This was my second experience of Belles Hot Chicken. Even though my first one was meh, I thought it might be worth giving it another go. This was the newer store in Richmond, and it was a more sleek experience. Although I ended up still […]
For a London food blog, I haven’t done much London restaurant reviews lately at all! That’s because my plans changed a bit and I ended up traveling for a while. As I’m continuing to do so. In between all of that I always return back […]
So… Dotori in Finsbury Park has always been a bit of a mixed bag for me. I agree it’s the best Japanese-Korean restaurant in London. And I’m not sure if I mean that as an aggregate, or that it is the best Japanese restaurant AND the best Korean restaurant. But. And a big but; I always find the service lacking. It’s a ridiculously popular eatery and the both times Ive been there’s also a serious waiting time. Luckily, there’s a pub nearby to nurse a pint until you get the bell.
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 […]
A few weekends ago, my friend Arielle and I found ourselves in Hackney Central on a terribly rainy Saturday. The kind uncle from Bubblechick invited her to take shelter in the store, and funnily enough, we saw ourselves coming back for lunch. It’s right opposite […]
One of my absolute favourite chicken katsu curries in London, in one of the most surprising venues. Actually it’s a really strange mix at Cafe Shelley’s. It’s a sandwich bar, doing Turkish-type wraps, salads and jacket potatoes. Not other Japanese foods in sight. Rumour has it that it was the original Soho katsu curry having first opened its doors in 1975 and its evidently lasted the test of time.
The only downside of working in a spot like Aldgate, is that the (near) lunch options aren’t that numerous. As such, I find myself clinging to the places that are the most reliable and the most efficient. When it comes to canteen-style Japanese cuisine that […]
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 […]
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 is that it prides itself on its wings. To the point that it actually declares itself as “Officially Britain’s Best Buffalo Wings”. Including in their URL (lol). We thought the buffalo wings were pretty good, but there’s not a lot of competition and it wasn’t mind-blowing. But it was good.
