KooKoo, South Melbourne

KooKoo, South Melbourne

It’s great to be back in Melbourne and funnily enough, also back in my old (work hood) of South Melbourne again too. Over the course of just under two years, not too much has changed in the city. But KooKoo is one of the new […]

8bit., Melbourne CBD

8bit., Melbourne CBD

My first experience of 8bit in the city was terrible, and I vowed never to return. But I was hungry and enticed by the offer of a free burger (via the Liven app) that it made me go in for another go. And I’m glad […]

Harvey’s, Liberty Village, Toronto

Harvey’s, Liberty Village, Toronto

Now here’s a fast food concept I’d love to see more often. Harvey’s in Canada does fully customisable burgers with a solid range of desserts, sides, vegetarian options and great prices. I ended up visiting the Liberty Village Harvey’s a few times during my time in Toronto.

BRGR.Co, Soho, London

BRGR.Co, Soho, London

BRGR.Co in Soho was my first taste of a new eating out program called MealPal. This subscription service started out in the states before making its way to London. How it works is that you pay a set amount (£4.60) for pre-paid, pre-ordered lunches. At […]

Freddy Schilling – Die Hamburger Manufaktur, Cologne

Freddy Schilling – Die Hamburger Manufaktur, Cologne

Time for another burger review! On this weekend I was in Cologne (or Köln) and was massively hungry after spending the day at Kölner Zoo. Looking at all those animals all morning and afternoon left me, well, salivating! Freddy Schilling – Die Hamburger Manufaktur stands for homemade burgers […]

Duck and Waffle Local, Covent Garden, London

Duck and Waffle Local, Covent Garden, London

Duck and Waffle Local is the spinoff sibling from the iconic Duck and Waffle high in the sky at level 40 of the Heron Tower. I’ve had two visits to this Covent Garden/ Haymarket/ St James’s location, with extremely mixed results. Overall I conclude that it certainly does give you a taste of the same duck-themed menu, but without that fabulous view it doesn’t quite have the same level of glamour or success.

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 […]

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

I enjoy irony hunting as much as the next middle-class, poverty tourist hipster. But truth be told, I simply want fried chicken dammit. The houses of chicken are an intriguing institution and there are so many of these stores here in the UK. The ever […]

100 Wardour Street, Soho, London

100 Wardour Street, Soho, London

100 Wardour Street is the new form restaurant/ bar/ lounge from the previous longstanding Marquee Club and Floridita. This was all well before my time. I came across it as it was partnered with Hot Dinners for a 50% offer. Can’t see no to them savings. I felt 100 Wardour Street was more style than substance when it came to the food. But at these prices, the complaints are limited.
