when I made my move to London earlier this year. There’s a lot to like about this Hawaiian dish – light, fresh, healthy and celebrating the simplicity of its ingredients. Island Poké […]

Bao, Soho, London

Bao, Soho, London

I am such a fan of Bao that I’ve been twice in one week. After discovering it’s delectable Taiwanese-fusion styled treats I couldn’t keep away. On one occasion it was lunch, and the other dinner, and both times didn’t have much of a wait at […]

Gail’s Bakery, Soho, London

Gail’s Bakery, Soho, London

Gail’s Bakery is an artisan bakery chain in London. I’ve been to two of their stores and had some mixed results. It’s not the cheapest thing either. Gail’s Bakery do know their bread and they do a most excellent job of it. The name comes […]

Dirty Bones, Carnaby, Soho, London

Dirty Bones, Carnaby, Soho, London

Carnaby Street does events every now and then and we took advantage of a recent one for a cheaper (cough, bargain) dinner over at Dirty Bones. There’s three branches of Dirty Bones in Carnaby, Soho and Shoreditch. Their menu is New York style American comfort […]

Chin Chin Dessert Club, Soho, London

Chin Chin Dessert Club, Soho, London

The Willy Wonka of the London dessert scene, Chin Chin exploded at Camden Market (not literally). Now they’ve since opened another store right on Greek Street in Soho. This was dangerously close to my office. I ended up doing a cheeky dessert run on a […]

HipChips, Soho, London

HipChips, Soho, London

An admirable concept, but it just doesn’t do anything for me. The mission objective of HipChips is fancy chips, or as you say here in the UK, crisps. But all the indulgence and fun in a packet of chips gets sucked away and replaced by […]
